Here comes another giveaway. Today I will talk about Handybackup Standard which can Backup , Restore and Synchronize your data easily over various storage media. As most of you know that every computer user should be keeping backups of his data plus system regularly so that it can be restored if something happens with your system or your storage media. But this can be a tiresome job and you need specialized tools for this work.

Handy Backupâ„¢ Standard is an easy-to-use backup software designed to perform automated backup of your computer.

I installed the trial version on my system (Windows XP). Installation was smooth with a setup file of 14.1 MB. The interface or menu of the program was too simple. Perhaps I expect more than what I saw. The start-up Wizard provides three options to backup or restore or Synchronize data.

If you go for backup option, it provides good options to back up data like data, registry, Disk Image, outlook express, my documents and much more. You can choose the backup option you need and you are done.

It also gives you option to backup location like local drive, FTP, SFTP, CD/DVD drives etc. This makes the backup and restore process much easier and you can use whatever storage media you are comfortable with.

Backup feature too provides same set of options, obviously in a opposite way i.e. here you are restoring your data which is opposite to backing it up.Full list of features that it provides are listed here. Also, synchronization feature over FTP , SFTP is good for webmasters like us.

It also provides a plugin system where plugins can be used to backup and restore additional applications like firefox, thunderbird, yahoo messenger, winamp and many more. Some of the advance plugins are not free which is a negative aspect of this.

The graphical interface though looks too dull and perhaps the guys at Handybackup need to work a bit on this aspect.
