Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

handy backup pro

A while back we offered 3 Handy Backup Pro licenses to WebUpd8 readers. Well, it's time to do it again! Read on!

Firstly, what is Handy Backup? Well, it's an automatic backup application which you can use to backup data on CD/DVD-RW devices, LAN and remote FTP servers. While Handy Backup only runs on Windows, it can also be used in Linux with the help of Wine - especially since the supported filesystems include: NTFS, FAT16, FAT32, Ext2, Ext3, ReiserFS, Reiser4 and others.

Handy Backup Professional also includes Disk image backup which allows you to back up a full had drive with an OS installed (including all application settings and so on) which can later be fully restored, and also it includes database backup - allows you to back up database tables without stopping the service (hot database backup), using ODBC connectivity.

Handy Backup also comes with a server backup version (Download Handy Backup Server - trial for 30 days) but that's not included in the Professional package we'll be giving away. However for personal use, the Pro version should be enough!

The contest: 3 Handy Backup Professional Licenses Giveaway

Here's what you must do to get a Handy Backup Professional license (each license is worth $99 but you'll get it for free): simply comment to this post using a valid email address (so don't comment with a Twitter account and such, just using your email address so we know where to send the license) until Saturday morning (10 A.M. GMT+3) - that's in less than 2 days. Then I'll make a draw and send the winners the Handy Backup Pro license. That is all (not a real contest, I know).

Note: this is not a paid post, I didn't win anything by publishing it (other then the posibility to give you a license) - I didn't even get a license myself.
