The free version of Easeus Todo Backup ist much slower than the home version according to an Information at the beginning of installation-process.
The free versions of Macrium Reflect and of AOMEI Backupper are not slower than the unfree versions of these better backup-solutions.
Because of this very important negative behaviour I cannot recommend the Free version of Easeus Todo Backup.

After v5.5

about EaseUS ToDo BackUp · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful Report as spam

WAS a good product PRIOR to v6.
Now MEDIOCRE at best.
Because starting with v6 you can NO LONGER set the compression level for the backup.
So, NO LONGER a recommended item.

I installed yesterday on Windows 7 the version Free 11.5 and I can choose 4 compression levels for folders backup: none, normal, medium and high.

This is the best free program. And the best for most people. There are comments here that say about being slow, however, the backup has very acceptable speed for a 1TB PC* (it spends less than one night, so solves for any home user) and the restoration may take a little longer, after all, it will be rare you make her. This program has recovery CD, a way of booting it before windows which ensures integrity and being able to recover straight from the computer before windows boot, it has a beautiful program, a solid knowledge base, differential backup, incremental backup , full backup. I have no cons for a free application, including, since you have read so far, easeus data recovery is also very good because it recovers files deleted by accident or formatting and maintains the folder structure, only it gets paid.

EaseUS Todo Backup free version does get the job done, is reasonably simple to setup, and seems above average for reliability. Using it for incremental backups, once the first run is complete, subsequent backups are done fairly fast. I set the performance to low to minimize impact on work being done during the backup. My backups go to an external HD plugged into a USB port.

Overall I find the setup to be straightforward, but what is top priority for me is reliability. I've had trouble with Microsoft's "File History" as well as the software bundled with portable external; hard drives from the major brands. EaseUS todo has simply been more reliable than the other options I've used.

Lastly, I would prefer an open source option for simple backups to external hard drives but have had trouble finding a reliable option. Duplicati looks promising, but I encounter too many errors. For now I'll use the Freemium version of EaseUS.

These companies that have rock solid backup solutions that they sold as perpetual licensing for many years, are now showing something like a fake subscription cost because they now want yearly payments ??! WTF ? I'll explain a bit.. too many companies are following this greed route..changing nothing but their pricing.

  • Windows10 changes alot because Satya hired hacks.
    That means you probably will need to ensure the software works after every update (which is weekly..(yeah F U MS! so tired of Satya's shit show breaking my computers.)..
    but for EASUS to expect to get full price every year for what will amount to small fixes in the grand scheme of win10 changes..means this is basically a solid business that now enjoys the taste of veiling themselves as honest but they prefer scam as the internal term I am almost sure of it.

Let's not forget this is a $30 per computer cost. If you have a family, they want to trick you into paying $120(4 computers) each year .. which is mind bending insane.

They don't stipulate the reason in the site(on the page) for the YEARLY cost NOR do they specify what the "1 year" actually means..
? Is it 1 year of updates ? ? or is it truly $30 a year like a badly planned greedy SAAS fee since there is nothing for them to do further besides make workarounds for whatever Satya's cheap labor force breaks..ahem I meant creates in win10.

So tired of this new FAUX-SAAS thing. YOU DON'T NEED FULL PRICE EVERY YEAR YOU ASSCLOWNS!
'they obviously hide that as so the gullible simply pay them $30 every year for what amounts to nothing new besides their taste for greed.

My review for the paid subscription (Home 10.6): well-made but incredibly self-serving and on-high-horse-sitting.

I changed a few hardware pieces inside of my PC:

  • Windows' reaction: "Let me check... checking... okay, fair enough, I allow this."
  • EaseUS ToDo BackUp Home's reaction: "Oh no! You're trying to trick me, you filthy subscription user! Please contact support about it."

Contact support? We all know how customer support works in the present times: "We understand your concern. Here, have a copy-paste from our FAQ that is completely unrelated to the question you asked."

Conclusion:
Got subscription from Humble Bundle. Was considering to renew it. Not considering anymore! Don't give your money to software developers who think you exist for them, instead of that they exist for you.

Constant upsells and nagging. I understand devs need to eat, but the functionality of free edition is fairly limited too.

Version 8.5 saved the day when Samsung Migration tool couldn't

about EaseUS ToDo BackUp · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Samsung's SSD migration tool didn't even recognize disk ID's properly, so I really couldn't trust it with my data and found this.

Hot-cloned an old Intel SSD to a fresh Samsung one and 10 minutes later swapped it into the old one's place and boom - everything just worked. Couldn't have asked for a better app for the job. Simple and intuitive. Weirdly, it's pretty large at 400 megs, but that's beside the point. I really didn't look into what else it can do, but I might later on :)
