SOS Click stands for Save On Steroids and its purpose is to allow the user to save work created using Microsoft Office on up to 8 different locations using one click, saving the hassle of saving to each location separately.

The add-in gives you the peace of mind you need when it comes to saving your work. Let’s say you want to save an important contract, financial report or presentation and you want to make sure nothing wrong gets in the way. Just click on the life belt icon and your work will be saved at the locations you specify. No need to worry anymore if anything happens to your local hard drive, your flash drive or perhaps your internet connection is down or your work becomes encrypted due to a ransomware attack. And these things tend to happen at the least favorable moment just when you need your material like before a meeting.

This option allows you to share your mail and Google Drive settings including the app-specific password (if applicable) across Word, Excel and PowerPoint instead of setting them up separately. It doesn’t share the places where you choose to save your files.

Sure, just make sure to download the 32 bit version.
