To prevent system failure or data loss, backup is important and necessary. AOMEI free backup software provides basic and advanced features to ensure the safety of your system and data.

System Backup:

One-click system drive backup of all contents, including Windows operating system, installed applications and custom settings without interrupting your work.

Files/Folders Backup:

Securely back up individual files and folders, such as email, photos, videos, documents, games and programs. Also support backing up files from one network/NAS to another.

Disk Backup:

Backup your hard disk drives, including basic disk, dynamic disk, MBR disk, GPT disk, external disk, USB flash drive and other storage devices that can be recognized by Windows.

Partition Backup:

If you just want to backup one or more specified partitions or dynamic volumes, not entire disk. This free backup software allows you to back up partitions or dynamic volumes to a compressed image file.

When disaster happens (e.g. system crash, virus infection, accidental error), you can restore everything back to its original state or retrieve lost/deleted data.

System Restore:

Easily and quickly restore system partition and ensure system bootable after restoration.

Files Restore:

Rapidly recover files and folders that are lost, deleted or corrupted, or restore to an earlier time from backup images.

Disk/Partition Restore:

Completely recover the entire hard disk drive, partition or dynamic disk volume to the point you ever backup.

Selectively restore individual files and/or folders from a backup image file without recovering the entire backup.

AOMEI Backupper Standard supports partition and disk cloning. It enables you to migrate system drive, upgrade hard disk, or replace old small hard drive with new large one.

Clone Disk:

Copy a hard drive to another without creating an image file. The free program allows resizing partitions during the cloning process. Besides, it supports to copy hard disk drive (HDD) to solid state drive (SSD).

Clone Partition:

Create an exact duplication of your partition or dynamic disk volume, and exactly transfer it to another partition or hard drive.

Backup Types:

Incremental & Differential Backups:

Based on a full backup, the software enables you to save time and disk space by only backing up changed or new data. Besides, you are able to add comments for incremental and differential backups.

Schedule (Automatic) Backup:

Set up a schedule to automatically backup your system and data, especially for users who want to create backups at a lesser frequency or have multiple backup schedules (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly).

Backup Settings:

Encrypt and Compress:

Set a password for each backup to protect it from unauthorized access. Specify an industry leading compression algorithm to compress backup images for taking up less disk space.

Comment and Edit:

Add comments for backup tasks so that they can be easily identified. Let you know what a backup is for or what it contains. Change the task name and the saved directory of backup images at anytime.

Notifications and VSS:

Send backup completion status to your email by using AOMEI SMTP server. Microsoft Volume Shadow (VSS) allows you to back up files that are in use, especially for open and locked files backup.

Split and Delete:

When backup images being created, they can be split into multiple smaller ones or proper sizes to fit storage media. Delete a backup task or together with its backup image files.

Built-in Utilities:

Bootable Rescue Media Creator:

Make a Linux or Windows PE bootable media (CD/DVD disc or USB drive) for data backup and disaster recovery in case of Windows cannot boot. It is also available for backing up to shared folder and restore from network under bootable environment. Besides, you can manually add additional drivers when create Windows PE bootable media.

Explore and Check:

Mount a backup image as a virtual partition so that you can browse its contents in Windows Explorer. Check backup images integrity to ensure they can be restored successfully.
