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.

"Too many limitations"

June 29, 2010  |  By euner

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 5.8.1

Pros

Free version easy to use - does a few more things than Disk Manager. If the free version meets your needs it works ok.

Cons

Doesn't work on 64 bit windows. Doesn't work on Mac drives running boot camp (zero functionality here).

Summary

I ended up buying the Pro version to get by the limitations. Pro version is still zero functionality in boot camp environment (whereas Disk Mgr works). So the product turned out to be useless to me.
Requests for help through the products help page went unanswered. Inquiries about refund went unanswered.
Free version ok, but buyer beware for any of the paid versions.

"This Product is Spectacular!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

June 26, 2010  |  By nsbscool1

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 5.8.1

Pros

Its so easy to use and straight to the point.

Cons

COULDN'T FIND ONE YET

Summary

I really loved this software. I have an external HDD which was previously formatted in NTFS. Unfortunately I couldn't use that with my portable DVD Player's USB. I tried several file system converters in vain. But this piece of marvel worked just fine for me.. converted from NTFS to FAT32 (in Windows7) in like 2-3 secs only. Thanks a lot Easeus Partition Master. It's a software definitely to recommend.

"Simple and easy!"

June 23, 2010  |  By masterwho

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 5.8.1

Pros

-Very simple and easy to understand
-So much better than using the old process of reinstalling
-Incredibly useful

Cons

- To enter the desired storage capacity of the partition you have to input it as MB's. Would be good if you could just tell the program how many GB's you want and then have it calculate it for you.

Summary

If you want a partition manager this is the one.

"Free version not good enough"

June 20, 2010  |  By scottandrsn

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 5.8.1

Pros

Very easy to use, if I purchased the upgrade I would have loved this.

Cons

The free version only does 1gig of recovery.
Would not work for me, I'm looking for a simply, FREE utility. One that doesn't require an upgrade to use.

Summary

I accidentally deleted the partition sector on my secondary hard drive when I was installing Windows 7, all I need was something to copy the backup partition info on sector 6 to the original on sector 0 but the it would restore just the partition, it wanted to 'restore' the whole 10gig drive.

"Excellent free partition manager."

June 20, 2010  |  By adsc

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 5.8.1

Pros

Easy of use & professional

Cons

What I don't like about it is .. as IT Specialist that I have to install the SW on any PC that I need to use it on it ... it will be great if you create an iso version runs directly from a bootable CD, or you create a portable version.

Summary

I wish if you can provide a portable version, technical IT's will love it.

"NOT for 64 bit Windows 7 !"

June 18, 2010  |  By Dwnldr7

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 5.8.1

Pros

Seems great for 32 bit systems.

Cons

The download from CNET and the maker's website make it very clear the free version will NOT work for 64 bit versions of WINDOWS 7. CNET does not make this clear.
For 64 bit systems, a paid version apparently will be required (not costly).
