I really wanted to use this; however, it would not activate due to an internet problem. The internet problem was resolved today but now it is too late so I had to remove it.

I wish we had 48 hours to install.

During installation of this version, you will be asked if you wish to uninstall a previous version if you have one. You have to say yes to proceed. This version is then installed as a registered version. No other action is needed for registration, and the About section won't show whether or not it is registered - but it is.

Very VEEY Nice Guy's! This is Just what I needed, and when I needed it! Everything in the download worked perfect and I was even able to make a bootable partition in my 15 Gig USB Memory stick and it boots and works perfect. EASEUS Partition Master even saw a hard drive I took out of my kids PC and I was able to Fix the partition and reload the drive, Put it back in the PC it came from and it working great again! I'm Sold. I am and old Paragon user but Easeus PM is changing my mind Very fast! (O: and you can't beat the price!
I'm running an old P-4 Gigabyte MB with Intel 3.4 GHz CPU, 4 gigs RAM, 2 XFX GeForce 8600 GT's with 512 Meg RAM each and 2 180 Gig HD's and one external 1 TB USB Drive and EASEUS manages it too with out any problems, 2 Sony DVD Burners and I am Running Windows XP Pro 32bit and a hole host of Video and Photo software and for storing Photos and Movies while I edit them and before they get burnt to disk I have a lot of data at risk and Now EASEUS backs up my working Directories every day.
Thank SO Much for this Very useful Software application I will be telling everyone I know to try it out! (O:
Thank You, Rick.

Would not install for me on XP SP3. Something about unable to rename a file, windows\system32\epmntdrv.sys error 5.

After aborting install I inspected system32 and that file did not exist.

I think this may have happened on the last Easeus Partition software giveaway as well.

This all looks good, and have used this and Paragon lightly in the past. But hit a stumbling block here. Just wanted to divide my main drive (partition) on my new laptop into two, one for data, one for all the other crap. So I re-sized my main partition (C:) freeing up some space. But now even though I have "unallocated" space on my disk, when I choose that unallocated space Easeus doesn't allow me to choose "Create Partition" or "label" to create a partition out of the unallocated space (despite what my reading of the help file says it should do). This seems really basic - am I just doing something really stupid or lack some basic understanding, or is this software a little funky?

Downloading and installing in XP SP3 no problem. Activation was automatic. I did NOT uninstall EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard 5.0.1 (previous GOTD) and it is still there.

I am not clear why v6 does not refer to data recovery. Is this something else or has just the name changed?

V5 worked for a test recovery of an SD card. I have not tested v6 in any way yet.

Hello, people!
Any ideas on how can I create another partition on a notebook (LG r480)?
The farthest I've got was getting a mention on "not being able to handle basic disks" from Paragon or other. Web search is not helping.

Regarding this tool's performance, it was one of the few to correctly boot and show the partitions (LG_Recovery, Recovery, 2x NTFS), even creating non-partitioned space out of free space - but unable to CREATE one out of it.
Please help. Any ideas are welcome.
Thank you, GaD and EASEUS!

#30: "...using windows 2003 version of defragmenter..."

Far as I know most all defrag software uses the Windows api, differing mainly in the bells & whistles added, like various "optimization strategies", i.e. what goes to the front of the disk. If/when it takes longer, 1) there's more moving of files/folders, &/or 2) it's set to verify every bit of data once it's moved... comparing data at new & old locations is super safe, but *Extremely* time consuming.

"...it wouldn’t recognize my LG Lightscribe DVD burner..."

This has been reported in the past... simply use your choice of burning software to put the included ISO file on a CD.


"For those who want to re-install later, merely keep your main program folder,..."

5 files are also installed to Windows system folder [not just copied], & they're necessary to make Partition Master work.

* * *

#32: "My problem with previous versions, including Paragon, is I dual-boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu, and neither will see the Linux partition. Does this PRO edition work under Linux?"

The EASEUS site has a *LOT* of info, with examples etc covering Windows/*nix systems... check out their FAQs, articles, forums, & if all else fails, email them with your exact questions, bearing in mind of course that this is a GOTD. ;-)

* * *

#35: "Will this work on an Raid array???"

[http://www.partition-tool.com/professional.htm] -> "Support all hardware RAID."

* * *

#41: "... BUT when I did a plain and simple disk-to-disk copy (500GB)from the CD utility disk it took almost 2 hours..."

Physically the only things that make a difference are drive/bus speed, but the OS you're working in can make a huge difference. Booting to an Acronis app/disc, things happen pretty fast. Using the mini-*nix OSes on Paragon, EASEUS etc CDs are rather slow. Using a full *nix LiveCD can be faster. Booting to a LiveXP disc/device [boot-land.net] should be as fast as working in Windows. Oversimplified it's why tech went from 8 to 16 to 32, & now 64 bits.

"...Despite that I followed every instruction stated in the program (power down, reboot etc.) my ‘new’ HD wasn’t able to reboot correctly."

Your PC/laptop can have *1* boot hard drive at any given time, & at the beginning of this drive is all the critical boot info for every OS installed. Acronis & Paragon specialize in making this transition, old to new for you, but can be a PITA if you want to clone yet still keep the original -- something I've always preferred EASEUS for. Otherwise Microsoft builds into Windows a couple of tools/methods for fixing things when that sort of stuff happens -- Google/Bing fixboot, fix MBR, fdisk MBR for example. For multi-boot systems EasyBCD from Neosmart can be a big help. Backing up the 1st track of the boot disk is a must if you want to save time/trouble.

I love Easeus software. I wish some Linux guru would tell me Not to use ReiserFS (any geek with the coder's history Must be cool...) Often, it seems I'm "out on a technology limb", but rational things seem to take Forever to catch on. This Gateway dual core (don't laugh, it was cheap - runs Win7 64, 4gig RAM, 500 Gig disk) is intended to also run Linux Mint, and OSX Snow Leopard. Though I also like Paragon, the System Backup software I got through a dotTech offer (still there if you want it), can't seem to be fully removed and now I can't access my Linux. OSX install will be last, and yes, they say it can be done.

Most people should probably get this GOTD (assuming you have a compatible OS & 75MB of disk space to spare), whether you want/need to do partitioning or not, since the included partition recovery may save the day in the future. Yeah, it's there in the free version too, but if you have the space why not get the pro version from GOTD while you can? Otherwise EASEUS Partition Master Pro is easier to use than the free Gparted on Linux LiveCD ISOs you can download & burn to disc, & it's useful as a companion to the Paragon tools that have been on GOTD in the past... as you'll read in the EASEUS help docs/manuals, there are many situations/tasks where you can make a system un-bootable moving/copying partitions around -- Paragon software tends to step in & *fix* those issues for you, whether you want them to or not, EASEUS doesn't, often making it a better choice when you want to keep the system booting just like it is now on the drives/partitions it uses now. While there is [IMHO] a fairly obvious language barrier [along the lines of assuming you're more knowledgeable rather than less], EASEUS has a very large amount of info, instructions etc available on their site, including topics on Windows built-in disk management, along with active forums where they do respond to posts, while the Partition Master help file & pdf manual [included in setup] both start out with partitioning basics. If you do go to their site, some may find their free, 136 page e-book on Data Recovery useful [http://www.easeus.com/download.htm#ebook].

For all that data & info, I didn't see a comparison chart showing why you should update/upgrade if you already have Partition Master 5.5 [earlier on GOTD] already -- the closest I found was the slightly more complete feature list here: [http://www.partition-tool.com/easeus-partition-manager/]. Uninstalling old versions prior to installing the new leaves the old program folder in place containing a log file -- something you'll probably want to delete, though it won't cause any harm if you don't. The ISO file you can burn to create a bootable CD is in the ... \EASEUS\EASEUS Partition Master 6.0.1 Professional Edition\bin\ folder -- some don't like or have problems creating/burning the bootable rescue disc with Partition Master. The app itself takes up about 75MB as mentioned earlier [including that 30MB ISO you can delete once you burn], in 618 files, 48 folders, & adds 5 files to Windows' system folder.

You partition drives [i.e. hard drives + devices that mimic hard drives like USB sticks] for essentially the same reasons you create &/or use folders -- to organize files/data. A *usable* hard drive has at least one partition, & each partition is allotted or given some percentage of the total available space on the drive -- drive space that isn't *owned* by a partition may be called un-allocated [this is an important concept, since many operations will only work or proceed if the target disk space *isn't* already owned by an existing partition]. The most important thing about working with partitions on a working, Windows PC/laptop, is to backup & know how to restore, *including* backing up the 1st track of the boot drive called the MBR [Master Boot Record]... with a multi-boot system MBR backup is even more important.

Working with partitions usually involves re-sizing them [adding/subtracting drive space they *own*], adding a partition *after* you've made room by shrinking an existing partition, or removing a partition you no longer need, followed by growing an existing partition so you can use all available drive space. Windows 7 has made virtual hard drives more popular, & they often need partitioning too... simplified, to shrink a virtual drive, even a dynamically sized one, you reduce the size of the partition, then as needed copy that partition to a new, smaller-sized virtual drive [often a Windows VHD]. [If/when you use Paragon's virtualization apps, this is important because the image you create from a Windows install will have the same disk space allotted as the original partition... besides being more efficient, a (usually much) smaller virtual drive may be the only way to get within the size limits for Microsoft's Virtual PC.]

Whether you're working with physical or virtual drives, + the data &/or operating systems installed on them, it helps to combine backup imaging & partitioning in your strategies, since they overlap so much. Copying a partition gives you the same results as restoring a disk image backup, except new partition & file tables are written [this is handy if/when either is messed up, like when/if you replace a failing drive where the NTFS file tables store locations of bad segments on the old drive]. But, while it's faster because you skip a step, when you copy you don't have the backup archive to rely on if you have problems, & it's more restrictive -- you need to have sufficient, un-allocated hard drive space Partition Master for example can use as a target. Creating/restoring a backup image can be more flexible, work in more situations. Both will (re)create partitions, & both can work better [or may only work] if the target space isn't part of a partition already. These two approaches do away with the traditionally *Iffy* part of working with partitions -- moving [not copying -- not restoring] data... the only data moving you might want [rather than need] to do is if/when you defrag the drive 1st, since condensing all files/folders to the beginning of the partition makes everything more efficient.

I just installed today's software (I did not have an older version) and all went well (Win 7 64x and win EP with dual boot). I'm wanting to shrink the unused allocated disk space from my XP partition and apply it to Win 7 partition. I'm not sure how to do that yet, but I'm sure I'll be able to once I read the instructions.

My main gripe is the program FONT look and SIZE. It really looks strange, and it's SMALL, looks like about 8pt. I'm wondering if there is a way to make the program font size bigger? And does the font look weird (and small) to anyone else?

GOTD is the best!! i started visiting this site a few months ago and since then have replaced all my freeware with their pro versions!and found software i had no idea existed.
all comments are helpful in making a decision about the software,but if you havent tried the software dont give it a thumbs down,some people rely on others ratings to peek their interest.
there are a couple of people on here who give great reviews.they take the time to use,try and rate to software for the day. THANKS!i never had any problems with software from GOTD, no bugs, nothing.easy registration EVERY time.
thanks for this one today,it will come in handy to make a extra drive(keep kids off mine).like i said my kids use my system so the bootable disc maker will come in useful some day..... i'll put money on that one.once again thanks GOTD.

I had a bad experience with EASEUS on my HP Pavilion back in April. The fifth try with EASEUS was scary - Windows 7 couldn't recover and I had to restore from Acronis drive image (fortunately I make an image every night). I had to ask for a refund. Support tried to help but ended up giving me the refund.

I hadn't realized there was a built in Windows 7 utility. I tried it instead and it worked fine.

The EASEUS menus reacts much faster than Paragon - as stated several times here - BUT when I did a plain and simple disk-to-disk copy (500GB)from the CD utility disk it took almost 2 hours (!) on my quad-CPU 2,5GHz PC.
NO relocations, NO partion resize, NO HD size difference - just a simple, no-nonsence disk-to-disk copy :-(

Even worse:
Despite that I followed every instruction stated in the program (power down, reboot etc.) my 'new' HD wasn't able to reboot correctly.

Had to use PARAGON to create a useful, bootable HD backup !

Installed as portable using ThinApp on Win 7 x64. Everything seems good.

I had the previous release 5.5 from the last giveaway. During installation of version 6.1 it uninstalls the previous version (with the user's permission). Naturally, since I had 5.5 already you know that I like this application. It is easy to use, fast and safe.

As with the above recommendation to the developer, I would second the comment that the ability to merge partitions would make this software 'perfect', IMHO.

I highly recommend this software to all...

I've been using Easeus partitions tools occasionally for years. About 1 month ago I bought a new HD, so I used version 5.0.1 "Disk Copy Wizard" to migrate from my old drive, to the new one. Worked flawlessly. However, about 2 weeks ago I wanted to do the same thing on a different machine, and I decided to try version 5.5.1. The interface looked the same, however I had some trouble adjusting the new partitions sizes (version 5.0.1 let me resize things as long as they fit). I finally decided to let the Wizard do what it wanted, then I would adjust things later, and let the copy proceed. 2 hours later, it finished, and I rebooted. Couldn't boot off the new drive. Then I noticed some of the partition status flags didn't match ("system" vs "boot"). Tried to fix that, but couldn't. Messed around with everything I could think of, no go. Finally, gave up, installed 5.0.1, and repeated the entire process. Worked fine :)
I hope this version fixed those problems, but I'll be keeping my 5.0.1 until I can confirm that!

While some features are good, simple things are a problem--like using windows 2003 version of defragmenter (that goes into the "you gotta be kiddin me" files). I tried to defrag a 15 gig test partition, and stopped it after 15 minutes. There was no progress indicator or anything to let you know how far along it was, just a small window with text saying it was defragging. I could see the HD light flashing away, so I knew it was working. Another issue--I thought I'd make a bootable disk. Too bad it wouldn't recognize my LG Lightscribe DVD burner. It said to choose a drive to create a bootable disk, and all I got was an empty window. This was on an XPx64 system, and yes, it installed and activated easily. For those who want to re-install later, merely keep your main program folder, and re-create the shortcut when the time comes. But, since it uses ancient defrag technology, and wouldn't find my flavor of burner, I'll have to pass on this one.

Paragon and Easus look similar in design, but I really like a few Easus tools better - like the move resize tool in the previous version giveaway. I fixed a partition that I outgrew that Paragon couldn't.

Paragon has a multi-OS boot loader, and I've used it - doesn't look like this one does.

Don't see any reason why you wouldn't want both though, and both companies have quallity products !

Thanks GAOTD.

@ users of previopus editions:
I have version 5.0.1 (GAOTD Feb 6, 2010). Did a fantastic job whenever I needed it.

MY QUESTION: DOES THIS VERSION INSTALL ON TOP OF THE PREVIOUS ONE OR DOES ONE NEED TO UNINSTALL THE OLDER ONE FIRST? Or does it install alongside 5.0.1?

Having two versions is not really a necessity. Apart from seeing it as something to fall back on in case something went wrong with one version or the other, I see no advantages in keeping the older version.

Supposing however that one would want to have them both, would installing today's version in a different location than the default one do the job (e.g. by changeing the name of the destination folder during installation -appending the version number to the subfolder name). I suppose it might work even though both versions may use some common .dll's (or just because that's exactly what they do). If any problems would occur, my guess is that would be due to changes in the registry.

IMO it is an interresting problem to think over. Tricks like this have worked for other software in the past (but not always). I hesitate to try it myself here and now because my other machine (usually used for such experiments) is not available for some time and I wouldn't want to create too much of a mess. Creating a restorepoint may prevent complete disaster, but would it be enough?

Anyone any ideas on this?

BTW: XP Pro SP2 32b.

Thanks & greetz.
Patrick.

I just wanted to add, (because I'm a Easeus fan (sort-of) now, because it save my data when I had a MASSIVE DISK CRASH AND LOST EVERYTHING!!!!) But that recovery feature presented the whole file structure of the entire drive. You can select partition by partition to recover.

Of course I had to buy a new hard drive to replace what was lost and it copied it flawlessly, although I had to do some manual adjustments to the recovered drive because it copies recovered files to "1 ntfs" directory. But that's a piece of cake Just move every thing to the root directory or whatever.

I could even choose which folders or files I wanted to recover, so I did some disk "house cleaning" to boot.

Thanks GAOTD for this latest update.

#15 -- "Can this be used to change the amount of space allocated to already made partitions without formatting them?"

That's the whole point of these apps. You just shrink the size of drive -C- I think you said or increase the size of drive -D- by dragging the little slider and voila.

Also you must "apply" then changes after making them. The changes are "virtual" until you apply then.

This is a great program I have been using version 5.1 for sometime and just love it. I would like to tell you about another from the same company. That is totally free. It is a backup program that works great also. TOTALLY FREE. Check it out

For me (Windows XP on a nice dual core Toshiba Satellite), it was dramatically faster at nearly everything, even loading. It also seemed to process my requests with far fewer hurdles. For example, Paragon’s latest version won’t touch my 1tb external hard drive — it won’t format it, partition it, nothing. Easeus did it in a snap.

#6 -- "Do Windows 7 still need the partition tools, since Windows itself has partition utility?"

My answers to that is yes! When I first brought my computer running Win 7 x64 I tried using windows to change the partition size of the system partition where win7 sits. Windows disk manager could do it but with limitations. It could not repartition beyond some hidden and "unmovable" files like the "hiberfil.sys" AND "pagefile" among others. There are ways around this but they are tedious and annoying.

Today's offer and Paragon software does this automatically.

Also I wanted to create non primary partitions using windows disk manager -- IT ONLY CREATES PRIMARY PARTITIONS!, unless you use "diskpart" at the command prompt.I needed to make logical extended partitions with drives in them. My system came with the maximum of 4 primary partitions and windows disk manager would not allow me to make the necessary changes due to that. So either it was to delete some partition, remake it as logical then create the drives or...you get the picture.

Easeus came to the rescure by moving all the hidden files automatically and allowing me to create the kinds of partition structure I wanted. Paragon also does it automatically.

So you can do this in windows but only with the diskpart utility and that is a hastle.

Hope this helps. Besides it costs nothing, and if you need it it'll be there. I missed the last time it was offere and purchased the 5.0.1 version. I have no regrets
