Just downloaded and installed this program today via GAOTD. However, the interface comes up with all the controls grayed out, and no disks visible in the Disk Map section. What am I missing here?

Anyone?

EASUS is good software. I've purchased this and other utilities when I was in a bind... PartitionMagic for Servers was too expensive... EASUS utilities did the job just like much more expensive software. Great giveaway - don't be afraid... GO FOR IT.

4tb as of oct 2009 "compatible with Apple's Time Machine and includes software and instructions for reformatting to Windows operating systems. The system [2tb+2tb RAID] supports Mac OS X 10.4.10+, 10.5.2+ Windows 2000/XP/Vista: The [SINGLE] 4TB version works with Windows Vista only because Windows XP does not support hard drives with capacities above 2TB."

ashraf page says: "(feature) Works on hard disks of upto 2 TB in size."
limited to only 2tb is a drawback from my pov. 2tb is current common size at retail. larger hdds must already exist.

gotd postware has often been broken, but maybe this will post: paragon (i think. about 2 months ago here) also partitions HFS+. caveat: i have still not tested that hfs due to lack of mac install disk.

{snip}“And there is no program that engrosses the storage device running.”{/snip}
I'm guessing it is a bad (mechanical) translation of the idea that no tool will work on (ie "engrosses" probably equates to "increase in size") the active partition.

Partitioning tools are one of those things you rarely use. Usually you only need one when you first get a new computer, new HD upgrade or have to re-install the OS.

************

Messing around with partitions is one of those GOTCHA tasks. If you, the computer, the HD or the software drop a bit, you could lose all of your files! So make sure you have GOOD backups (ie you have tested to verify it really works) on different media (external drive or CD/DVD). Better yet, have more than one backup available, just in case!

**************
My favorite use of partition tools is to reduce the size of the OS partition (ie C: drive in windows) and create a separate "DATA" drive where I store all of my personal files separated from the OS and applications. That way, when inevitably I have to re-install windows I don't have to worry about my data files.

http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/window-on-windows/?p=834 - this article gives step by step instructions on how to resize a Vista partition without damaging data.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/160849/move_your_data_to_a_safer_separate_partition_part_2_vista.html - This article provides instructions on how to relocate your data to separate partition. It also has a link to similar article for XP.
**************

Back in September I had to re-install Windoze. So I took the opportunity to repartition my drive. Since I didn't have anything to lose, I gave the partition tool bundled with Vista Business a try first. It did all of the basic stuff I needed to do, shrink 1 of 2 existing partitions, create new partitions in the free space. It was a pleasant surprise.

That being said, a dedicated tool like this one (especially since the price is right) is usually better, with more functionality. So if you don't have one of the freeware tools, it would a good time to grab this one and immediately create (one or more) bootable disks. They'll come in handy sooner or later, and if you have one it'll make you into a computer "hero" for someone.

If you want to compare this tool to freeware, here is a link to a recent article reviewing partitioning tools:

Just downloaded, installed and repartitioned my harddrive in less than a half-hour. Windows 7 own disk management software would not allow me to extend my partition into the unallocated space before my main partition but EASEUS did, without blinking.

FANTASTIC. Thanks very very much for solving this problem for me.

Kindest regards.

Downloaded, installed as an administrator, activated and I get the following message:
" Virtual Disk Service stopped working and was closed. A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available". Nothing happens after this.

Tried to reinstall the program several times and to restart my computer each time. Same thing. Anyone have an idea how to help this newbie? Thank you boys and gals.

Guday from New Zealand,

# 16 Can you install it over the old edition, re XP only

If the install path eg, C\Programs\Easeus V4.1.1 is different from your old version, or you make it different, when the installation wizard asks you where you want to install it, then you will end up with 2 of these programs installed. No problems with this. To find the install path of your old version, just hold the cursor over the icon in All Programs, or look in C\Program Files.

You can install over an old version, but I prefer to play safe, and uninstall first. To uninstall a program safely, always use Revo uninstaller, then you have to do a bit of servicing.

SERVICING XP - free proven safe tools

Novices : CCleaner, IOBit Advanced System Care, IOBit Smart Defrag, Revo Uninstaller, & Eraser, will provide the tools to keep XP well serviced ( clear out all the rubbish from the folders and registry ), and running nicely. Experts : JV16 Power Tools ( Payware ), is excellent value. Spending a few hours researching these will be very rewarding.

Mike.

Hi, thanks very much for all your technical advice, its much appreciated, especially with Paragon Total Defrag. As its so well written, I put a lot of it in the Computer Manual I am compiling, so don't be surprised if you see it quoted somewhere.

What is an IMHO, please remember that in technical writing, abbreviations need explanation, or the narrative is wasted.

Regards Bill3.

*** 2. System Requirements ***

The OS (operating system) for EASEUS Partition Master 4.1.1 Professional Edition requires Windows 2000 Professional sp4(not server),Windows XP,Windows Vista(32 bit/64 bit), Windows 7(32 bit/64 bit). And there is no program that engrosses the storage device running. To run EASEUS Partition Master, the user must have the administrator privilege.

"And there is no program that engrosses the storage device running."

Translation, please!

When I try to install this on Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit it keeps saying file is in use by another process and therefore cannot install.

Then the software activated part comes up and says its been activated without ever installing anything.

I do have the old version 3.5 given away from giveaway of the day. Any idea what I should do?

Easeus Partition Master looks fine, but keep in mind that altering partitions is the equivalent of brain surgery for a computer. If you have important data then back it up. Better yet create a full disk image first (there are a number of free imaging tools). Then if something goes wrong you can recover. It's not hard to avoid problems if you follow a backup strategy.

#15: "...GAOTD gave away a similar product from Paragon (Paragon Drive Back-up 9) which also provides a partition manager etc. Any opinions about which is better? I have been using the Paragon to create and manage partitions, and perform daily back-up and periodical HD copy."

Paragon has separate back-up & partition apps, though there is some feature overlap. If you don't have their Partition Mgr software, then EASEUS Partition Master is better than the limited partition capabilities in Paragon Drive Back-up. If you have the Paragon partition software, EASEUS is, well, different -- each has features that I like -- rather than one being better/worse IMHO... it's your choice whether you want to add an EASEUS app that does essentially the same things as Paragon Partition Mgr. I like having both for the times Paragon's software won't do exactly what I want, but that's me. ;-)

The separate, free EASEUS back-up, drive imaging app doesn't come close to Paragon's Drive Back-up. Acronis I think does [many will say it surpasses Paragon's], & the company that makes the hard drive(s) in your PC/laptop may have a free version [Seagate for example has their SeaTools & DiscWizard download &/or disc].

I use EASEUS Partition Master & Paragon's partition app & haven't had real problems with either. Paragon's interface might be a bit more attractive, and it tries to be a bit more helpful, which is IMHO a double-edged sword -- copy your system partition (or restore a backup image) to an external drive for example, & Paragon's app will change the way your PC boots so it uses that external drive. If that's not what you want, it's a pain to fix things -- that's why I keep & use EASEUS Partition Master in addition to Paragon's app... it works reliably and tends to just do what it's told. The most common, popular, & free alternative is the Linux boot disc with Gparted [gparted.sourceforge.net].

Some will consider EASEUS Partition Master a bit large at ~76 MB in 582 files, 43 sub-folders, but that includes the boot disc ISO in the app's bin subfolder. 5 files go into Windows folders. The interface is straightforward, & allows you to visually size partitions by dragging. Operations you want done are listed but not applied until to give the OK -- most will be performed during a reboot before Windows restarts. As Ashraf has noted: "...“extend NTFS partition without reboot” does not always work…"

If you have several USB sticks [or maybe flash memory cards & a USB reader] lying around [I don't] Paragon might have an edge with their ability to *burn* a disc image creating a bootable USB device. Paragon's built-in utility might even be able to use the EASEUS Partition Master included ISO.

No matter how you do it, working with partitions can be risky -- even if everything works perfectly, the briefest power outage at the wrong moment could lose years of work & data -- so please back up your drives/partitions 1st... EASEUS has free drive imaging software if you need it. With Vista & 7 it's easier than earlier versions of Windows for the Master Boot Record [MBR] to get screwed up, so make sure that's backed up too [Paragon backup apps will let you make an image of the MBR separately].

#12 (k1): I had the same problem. After a reboot, Partition Master installed just fine (Vista Home Premium 32-bit).

#16 (just passing by): Partition Master recognized the earlier version on my computer and offered to uninstall it first (required), then installed itself smoothly.

I hope this is helpful.

#6: "Tools built in Windows 7 will do the same this tool does."

Think that's backwards -- Paragon's partitioning app & Easeus Partition Master will do what Windows can & more with greater flexibility & ease of use.

"I requested it to shrink my recovery partition and increase system one and all it did – made both partitions unformatted. All attempts to recover data failed. Had to contact laptop vendor and request Recovery DVD drive for reloading my OS."

Sorry you had problems, but for years now it's been necessary for laptop users to research how to modify those *special* partitions for their specific brand/model. It's also a reminder to always create a backup disk image before you make any partition changes.

When I tried to convert a brand-new Mac-formatted external 2GB HD to NTFS using Easeus Professional 4 (GAOTD) it didn't allow me to. Neither did Paragon 9.5 Professional (GAOTD). My not-so recent - but paid-for - Acronis Disk Director 10 finally did the job.

Good morning,
Can anyone tell me if it's worth going to the business software? I use the home now and it works wonderful. Should I just realize "if it ain't broken, don't fix it"? By the way, GOTD, if I have never thanked you for this tremendous service, I thank you now.

@5: Y'know, I see this kind of comment often for various products, and I've even agreed with it in the past. Then I stopped to think and try to reconcile the two statements, and found that doing so is fairly simple.

You get software from GotD, and you use it strictly for personal use. If during your strictly personal use evaluation, you realize that it would be very useful to you in a business use scenario, then you BUY IT FOR BUSINESS USE.

Where's the disconnect?

Dual-Boot Drives: This is magnificent clone software for copying dual-boot Vista-WinXP drives. It produces the clone RAPIDLY, and can easily resize the target partitions during the clone process. It works when Norton Ghost and others cannot - a miracle program.

Like #4 I too once used Partition Magic. When I encounter trouble and contacted Partition Magic user support, their advice update the software. I asked them update will solve current problem I have? No reply from them after all. They still send me AD to buy their program, but I know better now.

This new EASEUS Partition Master 4.1.1 Professional Edition looks good, and it surely could take the space of my HDD. Move away Partition Magic, make away to EASEUS Partition Master 4.1.1 Professional Edition! Thank you GAOTD. Perfect timing!

Interface - is it stolen from Partition Magic or Disk Director? Reminds me of Paragon Partition Manager.
To those who use partitioning tools - be extremely careful with partitioning. It is potentially dangerous operation and often leaves you with no OS and no data. And tool vendor never feels responsible for what its small bomb does. Backup before using it.

The bootable backup disc makes me a lot happier trying this.

Last time I used any partition software (OK, I haven't used XP's built-in facilities yet) that wasn't partition magic I got a 500 gig drive with flakey partitions, and am just recovering from the ensuing ka-thump.

That said, this looks like a good tool to add to the arsenal, my copy of partition magic is getting rather long in the tooth, alas...

dealing with hardware raid controllers has been a bloody nightmare before, so I'll give it a whirl.

minimum size disk is 2 gb? my, how times have changed. I still have a system with a pair of 40 meg drives... and a good half-dozen perfectly good drives under 2 gigs...

The Good
* Has the typical partition management tools (resize, format, delete).
* You can change the letter and name of a partition.
* You can copy a whole hard drive or partition.
* Supports RAID.
* Works on hard disks of upto 2 TB in size.
* You can hide/unhide partitions.
* Has some "error checking" features.
* You can password protect the program.
* Copy dynamic disk feature.
* You can create a bootable disk.

The Bad
* The new "extend NTFS partition without reboot" does not always work... it asks for reboot sometimes.
* Only supports Windows based partition formats (FAT, FAT32, NTFS) - no Linux or Mac.
* The program window always opens up fully maximized.
