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.
