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.

"Warning: Borks Recovery Environment in W8"

July 16, 2015  |  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

 |  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.

"they falsely advertise that its a free software"

February 26, 2015  |  By SoftwareHungry

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.2

Pros

search and categorization is good

Cons

fake marketing

Summary

Just be upfront if the software has a price or not. When I try to recover the files after the software find it then it asks you to purchase the license for the recovery of files.
Also, I believe it corrupts the files once you scan and do not use easeUS

"Loads unwanted crapware, doesn't work"

January 20, 2015  |  By sermann

Pros

No idea - didn't work

Cons

Offers to install crapware, and installs it even if you refuse. Claimed that my main partition was empty.

Summary

Avoid.

"Works, but you pay to make it take affect"

November 27, 2014  |  By RicF964

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.2

Pros

I copied my boot drive over to a larger hard drive. It did the job correctly, though it did take almost a full day to move 250GB.

Cons

Customer service: Although they did respond, it took over 7 hours and the website says available 24/7; chat wasn't available.

You HAVE to remember to click on the apply button or it doesn't make the requested updates/changes.

Summary

Overall, it was good and did what I expected it to. Wish I came here first, I paid full price.

Updated on Dec 22, 2014

Need to update...

Windows doesn't allow 3TB hard drives without making some changes, like your drive has to change from MRB to GPT and you have to hope that your processor will accept the GPT as bootable. Mine didn't, so multiple emails and phone calls to EaseUS and I still couldn't get the 3TB drive to be bootable. You should know that they are based in China and there is a 13 hour difference between them and the East Coast of the US. If you send an email during the day, you won't hear back until the evening; possibly while you're asleep. I downloaded Team Meeting so they could jump on my computer and even they couldn't get my drive to boot up. In the end, I turned my drive into a spare and have my music and photos on it, then bought a 2TB so that it could be bootable.

The product works, it will transfer your data, wipe a drive, etc. The customer service is awful...and yes, you HAVE to buy it in order for it to fully function.

"Works on WindowsXP"

November 25, 2014  |  By LincNeb

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.2

Pros

Free.
Works well

Just the thing to have to resize your disk partitions so, you can put on Linux alongside your Windows. I have one rather unused netbook, well used but usually for a specific purpose on Sunday, so you can see it's nearly like new. I still wanted to access the Internet with little worries about viruses and such so I installed Linux along side it. Linux Light fro Mobile,
http://download.cnet.com/Linux-Lite/3000-18513_4-76111812.html
which is also on "Download" website, installed without a problem thanks to being able to resize my hard-drive with no problems.

Cons

Really no big complaints. I probably should read the manual or other material for it, because it didn't seem to be intuitive to how to just set the sizes of the partitions and I just held down the down keys on the touchpad to set the sizes. I wouldn't be surprised there wasn't something that I overlooked.

I was somewhat surprised that the computer had to reboot, and the program had to do some other actions before rebooting. I shouldn't have been surprised about that.

Summary

It did what it say it would do and at the right price, so I would recommend the program. While it asks for your name and email address you'll see at the bottom of the request that wasn't required, so that should add a star to anyone's review of the product.

 |  Version: EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition 10.1

Pros

Price. Ease of use.

Cons

Had no problems with the program after I read the instructions.

Summary

This program did what it claimed. I tried using it with intuition, but ended up having to read the Chinglish instructions.
