AOMEI products have been mentioned around TPFC forums (e.g., viewtopic.php?p=51541#p51541 and viewtopic.php?p=73309#p73309), but don't seem to have any topic of their own. Well, here it is.

Apparently, the mentioned Partition Assistant is deprecated. The highlight of the new Backupper Standard is the fact that it can backup a live system without rebooting.

    AOMEI Backupper Standard is an all-in-one backup, sync, recovery and clone software which is free, the easiest and faster for users, even you aren't an IT expert. As long as AOMEI Backupper Standard can meet your requirements, you're welcome to free use it on computers in the home and business environments, with no intention to gain commercial advantage or monetary compensation.

More info, including comparison matrix, at http://www.aomeitech.com/ab/standard.html. Some portability info can be found at http://www.aomeitech.com/forum/discussion/933/backupper-portable-and-64bit-pe-files/. A fairly recent third party review is at http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/aomei-backupper.htm.

AOMEI Backupper Standard latest release (currently v4.0.4) can be downloaded from http://www.backup-utility.com/download-for-win7.html (Please note that Windows XP will need a bigger download, found at http://www.backup-utility.com/download.html).

Outstanding. Can you do a system clone to USB? E.g. if hard drive fails you can boot from you backup?

    Haven't tested it, but I seriously doubt it. This is a backupper, cloning is very much another story, I'm afraid. With some nudging, Clonezilla (http://clonezilla.org/) might be able to do just what you want...:?

True. I really just want a Windows version of SuperDuper but that may not be possible. That program depends on the MacOS and the hardware being very okay with booting from an external device.
