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.

"Killed my O.S."

August 29, 2015  |  By lorenestes

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 3.1

Pros

Great GUI, easy to use, intuitive.

Cons

Well, it destroyed my O.S. when I tried to restore one of my pcs from backup. Would boot, couldn't repair it.

Summary

So does looking good and being easy to use go beyond uselessness into malevolence? I think so, you decide for yourself...

"Poor contrast of UX colors & fonts, no skins or themes."

August 24, 2015  |  By TheChairman33

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 3.1

Pros

Many nice backup & imaging features. Logical operation. VSS, and other useful items.

Cons

The choice of colors, fonts, and menu foreground/background contrast is horrible! Very difficult to look at this app for any length of time, causes visual fatigue. It's really a shame they couldn't offer a few different themes/skins... poor design decision.

Summary

A potentially great application, ruined by poor visual contrast of critical UX aspects...

"AOMEI Backupper has exceeded my expectations effect!"

August 17, 2015  |  By laknder456

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 3.1

Pros

This tool is very simple to use, I like it! I just wanted to write to you to say that I find your software easy to read and locate relevant info. Very cool!

Cons

The new features of AOMEI Backupper 3.1 improve the program further. Your application seems to work very well, and I have not had any issues.

Summary

I often use your software backup my files, I think it is particularly good, thank you very much. AOMEI Backupper is wonderful!

"Newest version is flawed..."

July 23, 2015  |  By stevecramer2

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 3.0

Pros

Free is nice but working is better

Cons

This version has been disabled (5.6.0). The 'System Clone' needs to be unlock. To do this you're supposed to go to social media and post an advertisement. I did it 3 times but the system remained locked. Nothing I could do helped unlock the software.

Summary

Contacted AOMEI Backupper support and they suggest to go sign-up for a multi cloud outfit. I did and nothing I did helped. I email a second time and they repeated the same message as before. I used their 'Disk Clone' and it failed miserably. It spent 11 hours cloning my drive to another drive of the same make, model and size and it simply did nothing....zero was cloned. In fact the drive was left in a non-formatted condition and 99% was unusable. Drive was partitioned and working fine before AOMEI Backupper got a hold of it.

"didn't work"

July 06, 2015  |  By rubrtoe1

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 2.8

Pros

I use the 5.3 version of Macrium REFLECT for cloning my c drive only this is the only one that worked for me. EaseUS doesn't work, AOMEI doesn't work, Acronis , all versions, stopped working, and Minitool Drive Copy worked about 4 times and quit working . I clone my drive about once a week or so and Macrium Reflefct 5.3 has continued to work like 6 times in a row, flawlessly. I was skeptical about it's ability to clone while in Windows, but it works. Note i do not do "updates" when something works because my experience is that in this day and age an "update" doesn't mean better and if it isn't broke, don't fix it.

Cons

"I love it!"

June 23, 2015  |  By DennisPrimm

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 2.8

Pros

I've been using Macrium Reflect Free for years, but when this product came out I had to download it. The best part of this software is the ability to recover to dissimilar hardware. In other words if you backed up (or imaged) your system from a 1TB HDD and you decided to buy a 500MB SSD to replace it with, then you could restore your system to the 500MB SSD. As far as I know, Macrium Reflect only offers this in their paid version.

Cons

I haven't really timed it, but it seems like Macrium is faster in making a back up image.

Summary

All in all, I love this software.

"Just Discovered this and Its Fantastic"

May 25, 2015  |  By whichnameisnotinuse

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 2.8

Pros

Worked perfectly to image the Cdrive and transfer to a new drive and keep to restore my OS partition.. byebye Acronis with its buggy TrueImageMonitor and prompts before shutdown and $50 per year to upgrade. It actually works quicker too.

Cons

However with the (image) mode it is best to do 2 things that are done automatically as part of trueimage. 1. delete your partions on advance into unallocated space. 2. it will restore the image the size of the image leaving the rest as an unallocated space. Use the Aomei Partition Assistant to create a new partion or merge with the unallocated. After this you will be set to go.

Summary

Very smooth GUI and operation. Love it.

"Good product with one weakness and one bug"

February 24, 2015  |  By Subsonic2008

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 2.2

Pros

Easy to use, incremental backups possible, nice set of features

Cons

Does not suppress standby mode in Windows 7, not even when you've chosen "Shut down after completion", which makes no sense at all. Have to manually switch off standby mode every time I backup my partitions. Also, you cannot tell the program to do several backups, so it's not possible to backup the system drive and another HDD after one another during the night.

Summary

On the whole a great program in need of some work on the details

"Hangs on start"

December 28, 2014  |  By FoosMonster

 |  Version: AOMEI Backupper Standard 2.1.0

Pros

Never got to try it.

Cons

Makes Windows 8.1 hang on start-up.

Summary

First, I use AOMEI Partition Assistant regularly without any issues at all, good software, But...the backupper causes the start-up screen to hang for between 45 seconds and 2 minutes. I tried installing it twice in the default folder and once directly on C drive but it causes the start-up screen to hang for a long time. After uninstalling everything is OK so the uninstall is fine without any lingering issues.
Other AOMEI software seems fine but NOT this. Please fix!

Updated on Dec 28, 2014

BTW - My system:
Windows 8.1 Pro
ASUS Mobo
AMD 4.0ghz 8 core Water cooled *(Not Overclocked, not needed)
16gb RAM
250gb SSD
8tb of storage
