There are so many backup and rescue tools available in the market. A few of them provides a free version or trial version with a limited number of features. Maybe most of you have tried so many applications but that didn’t stand out as per your expectation. Some of them does have a very quirky and not so user-friendly interface or menu. But personally, I prefer the AOMEI Backupper Standard due to easy to understand and advanced features.


1. Though the AOMEI Backupper tool is pretty advanced, I mostly like the simple and easy to use interface. As a normal user, I don’t have to set anything extra from the settings or menu.

2. The system image file creation and the scheduled backup option with email notification feels good than other tools.

Not So Good:

1. The backup process don’t have pause/resume feature, which is painful instead of direct cancel the backup.

2. During backup process, I was unable to move on other options. That should be fixed by the AOMEI.

In addition, you can also merge incremental backup files to run a full backup by using batch scripts. This feature is available in the AMOEI Backupper Professional version.
