Automatically save easily accessible backup copies of your Word, PowerPoint and Excel files with Got-Ur-Back

We all have some sort of back up system in place, but often these systems are not handy for instant access to the prior version of a file you just accidentally messed up.

File recovery ends up being a formal process of requesting the backed up file through IT, and usually involves more delay than you’ve got time for.

Got-Ur-Back runs locally on your computer to automatically save up to 5 levels of backups of your Word, PowerPoint and Excel files.

With Got-Ur-Back, each time you click Save:

  • A copy of you file as it was just before you clicked the Save button is created; and

  • The backup file is stored for you in the same location you are already saving to, so that you can easily access your backup files if you need them.

Free! Use Got-Ur-Back for Free

Currently, you can download and use this tool for free. We encourage you to do so right now. You never know when you are going to need to go back to a prior version of a file after inadvertently deleting something.
