Editors' Review

by   / May 20, 2009

Handy Backup Standard offers users an easy, streamlined approach to backing up important files and folders. Novice users will especially appreciate the program's easy navigation.

The program's user interface doesn't waste your time with too many details. A menu and command toolbar resides at the top of the window. Newly created tasks and their details reside in the panels below the toolbar. A wizard walks you through the process of creating a new task. We were able to quickly add the files that we wanted to backup. From there, we were able to choose the backup location, including external devices such as a USB, CD, or DVD. The program comes with both compression and encryption features. Locating the schedule feature took a little time, but once we found it, we were able to customize our backup schedules on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. The Log feature let us save logs of all of our backups for future reference, a small but important detail we appreciated.

Our only complaint with the program is that it installed icons on our Desktop without our permission. Still, novice users will find useful tips for getting started, and the built-in Help feature is sure to answer any questions. All in all, we highly recommend this program for any user interested in reliable file backup.
