Handy Backup Enhances the Server Backup Solution with Smart Backup Automation
07/23/2011

Novosoft LLC, a reputed developer of data backup software, announced advanced functionality for backup automation in Handy Backup, the software for data backup, file sync, and disaster recovery.

Online PR News – 23-July-2011 – – Alliance, Ohio, July 19, 2011 – Novosoft, an international software development and IT consultancy company, announced the expansion of Handy Backup functionality. The backup software now features the choice to configure backup automation preferences with a few mouse clicks or arrangement of file masks, impressive MySQL backup, and cost-effective online backup cloud storage.
"There is a line which you cross and find that backup is anything but not simple anymore. Here is an example. In every data backup utility (at least in those that are worth mentioning), you can choose whether to back up a folder entirely or only some subfolders and files in it. But when you check mark there is a dilemma traditional for this kind of software: the ticks you set, do they mean you want to back up only the selected objects or back up the entire folder and skip the excluded objects?" said Alexander Prichalov, the head of Novosoft Development Department.
"Naturally, this dilemma is resolved with the use of file masks. But for many users this solution is that line where backup gets complicated: using masks might be tricky and non-trivial. With a brand new "Lock the Folder" option in Handy Backup that line of hard backup stuff is moved away. Setting the way new objects are processed is now an action in a few mouse clicks," added Mr. Prichalov.
Handy Backup now features "Lock the Folder", a novel option to manage automated backup preferences. When it comes to complex backup tasks (like configuration of an enterprise network), it is often required to manage nontrivial backup settings. Particularly, as a folder to be backed up is specified, there is often a necessity to choose how new files and subfolders to appear in this folder are to be processed. Basically, this type of settings is managed with the use of file masks. But this type of management strongly relies on user experience and advanced user skills.
As an alternative to file masks, Handy Backup now offers the "Lock the Folder" option helping to accomplish the task in a few mouse clicks. To "lock" a folder one needs to right-click it with the mouse in the window of the backup task wizard and set the "locked" status. When a folder is "locked", new objects that appear in it will not be backed up, i.e. the backup will be applied only to files and folders selected during the backup task configuration.
The new option boosts the efficiency of the Handy Backup software line which is specifically notable for Handy Backup Server (http://www.handybackup.net/handybackup-server.shtml ). With the centralized one-man administration for network backup, novel MySQL backup (and plug-ins for MS SQL, Oracle, Lotus Notes, and other ODBC-compatible database backup included), automatic file- and image-based backup, and refined pricing for online backup cloud storage, the server solution from Handy Backup is now probably the most powerful yet cost-efficient utility in its' class.
