Hot Disk Imaging and Entire Computer Cloning in Next-Gen Handy Backup Utility by Novosoft


Novosoft LLC, the provider of next-gen file backup software, introduced the hot imaging functionality of Handy Backup utility. The new app edition is to take system snapshots on the run.

Alliance, Ohio, February 14, 2012 - Novosoft, a global custom software developer and information system service provider, reported hot HDD imaging function for Handy Backup, the advanced backup application. The new release of the solution will feature intelligent copying of HDD partitions or the entire hard disk with improved operation duration, minor requirements for PC user skills, and the smallest number of steps to be made. The recent hot image backup functionality is run for Windows OS, and simple hard disk drive imaging is also available for Linux systems.

"There are technologies which get a solid rank of a toughie. Hard disk imaging has get one too. There were times when creating a snapshot of a HD needed those not so trivial operations: logging off and in between many systems on a standalone computer, starting low-level data storing instead of file-based backup, shutting down all OS processes, creating a system disk to download from for imaging the first system, and so on. With the new Handy Backup featuring hot disk imaging, those are nothing but incubus of the past, gone to oblivion" said Alexander Prichalov, the director of Novosoft Research Division.

The reported latest version of the Handy Backup software offers hot image backup functionality. From now on the creating of a system hard drive snapshot takes as small as choosing the "Disk image" point among "What to back up" choices in the utility wizard, in a few steps. No logging off Windows or shutting down the operating system activities are required. The retrieval clone of the disk is created on the run.

The hot hard disk imaging process organized that way demonstrates improved operation time, insignificant requirements for PC user qualification, and the least ever number of clicks to be done.

Besides the full OS image backup, the alternatives are individual hard disk partitions and partition table.

The innovated hot imaging is optimized for making snapshots of operating systems. Also, there is the traditional function for imaging Ubuntu HDDs, with the Handy Backup Disaster recovery bootable hard drive making. The program editions to feature hot imaging are Home Professional, Small Server, and Network Server.
