Mounting with Aomei backupper

A lot of you are using this, and here is how you mount and manage your existing backup images.

1. To Manage

They are usually listed under the Home tab. The dropdowns provide the functions

If an image is not listed ( if you have just restored, or repartitioned, then it may not be), you just browse to it and then it will added.


2. To Mount

Select Utilities>Explore image.

You can select any of those listed, or click the "path" button and browse to the image you want to mount.

When you have selected the image, click Next and it suggests a drive letter - or you can pick your own.

It mounts very quickly, and you can see it in windows explorer, etc

3.To Unmount

Select Utilities>Explore Image.

Tick the mounted image you want to unmount or "Detach" and click detach. That is virtually instant.

Thanks SIW2 I use the program on two computers and so far it works fast and perfect.

I use the Partition Assistant also because you recommended them both.

I'm having a little question with the Partition Assistant.
Unable to do a surface test on the drive I have installed the backup. I'm thinking that is normal.

You're welcome. Glad it is useful.

Not sure about the surface test. Are you able to run it on your other partitions?

I will get back I'm still tinkering. It's probably just me working with a new program.

I did that a couple of times too. Advantage of AOMEI is that you really do not need any tutorial. The UI is self explanatory.

The more tinkering with AOMEI the better I like it.

Thanks SIW2, nice write up and info.

This finally prompted me to give Aomei backupper a test drive.
I'm really impressed with it, nice UI and easy to use.
I'm helping someone setup a new Win 8 Laptop and installed Acronis 2013 WD free.
I think some people would do Backup Images more if the software is easy to use...
I like this a lot better than the Acronis 2013...
I've been using Acronis (paid) for years and it's always been reliable for me, but the new version is not as user friendly imho.

One thing I noticed, it includes the hibernate file (hiberfil.sys) in the backup image and I didn't see a way to exclude it.
The pagefile isn't put in the backup image, so that's nice - saves some space.

David, get rid of the hiberfile before the backup. The command is powercfg -h off and when you want to set it back on it is powercfg -h on

Cool, that workaround will work for me.
I didn't even think of it, so simple

However for non-tech people that don't regularly do backups, I'm not sure I'd suggest this approach.
Trying to get someone to understand and use backups is a challenge for me, so the simpler the better.
That's what I really like about Aomei, it's so easy and user friendly, maybe more folks will do backups (before a catastrophe).
Anyway, for those folks a few gig extra in a backup image is better than no backup at all.

I think those people should stay away from computers. They are no appliances although the manufacturers somestimes want you to believe that. Poeple who don't backup are like those who never check the tire pressure on their cars. And then they end up like this.
