SOS Online Backup Editor's Review

With the amount of data handled by average computers users growing with time, the number of backup application is also on the rise. Nowadays, many PC users are opting for Cloud based backup solutions. The security, flexibility of access and ease of usage makes cloud based data backup services so popular with users. In fact, both home and advanced users prefer such solutions in recent times over local backup apps. However, you need to click the most apt cloud storage service for your needs. There are barebones service providers and those that come with bells and whistles. SOS Online Backup is a solution that comes with really practical feature for most users. The latest version features enhanced apps for iPhone and Android, Facebook backup and streamlined PC setup process.

SOS Online Backup comes in various price plans with varying storage capacity to address user needs.  The software features a quick and intuitive installation wizard. Security conscious users will like the UltraSave option but it can be difficult if you forget passwords. You can direct the wizard to look for backup worthy files by category. The wizard is self-explanatory and you also get installation guide.

The app makes taking backups of your computer data a cakewalk. You can choose to get data backed up even when you are not logged in. Scheduling of backup is an option if you get emails upon successful backup completion. The app interface is aesthetic and uncluttered. The tabs- Backup and Restore simplify operations.

As is the case with most online backup services, this software lets you make local backups and online backups. The app encrypts, compresses, and then sends up data to servers in batches worth 5MB. The Backup progress window can be invoked when the process is on. SOS Online Backup supports network drives too. You may also right click on folder and files in Windows explorer to include them in backups. The app’s Classic View offers extensive control over backup configuration.

SOS's unique Live Protect feature is ideal for backing up critical data. The app backs up changes done to a file already stored in the cloud server and so need for enormous data transfers is not there. It offers fast data upload speeds and leaves many rivals lagging behind in that segment. SOS's software interface offers detailed and customized data restoration features. It saves multiple versions of same file and lets you pick a restore destination. Where it shines over rivals is it doesn't delete a file from online backup even if user deletes it at local machine. The restoration process is smooth and there is a progress indicator as well. SOS's online restore site enables you to play back media content stored in its servers.

SOS now comes with intuitive apps for both Android and iOS. With these apps, you can now share backed up files via email links apart from downloading them. SOS Online Backup also allows users to back up their Face book accounts. However, you have to enable the app within Facebook first. Considering continuous cases of compromised logins in Facebook every day, this feature can be handy for you. The app still needs some improvements. As of now, they are not offering other social media profile backups.

Positive Points:
- Intuitive wizard driven installation, restore.
- Speedy data uploading.
- Facebook backup is handy.
- Enhanced mobile OS apps.

Negative Points:
- Facebook backup app needs some polishing.

Conclusion:
SOS Online Backup offers a hassle free way to backup your computer’s data and also adds many useful features. The capable mobile apps and innovative Social backup feature wins the app some brownie points. The SOS web interface and client app are easy to use and the company offers plenty of guides. It also lets you playback backed up media content in web interface. Unless you are looking for free cloud storage, there is no reason you should not use this versatile cloud backup service.
