Backupper is a popular and extremely useful product for individuals and businesses in Chechnya, Hong Kong, Germany, and almost all over the world. It is a kind of emergency power of AOMEI technology company.
While anyone can use Backupper Standard, we have tested the free and paid versions of Aomei Backupper Professional. For the sake of authenticity and to allow for a fair review, we tested the free standard version first before testing the paid pro version so that we can give a fair boost and help users with research.
First of all, Backupper has some notable positives and negatives that we found to highlight:
Benefits: free updates for life; Low price for the professional version; Discounts for multiple licenses; 1 license for the professional version includes 2 independent PCs; The free version can be used on a limited basis for commercial purposes.
Negative: works only on Windows
Backupper Standard and Backupper Professional are almost the same programs. Almost. Both are feature rich, but in reality you probably won’t use the vast majority of features, even if you are a standby user. This includes the feature-rich free version, which has a surprisingly high number of backup options. If you are not a network professional and only use AOMEI Backupper for regular and personal data backup purposes, you will probably never use or even understand how to use this feature.
However, AOMEI has significantly expanded the range of paid versions compared to the freeware. The main difference in features between paid and free options is that AOMEI Backupper is a junk to hell commercial backup program.
AOMEI Backupper Professional is just that: a professional application for professionals and businesses. Organizations will greatly benefit from the ability, for example, to backup and restore to multiple devices on a network. You may need to do this if your business has been compromised by ransomware or you need an emergency backup on multiple computers during disaster recovery. Meanwhile, the free standard version still has some features that you will probably skip as a single user, but it does have all the major backup features that you are looking for.
As mentioned above, the main differences between Backupper Standard and the paid pro version have more to do with network-related backup tools than anything else. However, the biggest limitation for free users is memory management. Many features that are not available to free users make better use of storage space. Free users will find that their backup hard drives and cloud drives fill up fairly quickly, especially with regularly scheduled backups and full system backups.
If you have almost unlimited storage space for backups, or if you just need to back up a few key files, the free version is probably very useful. However, if you have limited space for your backups, AOMEI Backupper Professional is required.
Perhaps the biggest drawback of AOMEI Backupper is the lack of included online backup. Although AOMEI allows you to backup your hard drive or files to many different cloud backup options, the company does not offer its own cloud backup service. Business users must purchase cloud storage separately to use cloud backup effectively.
However, backing up to the cloud works the same as backing up to another source. When creating a backup, users just need to make sure that the cloud backup service is properly installed on their system with a desktop application and then select that backup service when choosing the backup location of security.
If you are looking for a simple backup program, AOMEI is not your choice. While AOMEI can be used for very simple data backups, the program’s functions are optimized for business. The lack of an included cloud backup option and the inability to limit the size of the backup with the free version can also be a roadblock for individual users.
However, if you have a business with a cloud storage option or have a large physical backup location, AOMEI Backupper is an undeniably powerful option. Although AOMEI is designed for more professional use by IT and network specialists, anyone who wants to skip the more specialized options can easily use it. The free tool itself is an interesting endeavor, while those who need space-saving customization options for their backup should consider AOMEI Professional.
