Handy Backup Remarkable Hard Disk Cloning Features for Migration to Windows 8

Novosoft, the acclaimed provider of data backup solutions, presented the hard disk imaging backup software functionality for Handy Backup, version 7.3.0, oriented toward migration from Windows 7 (and older editions of the OS) to Windows 8. The new version of the Handy Backup software helps make a snapshot of the entire system before installing Windows 8, being a tool also supporting backup of other platforms recently released, Windows Server 2012, SQL Server 2012, and others.

“There are common sense backup suggestions for anyone considering migration to the new OS we kept in mind preparing this update of Handy Backup. First, even with the OS upgrade functionality, it is much safer and reliable to have a separate backup of your entire Windows system, restorable when required. Second, getting advantage of a Windows 8 compatible backup software tool should be among the first things one does once the new OS configuration is finished, to save the initial state and be able to update backups independently of native Windows tools. Those two suggestion are exactly what the disk imaging editions of Handy Backup deliver to the users,”- said Aleks Dolgushev, the Head of Handy Backup Business Development Department.

Hard disk drive imaging was announced as a key component of the highly anticipated October update of the Handy Backup software. The functionality brings backup of the entire hard drive, including operating system, settings, drivers, apps, and user data. The backup is made via low-level disk image copying, which is commonly recognized as the most accurate copy the contents of the hard drive and restore it to a working state from a backup. Thus, in the case of hard drive failure, you can restore not only the user files, but also the entire system with all the settings, programs, and drivers.

The new version supports Windows 8 in several ways. First, it helps to back up crucial data in the Windows older than the newly released, so errors during migration to the new OS won’t cause irreversible data loss. One of most secure options supported is making a complete snapshot of the entire system migrated from, so Windows 8 can be rolled back to the previous OS effortlessly, any time desired. Second, starting from the version 7.3.0, Handy Backup operates under Windows 8 perfectly well.

The Windows 8 oriented editions of Handy Backup supporting hard drive cloning and disk imaging are already available on the software brand official web site,
