AOMEI Backupper Standard Review & Free Download

One of the most horrible things to happen to any computer user would be losing all data. Imagine for a second that all your work and precious files which you had accumulated over the years, disappears in the blink of an eye. Most people do not bother to back up their data regularly, although Windows includes fine Backup Tools. The Windows operating system includes built-in tools that let you backup and make copies of your files and create a system image. Windows 8 also includes a System Image Backup Tool, with which you can now backup or clone an image of your disk. But if you are looking for a free third-party free backup software, check out AOMEI Backupper.

AOMEI Backupper Standard review

AOMEI Backupper offers three main functions: Backup, Restore and Clone. It is easy to find them on the left side of the main interface.  The home button is located at the top left side, thereby letting users see their current backups immediately, once the software launches. As a result, you don’t need to waste time looking for existing backups or even make the same backup again. Let us see these 3 modules in brief.

1. Backup

Click the Backup tab and you’ll see the Disk Backup, Partition backup and System backup functions in the sub-category. You can set the compression level before taking a backup. You can also make some comments for the images, so as to distinguish them easily from each other. For security purpose, if you wish, you can also password-protect the backups. This free backup software also supports incremental & differential backups.

2. Restore

Clicking the Restore tab will show you all the created backup images in the backup list on the right side. The images are sorted date and time-wise. The restore process is quick and safe, and the system will be perfectly bootable after the recovery. In order to make the restore operation more convenient and efficient, AOMEI Backupper can also restore the individual file or folder.

3. Clone

Clone - AOMEI Backupper

For those who purchase a new hard drive and don’t want to lose the data present in old one, AOMEI provides them with clone option. A partition or a whole disk can be cloned to another partition or disk. A really advanced function in this part is that it allows users to resize partitions during cloning. With this function, not only can the data can be transferred, but the partition size on new hard drive can also be allocated.

Apart from the main functions mentioned above, AOMEI Backupper also includes other functions such as “Image file checker and explorer”, which can check the contents of the backup by mounting the image to a visual partition. It now also lets you add real-time file sync and supports choosing a cloud drive desktop app as the target path of file backup and file sync.

    AOMEI Backupper V 2.2 is an excellent choice and i was surprised just how easy, fast and self explanatory this software is. It took just 10 to 13 minutes to go through the whole process with no issues what so ever. You can backup, clone and restore with ease and all 3 processes tabs are located on the left side of the interface. You have System backup and Partition backups and you can set compression level you desire and all with ease. You also have incremental & differential options which is a plus and to think that all is actually FREE. Sure, you have excellent free backup tools like Macrium Reflect, EASEUS Todo Backup, Cobian Backup and many more but considering the ease and fast process of AOMEI it should be considered as a viable option. This will be my default software for OS backups. Enjoy…
