What I Did Not Like In AOMEI Backupper While My Test?
AOMEI Backupper Lacks FTP Backup
Before installing it, I was expecting FTP backup option, But AOMEI Backupper does not support backup to FTP.
Not Installed AOMEI Backupper, Can’t Restore Backed Up Data
AOMEI Backupper has an other shortcoming that I don’t like. Your data is backed up to an image file. And the problem is that You can’t restore backed up data without AOMEI Backupper. You’ll have to install it to restore data you backed up earlier. For an example, You back up data of your PC to an external hard drive and then you want to restore it on your friend’s PC, You can’t do so without it. You’ll have to install it on your friend’s PC.
Though, AOMEI Backupper has many shortcomings that should be addressed by developers at Aomeitech.com, But overall, I found AOMEI Backupper a great piece of software. It is easy to use, user friendly, fast and lightweight. It did not lag, hang and crash while my test.
