Editors' review

AOMEI Backupper offers backup and restoration services with its easy-to-use application. The streamlined design and fast response of this program are excellent, but the lack of features offered in the free version of Backupper may be disappointing.

Pros

Quick performance: We tested the speed and precision of AOMEI Backupper and noted that backups were very fast; our 18GB partition drive was backed up in under 30 minutes. The restoration process took only a few seconds, and all files were preserved accurately.

Top-notch support: Very few free programs offer as much support as AOMEI Backupper. The video tutorials, FAQs, and how-to guides presented more information than we'd expected, and the activity of the support forums was phenomenal, with many postings occurring as we tested this program.

Straightforward design: Although the program window is smaller than we'd like, the interface is smooth and easy to use. A small number of tabs eases using this program, and each feature takes you through a step-by-step process to ensure success.

Cons

Limited features: AOMEI Backupper performs very well, but we were disappointed that you have to pay for additional features like the ability to combine multiple backups into one. The advertised benefits of the paid version seem limited, so we would take caution before purchasing the additional tools.

Bottom Line

AOMEI Backupper is a responsive and excellent program that offers much more than the standard free application. We recognize the value of this software, but we recommend that AOMEI Backupper add the ability to schedule backups. All the same, this is a high performance application, and we suggest that you download AOMEI Backupper.

    "Restore does not preserve file time stamps."

    September 14, 2014   |   By jackg_tor

    Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 2.0.2

    Pros

    Nice, well-designed interface and good functionality for a free program.

    Cons

    As stated in the forum (http://www.aomeitech.com/forum/discussion/comment/3029#Comment_3029) and I verified myself, restore operations set the time stamps of all files to the current time instead of to their original times. I want my backup programs to preserve every possible attribute (e.g. time stamps, permissions) so, to me, this is a fatal flaw.

    "Thoroughly impressed!"

    September 07, 2014   |   By LGM

    Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 2.0.2

    Pros

    Has all basic and important options and features, isn't a resource hog, has a nicely designed interface, easy to use, runs without mistakes, and it's free!

    Cons

    None that I can think of ... seriously.

    Summary

    For a drive imaging and backup application, this one is excellent. It has all the basic options and features I need, runs quickly on my older underpowered laptop, has a nice interface (unlike a lot of utilities and free software), and ran without any issues in my tests.

    I was moving from XP to Windows 7 on my older laptop, had to backup all the data, and so looked into current options. EaseUS choked on my laptop as it is a resource hog. It simply wouldn't run. I tried to use the latest Acronis True Image but it refused to install because it detected remnants of an older version which I had uninstalled awhile back. This is a common problem with Acronis products. I tried to use their recommended cleaning utility to wipe off the older remnants but it made my machine unbootable (had to boot using the last known working configuration option which thankfully worked).

    I am so glad I found this AOMEI solution and couldn't believe it was free and this good. It even lets you create a bootable rescue CD. This way you can restore backups to your hard drive without having to boot into Windows. It comes in handy in an emergency.

    So thanks a lot to the developer for not only making something that works so well, but allowing home users to have it at no cost. Anyone looking for a solid backup solution needs to at least give this a try. It's wonderful.
