Recently, a large oil distribution corporation in the US had to stop all their operations because of ransomware attack. They could only begin their operation after a secret settlement with the people behind the ransomware. But you do not have to go through such situations if and only if you get in the habit of keeping regular backups of your important files, your drives and even the entire systems. It is not very difficult owing to the excellent backup solutions like Handy Backup that can provide backup for standalone computers as well as networks.
Handy Backup offers many advanced features for backing up your files, restore the files easily and for syncing your files across different locations. We can backup files from source locations such as folders, local drives, network drives, FTP servers, emails, database, cloud storage, disk clones, virtual machines etc. For the backup destination storage locations we can choose from local drives, network drives, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, S3 Cloud, FTP servers (FTP, FTPS, SFTP), WebDAV, Yandex Disk, BackBlaze, Box.net, 4Shared and many more.
Handy Backup can compress the backups to save the storage space. It can pack all the files into a single compressed ZIP archive. It can also compress each file into a separate compressed ZIP archive of its own. The software also provides high grade encryption to protect your files. The encryption is password based and you have to supply the password for later restoring from the encrypted backups.
Handy Backup can schedule your backups for automatic backups. For this we have to create a backup task and then configure it to be scheduled. We can choose the task run time, and a frequency of running it which can be daily, weekly, or monthly. We can also make the task run only one time.
Handy Backup is not a free software, but we can use the trial version for 30 days of free testing.
