Hardware and software errors, viruses and malware, simple human mistakes – these are just a few reasons why it is important to care about data loss prevention and protect the associated operational processes. While insuring hardware assets seems to be manageable by most people, the question of insuring the most valuable asset, information and information’s integrity is of the same, if not higher, importance?

  1. That sounds like a very interesting backup software, and it’s nice to see there’s an option to back up email accounts. Can it work with Thunderbird too?

    I will be checking your site.

  2. I’m curious as to how the synchronization utility works. I recently picked up a second laptop for several reasons (HP TX2 tablet for note-taking, lighter, multi-touch curiosities, etc) but still prefer to use my old one at times (larger screen/keyboard and faster processor). I’ve been fiddling with other file synchronization utilities so I can have access to all my files on both, but none of them so far do exactly what I want. I will have to give it a try soon!

  3. My laptop was recently infected by a certain dogyx virus which changes all my documents and folders to exe extension. I have manage to clean it with AVG free (since it is the only one that detected it) but somehow I still believe that dogyx is still lurking inside my laptop because every time I use my pendrive it will be infected wiyh dogyx. FYI, I have disinfect my pendrive many times and even reformat it, so I suspect its the laptop. How can Handy Backup ensure that all my backups will not have traces of dogyx?
