Oops! Backup

Setup once and get relaxed:

Truly amazing!!! We just need to setup once and then let all thing up to Oops Backup. It tracks the choose files and folders in background, while you are working (Silent File Versioning); as soon as it get new versions of files or changes in existing files and folders, it saves a copy of those changes automatically (BackInTime).

Backup Processing:

Oops Backup introduces ReverseDelta incremental technology that only backups the changes you made to a file without backing up the whole file again every time you make a change. It also ensures that the latest version of a file is always available in its entirety and not as a delta file.

Oops Backup integrates with Microsoft Volume Shadow (VSS) technology. This integration allows Oops!Backup to automatically back up files that are currently open and in use such as PST files.

A Kind of Mini Mode:

Oops Backup starts with Windows by default and runs in background to detect changes to selected files and folders. It verifies file versioning and fire backup task without interrupting you, when needed. It is recommended to backup data to external drives, if it so it detects the backup drive automatically, when they are connected or plugged. It gives the total freedom to users on move.
