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.

"system backup crashed my system"

January 20, 2013  |  By coloratura

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.5

Pros

It did a file backup with no problem (but I haven't tried to use it to restore)

Cons

When I tried to do a system backup, it froze and crashed my system. It did it twice; the second time, it was so bad that I had to do a system restore: it wiped my user settings, desktop backgroud and files.

Summary

Doesn't work, sadly.

"Used to be perfect but now won't run on Win7"

January 20, 2013  |  By toddwarrenbeck

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.5

Pros

Easy, intuitive, restoration flawless

Cons

Ever since Version 5 I can't get it to run on my system--even to restore old images, which is scary.

Summary

Something happened when Version 5x was released. i don't know if it's my system only or a conflict between an old version and version 5x. Mutiple uninstalls and reinstalls will enable the program to launch once, but when I try to launch it a second time it just times out "please reinstall." I'm frustrated because when it runs it's the best thing since sliced bread.

"Couldn't Be Easier !"

January 16, 2013  |  By tonester59

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.5

Pros

Simple wizard based interface; no complicated tutorials (just nose around a bit and use your common sense - you'll figure it out.) I had no trouble making a full system back-up to an external hard drive (which the program identified on installation - very impressive ). It worked great.

Cons

None at this point. (But bear in mind I haven't had to use it for a system recovery, and hopefully will never have to, but that will be the true test of this program's efficacy.)

Summary

After fighting with the atrocious Windows 7 Backup, and trying the very disappointing (and misleading) Macrium Reflect, EaseUS Todo is like a breath of fresh air. I can't imagine a backup program being any easier to use. I've only used it for one system backup at this point, and will have to see how it handles the next one (whether it does a true incremental/differential backup or overwrites the old one with a new one - either way will suit my needs). But I have to say I'm very impressed at this point. One thing I would like to point out, however, is that when you go to create a rescue disc, don't use auto-play to format the disc - the program will do that itself. They make everything easy and I give it my highest recommendation.

"Old version was better"

January 13, 2013  |  By si

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.5

Pros

Fairly easy to use; a bit confusing to get it set up just right.

Cons

I had version 3.x on a WinXP Pro SP3 computer. It had options for encryption, password protect and email notifications. I upgraded to this version (5.5) and I got BSODs several times. Additionally, those options I mentioned are no longer available.

Summary

Not happy with the changes (downgrades) or the BSODs.

"It simply works"

January 12, 2013  |  By Strith

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.5

Pros

Clone tool works flawlessly and quickly.
During clone you don't have to boot from a disk you can do it inside Windows.

Cons

None. Though I didn't try the other tools.

Summary

I was upgrading to a new SSD and simply used the clone tool to copy my current drive to the new SSD. From inside Windows the tool allowed me to automatically resize the Windows partition during the copy and upon reboot (after switching the boot order in my BIOS) the new drive booted up and I was rockin' an awesome new SSD no sweat & no tears.

"Failed to restore my entire music collection."

January 12, 2013  |  By kingeryck

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.5

Pros

Pros? Not a single thing. It installed without a problem I guess.

Cons

I was upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7. I wanted to start off clean so I transferred just my personal files to my backup drive. Finished installing Windows and told EaseUS to restore my files. Well.. now I have to find some way to get all my music back because it didn't restore a single file from back up. Thanks a lot.

Summary

If you value your files, don't use this program.
