EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition

CNET 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.

    "Decent. missing features has too many unneeded features"

    April 15, 2014  |   By pentest

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 10.0

    Pros

    Does what it says is does

    Cons

    Isn't aware of ext4.

    Tried to install lots of crapware during the install.

    After formatting a drive it has the gall to want to post that fact to Facebook or G+.

    Summary

    A disk formatter should not be "social networking" aware.

    Installed, used it to reformat a previously ext4 drive to NTFS since Windows is too stupid to see other FS, and uninstalled this POS.

    "Functionality at a price"

    April 4, 2014  |   By jimmyjoe

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.3

    Pros

    It partitions as expected.

    Cons

    Even when you tell it not to, it installs crapware. Worse yet, it install a service a search "service" that starts whenever your computer starts. It's insidious that they do this, sad that Cnet doesn't catch it in the review and a shame this has such high marks. I would avoid this software at all costs.

    Summary

    Get something else. I suggest paying the $49 for a real piece of software from a reputable source.

    "Nice free partition software"

    March 20, 2014  |   By Bigfct

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.3

    Pros

    Nice free version program Partition Master for home user like me. I had to extend my system partition C:, but I was a bit afraid of doing such a thing.

    But together with simple introduction about how to manage it I dared to do it. For safety I first made a backup of C: and a bad sector was found and solved with chkdsk /r!

    Cons

    I think it should have multiple language versions.

    Summary

    good software

    "Destroyed the config sys file on my daughter's computer"

    March 19, 2014  |  

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.3

    Pros

    It's a very easy to use program, and makes resizing a partition a snap. It's also very good at deleting or damaging the System Configuration file, rendering the operating system unbootable--or was that the doing of one of the malware programs that is bundled with it that sneaked by me during installation? You know; the crap that C|Net or someone integrates so well into the front end of the installation process. You've gotta give them credit for stealth, I guess; but is that a "pro" or a "con"?

    Cons

    Thanks to EaseUS Partition Master Free Home Edition, I am now about midway through the process of formatting my daughter's hard drive and reinstalling the operating system (Windows XP), a mountain of updates, IE8, Windows Media Player 11, MS Office, and all the audio, and video editing and production software and their updates. Thank goodness I was able to hook up her hard drive to my machine and recover her project and personal files; and thank goodness, too, that she had all the installation discs for the software she had installed. For the record, the recovery feature on the Win XP installation disk could not repair the damage that EaseUS Partition Master did. What should have been a simple, 10-20 minute task has eaten up my entire day! Backing up a system is no good if you can't get the original to boot at all--not even in one of the safe modes.

    Summary

    In summary, what should have been a few minute, routine task turned into a 10-hour-long ordeal--time unnecessarily wasted that could have been spent doing something productive--thanks to EaseUS and whoever built the installation package and crammed it full of unrelated crapware; as if we don't already have enough aggravation having to C|Net's crapware-laden downloader when the browser's downloader works just fine.

    "Easy download and install from CNET, excellent program!"

    February 2, 2014  |   By wwlaughlin1

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.3

    Pros

    Totally bug and adware/malware free! I always get my downloads from CNET! This ensures no extra software is installed, all you have to do is pay attention when installing to not install toolbars, search engines, and otherwise! The program does everything it is purported to do and then some! Works flawlessly as long as the user pays attention to what they are doing!

    Cons

    There are still little toolbars and homepage changers to watch out for and they can occasionally sneak past the most experienced installer!

    Summary

    Why pay for what you can get for free! That being said, get the professional edition for a few dollar more and it works even faster with a few additional features!
