Aomei Backupper Pro 2.2 is free for a couple of days at Windows Deal.
AOMEI Backupper Professional 2.2 (100% Discount)

You do have to download, install, and activate it before the end of the free offer, or the key is no good.
You MIGHT be able to just activate your trial version with the free key, without reinstalling...i don't know for sure...

You do have to enter an email address to get the freebie.
I get a daily email sales flyer from Windows Deal because I have downloaded some freebies.
That doesn't bother me, it's how i learned about this free offer.
I've never had any problems with downloads from Windows Deal.

I downloaded it and the installer scans clean at VirusTotal.

Whats the difference between the standard (free version) and the professional? I have backed up and restored my entire c drive twice with no issues whatsoever with the free version. Also cloned one of my SSD's to HD. Works great.

Just a comment

Hi Steath2920:

(First thanks to DavidE for helping him with the link)

In my totally non-professional computer helper ability...... I was only concerned as in researching some of the products mentioned in my other thread about I need a backup system to replace my lost Norton Ghost, I encountered some negatives... Mostly I avoided these as they mentioned various losses due to either, when a paid or free version was upgraded and the images were lost or corrupted, causing one to have to erase everything and make a brand new basic save of everything again for the first time. As I cannot foresee the future, I would have no idea of the condition or health of computer and its HDD at the time I'm forced to upgrade (either to paid, or free new model, or even from a free version to its paid version), and with all the complaints I have listed here... I did not want a known issue of having difficulty in losing any saved images or accessing any saved images in the future if that should occur (i.e. assuming it would be fixed by then is riding false hope).

Thanks for allowing me to express my opinion on how to choose safely a backup.

Good Luck Stealth2920.

Great! Now I have one copy I'm going for it

Hi DavidE!

Great information in Post #11! (I still can't Rep you for this one, until I rep others!---2 short--I won't forget!!)
I'll try it right now that I have 2 copies made One each with AOMEI and Macrium.
Did a Restore point before proceeding any further just in case.

Thanks for checking the VirusTotal and Email links out for me first.... I'll trust you have done everything right and just download it now to get the key...

I'll let you know shortly if it works or not (if not I'll go through steps to remove and replace my AOMEI Trial version before attempting to do that so I don't get like Norton, pieces left over ruining the computer's registry and VSS etc)

Thanks again!

oops

Hi DavidE:

Guess the code I was given (copied and pasted it so typed correctly) failed ..
Message in AOMEI "Register" box said "Invalid Code"

Its ok, I know what comes next...

Just haven't done it myself for over 2-3 years since a new version of IE came out whenever it did for Windows 7.....

QUESTIONS! (Sorry)

Do I ERASE the Existing AOMEI program FIRST?

OR

Do I DOWNLOAD (I did it already) and INSTALL the AOMEI (2) copy of program 2.2? (Seems to be same size of the one I have as trial version.

What happens to the backup?

Do I erase the backup first? or leave it and see if the new one detects it???
After loading the new one, do I then Erase the Existing AOMEI before running the new one so no shortcut conflicts?

OR Do I wait until I run it and made a new copy using the program???

And....

Hate to ask this since you're been so helpful...

What if......

What If this fails..... Do I get a second chance on the "Trial Version " in my computer?

Or did the AOMEI company record the serial number (hidden on INTEL CHIP? I read years ago) (or inside the Windows program) to make certain I cannot keep downloading the "Trial Version" over and over and never need to buy or register a copy of AOMEI...

So thanks for the answers so far!

I'll not do anything (so I won't do anything wrong) until I hear back from you!

Have a great day! (I see you're offline, its ok whenever you get back its fine!)

I'm appreciative of everyone's and your efforts.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
 
 

I updated AOMEI pro 2.0 to AOMEI pro 2.2.

I downloaded AOMEI from AOMEI Backupper Professional 2.2 (100% Discount)

When installing 2.2 it asked to uninstall 2.0 so I let it, then continued installing 2.2.

The first time opening 2.2 it asked for a key so I entered the new one from WindowsDeal.com.

The newer version also saw all the images made by 2.0.

I installed the Pro 2.2 from Windows Deal and the free key works for me.
Do as C-11 suggested and run the installer downloaded from Windows Deal.

Totally agree. I did the same thing and my previous backups work fine. I have been running the Malwarebytes free version on my pc with no issues. I upgraded to the premium and something didn't agree with the windows boot process and the network process lagged horribly. I uninstalled Malwarebytes premium but something was still wrong. The long version of this story is I used AOMEI to restore my previous backup and it worked perfect and my pc is back to normal again.

Three great postings with answers Thanks!

Hi Everyone!

Thanks to C-11, Stealth2920 , and of course DavidE for your postings!
I appreciate the detail and confidence you have in the process and explaining everything so clearly for me.
I will follow what C-11 said to do and delete my Trial version and use the Windows Deal version with its code instead..

For anyone else reading along:

And I better make certain I contain in a "Do not use" folder, or erase the AOMEI site downloads of the Paid Professional 2.2 version.... so if I find myself with a future problem I don't try installing the Trial one again as I won't have a Key for that one!

Thanks again!
