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.

    "False claims, poor support"

    May 9, 2012  |   By sborsher

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    None for my purposes.

    Cons

    Didn't work as advertized. Specifically, the free edition was claimed to convert from Dynamic to Basic, but there was no selection to allow that. When I emailed them I could not get an answer to exactly what version I need to buy to be able to do that. I ended up buying Dynamic Disk Conversion instead, which worked but had its own set of problems.

    Summary

    I had set my disks do Dynamic so I could use W7s built in RAID1, as I thought I was having hardware RAID problems. When I finally figured out what the supposed H/W problem was, I needed to find a reversion solution. As presented, EaseUS looked like the solution but was not for me.

    "Solved c: drive problem. Easy & straight forward."

    May 2, 2012  |   By larryscofield

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    It works. Fairly quickly. I about half an hour or less total run time, this program adjusted my d: partition, reducing it by 30GB, then added those 30 GB to my overloaded c: partition which is by boot & system partition.

    The interface is easy to use, once I understood what it all signified. [I have never messed with drive partitions before, so I was very careful.]

    It took longer to carefully study the directions to be sure I would not destroy my computer by messing up the boot drive. Then, much longer to run CHDSK and back everything up.

    Cons

    Must read the directions carefully. RTFM! :-)

    The directions and help files were clear enough, but took some effort to understand. The were obviously written by someone who thinks in another language and has not quite mastered English. But they did work OK.

    Summary

    Worked very well to enlarge overfull boot drive partition!

    RTFM!

    Back up everything first!

    This program made it easy to make the actual changes to my partitions! Running CHDSK and the backups and making sure I understood what I was doing took much longer.

    "This saved my butt!!!"

    April 23, 2012  |   By zhomama77

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    Very easy to understand the layout. I didn't even need to look anything up on the website.

    Cons

    I've only used the resizing and reformatting, so none yet.

    Summary

    I used the resizing to add a boot OS partition to a HD that was already full of stuff. My OS drive died. I'm very glad for this, plus it's free. I will keep this in my bag of tricks. Just awesome.
