Don't know if this is still being viewed/monitored, but figured I have nothing to lose.

I downloaded this back in Feb and recently tried using it to migrate an XP OS to a larger drive by using the disk copy feature. It failed.

I installed the brand new drive into an empty slot in the computer. Followed the disk copy wizard exactly, but when I try to boot using the new drive, I soon end up with a black screen with about a line of strange characters (maybe dingbat?) at the top, then it just sits there. Using the same slot, power, and data cable positions for the new drive that the old drive was using does not help. Luckly when I swap out the new drive for the old drive, the old drive still works.

Has anyone come across this and/or know what the issue is and how to fix it?

NOTE: With the new drive installed and during initialzation, constantly pressing F2 does get me to BIOS settings, but these things are completly foriegn to me. However constantly pressing F5 does NOT boot in safe mode.

I had a working version (6.5) previously from GOTD. This new version removed the older version (as expected) but now does not work! It starts, and runs, but will not detect any disks/partitions.
So, now I have no working product!! How can I reload this or the older version?????

I got the same email as did poster #78. No WinPE ISO is available for GOTD users of this software. As I mentioned in my post #69:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
"In addition, there are some features that are simply missing from the Linux CD that are present on the WinPE CD. While Mike may consider it 100 percent using it without those features, not everyone who legitimately gets the software may agree. If the WinPE is part of the package, then Easeus should include the download link. If not, it’s NOT the professional package, it’s something else.

Both Easeus and GOTD should make clear what edition the software really is if it does NOT include the ability to get the WinPE download link."
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This GOTD edition clearly shows that it makes a WinPE edition:
http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e275/sjfeinbe/Easeuscreatewinpe.jpg

Since it does NOT, it is NOT the professional edition, as the ability to make a WinPE CD is part of the professional edition. Both Easeus and GOTD should've made it clear that it is therefore some modified/crippled version of the professional edition.

A CD that isn't included, but should be included. Features on the CD that Easeus warns against using. This is at best confusing, at worst...you decide.

@Eldad, #80: It sounds like you're trying to clone the entire hard drive rather than the active partition. Even if the partition takes up the entire drive, these two actions are usually not treated the same by most drive cloning software. Usually, copying a drive is a 1:1 operation (the destination drive must be at least the same size as the source), whereas copying a partition allows for resizing.

I haven't tried this with Partition Manager, but I've seen this behavior with other software in the past.

I find it very disturbing that when trying to copy (clone) a large HD to a smaller one, EVEN if the amount of data on the large HD is much smalled than the capacity of the small HD, I always get "Destination HD is too small", and the program stops.
It was so in ver. 6.5, and it is STILL in ver. 7.0.1
I don't recall such a problem with any other cloning program that I used in the past.
When will it be fixed?
Thanks, Eldad

To #11 and #13:
'Partition Master 7.0.1 Pro' does have a Disk Copy feature, but the Hard Drive that the files were copied to will have the MotherBoard identification data from the computer having the original disk that the files were copied from, and might not boot up when installed in another computer...unless maybe if the second computer is the same type as the one the original disk is in.

I have some information to give you to either make the second computer boot even if it's not the same type of computer or to initially use migration techiniques, but I will post it within the comments on this page later when I have time.

So check back here in a couple days, and/or register in the Giveaway of the Day Forums and send me a PM (Private Message) and I can work with you from there. Send the PM to "777" (but without the quote marks). Here is the Forums page so you can register:

I received a reply from Easeus support regarding the download link for WinPE. Here it is:

"Thanks for contacting us.
We are sorry the related file of WinPE bootable disk is only provided to our purchase users (the giveaway users are not included), so you may purchase our product to obtain enough privilege to get the download link.

In addition, if you don't want to become our commercial user for now, we suggest you use the Linux bootable disk as an alternative, which also has lots of functions you can use prior to Windows login. Here is the link about this kind of bootable disk; you may get more information from it.

#67--Mike

Please consider answering all questions right here on this forum. 100's of people read this forum now with 1000's to follow in the next months/years.

Doesn't do ME any good to have you answer Grok's questions in a private email. Do you really want email from 4-5 people asking the same questions?

Or not, as you wish. One thing I have JUST NOTICED in my current new computer build: much of my idea is trapped by my history with computers thinking I need much more than I really do. 10 years ago I needed lots of pci connected peripherals: sound card, video, usb card etc. 3 days ago I recognized that EVERYTHING I wanted was on the motherboard or backpane of a Home Theater Microboard. Time has marched on. I think all you advice is similar. Hard drives today are large and cheap and the backup software is more reliable. Emphasize KISS and keep with the times. Same with speeding up the boot times. Not needed anymore unless you are sensitive to 2 seconds and you enjoy the hours taken to maintain it. Who reboots anyway?

Mike, I'm really impressed with (a) your helpful spirit and (b) your dedication to what you do. I've been in computer support one way or another (read: PC's all the way back to stone knives & bearskins) and I love innovative ways of doing the job better -- although I doubt I would have the energy any more for creating a setup quite as elaborate as what you describe. What I do do (do do? LOL) on my own systems is set up the O/S and applications on C:, user profiles and data on D: (well, actually I call it M:) and media libraries on E: (OK, it's really T:) with the goal in mind, like you, of minimizing the grief when Windoze eventually tanks. On my server I put the media library on a separate physical drive and, til now, I haven't bothered with separate O/S and profile partitions because I don't really work on the server anyway, so it's not that big a deal if it has to be reinstalled. Anyway, my experience, in years gone by when I was in a corporate environment I used to use Partition Magic, but in recent years it's deep-sixed enough drives on me that I never use it anymore. These days I usually use gparted (Windoze version) or Paragon Partion Manager I've found to be very good, but in light of all the excellent reviews here I think I'll try Easeus. I had looked at it once several years ago and really wasn't impressed with it, as it seemed like nothing more than a less-functional clone of Partition Magic; but from what I'm hearing, it must have evolved substantially since then. Based largely on your input, I'm going to give it a try. What the hey - nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? -BUT I'll wait until my new TB backup drive arrives.... ;-)

This is a great piece of software. I was fortunate enough to get it the last time it was offered.

I also wanted to add a little piece of information which I have to be beneficial over the years.

Whenever building a computer I use this software to partition the hard drive into four partitions. C = Windows, D = Program fles, E = Spare drive where I keep back-up files, P = Pagefile. Setting your system up this way will significantly enhance the overall performance.

Thanks GOTD and Easeus for offering this.

As of now, hours later, still haven't received the WinPE download link from Easeus.

Regarding Mike's post, #54, where he writes:
------------------------------------------------------------------
Comment by sjf @No.36 = “Before anyone gets too excited about the fact that the pro version will create a recovery CD, understand that it’s a Linux CD with various limitations.”

While this is partially correct - I have to say that it doesn’t really make that much difference to the Software itself.
While WinPE is a better system if you are using it as an Environment – It’s not required to make the Easeus Software run correctly. I’ve never bothered upgrading the Linux Boot upto WinPE on my previous Discs & yet they’ve all performed 100%
You ONLY have the Easeus functionality available via a Linux Booter BUT that’s absolutely perfect for what this program does !!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------

First, I wasn't talking about whether the software runs "correctly" I was talking about the boot CD. Second, even if you "...have the Easeus functionality available via a Linux Booter" does that mean you ignore Easeus' own advice AGAINST using some major functions (which I detailed in post 39) from the CD or use the CD as a crippled version of the software?

When Mike says that his previous boot CD's have "performed 100%" does that mean he used the very features which Easeus warns NOT to use from the CD? Is Mike then suggesting that others also use features on the CD Easeus specifically warns against using? If so, he's doing users a disservice giving bad advice, unless he knows more about the software than Easeus does.

Or is he suggesting that using it WITHOUT the features Easeus warns against using is a 100 percent use of the software?

In addition, there are some features that are simply missing from the Linux CD that are present on the WinPE CD. While Mike may consider it 100 percent using it without those features, not everyone who legitimately gets the software may agree. If the WinPE is part of the package, then Easeus should include the download link. If not, it's NOT the professional package, it's something else.

Both Easeus and GOTD should make clear what edition the software really is if it does NOT include the ability to get the WinPE download link.

Hi Folks
Comment by Grok @ No.57 = "#22 Hey Mike, I’m always trying to set my system up smartly, but it’s not that easy. This seems like a very clever plan, I only wish there was even more explanation about it. Do you know of a place(s) I can go to get a greater understanding of it all.
For instance, “C:Boot Data”: How do I distinguish which data is Boot Data vs my XP System and how to set them up.
And how do you make sure that you’re programs install to a different location? Is that just done by using folder redirection? And if so, then I’d assume the same would be true for “My Documents”.
And with “H: Virtual DVD”, are you just saying that you simply use the H: drive as pretend offline DVD storage? Or are you talking about a software generated Virtual Drive setup, like Magic Disk?
I am willing to do the work, but it would be great to have some additional resources for reference so I do it right"

I have the earlier version 5.5.1 and it works so I won't have it uninstalled to "test" the new version. While I plan to get the 3 TB Hard Drive, I assume a Boot Parition of 80GB can still be copied onto a 3-4 TB disk. But, we will see later. These backup programs cannot be trusted until you actually do a total restore. Then you know it works--not before.

I encourage GAOTD to formally list whether or not previous versions will be automatically overwritten or better yet should be uninstalled prior to installation. Or even better: can I just relabel the older folder Easeus (OLD) and keep both programs? That "should" work unless there are registry entries that get fouled up?

I have the same questions of Mike that #57 Grok does. I thought "boot data" was kept in the bios? So there is other types of system data that needs to be accessed? Drawback I can "imagine" is that if your system won't boot, is the problem in C or D drive? And how do you get into SAFE mode if your OS is on two different drives? Nah==something doesn't add up there==but I'm just a self taught hobbyist. Here's my alternative: Install everything to C Drive and just back it up to an external hard drive every month or so and then swap drives to make sure the back up is a good one. Again, if you don't test your back up, you got nothing.

#30--Julia==The easiest answer to your question is No, you can't do it. Too many programs have to be "loaded" into the registry in order for them to work. The exception: your other computer has the same bios. If that is true, then you can copy and swap hard drives as you please. I have 3 home computers where that is the case. It makes for effortless backups as on any crash, the other two machines are still a go. There are other more technical answers like making your copy then removing all drivers then putting the hard drive in your new system and reinstalling new drivers. Its easier for me just to do a clean install at that point, but to each their own?

It's been a number of hours since I emailed Easeus to get the download link for the WinPE disk. Still hasn't arrived. I'm really glad that Mike's (post 54) Linux boot "performed 100%." I just wonder if he performed the operations that Easeus SPECIFICALLY advises against, which I mentioned in post 39.

Additionally, Mike's comment "I have to say that it doesn’t really make that much difference to the Software itself" baffles me slightly. Does that mean when using the software from within Windows? If so, that has nothing to do with the boot disk(s) issue I was talking about. If not, does he mean that the software works fine from the boot disk, even though Easeus specifically warns against using certain functions and other features aren't even available on the Linux bootable CD?

As I mentioned before, in my experience using partition management software is best done from a bootable CD, NOT from within Windows and NOT from the disk you wish to manipulate. In this case, Easeus fails because Easeus warns against doing certain useful operations when using a boot disk.

Mike's experience may be different and I have no problem with that. He may happily use such software from within Windows and/or manipulate disks the software is on. However, I AM...and WAS...writing about the boot disks, the limitations, and the lack of a WinPE ISO. If Mike claims he has used the CD to manipulate the drive in ways that Easeus itself has warned against, mazeltov. Meaning: good luck. OTOH, if he has HEEDED Easeus' warnings, then the CD has very, very limited use.

Either way, no matter how good the software may be in Windows, Easeus itself recommends that certain important features should NOT be used from the CD. Doing it is against their advice, not doing it means the CD is far less useful then the installed software. That's part of the point I made earlier.

Even if Mike has had good results ignoring Easeus's warnings regarding how the CD is used, it is very bad advice to suggest that others do the same.

As for EASEUS, I have tried it in the past but had some inexplicable problems until I removed it. My research on the web indicated that I wasn't the only one experiencing issues with it. I've been using Paragon with good effect, however, based on the glowing comments here, I'm going to give EASEUS another try, maybe they've solved those problems.

Thanks GAOTD! I love this resource for trying out software I might not otherwise use. You're awesome!

In case it helps...

You can't *do anything* with files while they're being used -- things like backup software take a snapshot of what any files in use look like at that particular moment, & work with that snapshot. So if you're in Windows you can do things like copy the partition with Windows on it, &/or work with other, more-or-less inactive partitions, but you're limited by those files that are in use & therefor can't be touched. This why some things have to be done outside of Windows. EASEUS Partition Master will handle some stuff just during a reboot, & it also comes with a CD ISO file you can burn to CD -- booting to that CD starts up a mini-*nix environ with EASEUS software installed. With a bit of research [i.e. Google/Bing] you can put that ISO on a USB stick if preferred.

When your PC/laptop boots it looks for the boot loader, then proceeds to load whatever OS you've installed [or your choice of OS if multi-boot]. When it's looking for that boot loader it checks 1 attached device after another until it finds a boot loader -- the bios stores the order in which it'll check those devices. To boot from a CD or USB stick etc. you need the PC/laptop to find that CD or device before it looks at your boot hard drive. Sometimes you have to hit a special key (or key combo) to see the boot screen -- you have to do the same [e.g. press Delete] to enter bios setup where you can set the boot device order. Some PCs/laptops have a special key or combo to bring up a boot device order menu while booting. If you can't otherwise boot to USB, & want to, maybe PLoP CD can help http://goo.gl/zJMLz .

* * *

Windows is not portable... The reason is that it has to use hardware specific drivers to talk to your PC/laptop, & most are different, most PCs/laptops use different hardware. To move a Windows install from 1 PC/laptop to another, Windows has to be changed to use the right drivers for that new hardware. Changing Windows's core drivers can be done a couple of ways, but often shouldn't be done at all... whether you're upgrading your version of Windows or moving Windows to new hardware you'll have stuff left over -- adding new drivers is relatively easy, but removing the old stuff is hard, & yes, the stuff you don't remove can often cause problems (though potential problems are not always major). There's also something to be said for a fresh Windows install -- all the updates & software we add/remove takes it's toll, & just as some advise starting fresh every so often, chances are you'll be happier starting fresh when/if you get a new PC/laptop.

That said, unless you've got a copy of a Microsoft app they pulled when 7 came out [it was incompatible with 7], or use software from Laplink, migrating your drive/partition to a new system is about the only way you'll avoid re-installing all your apps. The 3 ways I've done it are 1) using Paragon software to remove *most* critical hardware listings in the registry, 2) booting the new system into Safe Mode, then removing/uninstalling drivers in Device Mgr, & 3) just crossing my fingers & hoping for the best. Using any of those 3 methods I manually updated/installed some drivers, & Windows automatically did the same. None of the 3 are totally foolproof, & all left [sometimes a lot] of stuff behind.

Hi Folks

Comment by S.S @ No.34 = "Can this turn my external hard drive to a FAT32?"

The simple answer is YES - No Problem :o) You select the Partition Format TYPE While chosing how the Drive is to be modified / Built !
Fat / Fat32 & NTFS are the ones I use. NTFS for Hard Drives Fat32 & Fat for external drive that don't support NTFS !
for some BIZZARE reason - My Sony Vaio Laptop will only support "Fat" ( Fat16 ) as it's Boot sector even though it's only about 5 years old & NTFS was the standard then !!!

Comment by Barb @ No.42 = "Question for Mike - You said you use the CD version of this program. How do you get/make a CD version?"

This is really straight-forward to do -
First you have to install the EASEUS Partition Master software onto your Hard Drive as you usually would.
.
Next - put a Blank CD-R / CD-RW - ( or DVD obviously ) - into your machine's writer.
.
Make Sure you put a BLANK Disc into the drive at this point because the software checks the media
& if it doesn't like what's in the drive - it displays "Nonsupport Type" . . . & DESPITE me changing to a Blank - the message never changed & I had to close & restart the program !
.
Next - find the FOLDER in your Start Menu for EASEUS Partition Master.
The FIRST option offered is "Bootable Media Builder" - Click this one !
You SHOULD now see
- Your Drive Letter
- Your Drive ID
- Your Drive TYPE
- & Finally EITHER
( IF it's a BLANK Writeable Disc ) - the Disc Type you've inserted
OR ( IFit's not a BLANK Disc / Writeable Disc ) - "Nonsupport Type" . . . IF this happens Eject - try another Disc & re-Start the program !
Just click "Proceed" & the burn starts ... My Disc took around 20 Seconds to complete on a standard CD-R !!! ( The ENTIRE Disc is only 30 MegaBytes - hence the reason I used a CD-R instead of a DVD-R )

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

Apologies for any Typos

For those who already have/use EASEUS Partition Master, the main update seems to be support up to 4 GB drives [ http://goo.gl/JQAfj ], though most files are newer so there may be other improvements "under the hood". Downloads are a bit slower than usual [more folks taking a Snow Day?]. The EASEUS Partition Master FAQ [ http://goo.gl/OScFo ] & forum [ http://goo.gl/ZgI7L ] provide lots of info for those new to either partitioning or Partition Master, & if or while you're at their site you might also want to check out their free backup app [ http://goo.gl/9ePyT ] if you don't have something similar already [e.g. one of the Paragon backup apps that's been on GOTD] -- to be safest backup before doing any major rearranging on your hard drives/partitions.

A bit (over?) simplified, data storage devices have at least one partition that's required before you can actually store any data on it. You can add more, & operating systems like *nix & Windows will see those added partitions as added, separate storage devices. These added partitions can be used just to make things neater, easier to organize & maintain, &/or they're used to keep things separate [somewhat isolated] so that for example you can install more than one operating system on the same PC/laptop. In many cases another way to accomplish that is by using virtual hard drives -- while Partition Master will work on USB devices, the way that Windows handles USB sticks [& SDHC cards etc.] can make using more than 1 partition problematic, so on those devices virtual drives [e.g. Truecrypt] might be more popular.

EASEUS Partition Master in a nutshell lets you create, delete, & otherwise manage partitions. Most of the time this is pretty straightforward, deciding how much space on a hard drive to give to each partition, then creating, deleting or modding them to make it so. If/when you want to add a 2nd partition, you decide how much space you want to take away from the 1st or primary partition, & in most cases that's how big the 2nd partition is going to be. And ideally when you do that [add a 2nd partition], all your stored data [files] will be at the beginning of the first partition, so you're only dealing with the drive's free space. If that's not the case, defrag the drive 1st -- you can let partition software do it for you, but the results usually won't be as optimized, & there's an awful lot more to go wrong if things do go wrong. Using EASEUS Partition Master, as long as you stay away from more advanced features [e.g. disk editing], maybe the most confusing thing you'll encounter is some operations want/need unallocated or raw space -- not a formatted partition -- so you might have to backtrack & create or delete one.

You can also copy a partition with EASEUS Partition Master -- it's *almost* the same thing as cloning a drive, or restoring a drive/partition backup image to a new location, except new file tables are written. Copying a partition is faster than copying individual files/folders [you're dealing with raw data rather than parsing it to find files/folders], unless the destination is smaller, doesn't have as much space as the original -- in that case try shrinking the original partition 1st, or just use something like FastCopy [ http://goo.gl/PpX5 ], bearing in mind that copying files will not by itself make a partition bootable.

There are several partitioning tools you can use -- EASEUS Partition Master & Paragon's apps IMHO fill the top 2 slots for all-around, general user, Windows apps... the difference is Paragon's software tries to do more for you automatically, which isn't always a good thing, & EASEUS has a more no-nonsense GUI. Paragon software can also usually be easily made to work portably -- Partition Master can't -- making it the obviously better choice if/when booting to something like LiveXP [a (much) better WinPE alternative IMHO]. Both can install & work well in a VM [Virtual Machine] -- this is handy if/when you need to shrink a partition before copying, & don't want to [or can't] mess with the original.

@ Mark (#42),

Mirroring and Partitioning are two different tasks for two different sets of purposes. Read responses #15 and #22 for more detailed explanations on the value of partitioning.

I've been benefiting from GAOTD almost since they started. Occasionally, software comes along that warrants a round of applause and EASEUS certainly does. Installed on my Vista, 64-bit flawlessly. I created a drive for media, since the last incarnation of this laptop (recently reformatted) got entirely bogged down by copious amounts of music files. Followed Apple's instructions for moving the library, which is currently transferring, flawlessly. I look forward to having an efficient, organized laptop this time.

Question- Can EASEUS Partition Master 7.0.1 Pro be installed over earlier versions?
==========================
For those wanting info about WinPE, here are some of the things I found by Googling WinPE. It all looks too complicated for me, but I might try the BartPE Bootable Disk approach. Someday.

"Microsoft's WinPE is a stripped down version of Windows XP capable of running from boot CD-ROMs. Its name stands for "Windows Preinstallation Environment". It is used as an installation platform for OEM/Enterprise customers.

"WinPE does not require a hard drive to boot, it can run solely from a CD drive using the memory for dynamic data. This feature makes WinPE appealing for data recovery and system maintenance purposes. In fact, you can run our software from such a CD-ROM.

"WinPE is not available for end user customers, but all files needed for WinPE to run are included in a retail Windows XP installation CD."

Thanks to the people at EASUS, GAOTD, and those who posted meaningful comments today.

I've used a number of EASUS products (including previous version of this one)for several years on 5 computers (Win XP & 7, 32 & 64 bit). They always work! They're easy to use, fast and reliable! I've tried several others (including paid ones - like DriveImageXML & Norton Ghost) and they've failed me when I've really needed them. Easus always comes through. I've created, resized and moved partitions many times with EASEUS Partition Master Pro and Free version and never a hitch.

I tried to download and install this and got a message saying I had a previous co[py of it and to uninstall it. There as a button to do so. I hit it and got a message saying the previous copy does not exist !! ??

I checked the All Programs list ( Start---all programs ) and it is listed. I tried to uninstall and got the message saying it did not exist !!

I looked at REVO uninstaller and it lists tthe previous one and I tried to uninstall it but got the same message saying it does not exist!!!

Help !! I really want this newer program. I use WIN XP SP3 and IE 8 and 3 GB ram. It is an eMachine D6417 about 4 years old.

Thanks

You said you use the CD version of this program. How do you get/make a CD version? Thanks for all your helpful comments!

For partition management this is a personal favorite of mine over all others, and I believe I have just about tried them all.

EASEUS makes a fine product and I've used their various versions for years. Its quite simple to use, not nearly as bloated as some, well programmed, reliable, nice layout, and simply does the job better than anything else, IMHO.

If you need partition management, and most of us do, sooner or later, this is definitely one to have on-hand. 5 stars *****

Kudos to EASEUS and to GAOTD for providing us this great package, yet again, only in a brand new version.

Just wondering:

How is using a software like this better than having a mirror drive that you duplicate once a week or so?

Thanks.

My previous version wasn't removed automatically, said the uninstall file was missing. Tried CCleaner, and no luck, so had to use Revo which did work.

Note also in that page link I gave in my above comment that it says:

"We strongly recommend you don't do the following operations under WinPE environment.

1. Operations to the system partition.
2. Convert dynamic disk to basic disk.
3. Convert FAT file system to NTFS.
4. Defragment partition."

These are severe limitations and lead me to wonder if the Linux bootable Cd also has these limitations in addition to its other limitations or can it do these operations? Other partition manipulation software CAN do these operations from the bootable CD.

In my experience, manipulating partitions is BEST done from a bootable CD and NOT from the hard drive to be manipulated.

Before anyone gets too excited about the fact that the pro version will create a recovery CD, understand that it's a Linux CD with various limitations. If you want the WinPE CD that doesn't have those limitations you have to contact Easeus at this email address

support@partition-tool.com.

All this is described at this link:

http://www.partition-tool.com/resource/manage-partition/winpe-bootable-disk.htm

Note that I've contacted them at the above email address saying that I'm a GOTD user and would like the download link for the WinPE ISO image. I'm waiting for a reply.

I installed the software.

How do I know, that it has been activated?

It did not prompt me for any activation/registration information.
Help > about does not have any indication of the registration/activation status.
Nor do any other menu choices either make a reference to, or display the activation/registration status.

Does anyone know, how to display this?
