The Standard edition of AOMEI Backupper is a free application that will help you to back up, restore, clone, and sync your sensitive data in an intuitive and easy way. Incremental and differential backups are fully supported, as well as standard system, disk, file, folder, and partition backups, together with a set of interesting and practical tools, such as cloning, encryption, and compression utilities.

Wrapped up in an already familiar and highly intuitive interface, AOMEI Backupper Standard offers you a set of wizard-based backup, restore, and clone options that will allow you to keep your data safe and secure on different locations. It supports all types of internal and external disks (MBR, GPT, and dynamic disks included), as well as any USB storage device. All file systems are also well supported, including NTFS, FAT, EXT, etc. As said, most processes are carried out by wizards that will guide you through the few steps required. They are kept as simple as possible, thus making this app suitable for all users, regardless of how informed they are about backup-related issues.

You can back up specific files and/or folders, entire disks or selected partitions, or your Windows system. And then, whenever needed, you can restore any of these backups in an equally easy and stress-free fashion thanks to the program’s restore utilities. Backups can be scheduled, so that you can forget about backing up your data regularly and thus keep your backup files always up to date. Here is where incremental and differential backups come into play. You can schedule these, too. This will shorten backup processes significantly, which means that you can launch them more often, if so required.

Syncing files and folders is one of my favorite features. This interesting tool will let you select two folders – say, A and B – and tell the program to check that both folders contain the same files and that all files in both folders are exactly the same. Of course, this great utility can also be scheduled to perform its magic as often as you wish.

AOMEI Backupper Standard comes also with a toolbox full of other useful utilities. The cloning tools, for instance, will allow you to make exact 1-to-1 copies of any disk or partition, as well as of your Windows system (excellent when upgrading to a new computer or migrating your OS to a new hard drive, including SSD drives). You can also create bootable media for either a Windows PE system or a Linux system (using CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs or USB drives), explore and check the integrity of backup images, or use the PXE Boot Tool to allow your computer to boot from a server through a LAN. All of these tools, together with the program’s main functionality and its unbeatable price, make Backupper Standard an excellent choice to cover all your backup needs.
