Windows 7: Easeus todo for images?

Easeus todo for images?

I thought I'd start a separate thread. I am having issues completing an image backup using Windows 7 built in software. It always used to work well and have used it restore from but lately it seems to claim my USB hard drive disconnected right near the end causing the backup to fail. Aggravating as the 650 gb image can take a few hours. It may be a problem with the USB drive itself (despite not actually disconnecting as I can always still see it connected). So will try another one but am thinking I need a third party solution. A couple of you kindly recommended macrium but I got put off slightly because you need to create a winPE for booting at times of recovery and its s huge download etc.

I just want to image the entire drive from time to time in a really simple way. I know a lot the data is static but if it takes a few hours it's not a problem. That's why I liked Windows own image software for its simplicity. And as long as you've got the windows media disc then you can boot to the recovery environment. So the third party solution I just want an easy ability to create the recovery DVD to burn without a colossal download or complications. When Windows image finished it gives option of a start up recovery disc which burns in no time at all. I'm looking for something very similar. I did find easeus todo on the net. Is this any good as a freebie? Simplicity is key for me, not fussed about bells and whistles or incrementals etc. Just want to be able to do a basic entire disc image from within Windows with ease to restore

Cheers,
Wayne

The Macrium WinPE iso you can download from my One Drive. It is only a few hundred MBs. This is version 5 though. I am not using version 6.

Hi Wolfgang,

Can i ask why you still use version 5 and not version 6 ?
The changes in V6 is what sold me on changing from Acronis to Macrium.

No special reason. I am just too lazy to update and V5 seems to do the job.

Thanks, I'm just waiting for my new portable HD to come tomorrow and will try it with Windows own image software and if that fails I'll try and locate macrium v5, their site seems to only have v6. I am still wondering if it's because it's a portable USB 3.0 drive I am trying to use that causes it to fail right near the end. In the past when I used Windows image I always had an externally powered USB drive before it failed. It always seemed to work. The last image I did was about 9 months ago so I also wonder if good old windows updates have changed something in all this time which has ruined the software (but I think unlikely). I ordered another portable drive and will send the other one back. The trouble is on Amazon decently priced powered USB drives (I need 1 terrabyte) are hard to find. They all seem to be portable drives now.

Same here except it's not laziness. I run the last version update of V5 on my PC and it has all the features I currently need. I don't want to use incremental or differential imaging and I don't want the software to purge images. I have V6 on another PC because that is what is on offer now and think some of the added options could be confusing.

You can try Windows own image software. If it works for you, that's fine. It just has little options and is a bit iffy or touchy when played with.

The Macrium V5 is still available from here:

Thank you. I notice there are numerous version 5.xxxxxxx listed. Is there a specific one I should download that is compatible with your WinPE iso or just pick the latest v5 on the list? Apologies but I'm not really geared up on iso etc. When I download from your sky drive is there just one file or multiple files? Do I burn them exactly as they are to disc and it's ready to be used as a recovery disc for restoring images should Windows go completely wrong?
