Editors' Review

+

When you add a new hard drive or SSD to your system, you must format and partition it before you can use it. The best tool for the job is a full-featured disk partition manager, which can not only format and partition drives but repartition them, too, or change the partition type when your needs change; for instance, if you should move your C drive to an SSD, you can repartition the old drive for media storage. EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition is just such a tool. Unlike some so-called free disk partition managers, EaseUS Partition Master is a full-featured disk utility that is powerful enough to actually be useful.

We liked EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition the last time we looked at it, but it's easier to use than ever. The start screen includes an optional User's Guide, which we opened. Its headings describe what Partition Master can do: Extend System Partition, Merge Partitions, Convert Dynamic Disk to Basic Disk, Convert Primary to Logical Partition, and Copy Disk. Each operation is explained in both video and step-by-step tutorials. Next we clicked Go to Main Screen, which opened a clean, attractive interface sporting a classic disk manager layout, including table and graph data views, and with a welcome absence of oversize graphics. In addition to the main functions, Partition Master can also change labels, defragment disk and partitions, check your partitions, and create bootable CDs. A toolbar icon labeled Backup Tool doesn't access a feature but instead opens a link to download EaseUS Todo, a free backup tool we've used and recommend. You can also set a password to protect your disks, if necessary (or merely prudent).

EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition lived up to our expectations. We recommend starting with the Wizard menu, which provides easy-to-understand wizards for the three of the trickiest yet commonest tasks: Cloning a disk, copying a partition, and recovering a lost or damaged partition. And remember to back up any data you want to keep before you tinker with a partition! We like EaseUS Partition Master enough to make it our No. 1 partitioning tool.

"Hijacks Web Browsers"

December 07, 2013  |  By Takaitra

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 9.2.2

Pros

It was able to wipe and format my external hard drive.

Cons

The installer hides the options to not install web browser add-ons within "Advanced Options". Despite me unchecking all of the add-ons in the installer, it changed my default homepage on IE, Firefox AND Chrome. It also installed browser extensions in Chrome and IE without my permission.

Summary

This software is malware. It changed my default homepage and installed extensions without my permission on three different web browsers.

"Warning! Don't trust CNET installer"

December 06, 2013  |  By dthurston1

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 9.2.2

Pros

Seems to function as advertised

Cons

I let windows 8 convert a drive to Dynamic and hoped this could get it back to normal. It couldn't, but I don't know anything that can. Spent a lot of time getting rid of toolbars and getting my browser settings back to normal. It's been many years since I've made this mistake and had no idea this is what CNET is stooping to these days.

Summary

CNET installer installed so many toolbars and other junk that I don't trust it. I thought the high rating from CNET indicated it was safe. I've lost all respect for this site. I'll do my research elsewhere from now on. It's so annoying to have to clean up after a mistake like this. Hijacking my computer is UNACCEPTABLE CNET!!! Will avoid your site like the plague in the future!

Updated on Dec 6, 2013

Don't believe this. I unticked additional items. I think the problem is the CNET installer, so this application may be slightly more honest (but they still hope you're not paying attention).

"excellent tool"

December 05, 2013  |  By Lawance212

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 9.2.2

Pros

As a computer engineer for over 20 years, we struggled for over eight hours to extend a boot partition with trial and error with over 8 other third party programs as Microsoft doesn't support this as an option. Then we can across your product which enabled us to easily extend our boot partition with unallocated space with ease!

Cons

no cons for this tool

Summary

IF EVER YOU PEOPLE NEED A REFERENCE, COUNT ME IN!!!!!!

THANKS SO VERY MUCH!!!!!

"It Works But It Affected My HDD Driver"

December 05, 2013  |  By RickDaton

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 9.2.2

Pros

It's free.
Nice interface. Very easy to use.
After making your selections, the system restarts and Partition Master goes to work.
The entire process only took about 15 minutes to complete.

Note: As of writing this, the malware that other users have mentioned is optional. You can tell the installer to not install the malware. Just pay attention during the installation process.

Cons

Partition Master did something that affected my HDD driver.
Amongst my listed installed devices, prior to using Partition Master, a name & model number used to be displayed for my HDD, but now all that is displayed is a generic name: "Disk drive".
I also now receive the following error message every time Windows starts up:
"Windows could not load the installer for Volume. Contact your hardware vendor for assistance."

I'm using Windows XP Professional SP3 and Partition Master 9.2.2

Summary

This is potentially very good free software but the way it affected my HDD driver is worrisome and unacceptable.
I'll try downloading this software again in the future to see if the bug has been fixed.

Updated on Dec 6, 2013

UPDATE:
After an OS reinstall, I tried using Partition Master again and it did not affect my HDD driver this time. What caused it to affect the driver the first time is unknown.

"Makes a scary task safe and workable"

November 30, 2013  |  By ivorybow

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 9.2.2

Pros

Easy to understand instructions, great visual tutorials at their site, and fast, doesn't require a reboot to take effect. And for home use, it's FREE!

Cons

None for me

Summary

Easeus Partition manager is a very easy to use software that did a very scary task...resizing my C: drive, quickly and safely. I really needed to get this done and I was worried about damaging my OS, but the tutorial online and the very easy to understand interface let me do the job in about 7 minutes, with no problems at all. Thanks for a great piece of software - easy to use, quick, reliable, and didn't require me to reboot for the changes to take effect.

"EaseUS saved me from a system disc reformat job"

November 29, 2013  |  By cwayneu

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 9.2.2

Pros

Easy to install
Friendly interface
Will resize and move partitions, and remain bootable
It is free for home use

Cons

None that I could see

Summary

I bought an off lease desktop that had the system reserve drive "D" sized too small. The system restore partition is suppose to be at least 100 meg for Windows 7, but was only set at 24 meg. I kept getting popup errors from Wndows 7 about every 10 minutes. So I needed to shrink the C partition by 100M, slide it to the end to open a gap so that I could expand D by 100M. I tried several packages, that either did nothing or warned me that this could make the disc unbootable. EaseUS did it perfectly.
