I stopped using the free Easeus Todo backup.

Nowhere near as good as it udsed to be.

They still do a fine free partition manager - and the Data recov wiz is very good.

I used EaseUS for a year or so, but gave it up.

No major complaint, but I did notice that my EaseUS directory was over 290 MB, compared to 48 for Macrium.

Yes I noticed it was quite bloated for a free product. Had 5 or 6 services running in the background if I remember correctly.

Apart from the image mounting service which can be set to manual, Macrium doesn't need any services to run.

2 services, which can be set to manual. And around 175 mb diskspace for todo bu 4.0. Must say it's been very good for my use over the years.

They may have trimmed it down with later versions as I haven't had it installed lately but the version I had there was always more than 2 processes running in the background.
Seemed like a decent program but just didn't work well with my pc. Caused a couple of blue screens which I hadn't had before and haven't had since I uninstalled it.

The previous Todo free included winpe builder.

In the Easeus folder there was a directory called winpe or something similar - that contained all the files that were used to make pe disc - that is why it was large.

Without that , it is now about 175mb .

It was a very good freebie - it used to have more functions than other freebies.

They have now taken a lot of the features out of the free version.

^ Of course, it's not absolutely necessary to run the latest versions of the product with the features removed. As long as the older version works with your OS and does what you need, why upgrade?

Any place to download the older versions that had WinPE and the other missing features?

Before the free version started disintegrating the user interface seemed to be going the way of Acronis True Image where it starts getting confusing in regards to what is exactly getting backed up. I realize the "yellow" partition is what is getting backed up but it would have been better to get textual confirmation since data on these partitions can be so important.

I guess I'll just go back to the Windows 7 imaging utility and resize the reserve partition to 1GB next time I reformat to see if that glitch goes away.

Disk imaging utilities must be extremely hard to get right since companies seem to start out with the right idea then end up overcomplicating both the product and the pricing.
