Handy Backup Disaster Recovery

Handy Backup™ Disaster Recovery lets you back up and restore data independently of your main operating system, using a recovery Flash or USB drive. It is installed from Handy Backup (downloaded above), or through Disaster Recovery Installation Kit, a Wizard that guides you through the process of creation of a recovery drive.

Version: 1.3 (built on May 27, 2015)
Download size: 4.6 MB

Basically, Handy Backup Disaster Recovery consists of two parts: Environment and Application. During setup, the Installation Kit downloads installation packages for these two parts, and then installs them to a Flash or USB drive. It is recommended to not delete these packages, as otherwise updating the application will require you to download them again.

  • Environment: version 2.0 (built on May 27, 2015). Download size: 273 MB. This part is rarely updated.
  • Application: version 1.5 (built on May 27, 2015). Download size: 38 MB. All future modifications will apply to this part of the program.
