EaseUS Todo Backup Free

CNET Editors' review

Good backup utilities that combine maximum user friendliness with excellent functionality and some helpful extras take the chore out of an essential duty. When all that comes for free, the excuse to blow off backups wears thin. Easeus Todo Backup is just such a free backup and restore utility. Like any good backup tool, it will back up your entire system's current state, data, settings and all, or just what you want it to, including partitions or full disks, and restore your computer in the event of a hard-disk crash or other calamity. Its Disk Cloning feature will help you migrate your operating system and data to a new hard disk when it's time to replace the old one. You can also use it to create bootable CD-ROMs using either Linux or the powerful Windows Pre-installation Environment (PE), which is a big improvement over MS-DOS.

Two things set Todo Backup apart from many other backup utilities (three things, if you count that it's free): its easy-to-use interface and its wizard-based operation. Colorful, large, clearly labeled buttons and icons make it easy for even new computer owners to use, a big plus because they need protection the most yet are usually inexperienced at securing it. The program walks users through its operations and explains each step with detailed instructions, augmented by a good Help file for further assistance.

Todo Backup is freeware and is certified for Windows 7. It downloads as a compressed file but extracts, installs, and opens without fuss.

    "Nice and easy to use"

    April 3, 2014  |   By hostcadavin

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    It works well and contains the most features I need.
    Step by step introduction helps me finish the operation smoothly.
    I have used folder backup and disk clone, and it saved me much time.

    Cons

    Paid version has more functions.

    Summary

    Useful backup and clone freeware

    "Spotty performance on paid 4.5 Edition"

    April 2, 2014  |   By brainout

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    * Chinglish instructions, but intelligible for the most part.
    * Sector-by-sector Clone is slow, but is the only way to go, if you want a 'live' bootable external copy; it works well for XP. So well, in fact, that when you plug in the cloned disk into a different XP machine which is already on and in Windows, it automatically reboots.

    Cons

    * can recognize but cannot properly clone any disk with Linux partitions.
    * cannot recognize an 'ext' partition which was created in Linux or by the Partition Master program, and cannot properly clone it.
    *If you cloned an XP hard drive with it, Windows 7 cannot recognize that partition's file system, though it will recognize the drive.
    *File backup and other backup programs in it, are useless.
    * Windows can't be resized, so if you're using this on a netbook, the stupid windows are too big, even if you resize Windows dpi to something small, like 80% of 'normal'. VERY BAD DESIGN, for smaller screens.
    *Won't work with Norton GoBack 'on'.
    *Its WinPE is dysfunctional, but see 'clone' in Pro's above and below.

    Summary

    This summary concerns the whole suite, as I've more room to write. I bought this suite of programs (including Data Recovery and Partition Master) twice; latest purchase was October 2012. Todo Backup is the least useful of them, but it is useful to CLONE I need most, my XP machines. NEVER allow automatic backup for any function.

    The Partition Master program is limited, even in the paid version, but is good. What's best about this suite, is that you can put it on an SD, rather than taking up space on yet another USB stick. Install the WHOLE SUITE on something external, not your C drive, else you'll have problems like you cannot imagine, because all three programs are designed to work together.

    I have no faith in its WinPE version, and very little faith in the Data Recovery wizard. The latter sometimes works, sometimes not. You have to experiment. Some people swear by these programs. I find them subpar, but as above described, can be useful.

    Included in the suite are programs that either don't work well, like Kingsoft, or programs allegedly in bundle for which you receive keys, but there's no way to download the software! I wrote to EASEUS about this twice, and got no help.

    If I find any workarounds or better things to say, I'll add comments to this review, later. Again, this concerns the October 2012 edition of the software. I didn't try the 'free' editions.

    Updated on Apr 2, 2014

    UPDATE, re Windows 7 not recognizing the cloned partition. I might be wrong about that; since I can't edit my first review, just ignore that negative comment. Will test again, and update this review with the results.

    One thing I want to say, is that EASEUS people do respond to emails. They just don't seem to offer any useful help, when they do reply, but the people are always very nice. Maybe it's a language barrier?

    Updated on Apr 2, 2014

    Update on the problem of Windows 7 not recognizing the XP clone drive: Win7 won't recognize the drive at all, even in diskmgmt.msc; the drive doesn't even show up . But XP will recognize it without rebooting, even the XP it was cloned from, or another XP.

    So here's where I erred: the clone which makes even another XP reboot, is a clone made from Clonezilla sector-to-sector clone.

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    very simple to use and back up my pictures and emails well. clone is another useful function to move all the data from one disk to another.

    Cons

    none to list

    Summary

    good free software

    "Directions are not understandable"

    March 28, 2014  |   By tolleb

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    Haven't really found any

    Cons

    Non-standard terminology in instructions. Can't figure out difference between types of backups.

    All backups are encoded, not plain text or even zip files.

    Summary

    After using for 3 weeks I simply don't trust this software with my backups.

    "Great BU & Cloning Product!"

    March 21, 2014  |   By ewkeim

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    Easy to use. Simple. Clear instructions. Easy as pie. It works. Great price. Works with Win 8.1.

    Cons

    None to date.

    Summary

    I have tried other perhaps better known BU and clone programs and this is the best. I use it to clone a second HD on a monthly basis so I always have a ready-to-go HD if my primary HD fails. I highly recommend this program.

    "Used only 3 times, taking some time to learn how to use"

    March 13, 2014  |   By wdwrkamp

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    Does what it says it will do.

    Cons

    Even though I feel moderately computer savvy, I am having trouble understanding what some of the phrases mean on the main screen. I continue to learn, though.

    Summary

    Once I find what I want to do, it seems easy to use, but the next time I go to use it, I forget what to do. Maybe it needs to be more descriptive with pop up tips on the buttons telling you what the button does.
    I feel more at ease knowing I have my complete computer backed up now as I have lost irreplaceable items on past hard drives that I thought would never go bad.

    February 16, 2014  |   By marineskip

    Pros

    very easy to use and backup or clone. I found cloning just a little slow even with SSD, still does a good result.

    Cons

    Little slow on cloning but still worth the effort.
