Open Aomei Backupper When Backup is Running

I am currently evaluating Aomei Backupper and considering whether to switch from Acronis.  I set-up a backup and started it to run...and then closed the program.  Later I wanted to open the program to see what the status of the backup was including how much longer to expect it to run, etc.  However, when I tried to open the program all I got was a message that a backup was currently running and there did not appear to be a method to open the program while a backup is running.  Is this the case...namely that once a backup starts you can not open the program until it completes?  If so, that would seem to be a problem since there may be a number of things I want to do in the program that I thus cannot do while a backup is running.  As I compare to Acronis, for example, if I am running a backup, I can still access the program and do many things in the program while a backup is running or just check and see how much longer the backup is expected to run...but is this option not available with Aomei Backupper?  Thanks, Ken


  • @Maineiac13, Please check if there is a tray icon of AOMEI Backupper on the bottom right corner of the taskbar. If yes, you can open application from the tray icon. We will optimzie the problem after.
  • There does not seem to be a tray icon of AOMEI Backupper in the taskbar..
  • @Maineiac13, Could you allow us to offer remote to check the problem?
  • I can confirm this issue first appeared for me in Aomei Backupper Standard Edition somewhere between versions 5.7 and 6.1. I can't recall which version specifically, but in v5.7 at least, this issue does not exist, and by v6.1 it does.
  • I just updated from 6.5.1 to 6.6.1; the issue is still present in the latest version.

    Also, side note; As far as I recall, I have never had Aomei Backupper show up as a tray icon either.
  • @ADreamEater, Could you allow us to offer a remote for checking the problem further?
