SOS Online Backup is a Windows software application whose purpose is to help you back up files and folders to the cloud and restore them in case of system crash or data loss.
The utility employs a wizard-like approach for helping you carry out the backup process. This mode is suitable especially for less experienced users, as they are offered assistance throughout the entire configuration process.
A backup task can be activated at the end of the wizard, automatically (without user intervention), or when Windows user is not logged on.
The utility is able to automatically scan several preset locations (Documents, Images, Music, Video) from your computer so you can easily back up the content of the target directories.
What’s more, you can make the app skip files smaller or larger than a custom value, exclude folders and items, exclude files by type (e.g. TMP, LOG), as well as add custom file types to be included in the scan.
You may preview the scan results in a dedicated panel, along with information about the name, path, type, size, and date when it was last modified. The tool also reveals the total number of files and size.
In addition, you can make use of a tree-like display for manually selecting the folders and files that you want to back up.
SOS Online Backup gives you the possibility to run scheduled backups hourly, daily, weekly or monthly, and on specific days of the week. In addition, the app is able to send email reports at the end of the backup.
During backups the app reveals a summary with details about the account name, backup type, failed items, progress, and speed. A log panel records all actions and possible errors, and you may also pause or resume the job.
