AOMEI Backupper Pro: Suggestions and issues
First of all, Aomei Backupper is a great tool, I like it. After years of trouble with another tool, I'm happy to have changed.
Here are some suggestions and issues I gathered in the last weeks:
1) [Suggestion] Improved space management.
Space management could be improved. What I really miss is the option to manually delete specific backup versions.
For example, suppose I have the following backup versions: Full10-Inc11-Inc12-Inc13/Full20-Inc21-Inc22 etc.
I'd appreciate if I could delete
a) a full set (like Full10-Inc11-Inc12-Inc13)
b) a single specific version (like Inc12)
Sure, the tool must be smart enough to do it right. If I delete a full backup, subsequent incremental or differential backups most likely also have to be deleted.
2) [Bug] Remaining backup time clipped / [Suggestion] Resizable GUI
Aomei Backupper has a small application window (only around 750x530 pixels) and it's not resizable. It's dimension is too small, therefore it clips sometimes important information. For example, if application language is set to German, during a backup one cannot see the estimated remaining of the backup (see screenshot)
3) [Bug] Notification e-mails are incorrectly encoded.
Notification e-mails are incorrectly encoded, see attached screenshot.
4) [Suggestion] Only one backup settings dialog
The settings for a specific backup are scattered over two dialogs; one called 'Edit Backup' and the other one called 'Schedule Task'. Why not just have one dialog where all the settings can be done?
5) [Suggestion] Allow creating new directories on a NAS.
When selecting the backup destination path on a NAS, please implement the possibility to create a new directory (no need to change to Windows Explorer). Why is this important? - As a security measure, Aomei Backupper is the only program allowed to write to a specific network share, e.g. \\NAS\backup. Because of ransomeware and other malware, I don't want to allow Windows Explorer to write to this share.
