What Our Happy Users Say

Carmine Di Giulio

I've always wanted a PC application that would allow me to quickly and easily perform an automatic daily backup; I've tried many over the years, but AOEMI Backupper has surpassed them all! Non-intrusive to the system, very simple to use, and with an infinite number of backup options, from a simple folder to a complete physical copy of the disk.

Ingrid

I used several backup programs, but my favorite is AOMEI Backupper (at least the software that I use for the longest time). I once cloned a hard drive to an SSD and still have it installed. It works great for creating weekly backups of my important files. Many other features are embedded and very suitable for common user like me.

Susan Eastwood

I've tried other backup and restore software, and AOMEI Backupper is the only one that always works. It uses "hot backup," which means it performs the backup while the operating system is running. There is no need to exit and then boot into the backup software, making it simple for the average user. Because this company has been around for a while, the software is mature, they have a comprehensive website with helpful tips, and their customer service is responsive.
