Retore help

Hello, i installed your software to back up my data on a window 11 before I downgrade it into a window 7.

I ran your software and made a back up folder in an external hard drive.

The problem is i forgot to use the function of “ Creating a bootable USB”.

Now, when trying to restore i am not able to do it.
Please help. I still have the back up files Aomie created on my hard disk. I just do not know how i can restore it.

Please help, the data is super important.

    Please go to another working PC, and create the USB there.
    What is your goal with your Windows 7 PC?
    What is your goal with your backup? Different people use backups in different ways.
    After using Backupper (BU) to create a PC backup image file .ADI, you could use the free version of BU to restore the entire PC. However, if you want to get 1 file only out of your .ADI backup image, you must purchase the paid version. To get 50% off price, go to another working PC, install BU, uninstall BU, and a 50% sale button will appear.
    Backupper WinPE USB:
    Add custom drivers, such as NVMe, if necessary. Does not work with some monitors.

    Partition Assistant WinPE USB:
    Add custom drivers, such as NVMe, if necessary.

    Aomei WinPE 2.0 Builder USB:
    Partition Assistant, Backupper, Recuva, 7zip, OSF Mount, CPU-Z, Bootice, diskmgmt.msc. Does not support any additional drivers, such as some internal NVMe disks.

  • @Sgnga00, You can try to install and use AOMEI Backupper on another working computer, then create WinPE bootable media.
