It is very important to have at least one System Image backup for your Windows system. If something went wrong in the future, you can easily turn back to the current system state with the backup. There are many software that can do a full system image backup. Windows 7 and newer also has a built in feature to do this. But today, I am going to show you how to create a full system backup using AOMEI Backupper Professional.
AOMEI Backupper is a simple and powerful backup software for Windows. It comes with many features such as:
- Full system image backup – Backup Windows and create system partition
- Disk backup – Backup disk to image file
- Partition backup – Similar to disk backup but it backups partitions instead of the whole disk
- File Backup – Backup files and folders into image file
- File Sync – Backup folder by file sync, no image file and supports real time sync
The good thing about AOMEI Backupper Professional is the fact that we can schedule the full system backup. You don’t have to execute the job manually. This program will automatically performs system image backup in the background.
