    Sure if it meets your needs. Same is true of any software.

    However new versions equal more options usually.

    I particularly like the new differential backups and the ability to make it as a boot option (so unless hdd fails or OS is badly corrupted, you do not even need a boot stick).

    Frankly, I'm surprised you're still not on DOS 5 with 8" floppies.

    I guess I asked too late - we will see. This is not sour grapes but I like Aomei and it is faster.
    Thank you for the information.

    I have tested the latest version of Aoemi on my pc, and it was slower. Speed is not really the issue but overall reliability. Todo Easeus is quite slow compared with MRF but very reliable.

    However, any sensible person makes an image backup with two different programs (occasionally), in case one inexplicably craps out.

    I have just found MRF to be the most reliable over a wide range of devices, so it is my personal default, but I also backup now and then with Easeus Todo as well which has also been reliable.

    At the end of the day, it really does not matter too much, as the main packages are 'converging' in features and reliability. IMO, the most important thing is to use the one you like and USE IT REGULARLY.
