  • Image files compression. Image files can be compressed to save free storage location.
  • Removable media support. Image files can be stored on removable media.
  • Multiple partition making. Data from a disk image can be retrieved on a free (unpartitioned) space on any part on a hard disk.
  • Disk to Disk copy. A whole hard disk can be directly copied on another one.
  • Activity Results. When hard disk image is successfully developed or the action goes wrong the results can be automatically sent over e-mail or an external application can be launched.

You can manually install one Windows system only, do an image of system, and then apply it on all other workstations, save your time and costs. If you wish to retrieve only certain files from a disk image, you can connect that image as a virtual hard disk and copy those files exactly from the disk image using Windows Explorer or any other file utility.

It is highly recommended that the Windows partition that is backed up remains unchanged during the process. If you or your system modifies contents of the hard disk drive while Handy Backup program tries to back it up, then the operation may fail. The best case is when you boot from another hard drive or disk partition and add image of the primary system drive to the backup project.
