AOMEI Backupper
« on: August 05, 2015, 05:15:07 PM »
I'm going to give AOMEI Backupper a shot at being my next go-to backup utility. I read a review of a bunch, and it seemed to be the best.

http://www.backup-utility.com

First job is to do a system clone onto an SSD to speed up my new machine before upgrading to Windows 10.

I'll post back on how it does.

FWIW - While system cloning is locked, posting to social media unlocks it. Like this post. :) They ask that you post this:

AOMEI Backupper, a FREE and easy-to-use backup software, supports system backup, file backup, disk partition backup, scheduled backup, etc. Download at: http://www.backup-utility.com

But from the text on the unlock popup, it seems like just the product name is required. We'll see. ;)

First attempt to do a system clone failed. Trying once more...

Ended up using this:

http://www.partition...rtition-manager.html

It worked.

I didn't even try the other one as it didn't get hidden system partitions. This other one (MiniTool Partition Wizard) got the hidden partitions, except for 1, which was a diagnostics partition.

Anyways, the system is now off a horribly slow 7200 rpm 2 TB HHD and onto a beautiful Samsung EVO 840 1 TB SSD. :D
