Press Release Summary: The new 6.0 version of Novosoft key product has been added to
Microsoft\'s list of software compatible with Windows Vista.

Press Release Body: January 28, 2008 - Novosoft LLC announced that Handy Backup 6.0,
the latest version of its award-winning data protection software, after exhaustive
testing has been approved by Microsoft for carrying the "Works with Windows Vista"
logo to ensure customers have an optimal experience when protecting data on
computers running the Windows Vista operating system.
Handy Backup is an all-in-one solution for backing up valuable information,
restoring it in case of an unforeseen emergency and synchronizing files between
computers on a network. With this software consumers, who are new to backing up
their data, and experienced users, who want to save time, have at their disposal a
set of powerful yet easy-to-use tools to safeguard precious files. And now they can
do this even more efficiently.
"A number of tests have been performed and all of them prove that Handy Backup
completely meets the performance, ease-of-use, and security standards for
Microsoft\'s powerful new operating system." - said Dmitriy Samborsky, Head of
Novosoft Product Department. \"We have done a great job to realize this and are much
pleased that our efforts have been rewarded."
Windows Vista compatibility was implemented in the software about a year ago and now
it has been officially acknowledged which means that the program meets the highest
standards of reliability and security. Tests proved that Handy Backup works with
different configurations of Windows Vista correctly without the need to change
system settings even after updating the OS. This became possible because of a new
architecture introducing multiuser support, digital certificates for all program
files, long file name support etc., which results in considerably increased security
and stability.
The application installer has been changed and now combines all versions of the
product (Standard, Standard DVD, Professional, Full and Server) in one package. Thus
the user has the opportunity to install a stand-alone version, Server version and
client agents coming with Handy Backup Server using the same installer. Such
approach seems to be more convenient as it simplifies switching from one version to
another and delivers all the power of Handy Backup at once.
Apart of that all versions of Handy Backup now include the Windows Service Mode
functionality by default, even those that have not been providing such feature -
Standard and Standard DVD. With Handy Backup 6.0 these versions can be also run in
Windows Service Mode and protect valuable information automatically without human
intervention which is more efficient than scheduling.
In addition Handy Backup 6.0 implements completely new, more flexible functionality.
Users are now encouraged to take advantage of include/exclude file masks not only
when backing up and recovering their data, but when synchronizing as well. Also MS
SQL backup feature has been considerably improved. Now the program allows even
novices to perform backup of MS SQL databases quickly and easily, conserving all the
information that the database contains, including views, store procedures,
functions, etc., just in a few clicks.
\"We are proud to be among software manufacturers to meet the high standards
established for the new operating system. Now our current and potential customers
can be assured that Handy Backup 6.0 complies with the new features of Windows Vista
and allows completing backup tasks faster and more securely.\" - said Nataliya
Sigaeva, Head of Novosoft Marketing Department. "Obtaining the logo is just a step
on the way of getting our software certified for Windows Vista. This is our goal and
I hope with the next release of Handy Backup we'll achieve it."
