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.

"Outstanding user-friendly re-partition software"

July 31, 2011  |  By timho123

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 8.0.1

Pros

It is very easy to use and understandable.

Cons

It failed to launch the Boot Manager Mode during restart.

Summary

It was prefect to resize and re-partition my c,d, e drives. However, it failed to launch the Boot Manager Mode during the reboot at first. With the help of the forum support, it worked finally by adding a EpmStart.txt to under C:\Windows\. Highly recommend it!

"Trojan Horse! BEWARE!"

July 29, 2011  |  By headlinenews

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 8.0.1

Pros

Free, but you are opening a backdoor for the Chinese Communist!

Cons

This software is written by a company owned by the Chinese Communist Party. There are good functions built in, but beware that sensitive data may be transferred to the evil.

Summary

DON'T OPEN A BACKDOOR FOR THE COMMUNIST!

Updated on Mar 15, 2013

You really need to do a better job hiding your connections to the Chinese government. It is all available and searchable on google.

"Didn't have "Merge" Feature as Described"

July 28, 2011  |  By rlross

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 8.0.1

Pros

Decent, when it works. Fairly clean interface.

Cons

Ended up using built-in Win 7 disk manage utility. Why bother with 3rd party utility than does less than the one bundled with the OS?

"Great for Managing Partitions, Bad GUI"

July 27, 2011  |  By afig23

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 8.0.1

Pros

- Very Easy to manage drives
- Looks nice
- Has lots of extra features
- Even Gives GUI when Rebooting for a boot drive

Cons

- Has a glitchy interface
~If another window is open in front of it, the window is "Burned in" (Resolved by minimizing)
~Context menu may get stuck open

Summary

This Program is great for any kind of user. It was the first FreeWare program that I found that could Merge Drives easily. I've already tried it on a Portable USB drive, an SD card, and my main boot Hard Drive. I expected the screen to just stay dark for a few minutes after rebooting to re-size my boot drive but before showing the login screen if has a little window that shows your progress. The GUI can get annoying at times but it's worth what power the program has.

"Absolutely Brilliant!"

July 27, 2011  |  By Lord_Muck

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 8.0.1

Pros

I resized my partitions quickly and easily. Easy to follow instructions online with pictures to help with every step. Worked a charm!

Cons

None that I am aware of.

Summary

I had been having problems trying to resize the drives through windows 7 disk manager to no avail. I was getting nowhere even with help from forums. I thought I would give this a try and was able to resize my drives quickly and easily without any problems. I must admit I was a little cynical that there must be a catch and would only partially complete the task. But it does what it says on the tin. Thank you Easeus!!

"Excellent! It worked like magic on my Windows XP!"

July 18, 2011  |  By chakwing24

 |  Version: Easeus Partition Master Home Edition 8.0.1

Pros

Very user-friendly -- and it is free! Thank you so much for your kindness in uploading such goody!

Cons

Well, it would be impertinent of me to try and pick bones from an egg.

Summary

I did not know how to create partitions when I was installing Windows XP and as a result there was no partition after I installed it. Fortunately, I found your free software and tried it. It just worked very well and saved me a lot of trouble. There is, indeed, free lunch in this world! Thanks once again!
