Editors' Review

+

Good backup utilities that combine maximum user friendliness with excellent functionality and some helpful extras take the chore out of an essential duty. When all that comes for free, the excuse to blow off backups wears thin. Easeus Todo Backup is just such a free backup and restore utility. Like any good backup tool, it will back up your entire system's current state, data, settings and all, or just what you want it to, including partitions or full disks, and restore your computer in the event of a hard-disk crash or other calamity. Its Disk Cloning feature will help you migrate your operating system and data to a new hard disk when it's time to replace the old one. You can also use it to create bootable CD-ROMs using either Linux or the powerful Windows Pre-installation Environment (PE), which is a big improvement over MS-DOS.

Two things set Todo Backup apart from many other backup utilities (three things, if you count that it's free): its easy-to-use interface and its wizard-based operation. Colorful, large, clearly labeled buttons and icons make it easy for even new computer owners to use, a big plus because they need protection the most yet are usually inexperienced at securing it. The program walks users through its operations and explains each step with detailed instructions, augmented by a good Help file for further assistance.

Todo Backup is freeware and is certified for Windows 7. It downloads as a compressed file but extracts, installs, and opens without fuss.

"Logic error on Incremental backup"

December 03, 2011  |  By BrianWesterman

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 3.5

Pros

It does back up data, but slowly, and apparently the incremental logic is faulty

Cons

I created a full backup on Thursday night that ran for about 55 minutes to backup my 80GB primary and 2TB secondary drive, then on Friday night, tried to create an incremental backup of the same drives, but finally cancelled it after it was still running an hour later.

I had expected it to run VERY quickly as not much could have changed, I didn't defrag the drive or anything, but I do use the PC extensively every day. Still, Acronis TI 2011 (the 2012 version is bad) is able to do that same incremental in under 3 minutes.

Summary

Maybe I'll try it again in a year or so, especially if Acronis TI 2013 is as bad as 2012 was.

"Backup, yes. Recovery, not so much"

December 31, 2011  |  By tonykaz1

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 3.5

Pros

Can schedule automated backups of files, partitions, disks, or system. Can back up to network locations. Can clone diss. Can restore to dissimilar hardware.

Cons

Can't recover data. Large folders have numerous 2 gig files - which one should you pick? There is almost always a problem with the image. I will caution you to attempt a recovery before it matters so you can see how the product performs. For me, not well.

Summary

Backup software is only useful if one can recover the system and / or files from it after a problem. I think they still have some bugs to work out in the recovery part of their software. It's worth the money - you get what you pay for and the free price pretty says it all.

"Best free cloning software out there"

December 30, 2011  |  By cpsesq

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 3.5

Pros

Clones perfectly.

Cons

I did not find any.

Summary

I bought a new hard drive and wanted to clone the old one onto it. I tried some other free cloning software that cloned the drive but it did not boot up. This one got the job done. It cloned it and it booted it up with no problems.

"destructive and unresponsive"

December 29, 2011  |  By jeramypompa

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 3.5

Pros

I couldn't find anything good about this software

Cons

corrupted hard drive, deleted necessary program files, didn't back up anything, did't clone anything, just destroyed two good hard drive

Summary

I would have to say any one running an older system like Windows XP shouldn't attempt to try this product. while attempting to clone my hard drive to another one, the program became non-responsive, I waited for about 20 minutes for it to respond, then I was forced to end it's process, which then left my formatted hard drive in the RAW file format, which is no good for anything....

"Horrible Experience"

December 21, 2011  |  By larrytate1

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 3.5

Pros

What good is ease of use and good features if the product doesn't work.

Cons

I spent several hours backing up 100GB of video files direct to DVD with the intent of re-configuring my HD and then restoring the files. Good thing I tested the restore process first... because the restore process doesn't work. I followed all recommended procedures and work-arounds and the product will not restore from DVD. Google "Image File is incomplete or not found" and you will get a sense of the nightmare. None of the solutions presented by their tech support works and cause more hours of wasted time trying. Apparently you can pay for a solution however. Evil.

Summary

Do yourself a favor. Don't use this software.

"Must-have free hard disk cloning utility"

December 17, 2011  |  By BeguileMeNot

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 3.5

Pros

Clones your active partition to almost anything including external and portable hard drives quickly and easily even with explorer running. Incremental or differential backup of whatever you choose, on your schedule, is also included.

Cons

No option to clone without overwrite. Incremental or differential backup is no different than other programs.

Summary

This is a great peace of mind product. You can save every bit of data including Windows and your apps to another HD device so you can restore after a hard drive calamity.

Updated on Dec 17, 2011

Pro: Has many format options

"Nice for novice backupers, But won't build WinPE Disk"

December 16, 2011  |  By rgadawg

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 3.5

Pros

This is a very nice To Do Backup program for backing up, scheduling, incremental, files, etc.,

Cons

but I ran out of time after 2 hours trying to build the WinPE recovery disk for cloning, partition cloning and recovery. And enough posts were made about building this important component of any full disk recovery strategy that I wondered if it were programmed in, sorry. I'm a pretty good geek, but couldn't get the WinPE disk built. So, the catch is that the program is good enough for many people just to go buy the $39.oo version with an ISO for the WinPE Disk.

Summary

I found it far easier and faster (I stopped EASEUS ToDo Cloning at 2hr. 45 min. on an 300 GB Boot disk) to just go get the Free Western Digital (by Acronis) Boot disk cloning tool, at the WD site, not at the Acronis site, and clone in a little over 1 hr. to USB disk, the same disk will recover from USB. Acronis makes one for Segate also, but the WD one is newer.

I find I have to wait all the way until the WD Acronis boot disk is completely loaded and working before I plug in my 2 TB USB WD External, then a refresh finds and uses it like magic. That may be particular to my MOBO, BIOS.

"Not as good as Macrium Reflect"

December 11, 2011  |  By rod_george

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 3.5

Pros

Easy to install and uninstall. Intuitive user interface.

Cons

Complex procedure to create Windows PE Rescue CD (compared with Macrium Reflect procedure)

Summary

I use a USB Raid Array attached to a Belkin Network USB Hub. (This allows any PC on my network, both LAN and WiFi attached to use the array as if it were locally USB-connected).
I was using Todo Backup to create a backup image of the C: partition of my Windows 7 laptop. It started the backup, reported a connection error an hour into the procedure, and hung. I had to use Task Manager to cancel the program. After I restarted it, the log suggested that the backup had been successful. A verify of the backup image proved otherwise! I cannot trust this software.
