Full, incremental, differential, and automatic backups
AOMEI Backupper Standard allows you to make an automatic, full, incremental, differential backup, which would simplify your backup tasks.
Clone HDD/SSD to another HDD/SSD
If you want to upgrade your current HDD/SSD data disk to a new or larger HDD/SSD, this free backup software can help you clone the entire HDD/SSD data disk to anther, so that you can use the new hard drive, and keep all data on it.
Sync files to another disk, network share, NAS, cloud
It allows you to synchronize files/folders to other locations, such as an external hard drive, NAS, or removable USB flash drive, etc. File Sync copies the individual files/folders similar to a Window's "copy" command and therefore does not create an image file.
