About this mod

Auto save backup tool for the souls genre and other games, with customizable keyboard/controller hotkeys for quick backup/restore and a profile manager. Choose between intervall auto backup every x min or instant instant backup after a game auto save.

Permissions and credits
EZ Auto Backup is a save file backup managing tool and was originally made for Elden Ring with autohotkey.

It can create backups of the save file each time the game saves or with an intervall, which is very usefull for games with only 1 auto save file. Like in a souls game after you died, just return to the titlescreen and restore one of the last save backup, or you can manually create backups before a boss fight or your favorite cutscenes to restore them any time. 

If you have any requests, suggestions, found some bugs or need any help, feel free to join the Discord.
You can also support me through Patreon, if you like my work.

Please download the newest version from the NexusMods Modding Tools section.

  • Always return to the title screen first before you restore a backup!
  • Quick backup will always overwrite the "Quickbackup" file in the backup folder, to create seperate backups use a custom hotkey for manual backup instead.
  • This tool can only backup the last auto save in game and not creating individual save states, but in a souls game it's kinda possible, when you quit the game, then after reloading it creates a new autosave, from which you could manual backup, it's like having a custom "save state".
  • For optimal use place ERAB on a second monitor to have an overview of the auto backups.
  • You can use your own notification sounds by replacing the existing ones in the ERAB folder.
  • Screenshots may be inaccurate, but it should help to manage your the backup files.
  • When you see a status overlay in the middle of the screen then press ctrl+alt+s for repositioning. To disable it go to "Settings > EZAB Settings > Misc > Use EZAB status overlay"


  • Unpack EZAB
  • Start ERAB.exe, when launched for the first time, EZAB will ask you to create a new profile.
  • Select your game from the game list.
  • Click "Create Profile" and choose the required save file and backup folders.
  • Enter a name for your profile to finish the profile creation process.
  • Go to settings if you want to change the auto backup method or change some options.
  • Start the game of your profile in order to use any auto or just use manual backup functions through hotkeys.
