    Clonezilla vs AOMEI Backupper opinions
    Most users think Clonezilla is a great alternative to AOMEI Backupper.

    I've used clonezilla for years. It's never failed to backup and restore partitions or the whole disk. The cons: 1. For a person not familiar with the command line this program will be difficult to use because it's interface is text based, not GUI. 2. It doesn't backup individual files. It creates a cloned image of the partition or disk; restoration of individual files is not possible.
