    "Free product continues to lose features - still usable"

    May 17, 2012  |   By JEfromCanada

    Pros

    It's free
    It does what it is intended to do quite well
    Excellent community-based support forum
    Support for newer devices is being added regularly (e.g. USB 3.0)

    Cons

    Features have been steadily removed since version 4.0.0.2
    Company support for free product was discontinued with v4.x
    No support for differential backups
    No ability to create a WinPE bootable CD

    Summary

    The last full-featured free version was 4.0.0.2, and if you don't require the added hardware support in subsequent versions, you'll get the most use from it (if you can find it).

    However, there are some nice new features in version 4.5. My favorite is the ability to convert a one-off backup plan to an ongoing scheduled backup.

    By removing certain key features (ability to do differential backups, ability to create bootable WinPE disc, etc.) from their free product, EaseUS is hoping users will convert to their (reasonably priced) paid product. Unfortunately, they update their product so frequently that some users have found the upgrade costs to keep current are too high.

    If your needs can be met with their free product, it's definitely worth using. I would advise users to be careful when deciding to update their free versions, because key features have been removed from the last two updates (version 4.0.0.5 and 4.5).
