    "Caused Significant Problems"

    October 25, 2012  |   By writerguyfl

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    None that I can see.

    Cons

    All I wanted to do was clone my hard drive. I attempted this five times. Somewhere between 6 and 8 hours in, the software would freeze. Each and every time.

    Now, my external drive is an expensive paperweight because Easeus Todo wiped it clean. (Yes, I know I can fix this problem. But, it's a huge hassle that wouldn't be necessary if this software worked as promised.)

    "Waste of time"

    October 25, 2012  |   By Doug Hazlewood

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    Did not work.

    Cons

    I finally gave up on this program and researched some others. I was hoping to avoid having to burn a disc or discs since I was temporarily hooked up via the DVD connectors (as it recommended). I found a detailed how-to video on YouTube about Macrium Reflect Free.

    I gave it a shot and once it started the new hard drive also stopped appearing on 'Computer.' But, it was not writing to the old drive, so I let it keep going. Looks like it did the trick. I don't know why THIS kept writing to the wrong drive or 'losing' it.

    MRF software was also faster.

    It cloned my drive and it booted to it after I removed the old one.

    Here's that video:

    I was glad to find such a detailed explanation and I guess I didn't have anything hooked up wrong (but, don't hold me to that).

    Summary

    OK, I made sure to double-check the second attempt after mistakenly cloning to my external hard drive (AAAGGHHH!!!). It was supposed to be cloning to the new drive (it even identified it by Model # and name). After 4 hours I thought the progress seemed stuck.

    I was getting a message that the HP Recovery 'drive' (on the original one) was getting full. For some reason it was cloning into it. It did not mess up the main part of the original drive (that partition). When I looked at "Computer" that new drive was not showing up!!!

    I had initialized and formatted it. To boot up I had to disconnect that drive and after reconnecting it won't show up. I connected it a different way and had to use Disk Management again (and after each failed attempt)!

    I did not touch anything after I started cloning. I had it connected the same way for Reflect Free and it worked.

    Pros

    well set out and works well

    Cons

    Does not work at all, if the disk being backed up is is bigger than the detsination file, no matter the coompression. A game changer for me

    "It does not work!!!"

    October 14, 2012  |   By adamkade1

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    works as long as you don't need to re-install your windows.

    Cons

    Doesn't recover files after windows reinstall

    Summary

    I backed up a lot of files, of near enough every kind. Thought: wait what if the program doesn't work. Then recovered, the most important files. This worked, and I thought: Oh yea, this program is great. Two months later, I picked up virus on computer and needed to reinstall windows. Reinstalled, then tried to recover my files. It says after I "recovered" them that recovery was complete. Checked files, and they weren't there. Tried fifteen times, all with the same result. Looks like I need to get hold of a working back up program.

    "A valuable product for any user."

    October 4, 2012  |   By kusmo

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    Easy to use. Many useful tools.

    Cons

    Nothing as yet.

    Summary

    Backup works well. Haven't had to restore yet.
    ClONE DISK works extremely well. Upgraded C: drive from 20gB to 2TB Seagate without a hitch. Online instructions reasonably clear. All programs that I have used since cloning have worked flawlessly so far. A must have product. Thank you Easeus for the fine product.

    "Cloned old 60GB SSD to new 120GB SSD, booted!"

    September 28, 2012  |   By GrokMyWorld

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    This program is awesome. I was deciding between three programs to try. What I needed to do was clone my old 60GB G.Skill Phoenix Pro SSD with Windows 7 running on it to my new 120GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD, and make it so it was an exact clone, except the new drive was 2x as big. I downloaded this program, installed it, ran it after connecting my new drive to an available SATA port, and used the clone feature on the program (FREE!), it cloned the drive in less than 13 minutes, I swapped the drives and it booted to Windows 7, and everything was as before on my old drive- all my old files, settings, everything. Only thing was that after being up for a minute Windows had to reboot to allow new update to take place (probably bc windows realized it was a new drive).

    Cons

    There are no cons.

    Summary

    See "Pros"

    "Backup OK System Image Useless"

    September 24, 2012  |   By markjenk

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    The interface is not bad and it seems to do an OK job of file backups.

    Cons

    The system save/image just does not work. I am setting up several used laptops and I wanted to essentially clone one with a system image and restore that to the others. I hosed up several DVDs including a couple of double layer ones trying to make this work and it just doesn't. Some of the DVDs ended up emtpy, and even when I finally did get a set that looked good the emergency restore CD I had ToDo creat said the image was incomplete because when ToDo created the image it broke the image into several files and didn't seem to be able to recognize that fact.
