AOMEI Backupper Pro Review – Specifics

If you take a look online, you will find dozens of backup solutions. Even though all of those will get the job done, they are not the same. You want a tool that is easy to use, that performs without hogging your computer, and you also don't want to spend too much money. So, let’s see how AOMEI Backupper Pro ranks and what this software has to offer.

Before we jump to the full review, you need to know that we have tested the AOMEI Backupper Professional, version 4.0.6. The tests were performed on a two-year-old Windows 10 notebook, powered by Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and an SSD drive. This is well beyond the application's recommended specs, making us sure that older computers will run it equally fine.

Platform Compatibility

If you have a Windows PC, you will be able to run AOMEI Backupper Pro without any issues. However, this means that MacOS users will want to look elsewhere. Our Score: 7.5/10.

These days, creating backups has never been easier. There are all kinds of different solutions and all of those are trying to bring something new. One of the latest trends is cloud backups. These are great because they run in the background, doing all the work by themselves. However, these will make your computer’s fan to run at all times. That’s why a simple backup solution is always better.

AOMEI Backupper Pro is the perfectly simple (in terms of ease of use) solution that runs on demand. You can download and install it without having it take too much space. Once installed, it takes around 200 MB, which is great for this type of software. In addition, it doesn’t require you to have a powerful PC. We’re sure that not many of you are still using Windows XP. Even if you are, AOMEI Backupper Pro will run just fine.

Installation Process

All you have to do is to click on the prominent ‘Install Now’ button and wait a few seconds.

Backups can usually take a lot of time, especially if you want to include your operating system or your hard drive. However, this application allows you to fine-tune your user experience by visiting the Settings. This is where you can decide on the type of file compression, which is an important factor when it comes to speed.

In our tests, AOMEI Backupper Pro was able to backup the entire system in around 25 minutes, which is a good result. However, this process is affected by a range of different factors. For example, how powerful is your computer in terms of processing power. All in all, you should know that this tool will help you get the job done quality, without affecting the rest of your system.
