Difference between AOMEI Backupper en Macrium Reflect Free

What's the difference between AOMEI Backupper and Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download ?
I use Macrium Reflect for a long time now, but I'm missing the incremental and differential backup features. Are they working great in AOMEI Backupper? Does it repair the bcd store (bootmenu) and drive lettering in registry on restore, so system boots fine after restore? Can aomei backupper backup and restore from network share?

What has macrium reflect free what aomei backupper hasn't (not interested in the schedule option)? Is aomei backupper stable reliable software?

I think the best person to answer those questions is SIW2. He recommends AOMEI and he's very familiar with Macrium, too. He posted this on a previous Macrium thread.

I don't know - I haven't got any network shares.

You would have to try it and see.

I wonder whether it can align SSDs during restore - like Macrium.

Good point, I have to test that with disk cloning, and partition restore. I can align easily anyway with Partition Wizard.

I expect Backupper optimises automatically.

The partition manager had that function before backupper came out - so I expect so.
