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.

    "Amazing partition tool, 2nd to none!"

    October 26, 2012  |   By belfastchild

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    This is the most amazing partition tool I've ever used. I've used several, though I'm not a PC guru by any stretch of the imagination. It's so easy and intuitive and the most wonderful thing about it {apart from the fact that it's free} is that you don't have to exit windows in order to re-size a partition or feel that you're doing irreparable damage to your hard drive. It brings hard drive re-sizing to the average user! Well done and thanks.

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Summary

    If you're hesitant about re-sizing a partition for any reason or creating two partitions on one hard drive, then this is the program for you.

    "Saved me after I killed my external HD"

    October 20, 2012  |   By elmrrr

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    Saved me after I killed my external HD
    ITS FREE BABY!!!

    Cons

    bit too complicated for simpletons like me, wish there was some explanations when dummy hovers above the icons with the mouse arrows...

    Summary

    I have killed my 1TB WD ext. HD with very strong magnet by accident. PC was just suggesting to format it. Downloaded two other programs before, one didn't work, the other wanted money... This one took like 24 hours, but in the end it made a copy of the killed hard drive on a new 2TB HD I bought. About 80% of data then I was able to recover, and copy on the old formatted 1TB HD. Then I was able to make out of the 2TB (which now was saying it's 1TB only) new 2TB again. All and all great success and lesson for life. Thank you guys whoever did this. Thank you so much!

    "finally!!!"

    October 20, 2012  |   By CerberaLM

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    it does what other partition-managing software doesn't or can't
    e.g. for years I've been using that supposed wizard but, for some reason, it just couldn't merge the partitions on this one drive (even after several attempts of deleting/formatting either partition). EaseUS merged the partitions in under a minute.

    Cons

    seems visually cluttered since its window isn't too large. but you'll find everything you can do with a drive is on that one interface, just like any other partition-managing software :)

    "Fantastic!!!"

    October 10, 2012  |   By davidstipek

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    I had tried to clear up the 50 partitions on each of the 3 dozen 250gb drives donated to School.... Within 1/2 hr they were all cleared, cleaned and formated! "Thank you! EaseUS!!" Job well done!

    Cons

    If I hve to post a Con.... It would be the time my ireless took to "DOWNLOAD" your program. As there was nothing I found while running it!!!

    Summary

    EaseUS, you have done a Good Job! Certainly for us, as we were quoted some Huge Fee!! To cleanup these drives. Our Hilltribe English School here in Chiang Mai, Thailand works around a small amount of Donations, 80% of these go to feed these kids and families who can't. 20% is for medical, to get Teams to Visit Villages. As 60% of the Medicine is Donated... Thank you Chiang Mai Medical Center (University Hospital)

    It is when you need to get job done and not be ripped off! Because of EaseUS's thinking on mking this program free, (We are not using it Commercially s we are not in the business to make Money!) We will be setting aside small Baht donations from all our staff to enable to purchase this program. 98% of our Staff are Expats who are retired US personell, and live off their SSI Benifits and some Times we have a small amount to share (30.767 Baht equals one USD as of Oct 11, 2012 1233hrs).

    Again EaseUS... "Thank You!!"

    "Brilliant, did exactly what I wanted..."

    September 24, 2012  |   By Alkemist02

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    I needed to create bootable Micro SD cards for a DRdos based control system that uses a simplistic BIOS and was having horrible issues however within half an hour of playing with this managed to create 4 fully operable cards.
    Easy to use, pretty foolproof even for me.

    Cons

    Couldn't find one.

    Summary

    Not the normal application I know but it worked great for me.
    Had to delete the partition, rewrite the MBR then copy over a working copy of the partition. I have spent a whole day with all the usual tools Fdisk and low level format tools etc and this was the software that did the job

    "Fully recommended!!!!"

    September 23, 2012  |   By rkitekto69

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    Easy to use, I mean really dummy proof, you can't get get any easier and straight forward that this. They have step by step instructions as well on any particular operation you want to make.
    The best part it's free for home users!!!!

    Cons

    None, as far my experience.

    "Essential Software for Any Disk Backup and Maintenance"

    September 19, 2012  |   By sbrobert

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    The closest replacement I have found for Partition Magic which was killed by Norton.

    When I buy a new drive, Partition Master lets me clone the old boot drive to the new one and expand it. In minutes I am up and running on the new drive, despite Microsoft's efforts to make it difficult.

    Partition Master also lets me back up entire drives as quickly as possible by making exact copies of partitions.

    Cons

    The only vital need that Partition Magic did that I cannot find on Partition Master: A way to copy a bootable drive to a new bootable drive without doing a full clone of the entire disk.

    Summary

    This software is Must Have for anyone running any computer with Windows! I cannot imagine not having these essential utilities for backing up and moving to bigger drives!

    "Great product and customer service"

    September 19, 2012  |   By astrogirl_uranhk

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    Most of time this works very well to adjust free space and move partitions etc. Never lost data yet.

    Cons

    Had one issue where lost free space when tried to increase it but tech support (free ver) replied right away and worked with me to resolve things, although had to eventually restore from a backup and convert partition to NTFS (maybe not so good with FAT32).

    Summary

    Mostly excellent product and fantastic support but always backup when doing partitioning with any software like this as things don't always go as wanted. With a data backup I was up and running again within a week. Easeus To Do backup is also an excellent backup program.

    "Partition Issues"

    September 18, 2012  |   By doumor99

    Version: EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Pros

    Moves partitions with ease.

    Cons

    all the instructions, text, readme files and online blogs do not deal with all the error issues.

    Summary

    Its OK, I come from the DOS era where you can load a RAM help issues and do everything in DOS for nothing.
