That's pretty puzzling about Aomei, expecially when you've uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Note: The reason I noted using something like Revo Installer is because it will find and remove registry entries and files left behind which a normal uninstall will not.

I'm running it on a Ryzen 7 5700G processor here without issue. I'll bet if you do a fresh install of Win11 and then add it again it will fix the issue.

The paid version has it and other great features. In Black Friday in November, it is usually 50% off.

there is very annoying problem. the app is not dpi aware. UI and font is too small
I agree with the tiny font (even on my 17" screen have to use magnifier app), What I do like is that TODO recovers to any drive including a VHDX that I just tried out and boots perfectly and that you get a detailed, step-by-step real time log (albeit cannot be saved) during backup and recovery of what volume has an issue and what is successful (you have to do a screen dump to save that log, Snipit will not work). The freeware also includes mounting images (AOMEI wants you to pay for that). Apparently AOMEI can also recover adi files to a VHDX disk but I have been unable to do that yet.

Just Macrium free version in restore options the restore to new hardware is disabled which is bad because owner PC components change over time.

I use Gs Richcopy 360 ,this dandy simple program is just fantastic for backing up folders/files to external devices /HHD/servers/clouds. I use it also to back certain files and folders. It is as simple or as powerful as you want to make it
and it is intuitive.
And it works fine with windows 11.
