CTX Backup Pro

Watch this quick demo, to see how it works.

Stay Safe With CTX Backup Pro

Protect your Excel work! Don't let these problems happen to you:

  • After hours of work on a complex workbook, Excel suddenly crashes, and you lose everything that you've done. Even if you have the AutoSave feature turned on, it might not be able to restore everything.
  • While working on a key file, you delete a worksheet that doesn't seem important. Hours later, you discover that you really did need that sheet, but Excel won't let you undo that mistake.

Save Time With CTX Backup Pro

CTX Backup Pro add-in helps you avoid those problems. Just click the Backup Pro button every few minutes, while working on your files.

Also, before you make a major change to an Excel file, click the Backup Pro button to create a new copy of your active workbook. If something goes wrong, you can revert to that backup file.

Backup Pro Benefits

  • Make a quick backup, without disrupting your work.
  • The active workbook is not affected -- a new workbook is created and saved.
  • Save backups in the current folder, a designated folder, or choose a folder on the fly.
