I don't know if anybody's still around, but....

I was excited about this offer, but had an unpleasant experience last night. :-(

I already had the previous version installed. Based on several comments here, I assumed that it would be uninstalled when I installed 9.1. It wasn't! I was able to successfully install 9.1, but now I had two versions installed. So I went ahead and uninstalled the old version, but now 9.1 wouldn't work and I was prompted to reinstall. I did so, but now I experienced the same symptom as #67 R Howells. I tried reinstalling several times, disabling my firewall, but the offer ended before I was able to get it working. Guess I should have stuck with the version I had installed already...now I'm going to have to drop down to the free version.

So beware! It might be a good idea to uninstall an existing version before installing the new one.

Winding up:

Disks can contain a maximum of four primary partitions.

WinPE requires a licence payment to Microsoft, so invariably omitted in giveaways.

That's a challenging home page, Mike-Macs..

This version does not include the bootable WinPE feature but has anybody tried and/or succeeded in creating a bootable CD with BartPE? If so, would you post the details.

Regarding the comment that Windows Vista and Seven have partition management note that while it is possible to expand/shrink partitions it is not possible to move them. To move partitions more sophisticated software such as EaseUS PM Pro is necessary.

First this...I get the best disc management software on the market for free and now I have won Todo Backup workstation 4 on Facebook!
This works out great. I just bought a new HDD that I wanted to partition so perfect it's timing.Now I can split my drive and install my backups with out having to worry about something going wrong.
I have used their free version for partitioning and am looking foward to using this new upgrade.Personally I have had no problems with the performance of Easeus's software and would suggest it to anybody to try.
Thank you Easeus and GOTD for all you have done.

Hi Folks

Comment by R Howells — January 11th, 2012 at 5:57 pm @ # 67 "I have tried to install this – and it first deleted my previous 8.01 version which I’d never had a problem with. However now all I get is the following: “Disk device not detected by EASEUS Partition Master, please reinstall the program and make sure you don’t forbid its driver installing or related registry writing in the Anti-virus program’s pop-up window.” I have disabled my antivirus and searched their forums for an answer but cannot find anything. Does anyone know how to get this to work – recognise my drives?"

-------------------------

You may have an Action-Blocking software in the way of Partition Master - ie Firewall OR Windows UAC - you need to set the permissions on any Firewalls etc. to allow FULL Access of the Drive to any parts of the Partition software.

You DON'T need to disable your AntiVirus BUT you will need to try stopping your Firewall / UAC etc. to allow the program to begin it's Drive Access.

IF you still can't get anywhere with it you can contact me @ XP.Pro@NTLworld.com & I'll try to work though it with you.

This goes for any other visitors here who need any help or assistance - I can be contacted on the above address & I'll reply when I get the time. You can also contact me through my Website !

I hope this has been helpful for some of you :o)

That's EaseUS own comparison page. The only major differences that I think the majority of home users might be interested in is that PRO version features:-
Resize volume (including system volume) on dynamic disk (Improved)
Manage partitions with WinPE bootable CD
Manage partitions with Linux bootable CD

Thank you GOTD - installed this on my Windows 7 PC and used it to change from 2 partitions on the HD to 3 (so nothing complicated). First time I've ever tried re-partitioning a drive and it was a very nervous time waiting for all the changes to be applied, wondering how on earth I'd be able to restore everything if it went pear-shaped, but it all worked fine.

Looking at the edition comparisons between the home (free) and professional (pay/gotd) edition, it seems to come down to two major differences.

First, the pro version includes the linux bootable disk. While they do indeed also sell a pro version with the WinPE edition, I imagine there's a licensing fee involved so they had to nix that idea.

Second, the pro version allows commercial use while the home (free) versions does not. Being this is a GotD giveaway that explicitly prohibits commercial use, this difference is rather moot.

So in truth, the only difference is the linux bootable repair CD of which there are a ton of free options available out there with a Google search.

So do what you will... I'm already a secondary linux user so I have no need of the difference. I also am already running 9.1 free edition so I don't see any need of this.

But if you're never tried EaseUS partition tools, do so. It was already installed on my system for a reason! :D

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you GOTD for this repeat-- I downloaded this program last time but did not get the key in time therefore never used it....And before I download it this time I have a couple of questions. #15...I am every appreciative of your knowledge and actually taking the time to write it all out...
QA…I recently received a 2TGs EHD, SeaGate because I am getting into IM and downloading many products....my computer which I've had for about 15 years has Windows 2003 XP Pro...lol (yes, it runs fine, just slow)...and we have another with Vista which has no room for downloads. (because my daughter installed all the packs of SIMS game..lol) ..I have been going back and forth between computers and seriously want to use the EHD as a third computer base…I wanted to partition the EHD and run Windows XP Pro 2007 on it?? Q Can I do this without major glitches?? … I’m thinking to partition it first like you previously mentioned and then I will install XP 2007 Pro, … Q Can I run it as a third computer? (like a laptop – but really it’s a EHD 2TGs Q Also, with each drive if I have 2TGs how much space do I give to the drives you mentioned. I will probably download music and movies to this EHD, or maybe just leave it for my IM products & docs.? Either way it would be nice to use the EHD properly, and be able to transfer it to whichever computer I want, or even to the TV to watch movies…

Also, I hate to be a pest, but since I’m here already…this 32bit and 64bit….what does that refer to…I know I should know this but I don’t…??
(As for trying it out on an older computer, I wouldn’t dare even take the chance…But, I did save a really, really old computer that doesn’t start up because I don’t have the floppy discs to reboot it and probably lost everything on it, though I do recall backing up the necessary except for Word Perfect which I liked using (I am currently using the harddrive tower as a plant shelf and the monitor has clips of positive affirmation quotes taped to it and the keyboard holds things like rulers, business cards and such, so I consider it of some use and never threw it out) lmao Anyways, do you think I could re-start this ‘first edition computer’, it’s a Patriot Pentium, and try it out on there?? It does have a CD slot.)

#12: "add an option “convert ntfs to fat32″"

That doesn't always work, which is why they probably didn't include it.

* * *

#26: "Does today’s Giveaway align new partitions? ... How important is this?"

I've not been able to find anything that says Partition Mgr. does this. AS far as importance goes, *from everything I've read* it's more a niche thing with certain drives when running XP, but real world I've run Paragon's tool & increased disk performance as a result on 2 PCs where, again from what I read it shouldn't have mattered.

* * *

#27: "For cloning Dual-Boot drives... recently, there have been problems. EaseUS Partition Master 9.00 created a clone in which the secondary system (WinXP) was not bootable (Vista bing the primary system). And, the process affected the Source Disk as well..."

Generally to clone a drive I've found something like the Acronis software Seagate, Western Digital etc. give away specifically for that purpose works best. I've also had a lot of success restoring partition image backups to a larger target drive one at a time -- restoring the image to unallocated space creates that partition. Partition Master however should have worked -- I'd suspect your problems might have been caused by your non-standard setup [if I'm reading your post correctly], as XP should be on the 1st partition, Vista on the 2nd, with Vista's boot mgr calling XP's boot loader when XP was selected from the boot menu. As someone else suggested, EasyBCD might be able to put things right, as far as booting goes.

* * *

#45: "... Totally scrambled my drive... Make sure you have a FULL BACKUP and all of your program keys..."

That's good advice, even if you aren't going to be doing something like working with partitions -- stuff happens, from drives failing to mal-ware destroying your drive's contents. A good, current disk/partition image backup lets you put things back exactly as it was, but your advice on keeping software keys available is also apt -- it's increasingly common for software to use a hardware ID in combination with the serial or key number to register whatever app [that's what Windows does]. If you have to replace a hard drive, restoring a backup puts the software back, but it will be unregistered if it relied on the old drive for all or part of the hardware ID.

EASEUS Partition Master Pro is a nice app -- today's v. 9.1 is a slight update, with the file "Main.exe" showing version 9.1, dated 9/13/11 vs. the version 9 I had installed with a date of 8/3/11. Installation 1st uninstalls the older version, though it left the old folder & a couple of files behind -- the version history is here: http://goo.gl/OxlTf . I think the biggest difference between Partition Master Pro & the Paragon apps that have been on GOTD is that the Paragon apps try to do more, having more, strictly speaking non-related features, as well as automatically adjusting your PC/laptop so it knows about &/or can boot from a new partition. Personally I don't always want that, & that's when I use EASEUS. Neither of the 2 brands of partition software include their WinPE disc ISOs when they're on GOTD, though as most every Paragon app can work portably, for them that's not a huge problem -- boot to whatever WinPE variant you've created & run whatever Paragon app portably. The problem with that approach is that it won't easily work when the app you want to run installs system files &/or drivers, so EASEUS Partition Master has to be installed, either to your running WinPE or when you're creating your WinPE image. That said, there's nothing actually wrong with the *nix boot discs/USB sticks EASEUS [or Paragon] can create, while their WinPE images are much more limited than those you can create yourself -- you're not limited to running one app in Windows, & if you're running WinPE you shouldn't be either.

IN a nutshell you use EASEUS Partition Master to create, copy, modify, & remove partitions on your hard drive(s). More partitions can keep things better organized, simplify backup & other maintenance [e.g. you need to backup data that changes -- stuff that stays the same, not so much], & keep stored files/folders separate -- that last is why/how you have more than one OS, e.g. more than one version of Windows on your PC/laptop. Win8 is supposed to allow something very similar to what's possible today with different types of RAID, e.g. a couple types of data mirroring, and joining separate drives so they appear as one. It's also supposed to borrow a concept from virtual disks [VHDs], Dynamic Expansion, where you assign a max size when the disk/partition is created, but only physically use what you need -- you could show 10 TB of drive space using a single 500 GB drive, & when you tried to exceed 500 GB worth of files/folders it would tell you to add more drives/partitions. I don't know how well that'll work in actual practice, &/or what the hot disk setup will be, nor do I know whether apps like Partition Master will become more important, or less. Leading up to win8 my guess would be more, with people wanting to try out the soon to be released win8 beta [especially once they realize it can be faster than win7 & you don't have to use Metro], &/or upgrading to new UEFI-based boards & GPT rather than MBR disks/partitions... hard drives are expected to remain expensive for a while, & it may be quite a while [if ever] before pricing reaches 2011 lows -- partitioning lets you use what you've already got.

Working with partitions can get complicated, but it's also something you can do successfully without a lot of learning or practice -- hard drives are divided up by partitions the same way your files are stored in & separated by different folders, the major difference being you have to decide how big any partition is going to be from the start, unlike a folder that can hold as much as you want up until the disk/partition is full. That's also why you need something like Partition Master to change a partition's size or add a new one. The analogy I like to use is a kitchen drawer, with partitions being like moveable dividers -- slide the divider to the left, & the space on the right becomes larger, just like you can make the 1st partition on a drive smaller, giving you more room on the disk for one or more other partitions after it. But I have to be careful when I slide that divider to the left -- I have to leave enough room to fit whatever I want to put in that portion -- & if I try to just shove the divider all the way to the left without emptying the drawer first, something will get broken. With hard drives it works the same way, though rather than emptying the partition you can move everything, all your files/folders over to the beginning of the partition, then just cut away some of the free space at the opposite end to make it smaller. That's what a basic defrag does. Partitioning software might offer to do that for you, though I prefer the regular defrag you should be doing anyway as maintenance. Likewise as I backup my partitions anyway as maintenance, if/when enlarging the 1st partition [i.e. moving the drawer divider to the right], I prefer to delete a 2nd partition, enlarge the 1st, then restore the 2nd from backup to the free space after partition #1 -- to me it's faster/easier & you don't want to have partitioning software moving your data without a current backup anyway.

My opinion is thet profesional edition isnt much better than the free version. The professional edition only has few advantages like resizing volume on dynamic disks and inclusion of Linux bootable disk (not inclusion of WinPE (Windows)bootable disk). Compare this two here: http://www.techishare.com/tech-i-share-giveaway/easeus-partition-master-professional-edition-winpe-review-giveaway/.

I like EPM, but as EPM free edition user, my joy was bigger than this "gift" in reality offer.

PS: you cants save the licence to later or repeated instalation :(.

Comment to Moto Accumulator (42). I do not know how about this version, but the previous version did not conflict with Paragon software at all (up to Paragon Suite 2011, which is my latest Paragon software piece). Hopefully, this one does not cause conflicts either. Best luck.

Hi everybody,
To R&D of EaseUS first:
I wonder why your application hasn't improved or fixed a problem, occurring with "partition copy" since version 6; namely if I wish to copy source to the same size partition (unallocated), it complains that "not enough space" and stops the action.
If I have a 10% bigger unallocated partition, it's OK.
But then it's not "copying = cloning" as far as I'm concerned.

I've had no such a problem with similar applications (TODO backup/ restore 4 or PARAGON PM any version)

I haven't tested any other functions, because I'm interested only in cloning and hoped they would fix that bug.

Otherwise, thanks for the opportunity to test, but a thump down from me and need to uninstall.
Also, thanks for GOTD.

Cheers

I tried to use this software to repartition a drive. All went smoothly until it "hung" part way through. Totally scrambled my drive losing me thousands in software and other information. If I want to recover the data, it will cost me several hundred more dollars, if it is even recoverable. Fortunately I had some of the data backed up, but not all. My stupidity. Even if you get your data back, losing all the programs is horrendous. Make sure you have a FULL BACKUP and all of your program keys and a list of software, all your install discs or programs on an external, prior to running this thing. Otherwise, I'm sure it is nice.

Thanks again to Easus & Giveawayoftheday for the updated product. If you know what you are doing, this is a powerful product - if you don't know what you are doing, you can royally screw up your system. The automated approach to many tasks does make it a lot easier to do such things, though it may not be as straightforward as Paragon, et al, there are uncommon things that Easeus can do that no others can. Paragon is currently further along in SSD support. Easeus is always highly recommended.

#27 Phillip - Vista introduced a different partition table bootstrap loader (at the beginning of the hard drive), and, Vista & 7 prefer to use a different boot method with a hidden system boot partition (all it has is boot code & parameters) as opposed to the OS boot code at the beginning of a system partition (XP and most OSes) launched by a "near-universal" partition table. Unfortunately, this new method is poorly documented, and I've come across a few situations where I absolutely cannot get a Vista & XP dual boot to work with free & lower cost tools available. There are a few enterprise-level priced utilities available for this task. If anybody has any recommendations, put it out there - I'm know that there's more than just me looking. ChengDu YiWo is more than likely looking at this and will be attempting to add this in some future version (historically they have been quite active in adding new features).

The Linux / Open Source arena usually works by "throwing out a proposed standard" and seeing what sticks. The "seeing what sticks" process includes changes & tweaks along the way until a solid consensus is formed. Ext4 is relatively new and still subject to fine tuning. Any sane developer of disk management utilities knows not to support anything that may be changed that will result in invalidated code that may cause potential future data loss (how to very easily ruin a reputation). Linux, unlike Windows, does not always leave strict versioning hints in system data. (FAT underwent at least a half-dozen revisions, NTFS at least 3, all with well-documented, thoroughly tested changes before public release.) Sure, you can pretty much clone any partition (by lying about the partition type if necessary), but how do you support resizing, etc. when journaling & other dynamic features are still subject to change? Unfortunately, you've got to be patient with developers (both OS & utility) - it really wasn't all that long ago when people were asking for Ext3 support.

I am afraid of possibile conflict with Paragon hot clone driver from previus GOTD. Anyone have any idea about compatibility with WIN shadow copy system ?

Excellent Software. I have been using version 8.0 and found it comprehensive and easy to use. Many thanks for the new version.

Just remember in share idea said about FAT (FAT32) will not pick up or create one file more than 4 gb but NTFS will do, E.G. movies or tv or others. FAT = 32 bits NTFS = 64 bits

The Linux boot disk created from this program is a universal boot disk. It can be used on any Windows PC.

Thank you GOTD. Using paragon now. Will give this a try. Bootable partitioning disc option worth it alone even if it doesn't provide ext4 formatting.

Although they highly recommend using the WinPE boot disk, this version won't let you create it. It will let you create the linux boot disk.

Downloaded,installed and running perfectly on Windows 7 64 bit.

I used the previous version of this and found it excellent and so grabbed this upgrade whilst it was going.

For people who have the previous version of this installed, just run the new install from GAOTD and it will detect you have an older version and uninstall it for you and install the new version.

Thanks for the upgrade GAOTD and I will wait avidly for the next one as this is definitely a lifetime keeper.

#27 Philip,

Not sure what you mean by the software making a clone, but you might try EasyBCD that can fix most multi-boot issues! (just google EasyBCD, it's FREE!)

Great FREEBIE today!!

This is probably the BEST partition software available on the market right now along with PARAGON PARTITION MANAGER and ACRONIS DISK DIRECTOR.

The new version of EaseUS Partition Master Professional now supports 2TB partitions on MBR and even up to 4TB on GPT.

The best feature of EaseUS Partition Master Professional 9.1 is of course that allowing you to resize and/or move your partitions, by using the free spaces, and above all the one enabling users to merge neighboring partitions, which as far as I know cannot be found in any other similar freeware program.

So TWO huge THUMBS UP from me!!

As best FREEWARE ALTERNATIVE, especially for those who won't be able to download this GEM before the end of this startling offer, I suggest an amazing HD partition app called "PARTITION WIZARD", which is as far as I know one of the few free partition software out there supporting 64 bit OS right now.

The FREE HOME version of this nice tool provides the same features as today's giveaway except the conversion of FAT disks to NTFS and the merge partitions capabilities, but it supports disk and partition size larger than 2 TB: no bad, isn't it??

And of course, unlike this GAOTD, it's always FREE, meaning you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!!!!

So it's definitely worth a try and not just because it's FREE of charges and of couse it can be a great tool to add on your arsenal should you lose the key license of today's giveaway:

i previously downloaded and installed easeus partition master version 9.0 via previous offering.

like the previous version, today's gaotd and easeus offering is easily downloaded and installed on my pentium dual core e5400 machine with 2x2gb ddr2-800 ram, 1gb 9500gt nvidia video card, 1tb hitachi sata hdd.

the software prompts for the removal of previous version, comes pre-activated, and loads fast so no hassle there.

thanks gaotd and easeus!

Why would I want to use this when Windows 7 and Vista can do this?
