AOMEI Backupper 3.5 is the latest version of the popular free and commercial backup program for Windows. We have reviewed version 2.8 and 3.0 of the backup program previously, and found it to be an excellent free backup solution for Windows users.
Backupper 3.5 extends the program functionality-wise without taking away any of the existing functionality in the process.
You can download the latest version of the program from the official website. When you start it, you will notice that the interface has not changed at all.
You find options to run backup and restore jobs on the left, as well as tools to clone drives or use various utilities. The tools allow you to explore previous backups, create bootable media or verify the data integrity of backup images among other things.
AOMEI Backupper 3.5 supports network mapped drives as destinations for backups in the release. This enables you to store backups on network drives, something that was not supported previously.
The backup process itself remains the same for the most part, and you simply select a network destination when asked to pick the destination for the backup image. You may also select multiple files on network drives as the source for backups starting with this release.
But there is more in the new release. You will stumble upon new options while you are using the program. For instance, when you open the schedule screen, you may notice the new event triggers option for backup jobs.
Basically, instead of selecting a specific time for backup jobs, you may now set them to run during logon or logoff, on system start, or on system shutdown instead. You may also configure backups to run once everyday using the new event-triggered options, and backup jobs may run regardless of whether a user is logged on or not.
The majority of changes are available in all versions of Backupper 3.5 including the free version. You can check out the changelog for an overview and a list of fixes
Backupper 3.5 improves the backup program for Windows further. It supports all operations that you'd expect from an application of its kind including file backup, hard drive backups and the cloning of drives.
All of these features are available for free and paying users, and client versions of Windows.
