    Hi.
    Which free backup software should I use?
    Easeus Todo backup software 2.5 or paragon backup and recovery advanced free?

    Now that todo backup 2.5 is out with new features I'm really confused.

    Please help me out.

    Thank you for any reply.

    If you are confused with Easeus then use Paragon? Have you tried either?

    No. I have tried neither.
    I read reviews saying easeus todo backup software 2.5 has new features and faster than paragon but it still lacks some important features that paragon backup and recovery software advanced free.

    That's why I have come to you guys for your experience and suggestions.

    So what do you think? Which one should I go for?

    You have answered your own question. "important features".

    If these are your only choices I would use Paragon. I've used both and while they both took images fine, I had issues with restores on Easeus (it would restore fine but even though I told it not to resize partitions it did it anyway. Support said it was their "advanced algorithim"). :)

    How about considering Macrium Free and Keriver 1-Click?

    Easeus and Paragon both seem to cram too many features into much of their software and I am a believer in keeping software as simple and focused as possible. I believe both are good but I feel more comfortable with Macrium and Keriver.

    I think this is a bad practice, especially if more than one imager is used. Some programs are very sensitive to partition size, and they don´t restore if the partition size has been reduced, no matter how small the change has been.

    I agree. For example, it ALWAYS restored my 100mb System Reserved partition as 86mb (instead of the 100mb)...and it would move the 14mb of new free space to the end of the disk. Most people wouldn't even know I guess but it's that lack of attention to detail that bothered me. They kept saying that's just the way it works.

    Hi.
    These two are not my only choices. I mean I don't know any other good software. I choose from what I read on great forums like this one.

    Right now I'm only looking for free ones. Many suggested I need to have a backup software but right now I don't have money to buy. Maybe a few months later.
    This is only my temporary setup. Maybe then I'll comeback to you guys for some good paid backup software recommendations.

    I did not read many pros on macrium reflect and I think it also has less features.
    I'm not sure about keriver, not heard or read about it before. I checked the website. Maybe I'll try it out if you guys recommend it .

    I found easeus and paragon to have more features than others. If you guys know any better ones please suggest it and help me.
    I think I'll not go with todo backup now that you said the problems.

    Thanks.

    you haven't said what OS you are using.

    if you are on Windows 7 you can use its own imaging utility.
    if not then i'd recommend Macrium Free.

    if it has to be free macrium 100% is what i would choose if you can go paid you can get image for windows for 29$ and o&o i saw for 19$ both offer more than the free macrium. macrium is very reliable just that the free one doesnt do incrementals.
