Easeus Partition Master Home Edition

CNET Editors' review

When you add a new hard drive or SSD to your system, you must format and partition it before you can use it. The best tool for the job is a full-featured disk partition manager, which can not only format and partition drives but repartition them, too, or change the partition type when your needs change; for instance, if you should move your C drive to an SSD, you can repartition the old drive for media storage. EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition is just such a tool. Unlike some so-called free disk partition managers, EaseUS Partition Master is a full-featured disk utility that is powerful enough to actually be useful.

We liked EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition the last time we looked at it, but it's easier to use than ever. The start screen includes an optional User's Guide, which we opened. Its headings describe what Partition Master can do: Extend System Partition, Merge Partitions, Convert Dynamic Disk to Basic Disk, Convert Primary to Logical Partition, and Copy Disk. Each operation is explained in both video and step-by-step tutorials. Next we clicked Go to Main Screen, which opened a clean, attractive interface sporting a classic disk manager layout, including table and graph data views, and with a welcome absence of oversize graphics. In addition to the main functions, Partition Master can also change labels, defragment disk and partitions, check your partitions, and create bootable CDs. A toolbar icon labeled Backup Tool doesn't access a feature but instead opens a link to download EaseUS Todo, a free backup tool we've used and recommend. You can also set a password to protect your disks, if necessary (or merely prudent).

EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition lived up to our expectations. We recommend starting with the Wizard menu, which provides easy-to-understand wizards for the three of the trickiest yet commonest tasks: Cloning a disk, copying a partition, and recovering a lost or damaged partition. And remember to back up any data you want to keep before you tinker with a partition! We like EaseUS Partition Master enough to make it our No. 1 partitioning tool.

    Cons

    it seems to me that the trial version as screwed my laptop, and now they want me to buy the full, thaks to them, one half of my hard drive has killed itself, now I can wave bye bye to all my business plans

    "Easy to use and effective"

    November 9, 2009  |   By qelan

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.0.1

    Pros

    It was very easy to resize my current partition to make room for a new one. There were no errors on reboot and everything was sized properly.

    Cons

    None that I could see.

    Summary

    This product would be great even if you had to pay for it. Since it is free, it is very easy to recommend it to anyone who needs to resize partitions.

    "Finally I can merge virtual disk partitions"

    November 5, 2009  |   By epekarik1

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.0.1

    Pros

    Awesome user interface. Find everything I need. Merge, split, resize... both virtual disk drives and can't ask anything more

    Cons

    can't find any bad things

    Summary

    I just added 10G to my virtual disk, but it was of course unallocated and not part of the C drive. Most partition tools refuse to play with virtual disk partitrions. Finally I found this today and it is free and worked to add the new space to my C drive

    "Wow! I feel almost TECH smart!"

    October 31, 2009  |   By drjeff6

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.0.1

    Pros

    This software has a great interface. It's logical and powerful. It does what it does quickly.

    Cons

    I really can't think of a one.

    Summary

    I used this to work on a drive that was consistently giving me delayed write errors. It turned out that there were some bad sectors on the old drive. However, this program did what I wanted as a first step towards working with it: format the drive.

    "Largely a very good piece of software"

    October 29, 2009  |   By IslandBoy_77

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.0.1

    Pros

    I've only used this for fairly rudimentary partition resizing and moving under XP, but the latest version appears to do this well, largely on the fly, with no obvious problems.

    Cons

    I have had issues with the earlier versions not implementing some changes, esp on the live boot volume, but other than that have not struck any recently.

    Summary

    Although I've only tested this under XP, this latest version appears to have ironed out some of the "kinks" I experienced now and again with the previous versions. Due to my limited and narrow-focus usage of this software, I can't rate it "excellent", because I don't know how other features perform. However, this program is the best of the free programs I've used over the last 18 months on XP.
