Running Backup as Windows Service

Comments: 0

Handy Backup can be configured to run in the background and back up data as a Windows service. This feature allows users to schedule backup tasks only once, and always have them started in time even if nobody is logged on.

How It Works

When you switch the application into service mode, its icon disappears from system tray, but the respective process is not removed from Windows Task Manager. It is launched automatically on operating system startup and makes Handy Backup operation invisible and independent of users.


Run as Windows Service

Recommended Solution

The ability to launch Handy Backup as service appears especially useful for an enterprise edition - Handy Backup Server Network. With it, a central computer (which is used to manage all tasks) has a server application installed, and networked computers have client applications which run as Windows service and grant the server access to their data. As a result, data from workstations is backed up invisibly, and people who work on them may never know about it.

Handy Backup Server Network

Backup Software from Novosoft LLC. 940 USD per license.

Handy Backup Server Network

Performs backup as Windows Service. The solution is Windows 8/7/Vista/XP and 2012/2008/2003 Server compatible. Network Agents for Windows and Linux OS are available.


Advantages of running backups in a Windows Service Mode:

  • Invisible operation under Windows 8/7/Vista/XP and 2012/2008/2003 Server
  • Possible to run backups of two and more users at the same time
  • Backups run with low priority and don’t interfere with other programs and applications
  • Smart email notification system and tray icon signals informing about backup progress.

Remote Backup Service

Remote servers provide the most reliable and secure storage for data protected from fire, flood, theft, etc. They deliver even higher level of automation: when you back up data online, you don’t need to worry about changing media (e.g. when you backup to DVD disks), create proper conditions for tapes, etc. All you need to do is order storage from a hosting provider and configure proper backup plan and then you may forget about backups for months.
