Easeus Partition Recovery

CNET Editors' review

Losing a disk partition can really make your day. It can happen in lots of ways, including viruses, bad software, and operator error. EaseUs Partition Recovery is a free tool that can recover and restore lost or damaged partitions in many cases. It can recover partitions on most hard disks, including IDE, ATA, SATA, and SCSI drives and FAT, NTFS, and EXT formats, for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. It recovers MBR and GPT partitions, too.

EaseUs Partition Recovery's wizard-based interface serves the dual purpose of making the tool very easy to use and of reducing the chance of making a mistake. Any time you're messing about with disk partitions, especially trying to recover lost or damaged partitions, there's always the potential to do more harm than good. But the wizard and a Web-based Help file provide some reassurance, even for inexperienced users. Recovering lost or damaged disk partitions isn't exactly the same as running an update, though, and it helps to have a basic grasp of what's involved before you run EaseUs Partition Recovery. For example, first make sure that the partition can't be recovered by ordinary means, such as unhiding it. A system backup is a good idea, too (always).

As luck would have it, we didn't have a partition to recover, so to test Partition Recovery, we deleted our MBR and...no. Obviously, we didn't inflict harm just to see if some freeware could fix it, which violates any number of Rule Number Ones. We've recovered our share of partitions, though, and the wizard-based process EaseUs Partition Recovery outlines makes it difficult to mess up. Of course, EaseUs Partition Recovery can't recover the partition it's installed on (how would it run?) or your MBR or GPT; you'll have to install the disk on another system running Partition Recovery, which is still probably easier and cheaper than buying a new computer. But if you lose your D drive partition, for instance, try EaseUs Partition Recovery. Of course, it's not a guarantee, and your partition might be unrecoverable. But you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying!

    June 12, 2012  |   By edv177

    Version: Easeus Partition Recovery 5.0.1

    Pros

    restored a partition i deleted by accident on my external Terra drive! an its FREE!!!!!!

    Cons

    NONE!! works perfectly

    Summary

    i got a virus tht ended up blowing my motherboard. i thought the hard drive was corrupt so i went to install windows again an i was gonna format tht drive. well i forgot i left my terra drive plugged in to my USB an accidentally deleted the partition on it an lost all access to my terra drive. so i called WD an told them my pc wont recognize my terra drive an they suggested i use a recovery program to retrieve the information from it. so i downloaded EASEUS data recovery first an you only get 1 GB of free retrieval any more then tht an its $70 for the down load version, NOT the box (cd) version tht was $90. so i found this an it worked 100% an i totally recovered everything! totally satisfied! highly recommended! DO NOT FORMAT YOUR DRIVE LOSING EVERYTHING TRY THIS FIRST!!

    "Recovered EVERYTHING !"

    May 17, 2012  |   By arasu467

    Version: Easeus Partition Recovery 5.0.1

    Pros

    I just recovered ALL the drives along with all the documents I had lost.
    For some reason, my HD partitions except for C Drive were all missing (It was not hidden as I was seeing all the partitions as one big "unallocated" drive), including the recovery partition ! With EaseUs recovery I was able to recover everything I had lost the way they were.
    Easy to use.
    Gets the job done.
    Thanks for the great software !

    Cons

    None until now.

    Summary

    Great Software !
    Try running this software before going on to full system recovery if you have deleted any partitions or if they are missing.

    "my findings on the source of this download."

    May 9, 2012  |   By spankynnnnnsss

    Version: Easeus Partition Recovery 5.0.1

    Pros

    here is the source info of this software
    IP Address: 213.92.151.227
    website: http://www.easeus.com/
    author: Chengdu Yiwo
    Location: City: Pittsburgh
    Country: United States
    Continent: North America

    This proram is coming right from the websites server. It looks like the author simpley put their freeware across many websites.
    So I say this prgram is safe for all to download. The internet connection simpley promps you to get a full version of the product.
    If you have maleware coming up on your pc you already had it or you used a torrent to download it.

    If you like my reviews and my source finding or would like any other source info or reviews on software please leave a reply

    Cons

    The website format looked very poor

    Summary

    Even tho I would say going to bestbuy and buying a full use recovery tool this one will still do a decent job but not as good as a paid for full one. 3 and a half stars

    "Safe to install?"

    April 25, 2012  |   By SailingDreams

    Version: Easeus Partition Recovery 5.0.1

    Pros

    Don't know. Didn't install. See cons.

    Cons

    Why would the downloaded .exe try to access the internet when executed? Most anti virus tools don't like that type of behavior.

    Summary

    I wouldn't feel safe using this download because it tries to access the internet on install. Should check where this software originates.

    "Why is this free?!"

    February 10, 2012  |   By magesha

    Version: Easeus Partition Recovery 5.0.1

    Pros

    - Easy to use interface
    - Works smooth and fast
    - Many options and methods to find the lost partitions
    - Prevents heart attacks and keeps bunnies alive!

    Cons

    - The help text at the bottom near the last step says "Select your partition and hit "Proceed" but nothing happens for a while when you select the partition...
    Just be patient, a window pops up showing all the files that I will be able to restore; once you hit OK there, it proceeds to restore the partition.

    Summary

    Man, I almost died! KDE partition tool crashed halfway through shrinking my data partition! All my stuff! My work stuff! My games, music, books! GONE! Panicked search on the internet for options. Some "FREE" tools that scanned my disk for 2 hours found half the files, then wanted me to buy it if I wanted the files.. SIGH! Then I found EASUS Partition Recovery. I first tried selecting the partition but that didn't find the lost one; then used the sector range, and it found it! Recovered it! All set! Highly recommended
