I have installed this several times, and I really like it. It gave me absolutely no problems with the registration process, and in fact, I had time to rub creamed corn all over my genitals while humming the theme from "I Dream of Jeannie" and shoving cheeze-whiz up my ass. I felt there were some shortcomings however, like when I shoved dill pickles up my anus it gave me a BSOD. But hey!! No biggie...sometimes when you stick frankfurters up your ass you have to expect your dog to lick your butt sometimes. But all that aside, it's a pretty solid piece of software, and I would recommend it to anyone who tries to fuck Turtle Wax but can't get the child-proof cap off. ***** stars.

Downloaded, installed and registered without any problems on Win 10 (64). I had started the program from 16 o'clock yesterday, and it took all the night to backup my 30.2 GB on my partition C: and it never finished until I forced my Laptop to restart at 7:30! Uninstalled. Too bad.

Making backups is no longer of this time. What does one do when important files are in the clouds?

Downloaded and installed. When I ran it to do a backup I thought it went well until I tried to restart my system. My usual startup routine didn't come up. This programs main screen kept coming up no matter how I tried to get to my regular startup options. As a result I had to re-install and older version of the backup file from Acronis Backup software and restore some files from my cloud backups.

What I found interesting, in looking through the developers site, is there has already been 2 updated versions released with numerous updates:
Version 2.2.0.661
1. Fixed an issue that sometimes the application crashed after launching a while.
Version 2.2.0.658
1. Support Hyper-V virtual machine.
1. Support newer hardware devices.
1. Fixed an issue that in some cases it failed to install boot option.

While I appreciate GOTD and it's ability to allow us to test and evaluate, how are we suppose to evaluate a software properly, when the developer's already know of a few important shortcomings?

DJ,
Agreed! So it seems we are being offered a version with known faults. Makes no sense.
Thank you for researching and sharing your findings.


On a separate issue, thanks to the publisher for including the license info! "NB: Lifetime license; no updates."

DJ, While I have not tried this version of this program I see quite a few commenting on the offer of software with known problems. Do any of you actually follow change logs of software? Every new version fixes issues or adds new options to the prior version, this is unfortunately how software works.

Toby, I do follow different change logs on various programs..if this were a video edit, music download, office helper, I would not care if it was 1 edition behind. But this is a disaster back up just-in-case program.

a suggestion to Isoo/Eassos maybe add an option to adjust the restoration process to different hardware if needed like if there is a motherboard failure and the system needs to be restored to a new replacement computer with maybe a different CPU maker or different motherboard chipset because the motherboard cannot be replaced with exactly the same type.
Paragon have this option in some of their system migration and backup restore programs and is very useful especially when resurecting a failed or obsoleted hardware machine to a virtual machine on a new much more powerful system.

In answer to number 3 , there is a screen to chose the back up to a drive of your choice. It also uninstalled Eassos when I downloaded it .I am careful as to what I download as I am experienced with computers.

I downloaded todays giveaway even though I never heard of this software company. I had only one problem with the process Windows said it was not safe to download, I over rode that and downloaded it . I ran a back up and the back up speed was reasonable, I believe this to be Eassos as I had Eassos before and used it with success. The structure of this software is the same and the also the back up time is the the same. I dont understand why change the name as the previous was very successful, Perhaps leased to another company. During boot up the screen appears with a chance to restore , I found that to be very useful with the previous version of Eassos. I wont try the restore now as there is no reason to as I believe it to be a proven software. I am using the latest win 10 home version on a hp computer.

William Carter, it could be they no longer wish to be associated with the similar sounding Easeus so are changing their trading identity from Eassos to Isoo Technology Co Ltd
Note the previous giveways of Eassos System Restore home page http://www.eassos.com/eassos-system-restore.php link redirects to https://www.isoo.com/
Also https://www.isoo.com/aboutus.php shows the link between the company identities as just a branding thing.

Installed on Windows 10 and went through registration process but unable to tell if it is registered or not because it did not put up a pop up to say and the about does not say and the help does not say. During install it said it needed to uninstall an existing version; which I didn't have; then proceeded to uninstall another program vis Eassos backup which fortunately I don't use. I had a look at it anyway and the back up is all or nothing. ie backup a whole partition with no facility to restore individual folders or files. This is identical to "Macrium reflect free" which I do use (I hope installing this has not messed it up). I was hoping that this would have the functionality of Macrium reflect paid version but as it doesn't its so not a keeper for me and I'm somewhat annoyed that it uninstalled an unrelated program although I could have stopped it had I aborted the install of this one.

D Murphy, When the activated program starts, it reads the file with the activation data. That takes about half a second. If you check the status via About, you will see your name, mail address and activation key.

Reply   |   Comment by krypteller  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

krypteller, As I said. On mine it did not show when I selected About. It did show if I selected register but that page looks as if it is trying to register again and is remembering my previous input. The readme said do not try to register twice or I would have done. Maybe I had not registered and thats why it didn't show but it also did not say it was a trial either. I just could not tell. Surely its bad programing if by trying to register again it will de-register, and also not good that it left me confused even if you do think I am not doing it right.

Reply   |   Comment by D Murphy  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

D Murphy, sorry for the mix-up between Register and About. In the programme folder you can find the proof of a successful activation.

If it is not possible to register the program again, how will we restore a backup to another HD?

Reply   |   Comment by Carl  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+19)

Carl, the registration data is in the Options.ini file in the program's folder. So it will remain registered even if you copy it on another drive.
And there is also the option to make a bootable USB disk.

Installed and registered OK. Program is too limited in scope only allowing backup to local drive with no option to change backup path. Uninstalled immediately.

Reply   |   Comment by jpmalonesr  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+65)

jpmalonesr, you're wrong, there is the option to change the backup path and the image name (of course!).
It is also possible to make incremental backups.
The sheduled backup option is missing though.
Formerly this program was Eassos Restore.

Reply   |   Comment by Poisson Rouge  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

Poisson Rouge, That may be true, I could have missed it but it doesn't change my mind about the lack of features here

The licence only works for the version we get today. You ca nnot activate the trial with it.

At the first run, you can enter a password to prevent unintentional de-installation. That password can be seen and changed when you open the file Options.ini in the programme folder. So it is not secure.

Reply   |   Comment by krypteller  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+27)

krypteller,
the password is so you don't delete it yourself accidently. It is not supposed to be an encrypted password that others can't see.
If you are worried about others seeing your password for the program then secure your computer better.
If someone has access to your computer then they will see much more than just a password to your backup program.
I don't see this as an issue.

Reply   |   Comment by Bill  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

Bill, The word "password" means the word one has to whisper to the armed guard in order to be allowed to pass a gate. Only those who knew the password were allowed to pass. The others ...

The maker should use another term instead of password. Like an "are you really sure"-word. Or a hint. Because it is meant to prevent the user himself to do something that he might later regret.

I see it as an issue if the maker uses A when he means B.

Downloaded, installed and registered without any problems on Win 10 (64). Initial impression was not very inspiring, took a quite a while to initialise when run, almost to the point where I thought the program had crashed. Backup options are very limited, there isn't an option to schedule backups, or if there is I couldn't see it when attempting a quick backup. Very basic functions, don't feel it's worth the asking price there are much better backup programs similarly priced that offer more functionality.
