To enjoy VR games, people have to buy VR devices. Oculus Rift is a famous VR device since it has acquired by Facebook in 2014. There are many other VR headsets in the market, such as HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Microsoft HoloLens, Sumang Gear VR, Sony HMZ-T3W, Google Daydream View and so on. In this article, we focus on Oculus Rift.
Why Oculus Rift need assistant?
Oculus Rift provides a platform, it has many game and work apps. However, it is not perfect, as VR technology is not mature so far. Oculus Rift does not has a backup app for itself, you have to try third-party backup software to protect Oculus data. The default storing data location of Oculus Rift is in C drive, so it is easy to be full, and common users don’t know how to migrate data to other place, they only can delete old and unnecessary files.
Now Oculus Rift assistant can distinguish and select only Oculus data to backup. There are also Oculus Rift assistant can transfer Oculus data from original installation directory in partition C to other place without data loss. The assistants are called vrBackupper and Oculus Mover, both are released by AOMEI company.
How do vrBackupper and Oculus Mover work?
vrBackupper is released earlier than Oculus Mover, it is the first such software for Oculus Rift in the world. It is designed to backup & restore Oculus data and migrate Oculus installation. Migration helps you to allocate more free space in C drive. Move VR installation directory to another location on this computer can even be external hard disk. Backup&restore also supports dissimilar hardware because of AOMEI’s universal technical. If you plan to install Oculus Rift and games on a new computer, backup&restore saves time of re-downloading and re-installing. Moreover, you can select to backup only games and apps or backup the whole Oculus installation data.
However, vrBackupper as the first VR software product of AOMEI, has some limits, it only supports Windows 10 64 bit. Thus, AOMEI released Oculus Mover later. Although Oculus Mover 2.0 only has migration feature, it supports more operating systems: Windows 10/8.1/8/7 (32/64 bit). You can use vrBackupper and Oculus Rift together.
Both vrBackupper and Oculus Mover are freeware, they make up the disadvantages of Oculus Rift. Now with the help of them, we could enjoy Oculus Rift better.
