  1. I think I will be able to recommend Handy Backup to my friends if I like it.

  2. so far I have cloned hard drives to hybrid drives manufactured by Seagate as well as ssd drives manufactured by intel and ocz. I would like to see how consumer friendly this software is, Ease of use for the consumer is a big thing compared to Norton, Acrolis, and other such software.

  3. Hey Onuora greetings from Northen Ontario the topgunn will be a proud Handy Backup Canadian spokesman. Cheers [email protected]

  4. Since the demise of backup and restore in Windows XP, I have never found a really helpful and useful backup. I have tried several alternative (some of which I paid for) and they all eventually failed. Once company said, “Oh, we don’t support Window 7 client to Windows 7 server. (What! It has been working for years.) Now, I manually backup “My Documents,” which is where I have everything, to SkyDrive. Slow and not great. I would love to have a backup program that would:
    1.Allow user to specify which folders to back up.
    2. Make a full backup.
    3. Make an incremental backup on a schedule.
    This seems really basic, but I have not found one yet that easily does what I want.

  5. how do you sighn up for the free give away

    Have used Windows Home Server for backups and it has worked fine, but it requires Ethernet connectivity and is now discontinued. Have been weighing options for an alternative and this seems to really fit the bill! Have had to recover several times with a disk image, so I appreciate the value of having such a tool!

  7. I would like a free licence as I am now using two different programs for backup, both are not user friendly

  8. I need this software because I’m really in need of a backup program but cannot afford to experiment with different options. I need to get a really good one, reliable one. I hope this is it!
