Handy Backup Free is perfect if your main purpose is to keep a local copy of important files and folders. It provides an easy way to select important documents and schedule automatic backup jobs that will keep them protected from loss or corruption.
Note: Current version of Handy Backup Free is based on Handy Backup 5.8, which hasn’t changed since 2007. Very soon we will release an up-to-date version which will be compatible with paid editions and include all the latest technical achievements. Before that, we recommend that you use the Home Standard edition instead.
