AOMEI Backupper Standard For Win7

CNET Editors' review

AOMEI Backupper for Win7 has what we like in a full backup solution, starting with the ability to completely restore your system from a backup (with the help of a bootable system restore disc also created by Backupper). Backupper can back up partitions, volumes, and entire discs. It creates full or incremental backups, either automatically or manually, with the usual compression and encryption options found in premium backup tools -- except it's not a premium backup tool. The one thing Backupper lacks, we can do without: a price tag. AOMEI Backupper for Win7 is freeware. And it's not just for Windows 7 (both 32-bit and 64-bit) but also Windows 8 and Server 2008.

We're not the first to remark on the "family resemblance" of certain types of software, and AOMEI Backupper for Win7's blue-toned user interface practically describes, itself. That's bad? No way: The easier, the better goes for most software, but backup tools, especially. We clicked "Add New Backup," and Backupper's wizard walked us though the steps for creating a Disk Backup, Partition Backup, or System Backup: Which one you should choose depends on your system configuration. But you could do worse than click System Backup, a one-click process (with the usual options) that backs up your C drive. Be sure to choose a suitable backup location, such as a removable hard drive. You can configure Backupper to update backups as files change, though we prefer the option to create a new backup on schedule. Though it took longer and used more space, we took a full, uncompressed backup created with full system resources since there's less to go wrong all around. Backupper also packs some extras in its Utilities menu, such as the Check Image tool for verifying backup integrity and the Create Bootable Media tool, which we recommend visiting. The Help file includes many tutorials and other resources to help you with all that.

Like many, we prefer premium backup solutions to the built-in Windows Backup. If cost has kept you from upgrading (or, gasp, led you to not back up your files at all) then download and run AOMEI Backupper for Win7 today.

    "Best backup utility ever!! Can't believe it's free!!"

    December 1, 2013  |   By MazdaShinji

    Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard For Win7 1.6

    Pros

    extremely easy to use, multifunctional

    Cons

    None or I just couldn't find one at this moment

    Summary

    Just can't believe this awesome software is free. It beats the Windows built-in backup utility for real good. You can backup the data from an entire disk to a specific partition. And the processing speed of backup is much faster than I expected. I've used other backup software before but none of them is nearly as good as this free AOMEI Backupper.

    "excellent windows backup utility"

    November 5, 2013  |   By CathySkunk

    Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard For Win7 1.6

    Pros

    great user experience, powerful functions, schedule backup, disk clone, all FREE!

    Cons

    cannot backup file alone

    Summary

    I just did a right choice of trusting this freeware! I was searching for a backup utility last month because my PC suddenly went slow and noisy.My roommate recommend AOMEI Backupper to me and I was not so sure about this freeware at that time because I had never heard it before. Anyway, I just backed up my system with AOMEI Backupper. No surprise that my system has crashed eventually. Then I accessed into WinPE trying to restore my system. And it worked!!

    I like its UI because it is so well-designed. I found this morning that this freeware even allows you to clone the disk!! Who could ever believe this is a freeware?

    Good work AOMEI!!

    "Comprehensive backup software"

    October 7, 2013  |   By Paul-SAT

    Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard For Win7 1.6

    Pros

    such a great convenience, easy to operate and protect from data loss in back up

    Cons

    only supports Windows

    Summary

    AOMEI Backupper is not the only software that I have used for file backup, but I was amazed by its comprehensive features including system backup, partition backup and disk backup etc. the software it's convenient to operate and makes up some of the shortages of Windows built-in backup utility. After using the software, I found this software is reliable in backup to protect from data loss.

    This one is really convenient. It seems like that I can do any operations only with a few clicks with the mouse and once i do a full backup, i don't bother to do another full backup anymore, because the differential backup would back up the changed and new added files since my last backup.

    Thanks very much for AOMEI Tech.

    "Caution Is The Key Word"

    August 21, 2013  |   By wwgorman

    Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard For Win7 1.5

    Pros

    None that I could identify.

    Cons

    This did not work for me trying to clone a hard drive with the operating system. It left me with 2 hard drives disabled. I had to reformat the target hard drive to restore it to its "native" state. For the drive I was trying to clone I had to reformat it, re-install the operating system (Win 7 Pro 64 bit), then restore my other files with Norton Ghost.

    Summary

    Did not work for me in the "Clone Drive" mode.
