I was fortunate enough to be a beta tester for Oops!Backup so I have some experience and my endorsement for the product is on the Altaro download page. Just wanted to add that this product is fantastic and worth an investment, but as you have a chance to win a free license, don't miss this great opportunity to get your hands on a copy.

I never heard of this software but on reading it, I really like the fact you can search over time all the files that have been updates. Plus, the extra bonus of backing up to external drives. You can search plus its fast. Nice one. It surely needs more awareness in the net is the suggestion I could give it. I would like to try win this one. And it works in Win 7 ...great!

I have just downloaded it and will be evaluating it over the week. It appears to be an essential software for eveyone.

I like about this program because it stores a historical record of the different changes made to a file in that file’s lifespan. In other word it keeps track of all my changes: I can just go back several hours, days or even weeks and months in time. The backups are quick and take place in the background, but I could easily check what was backed up from the reports. The Dashboard is very organized.
Final word: 4.9/5

Oops backup seems superior to other equivalent products I tried like GenieTimeline because :
- it doesn't put my system on its knees when performing the first full backup
- it keeps a usable copy of the saved files in the backup dir (that can be copied without the app itself)
- it can perform a backup on an external HDD as soon as it is plugged
- it is easy to use
It would be nice, in a future version, to have "instant backup" after any modification on a given type of files (*.doc, *.xls, etc.), and not only a the selected schedule.
