Editors' Review

EaseUS Disk Copy makes it utterly simple to create a bootable disk for your system on a CD or DVD, USB drive, or ISO image file, and use it to copy or clone disk partitions and recover data and partitions from backups, including sector-by-sector copying for total compatibility. With it, you can perform disk operations that usually require more than one drive (even more than one computer), such as recovering a backup of your main drive.

EaseUS Disk Copy is fully portable, so it runs as soon as you click its program file without having to be installed, even from a USB drive or similar device. The program's disk wizard is a simple dialog box with three choices for creating a bootable drive, with drop-down lists for multiple destinations: USB, CD/DVD, and Export ISO (you browse to select a destination for an ISO file for further use). We inserted a blank DVD-R into our disk tray, and EaseUS Disk Copy's built-in burning software recognized it. We selected CD/DVD and pressed Proceed. Immediately the software began analyzing our system and burning our bootable drive. The whole process was finished quickly. We removed the disk and labeled it, since a bootable disk you can't find or identify doesn't help much when your system is kaput. We reinserted the disk, rebooted out system, accessed the boot menu, and selected CD-ROM. As it should, our system booted to EaseUS Disk Copy's menu.

At this point we could choose to continue into Disk Copy, boot from the first hard drive, or select an additional partition to boot from (handy for multi-OS systems). We selected Disk Copy, and the program's disk copying and cloning wizard opened. This wizard walked us through each step of choosing a disk or partition as well as operations and options. The sector-by-sector option takes more time and uses more space, since it creates a one-for-one clone of your disk.

For a simple, free way to create bootable disks to use with backups and to copy your hard drives and partitions, it's hard to do better than EaseUS Disk Copy.

"EaseUS: The issue with our product"

December 30, 2013  |  By EaseUS_Technical_Support

 |  Version: EaseUS Disk Copy Home Edition 2.3.1

Pros

Dear Caviper69 and other Users,

We apologize for the inconvenience. The CNET installer will add some build-in tools such as Autobox, MyPCBackup and Mobogenie.

You can select "Decline" if you don't want to install these tools. Then you can download our product at the last step.

Cons

You can select "Decline" if you don't want to install the build-in tools recommended by CNET installer.

Summary

This is a useful tip for users that don't want recommended software.

"This is a virus. Don't download it!"

December 29, 2013  |  By Caviper69

 |  Version: EaseUS Disk Copy Home Edition 2.3.1

Pros

It has been a good refresher in virus removal.

Cons

It download viruses and browser hijacks.

Summary

As soon as I downloaded it and ran it I had problems. I removed the software and am still dealing with pop-ups and requests to download a new video viewer. It said it was creating a boot disk and all it created was an executable on the cd. Stay aways from this.

"Convoluted install, but eventually did the clone great."

October 16, 2013  |  By jennytalia

 |  Version: EaseUS Disk Copy Home Edition 2.3.1

Pros

It's free.
It clones your disk

Cons

Install process is convoluted and involves multiple downloads.

Summary

Firstly, BE CAREFUL OF THE CNET DOWNLOADER. It wants to install 2 products that are nothing to do with this before it even lets you download the installer. It's very 'offical' looking - BUT DECLINE THEM.

Once you download and run the installer. Running that eventually gets you to the picture at the bottom of the review - where it wants to create a boot disk. Since I wanted to clone, I had to click the bottom link, which THEN took me to Chengdu's website, where I could download and install the software.

Initially the software wasn't recognizing my new drive. So I had go to Windows Disk Manager to initialize the new disk. After that, the software worked great (although slower than I expected).

I'm very disappointed in CNET in adding this superfluous spam-ware.

"After re-install of windows will not activate"

March 27, 2013  |  By mikewiddy

 |  Version: EaseUS Disk Copy Home Edition 2.3.1

Pros

Clean user interface

Cons

After re-install of windows will not activate
The email support address doesn't work.
I mount a system backup from a different machine. It mounts ok, but cannot be accessed.
I get "F:\ is not accessible - media is write protected"
I had tested the mount on the first machine with no problem.
With incremental backup the result was success, but mounting the image, succeeds but cannot be accessed. So every day you need to try the mount, and delete the incremental backup, the run the backup again.
I haven't had any luck restoring Windows 8 from a backup.

Summary

Don't pay for this. Use the free version, and test recovery on a test machine.
