    "Good-looking RUBBISH."

    August 23, 2012  |   By laocoon101

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    It looks good. However...

    Cons

    It would NOT clone Vista to a new 1tb Samsung external hard drive because it was "dynamic" - for that I had to get the paid version!

    In a nutshell, if you have a modern external 2.5 inch dynamic drive forget this one, as it will not work! Of course it does not tell you this until you try to use it.

    Summary

    A complete waste of time.

    "Data recovery is a problem"

    August 22, 2012  |   By pandra

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    Easy to set up. Scheduled back-ups are done.

    Cons

    Data recovery is difficult.

    Summary

    This is a bummer. I've been quite happily backing up my disk with Easeus Todo Backup Free. I just found the need to recover a file. Apparently with the free version, you can recover only the entire disk, not just the file. What you need to do, apparently, is back up each file separately. If so, what's the point of a backup program? And the recovery wipes out everything else on the disk that you're recovering to, so to avoid reverting ALL your data files to your last backup point, you have to have a separate disk just for data recovery.

    Updated on Aug 23, 2012

    After going to a great deal of trouble to restore the damaged file, I read comparative reviews of backup programs, one of which explained how to recover a single file (use Windows Explorer). This was not even hinted at in the how-to tutorials for Easeus, perhaps because you don't use the program for the recovery.

    "Won't work"

    August 21, 2012  |   By jayjay8382

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    None to add

    Cons

    Will not back up to networked drive. Keeps saying not enough space, however plenty of space available. Ability to choose files is tedious and anoying.

    Summary

    Synback works, but old and outdated. I want a replacement but cannot find anything satisfactory.

    "Upgraded Garbage"

    August 17, 2012  |   By CrankyPaulie

    Version: Easeus Todo Backup Free 5.0

    Pros

    As good as 4.5

    Cons

    As good as 4.5

    Summary

    Gotta be kidding on this one - 4.5 did everything that 5 does, but well, that was not much of anything. No clue why CNET thinks so highly of this garbage product - I even paid for the alleged upgrades. Repeated contacts with their non English speaking tech no-support usually involves their repeatedly telling me that what I want for backups is not what my company really needs. This is the absolute worst product and support that I have ever experienced in my FIFTY plus years in the computer business. Signed, Paul Allen (no really).

    Pros

    Seems to work fine. Installed in seconds. Ran a backup in a few minutes that used to take an hour.

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about.
