Not long ago, I shared a free Backup tool for Windows called AOMEI Backuper. I had emphasized a lot on why backup is very important and one should always have their important data backup. It was a free tool with all basic features but it lacked scheduling and a few more features.
Today, I am sharing a new Windows tool called Handy Backup. This tool comes in both Free and Premium version. While the free version is a basic backup tool, the premium version has loads of features in it.
The premium version called Handy Backup Home Standard is priced at $39 per license but the company was kind enough to give us 20 license keys to share with our readers.
Even though it does a lot of stuff, I particularly wanted to emphasize on its feature to backup Skype, Emails, PowerPoint presentations, locked Files, Photoshop and more.

Handy Backup is a fully automatic backup solution for your Windows PC that comes with scheduling feature. From an individual file to disk partitions and from operating system too entire hard disk, this backup software can handle them all. You can copy, restore and do all that you would ever want to do using a backup software.
Talking about the program’s user interface, it’s completely simple and damn easy-to-use. It is absolutely a no-nonsense user interface, I must say. At the top of the program window, you will see a menu and command toolbar. You can see all the newly created tasks and their details in the panels below the toolbar.
For making things simpler, there is a step-by-step wizard that walks you through any task you wish to do, say like backup, restore, or synch. You can easily edit various options in any of these tasks. In case you wish to do a similar task again, you need not go through the wizard, instead you can simply duplicate a task and edit their related options.
I was quickly able to add the files that I wanted to backup and then choose the backup location where wanted the files to be stored say external devices such as a USB, CD, or DVD.

What makes the software more interesting and desiring is its scheduler. Handy Backup has an adaptable scheduler that makes it easy to define the backup plan and run backup and recovery tasks automatically from hourly to monthly basis. You can also run them manually whenever you want.
