The software now is oriented toward multiple platforms and mixed-OS networks, but still, Windows compatibility is of major importance. So, as soon as the Windows 8 beta version has got available for download, we hurried to test the common data protection functionality by Handy Backup for the new OS. Here come the results: all the basic backup features work pretty smooth. The next step? Centralized data protection management for Windows 8 networks is what we are testing right this moment. Stay in touch," said Alexander Prichalov, the head of Novosoft Development Department.
