AOMEI Backupper: freeware backup and restore data (v1.6)
People in this Information Age prefer to stock personal files on their own computers. But computer hard drive is never a 100% safe place due to system failure and malware attack. Thus it’s rather important and advisable to back up the system/personal files before some unfavorable events occur. Here today we would like to introduce you a free Windows backup tool – AOMEI Backupper Version 1.6.
First of all, about the platforms, AOMEI Backupper supports Windows 7/8/XP/Vista and Windows Server 2003/2008/2012 (32-bit and 64-bit). No matter you are an individual user or business user of Windows OS, AOMEI Backupper is always available for you.
AOMEI Backupper includes three main functions: Backup, Restore and Clone.
For the backup features, this freeware allows us to backup the system, partitions or even a whole disk. Advanced options such as encryption, enable VSS, and select compression level can all be set up before the backup process begins. As for the destination path to store the backup image, AOMEI Backupper supports almost all the storage devices such local hard drive, NAS devices, external USB devices or CD/DVD/Blu-ray.
In version 1.6, we can set up a backup schedule for AOMEI Backupper to perform the backup task periodically. Besides, AOMEI Backupper starts to support UEFI boot, GPT disk and dynamic volumes with the upgrade of version 1.6.
About the restore features, we can find the existing backup image files in the menu box at the right-hand side. Just by choosing the image file and clicking on Restore button, we can restore the backup with ease. An advanced function is that we can restore specific files and folders from the backup image without recovering the entire partition or disk.
We can use the Clone function to copy a partition or an entire disk to another hard drive. This is very useful if you purchase a new hard drive. But please make sure that there’s no important data left on the destination disk because AOMEI Backupper will wipe away all the data on it.
Does not support file level backup
As a freeware, AOMEI Backupper Version 1.6 is absolutely powerful. It covers almost all the needs of Windows users in data backup. It’s easy to use and reliable in operation. It’s still very competitive even comparing with some paid backup utilities. We recommend AOMEI Backupper to all Windows users.
