Excellent Free Imaging Software

This is an excellent product. Being that it is free, it's even better!

Pros

This software is super reliable and can recover a hard disk that has crashed. This is my go to product for protecting my Windows boxes.

Cons

The free product has limitations, but it's totally okay for simple imaging. For my needs, since I also use a cloud backup solution, these limitations work for me.

Aomei backUPPER

It's simple and ease to use and it has the features needed for a backup for windows

Pros

The free version includes a lot of features ideal for most cummon users. For businesses or for an user that needs more options or features, it’s competitively priced. It is designed well and is very easy to use, particularly for novice users.

Cons

I see the need for some type of encryption options. Overall minor points

Reasons for Switching to Aomei Backupper

Minitool is just overpowered for the needs that I have

BSoDupper!

To their SUPPORT: 1> I purchased AOMEI last week but thus far it has not been a pleasant experience. Is it possible to revoke my license and refund my money? ==> reinstalled special version they compiled and made available on Google Drive. 2> I'm no longer getting the BSOD but the backups are failing with 4140 error codes both scheduled and manual ==> removed all directories and let AOMIE Backuper create re-create them. 3>Hello, I did as you requested. I also reduced the frequency of the scheduled backup to once per week on Sundays. This morning, my system was in BSoD but this time it was in an endless recovery -> failed reboot. I had to do a fresh install of Windows install AOMEI and restore from a good backup from Thursday. Thankfully it restored successfully. I’m happy about that. However, ultimately I cannot ignore that AOMEI was the reason for the BSoD and the need to restore from a backup. I’m officially throwing in the towel on AOMEI backuper. I have not had a good experience with your software and would appreciate a refund of my $49.95. It doesn’t need to happen immediately, but I did see that you offered some resolution for refunds and I would like to pursue that path. I have already uninstalled AOMEI backuper, you may of course deactivate my activate key on my refund request. 4>I've already been through that. I'm no longer interested in your product. I have moved on and purchased Acronis True Image.

Pros

I successfully recovered from an existing image created by AOMEI

Cons

Plagued with issues: - scheduler doesn't work - as a service causes BSoD (Blue Screen of Death) - I really don't like the naming convention of the backups. "System Backup.xxx" "System Backup (1).xxx" .. etc - ultimately the software killed my system but did manage to recover from an existing backup.

Reasons for Choosing Aomei Backupper

It offered a free (less configurable) version.

It worked for some time

Until recently I was very happy. I had been running their latest addition for about a month. I installed System Mechanic Ultimate Defense about 10 days ago and now having nothing but issues with Aomei Backupper Pro. Recently it has been responsible for freezing programs, slowing down programs and even clipping video and audio on Zoom. All this seems to be due to the fact that it doesn't agree with System Mechanic as the timing of the introduction of System Mechanic seems to match the issues I have received. I have tried removing and reinstalling. However, it has a mind of its own and won't allow me to shut it down or remove it as it continues to run in the background.

Pros

Easy to set up and use. It has a number of features allowing various types of backups. Files can be manually backed up or synced, on a schedule or not.

Cons

It's a relatively simple format so there was nothing really to dislike. If I had to complain it would not allow canceling easily and would stay working when I wanted to shut it down for some reason.

Reasons for Switching to Aomei Backupper

Ease Todo was giving me some issues with the way they offer their subscriptions. You really never know the pricing as it depends on what page you go to signup and if you wait for a bit a new offer pops up. I tried this yesterday and eventually had three different prices shown over a short time. I believe I had an issue that stopped me from upgrading again after 4 years of use. I tried again after removing Aomei Backuuper Pro and went thru the same issues.

Happy with the backup process

Been a good experience.

Pros

The backup runs on its own daily and have never had an issue.

Cons

The backup set is not readable in file explorer, which is annoying.
