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.

    "Free backup saved me!"

    October 14, 2014   |   By mmpbb

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 7.0

    Pros

    Free, easy to use, works

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say

    Summary

    I own a business and since having children have logged in remotely to do payroll and accounting from my home computer. Thankfully I had been backing up with EaseUS because recently my computer crashed. Due to this free software I was able to easily retrieve all my important data. I would have been in big trouble without it.

    "Great backup software, and it is free"

    July 17, 2014   |   By justindava

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    I have used the backup software in Win XP, Vista, Win7. Actually works better as far as I am concerned than built-in backup of Win7. Have a scenario where I need to backup two pc's to a flash drive or ext hard drive. With Win7 backup mapping to the flash drive ESPECIALLY if the other pc is NOT Win7 does not always work. With Easeus, no problem.

    Cons

    I didn't find any cos during the backup

    Summary

    Easy to use, effective backup program

    "A Catastrophe!"

    July 16, 2014   |   By SorinAcela

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    nothing at all

    Cons

    may destroy your work giving you a false feeling of security
    bad customer service

    Summary

    I can't understand why this stupid EaseUS Todo Backup is so praised. "Spectacular", Download.com??? To me it meant CATASTROPHE.

    I could sense the dizzy incompetence of these Chinese guys from the first moments, when I wanted to buy it. The price on their web site was listed as $23.20, but when I clicked on the BUY NOW button, you send me to this page https://shopper.mycommerce.com/checkout/cart/view, where the price is $28.77!

    Next sing of incompetence: I wanted to speak to "Live Chat" Support (on their web site). I got a message that I was the 5th in line and it will take 3-4 minutes until my turn comes. I got to the 2nd position in 2 hours when I gave up.

    Then they gave me a discount coupon that, of course, couldn't be applied. It took them several days to process my simple order.

    When you install the stupid software, it hacks your computer initiating a sort of dual boot (it adds Linux to your computer), without your permission and without any warning. At that time I was looking for a solution to the stupid Windows 8 self-killing Restore points. I used this stupid EaseUS Todo Backup tool to "backup" my system disk, because one of its characteristics LOOKED similar to Windows Restore.

    Such a thing is supposed to be the "snapshots"
    http://www.todo-backup.com/support/help/what-is-snapshot.htm

    They say, after you do the first fundamental backup, you can just take "snapshots" of the current states of the system and then you can restore it to one of those states later. And that was supposed to happen very fast.

    However, when I had to restore my system to a previous state, instead of a "fast" recovery, the restoration took 18-19 hours! (A simple Windows-type restoration may take 2 hours.) All this time the estimation was displayed as "5 minutes" remaining or so.

    Instead of a "system restore" (in the meaning of Windows, and keeping the modified documents, pictures and similar files), it performed a "partition restore" (all files went back to the state before my first backup), which made me lose everything I worked during a couple of weeks.

    It took a very long time and it was unsuccessful: neither operating system was recognized any more (Windows 8.1, Linux), and some files were badly restored (DOC, XLS).

    Even so, my system wasn't functional any more, meaning Windows 8.1 couldn't be started any more. Not even the Todo Backup Home Linux partition worked. Sadly, I had to perform a Windows repair.

    Finally, it took about two weeks for them to refund the stupid 20 USD.

    Do not use software from people who have a poor technical understanding of even fundamental concepts, and such poor English.

    "Works for everything but cloning"

    June 22, 2014   |   By ARREB

    Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 6.5

    Pros

    Does everything correctly but cloning.

    Cons

    Does not clone correctly. Even if you set the clone copy to active if will never boot to it. I am a 25 year computer tech and used ghost and other programs. If you want to do a clone I suggest you look elsewhere.

    Summary

    Great for everything it states but useless for cloning a hard drive to switch out hard drives.
