Download free backup restore software ? AOMEI Backupper Freeware.
You gave that out before and I installed. I'm about to make a PC change I think I'll test drive it.

The problem for some is that if you have multiple PCs the costs start to really add up. If they offered say a good 3 PC deal then that may be attractive (do they ???)
I must admit the free version is excellent value for money.

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,
