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.

"Very buggy piece of software"

February 04, 2012  |  By AmyHarper

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 4.0

Pros

Easy to use interface
Freeware

Cons

Very buggy, lots of crashes
Small functionality

Summary

After using Easus Todo Backup for awhile I decided to search for an alternative software. The software crashed so often and I had problems with restoring files (backup file was corrupt).

Technical customer service did never reply to my e-mails... Okay, it's a freeware, but restore should work anyway!

"Good backup program, but incremental a problem"

January 31, 2012  |  By kim195

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 4.0

Pros

No problems in backing up required files onto USB sticks, then putting them somewhere safe until the next backup date, when existing backed up files are wiped by me from the USB's and the backup procedure started again.

Cons

In order to save time, I tried to use the incremental backup facility, but had problems. The help file wasn't very helpful (!) as it seemed to have been written in another language and badly translated.
http://www.todo-backup.com/products/features/incremental-backup.htm

Summary

For imbecile-class PC owners such as myself, a redesign of the incremental backup part of the program would be appreciated.

"Excellent program, finds more than built-in uninstaller"

January 26, 2012  |  By cjanos

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 4.0

Pros

Easy to use, seems to be very thorough.

Cons

During un-install process it asks questions about deleting some files. I have no idea how to check if some of those files needed for anything else. I always agree but I wish it never asked.

Summary

Excellent program. Good to have it.

"Once flawless, but sadly this is no longer the case."

January 26, 2012  |  By SouthlandHB

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 4.0

Pros

FREE, simple to use backup program.

Cons

Unstable and very buggy compared to previous versions that were amazing. Previous interface was slightly better.

A clean install on a clean system did not fix 4.0 issues.

Summary

Previously, this was hands down the best backup program I have ever used,and it's free- it just doesn't get any better than that.

However,this version stinks. 4.0 hangs constantly, gets stuck restoring files midway, and is extremely slow. I've completely uninstalled and done a clean install to no avail- it just doesn't work well at all.

I've had a files only restore going for 24 hours- at this moment it says 2 seconds left and it's said that for over 3 hours. I've become so frustrated I had to come here and let others know- if you have the previous version, and it's working fine, save yourself some heartache and don't upgrade till they fix the 4.0 version.

Whoever greenlighted this 4.0 should be taken to task for a very poor decision. It's ruined my confidence in this program/company.

If you are curious, I'm running Windows 7 64 bit with all the latest updates. I recently wiped my drive and felt like starting 2012 with a squeeky clean system- boy do I currently regret that move- good thing I have a fairly good sense of humor or I'd be crying. :)

"Worst piece of software I have ever used!"

January 22, 2012  |  By MDJDCarter

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 4.0

Pros

None. Never installed properly.

Cons

I read a lot of positive reviews, but when I tried to install, it got lost every time loading a driver for the hardware. It should never have had to load a driver. When it then gets stuck loading this phantom driver, the system slows to almost stopped. Closing firewall and turning off Norton did not help. Tried their special "removal tool." That was useless as was their Uninstall. I had to find one of these ultra clean up/removal programs to get this crap off of my system. Never did install properly; never did run. It was nothing but a time wasting headache.

Summary

Stay away from this program. I have found that when software like this has a special "removal tool," then it will be nothing but a pain to deal with.

"very good software. improves upon 3.0"

January 18, 2012  |  By matthewestell

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 4.0

Pros

can resize partitions and copy onto partitions smaller than source.
4.0 boot disk works better than 3.0.
can copy onto dissimilar hardware.

Cons

it won't make me a sandwich

Summary

This is very good software for creating images and cloning disks or partitions. It can even copy an image onto a partition that is smaller than the source partition. Macrium can't do that. It can even copy onto dissimilar hardware.

I work a lot with old Dell Dimension 2400's and Optiplex 170L's, the 3.0 boot disks didn't work on them (video flakes out) but the 4.0 WinPE version does.

"Simple and Easy to Use"

January 17, 2012  |  By SweetOzarksGirl

 |  Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 4.0

Pros

Windows Backup kept running into the VSS error that no one seems to have a solution for. Best advice I read in the Microsoft forums is to go find a 3rd-party program, which is what I did. I chose EaseUS because it had the best ratings and most downloads.

It's simple and easy to use. I like that it offers a disk clone option. Makes it nice to know I have a total copy of my laptop on my external hard drive.

I found the Help website to be easy to read and understand. I don't need a bunch of gobbledy-****. Just say it straight and clear and that's what EaseUS Help Documents do.

Cons

I haven't encountered any. It downloaded and the wizard was easy to follow. Any questions were answered quickly in the Help docs. There's no errors when backing up. What more can you want?

Summary

Makes me want to give the company money when they make a good product, so if it works over the years, I might just upgrade for $29.95.
