It supports system/files/folders/disk/partition backup & restore, files/folders sync and disk/partition clone as well as provides other advanced features, such as backup using command line prompt or batch scripts; automatically delete older backup images to manage backup disk space; merge multiple incremental backups into a full backup; real-time file sync; schedule backup, incremental/differential backup; backup to NAS and network; partition alignment to optimize SSD during the restoring or cloning operation; dynamic disk volumes backup; GPT disk backup; create Windows PE & Linux bootable media; manually add additional drivers when create Windows PE Bootable CD; sending e-mail notifications; backing up or restoring files from a network to another; editing task name and the directory of backup images; backup logs management; exporting or importing all backup tasks, start up multiple client machines within LAN through the PXE network booting by using AOMEI Windows PE and Linux micro-system or your own personalized bootable image file on a master machine for system maintenance.
Besides, the unique function of this server backup software is universal restore, which enables you to recover or migrate a system to physical or virtual machines with dissimilar/different hardware. Another highlight is VSS, a technology from Microsoft that enables system and data backup processes won't be interrupted by running applications. So it is very efficient because backup can still be available when you're working.
