Editors' Review

+

EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition has been a go-to recommendation for a powerful yet easy-to-use disk management utility that just happens to be free. A familiar layout with disk map plus a full User Manual and lots of Help resources make for a great start. Partition Master Free can format, copy, resize, move, and manage disk partitions as proficiently as its premium competitors. It supports removable drives and hardware RAID, too.

Pros

Powerful yet free: Partition Master Free can Resize, Move, Merge, Migrate, and Copy disks or partitions; convert to local, change label, defragment, check and explore partition; and much more. A premium upgrade adds free tech support and the ability to resize dynamic volumes, but the freeware more than meets most home users' needs.

Wizards: Migrating your OS to an ultra-fast SSD or a new HDD? Or maybe you want to clone or copy a partition? There's a Wizard for that (and more) on the toolbar. Partition Master Free is SSD-friendly, too.

Business License: Home business owners can obtain a Business License for Partition Master Free with a few clicks.

Cons

Toolbar "extras" and pop-up ads: The data recovery, backup, and bootable CD tools displayed on the toolbar and Advanced menu aren't available in Partition Master Free. True, occasional pop-up (or slide-in) ads for other EaseUS software can be annoying, but not as annoying as paying!

Bottom Line

In actual use, EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition proved equal or superior to other freeware disk management utilities and quite a few premium ones, too.

"Still an awesome product!"

April 28, 2016  |  By jandsm5321

2016-04-28 12:37:05  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.8

Pros

Works like windows disk management, but includes the features that Microsoft has taken out, like resizing and formatting FAT partitions.

Cons

None, I mean, it's free! It's awesome for the price!

Summary

Make sure you click "apply" to apply your changes, don't be like the one star guy that thinks the program doesn't work.

"Does not Work, Trail version a Con"

January 22, 2016  |  By southernrican2

2016-01-22 16:17:15  |  By southernrican2

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.8

Pros

None, useless

Cons

Rating is the same as it performed Zero(0). On main window it showed my 3 partitions, I clicked on the one I wanted to delete. A good software program would advised me that I'm about to delete an item, I click delete an waalaa, should be deleted. This on acts as if deletes partition, it goes away just to return a few seconds later. I checked computer manager and it was not deleted.

Summary

Don't waste your time, I'm of the impression that only the paid version may work. Customer Service not good, I went and looked at web sites FAQ, nothing mention about partitions that don't delete. Last Facebook update was months ago, yet they refer you there.

"Stay away unless you want to pay to test for them."

January 17, 2016

2016-01-17 13:47:22

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.8

Pros

They say all of the right things and have a great marketing and UI

Cons

Did not come close to completing the task of moving my C to a new larger C. Gave me a new larger A which won't boot.

Summary

Don't waste your time Like I did. I had to dump this and find something that actually does work after investing 15 hours building an array that would not work.

"Bundled with Malware"

January 09, 2016  |  By andrew48512451

2016-01-09 01:26:10  |  By andrew48512451

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.8

Pros

None.

Failed to function as claimed.

Cons

Added startup items that re-enable themselves even after uninstalling EaseUS and deleting leftover files.

Summary

If it worked as claimed a tool this powerful should only be used by IT professionals. You know who you are.

However, this program shouldn't be used by anyone. It is bundled with malware. I should have known when I launched the program and the window that opened had only one button labeled 'Launch EaseUS Now'.. I just launched the application, why do I have to launch it again? Could the launcher actually be an installer for something else? Sure is!

Never play with new programs before your second cup of coffee.. Anyway..

Now I've got a start up item named 'EaseUS EPM Tray' that re-enables itself.

I'm upset enough that I made a download.com account just to write this review.

I get to spend my day dissecting this garbage to find out what all it did.. Not how I wanted to spend my Saturday.

Also, I guess this is the point where I finally give up on download.com.. This place has been risky for years, but by using caution I've never had an issue until now. Additionally, to write this review I had to register an account, which forced me to sign up for the newsletter. It said I could opt out later, we'll see how that goes.

At any rate, this place is chock full of malware and poor ethics. Thanks for the hassle.

"Ended up with missing hal.dll"

October 04, 2015  |  By cdebel2005

2015-10-04 12:29:37  |  By cdebel2005

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.8

Pros

It resized the partitions

Cons

It destroyed it's content

Summary

If you want to end up with an error "missing hal.dll" file, then use this software.
Everything in their kb (id10037) doesn't solve the problem. Had to reinstall everything. Should have used those good old tools i was using 15 year ago since it was working perfectly on these Windows XP...

"Lots of attempts to install adware on the free version"

August 18, 2015  |  By Lyom

2015-08-18 11:02:25  |  By Lyom

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.5

Pros

It is free.
You can use it to resize your partition if you have no other option.

Cons

Be very very careful when you install this program - you have to dance through a jungle of options that literally try to trick you into installing adware.

Example:
- They want to also install your backup program. Uncheck the box to opt out.
- Next, they want to install one of those "optimize your registry" programs. You could uncheck the box to opt out and click next, but that's not what you have to do. Instead, this time you have to click "Decline" (in addition to unchecking the box). You only get one chance. Try clicking for example Decline and go back, this step is suddenly skipped, even if you left the checkbox checked. Uh Oh!
- Next, they offer you an express installation, or "custom". If you select custom, you see that another PC optimizer program is checked by default, you have to uncheck that.
- Next, they tell you to enter e-mail address and password. In small print they also tell you that you don't actually have to give them that.
Ads. Ads. Ads.

"Warning: Borks Recovery Environment in W8"

July 16, 2015  |  By si

2015-07-16 07:17:04  |  By si

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.5

Pros

This program is very good, except for the "warning" above.

Cons

If you have a Windows 8/8.1 system, DO NOT manage your partition with this program or you will lose the system "pointers" to your recovery environment. Search eightforums.com for a solution if you have done it already.

Summary

Really, they need to fix this major problem - it's been how many years?

"Gets the job done"

April 09, 2015  |  By TheSymposium

2015-04-09 23:08:35  |  By TheSymposium

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.2

Pros

Allows you to do just about anything you would ever need to do in terms of manipulating the partitions on your HDD, and in a fairly user-friendly way.

Cons

Installs additional programs -- which may or may not be spyware -- that you are not given the option of opting out of. This adds to program complexity and inflates load times for the program and otherwise makes it slower than it needs to be. Operations can be painfully slow.

Summary

When I began installing EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition, I noticed that it installed one or two other programs, the names of which lead me to believe that they might be spyware. There was no option for an "advanced" or "custom" installation, providing me with the ability to opt out of installing these additional programs.

Starting EaseUS brings up a menu that appears to offer the choice of launching a number of different programs; however, only the partition master is actually installed. Clicking on any of the other program names takes you to a web site to purchase said programs. This front-loader significantly increases the load time of the main program. Otherwise, modifying the partition tables on one's hard drive is fairly straight-forward, if a bit slow. Merging adjacent partitions is supported, but merging non-adjacent partitions is only supported via a roundabout method that requires you to back up data and essentially destroy the intervening partitions.

I wound up wiping my hard drive shortly after using the program, so I didn't keep it on long enough to investigate what the additional programs do that it installed. I don't think I'll be re-installing this any time soon.
