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.

"Won't work!"

March 22, 2013  |  By bobpegram1

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.6

Pros

Previous version have worked great for disk and partition cloning.

Cons

Previous version have worked great for disk and partition cloning. This one complains when the destination partition size is bigger than the source partition size! It throws an error and won't let me go any farther. That makes it worthless.
With previous versions, I would use Easeus Partition Master Home to partition the destination drive, then use Todo Backup to clone the first partition, adjust the unused space with Partition master to make them the same size, clone the second partition, adjust that size downward, etc.

Summary

It doesn't work! I installed it on a friends Windows 7 computer and had the problem mentioned above. Anybody know how to get a previous version so I have one that works?

"Easy to set up and flexible"

March 11, 2013  |  By len1016home

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.6

Pros

Relatively good user interface. Easy to check backup and restore only what is needed.
Calculate space required is a good feature when backing up only partial folders to a thumb drive or other device with limited capacity.

Cons

Some of the responses when setting up what to back up seem a bit misleading - you need to try it to understand what was actually included.
Estimate of time required to complete backup is a bit of a game at the beginning.

Summary

Free version works well. Have recommended it to friends who now also use it.

"Writing this review on laptop restored by EaseUS image"

March 10, 2013  |  By jwpowless

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.6

Pros

mostly intuitive, it works, it's free

Cons

I was confused during image creation and put the backup on my machine instead of on the portable drive I had plugged in. Probably my own fault.

Summary

I used EaseUS to make a full image backup of my HP G60 laptop, running WinVista Home Premium SP2. IE had become inoperable (its own solution was to try and use itself to check online for a problem - duh, the problem was IE would not go online), so I decided to take the opportunity to just restore the entire machine from the image I made.

I had mistakenly stored the image on my C:, but was able to transfer it to the portable drive I had intended. Once there I was able to restore this machine. It took awhile, but was completely successful. What more could I expect from this type of software. It is working or I would not be writing this from that same machine, right?

BTW, the stupid IE problem turned out to be from a stupid Flash update. I am having to run IE7 instead of IE9. As soon as I allowed IE to update to 9, the flash update crippled it again.

"didn't work"

March 02, 2013  |  By booktownx

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.6

Pros

see summary.

Cons

see summary.

Summary

Made a sector-by-sector backup and a boot disc, then when I tried to restore that backup it booted fine from the disc, discovered and allowed me to select the backup folder, then just sat there with a grayed out button to continue. Zero reason to use this over Windows built in disc imaging.

"Not for me !"

February 25, 2013  |  By Araha

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.6

Pros

??????????

Cons

Enough to make me uninstall !

Summary

After downloading Easeus the interface opened with the bottom of the window hiding behind the status bar, so that the buttons were not available to proceed. I had to unlock the status bar and shift it vertically to access the half visible buttons. After creating a bootable USB I went on for a trial. When the window appeared with options for clone, restore backup, etc., its close button had extended beyond the laptop screen disappearing altogether. The maximize button was missing. I could no way drag, stretch or shrink the window. Unable to access the the close button I had to force shut down manually. Such thing never happened before with any other software.

I downloaded this software for protecting my system, and not damaging it ! Uninstalled for good !

"Like Windows, fails to see network"

February 12, 2013  |  By MILESCFA

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.6

Pros

free if you don't need the advanced features

Cons

It appears your backup has to be on a drive installed in the PC where the target drive is. No network drives, even mapped ones, show up in the recovery console. Might as well use Win 7 (or Vista) backup and save the hard disk space (and registry entries, etc).

"Works like a charm every time."

February 12, 2013  |  By jjd057

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.6

Pros

Easy to use. Fast and simple. Installation is quick you're up and running in less than minutes. Has been the only backup/restore program I've used in two years. The home edition is free. I'm able to mount the image and recovery a single file if I needed.

Cons

Backup titling can be more friendly.

Summary

Highly recommended.

"Great Free software"

February 11, 2013  |  By Dozhillyer

 |  Version: EaseUS Todo Backup Free 5.6

Pros

I find this software very stable and easy to use.
It images the drives at a respectable speed and I have had very few fail-eyers of imaged drives. It is great that you can create a recovery CD or USB stick in just a couple of click.

Cons

The only thing I would like to see get better is the drive erase.
If you need to use this function be prepared for a long wait.

Summary

All in all I think this is the best all in one backup/imaging software I have found and it is FREE to us home users.
Thank Guy keep up the good work :)
