Editors' Review

+

EaseUS Todo Backup Free lets you create backups of your important files or your entire computer through its streamlined interface. Just choose the type of backup you'd like to create to get started, and let the program do the rest.

Pros

Backup options: There are several different options for creating a backup through this program. These include Disk/Partition Backup, File Backup, System Backup, and Smart Backup. You can also clone your hard drive in the event that you have to switch it out for a new one. You can also specify whether you want to recover your files to the original location or a separate recovery location, and whether or not you want to replace existing files.

File monitoring: This app allows you to set up a schedule for the program to monitor certain files through the Smart Backup feature. Every time modifications are detected in the monitored files, the app will automatically create a backup of the new versions, so you never have to worry about losing your latest work.

Cons

Constant nagging: This app is free, but there are frequent pop-ups asking you to upgrade. While some of this is to be expected in a free app, the extent of it in this program seems a little excessive.

Bottom Line

EaseUS Todo Backup Free is a handy tool for backing up some or all of your files as often as you'd like. The Smart Backup is an especially convenient feature, and while the app does bombard you a bit with requests to upgrade, this doesn't actually impact the effectiveness of the program.

"Use the free version but forget about the "upgrades""

July 14, 2016  |  By daddyo34119

2016-07-14 09:09:55  |  By daddyo34119

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 9.2

Pros

Sometimes backs up data successfully.

Cons

Buggy. Erratic. Unreliable. Exceedingly slow (even without compression). Upgrade supposedly gets you more speed (no proof of this from my experience) and support (which in reality is in the form of chat with somebody in China after 9:00 PM EST). "30-day money-back guarantee" is a stretch. You'll only get that after hours of proving that the software doesn't do what it is described as doing by the publisher.

Summary

If you're OK with a hit-and-miss proprietary back-up solution, go for it, but don't waste any money on "upgrades".

"Doesn't restore GPT drives on UEFI systems"

June 26, 2016  |  By J.S.05

2016-06-26 02:34:44  |  By J.S.05

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 9.2

Pros

Nice GUI. That's about it.

Cons

On a UEFI boot system running Win 10 on a GPT disk, it creates an image ok but can't restore to a blank new hard drive. Scenario: say your primary hard drive failed and you replaced it with a new one. Using the recovery boot disc to restore the image will fail because it won't recognize the new disk. And if it does recognize the disk, it will consider it an MBR disk and fail with an error message that the destination drive can't be found. You can force it to restore the image but it won't automatically convert the disk to GPT so the system will not boot. Be careful that you not overwrite the USB hard drive that contains your backup image because it may show up as a potential destination and you could lose all your data. This GPT/MBR problem has existed since version 8.0 and I have gone back and forth with their tech support many times and they just don't get it.

Summary

Stay away from this product until they fix it.

"So Slow I Couldn't Stand It"

April 02, 2016  |  By jtomcoburn

2016-04-02 22:26:14  |  By jtomcoburn

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 9.1

Pros

It Is Easy to Use and set up a daily, weekly or whatever back you want. It is easy to pick the files you want to backup and it has a lot of features that I didn't try.

Cons

When I first installed the program it seemed to work pretty good and I was backing up about 3.0 GB using a USB 3.0 Seagate ext. HDD. It took about 8 minutes to do my daily backup.But then it started to have incidents of crashing and re-installations of the program where required. Then the backups started getting slower and slower until they taking over an hour and many times the backup was not complete, it might on back up a few MB then stop. Using the free version you get no tech support so I bought the Home version just to get some help. I was an idiot as I didn't realize they have a 30-day free trial. But the Support is terrible. They have chat and email support but if you follow the links you seem to always end up on a page where they want to sell you something. I have removed the program from my computer and I am doing my backups manually in Windows Explorer with copy/paste. The same backup that was taking EaseUS over an hour I can do in less than a minute manually.

Summary

I have tried a lot of backup software and none have worked, including the stuff that comes with Win 10. I recommend a simple copy/paste in Windows Explorer. EaseUS is hard to get a refund from, so be careful if you decide to buy.from them on trial basis.

"Don't do it."

January 04, 2016  |  By Irishpepper

2016-01-04 10:05:46  |  By Irishpepper

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 9.0

Pros

Free software worked fine but then....

Cons

I purchased a license but it wouldn't work with free software. Told to uninstall and install again. Uninstalled but when I tried to install it told me the old software hadn't uninstalled correctly. Asked again what to do seller told me to use a tool they provide to clean registry. Tried using it but MS said their certificate wasn't valid. Gave up and asked for my money back per their 30 day guarantee and was told I didn't qualify. I had purchased the license two days ago so why didn't I qualify? They told me they could fix the problem if I gave them access to my computer on line.

Summary

I'm not giving them access to my computer and nor do I think I have to. They did not supply me with working software and I want my money back it's that simple. Do not trust these guys, they'll rip you off.

"YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. 1/2 star in order to post"

January 01, 2016

2016-01-01 19:02:25

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 9.0

Pros

the seduction of the lowered (even sale price) Purchased EaseUs Todo PC Transprofessional 8.6 sale went quick registration/activation link sent rapidly following what i could glean from their evasive description, seemed easy enough to follow.

Cons

I prepared for this transfer as i have never prepared before, as i so wanted this to go smoothly and i was shelving out $49.95 on sale!! Everything was printed out and ready to be followed. I had been working all day cleaning up drives making backups on at least 3 different external hard drives. So I finally get everything set up, and try to activate the software, and the system wouldnt even let me in despite several other attempts using a different approach. So i call customer support in either Pakistan or India, and the service rep didnt even try to troubleshoot the problem but instead suggested i send my report via email to their technical support. I told him i tried that and the link for that goes nowhere. So sounding like a beaten man he tells me about the possible two step process for a refund. I was so fired up that i said no I want the refund processed now. He did but then made it very clear that i might have to ask more than twice to recieve it!! unbelieveable.

Summary

I researched everything trying to find the compromise between something that looked like it would work and keeping costs down. I was not only disappointed but angry at discovering the uselessnes of the product and service support (24/7) btw when i needed it the most. Pissed off that because i have to get the job done quickly i was forced to cave and purchase a product for twice the amount of $, Not even sure that this one will be so easy as there is a 37 page owner's manual to prepare and guide the user through the transfer process. UGH there has got to be an easier, simpler and less expensive, less anxiety and frustrating way to tackle this task!! I am not an illiterate but all of this is unfamiliar territory. I am sure that there are a whole lot of people similar to me out there.

"Write speed is way throttled"

October 12, 2015  |  By lemuts

2015-10-12 18:25:50  |  By lemuts

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 8.6

Pros

The program is free, intuitive, and well-designed.

Cons

Write speed to the Blu Ray drive couldn't be slower. Apparently the free version is restricted in this way to render it less "powerful."

Summary

Note to EaseUS:
People won't buy the upgrade if they don't know why the free version is so bad.

"At least it didn't kill my O.S."

August 29, 2015  |  By lorenestes

2015-08-29 06:26:27  |  By lorenestes

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 8.6

Pros

At least it didn't kill my O.S. like AOMEI Backupper did. Is that a pro? As I noted with that other piece of software, nice GIU. Easy to use (even if it doesn't work).

Cons

When I went to restore one of my pc's from backup, it was unable to do it. So, that was quite useless.

Summary

I guess you get what you pay for. I have had no luck, none, with these free ones.

"Misleading advertising"

August 19, 2015

2015-08-19 14:38:30

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 8.6

Pros

does work for many claimed features

Cons

Claims to make drive images.. what they fail to mention, is that the 'image' it creates is in a completely proprietary format, that you cannot do anything with unless you have Todo Backup installed. Unlike other products that make an actual image.. like ISO, VMDK, VHD, VHDX etc which are usable..

Summary

Don't waste your money if you want to image disks.

"cannot restore a raid system"

August 03, 2015  |  By craig_And_dog

2015-08-03 14:40:44  |  By craig_And_dog

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 8.5

Pros

looks like it is working until you need to restore!

Cons

no meaningful tech support.
does not check for valid backup files after they are created.
cannot restore a raid system using an emergency disk-- nasty suprise
error codes are meaningless!

Summary

There are so many bugs in this thing it is hard to know where to start. the one thing this type of program must do is restore images after total hardware failure and this system cannot do this for raid systems. Using this tool is like wearing a condom with a hole in it.
