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.

    "Simple Interface, but tasks not functional"

    June 2, 2012  |   By Joe-Black-007

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.1.1

    Pros

    simple interface, Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 9.1.1

    Cons

    using 2 new harddrives of the same make and size (2TB Intenso Memory Tower) it was NOT possible to copy the full partition to the other drive - error: too small = not funny, if they 2nd hdd is empty and the same size & model. (mandatory checkdsk was completed without problems)

    "Amazingly easy to use"

    January 29, 2010  |   By ashwin_geek

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.1.1

    Pros

    Very easy to use, dont get confused by the looks. Extremely fast to resize a partition. Very safe. I can vouch for them

    Cons

    No complaints. Simply a delight

    Summary

    Awesome software. I was trying to create a new partition on my HDD. I knew it was complicated. I got the Easeus Partition Master Pro on a giveaway and sent a email to their tech support requesting help. They were fantastic, they sent an email me with links on how to use it. I created a new partition in seconds. I restarted my computer and both the partitions were working as i hoped. Really fast and a safe way to resize partitions. Incredible.

    "So easy for a novice like me to re-size partitions"

    January 27, 2010  |   By scolvig

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.1.1

    Pros

    I knew nothing about partitions, but my laptop only had 29 GB in drive C, and 189 GB in D, which was empty. I was afraid to mess with it at first, but I tried this program. It was so easy and only took a few minutes. My problem is solved.

    Cons

    Nothing, it worked flawlessly.

    "Easy-peasy lemon squeezy!"

    January 26, 2010  |   By mizlydia

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.1.1

    Pros

    I was able to use it without any explanation or hesitation. It worked quickly and now my C drive is expanded so I have enough space to defrag. (I had made the C partition too small, silly me!)

    Cons

    Nothing. I love it!

    Summary

    Don't be afraid to use it... it works. No doubt just as good as the products you must pay for.

    "Easy to use, but I had problems extending a Partition"

    January 26, 2010  |   By MichaelRDD

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.1.1

    Pros

    IT has a very clear operating page.

    Cons

    It did not work well on my laptop. I had changed my hard disk to a larger one, & had copied the data using a copy disk program. I could not get this Partition manager to extend the main partition into the spare space that the larger drive offered.

    Summary

    I very much like how the program was presented, and the instructions were clear. and using it after I had reloaded my hard disk with the copy disk program, it did allow me to change the two main partitions,Making the smaller partition with the operating data on it downwards, and the, main partition larger using the extra space gained from the other partition. This was reasonably easy operation, but when you hit the apply button to carry out the change in the sizes, it took rather a long time to run through.

    "Excellent software, but needs Win7 compatibility"

    January 25, 2010  |   By steelersownyou

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.1.1

    Pros

    Ease of use, straightforward, snazzy interface

    Cons

    Does not support 64 bit OS's, platforms

    Summary

    This is easy to use, as creating / managing partitions is a snap. It sure beats using a utility...such as MS-DOS' "Fdisk", "Diskpart" commands. I just wish that it supported Windows 7 HE, which is a 64-bit operating system.

    "Great program, but lacks x64 support :("

    January 24, 2010  |   By EZInfo

    Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 4.1.1

    Pros

    Simple to use, gets the job done, free, not bloated.

    Cons

    Need Pro version for x64 windows, free only supports x86, and x64 is increasingly common

    Summary

    I would recommend this to any techie who needs to partition a disk. It is simple, easy to use, and free.
    But because the the free version only supports x86 Windows, I knocked off one star, giving it a 4/5 instead of 5/5. Still a great tool though!
