Ooops!Backup software review from Ian Mead

Ian D. Mead,

David from Altaro contacted me with a couple of personal comments a while ago and as a result of that I took a look at his site and products.

I have to say, I have been very impressed. My expectation was otherwise as I prefer to have a whole system backup, these days with some form of image. After looking at Oops!Backup I thought I would give it a try.

It really is great for keeping multiple copies of documents (and other files) backed up, and equally important - easily restored by version. I think this is it's obvious but greatest attribute.

Oops!Backup software box

It is easily setup and will just keep backing up any documents, pictures and whatever you decide as they change automatically at an interval you decide. You can also set up a secondary backup drive.

We have all seen a lot of backup software, but this is really worth a look.

You can get more information here:


You will find all the information you need and a free trial.

I wasn't asked to write a review and receive nothing for it. I just saw what I thought was a great product and wanted to return the favor many have shown to IDM and our products over the years.

This post honours you Ian. I allways thought you're a nice guy (Since my long story with UE when I read the birth of you organization and at the time we can made a donation by buying your software).

I'm really proud to be one of your customers.

I've done an evaluation and wanted to share the feedback give to Altaro after the evalution ended and I've decided not to purchase the product for the following reasons.

1) Restore user-interface is confusing
the paradigm used by restore is completely contradicting the familiar user-interfaces used by Windows because folder hierarchies are not used!
This is absolutely confusing when you under pressure because something went wrong!

2) user interface only available in English for now

Is this a Physical or Remote Backup

Opps Backup is a Physical or Remote Backup? I am using SOS Online Backup (www.sosonlinebackup.com) and backing up data to multiple PCs
