    Looks interesting! I have not had the best experience with other free imaging/backup apps (which shall go unmentioned.) Interface too complicated, hardware issues are the biggies I have ran into. I would like to find a nice one I can recommend to friends and family...

    I tried it yesterday and while it made a 100% reliable backup, it took 20 minutes to backup my hard disk, while acronis true image, does it in 5.

    Thank for the news.
    I will give it a spin soon.
    It's free for home use, so sweet.

    If anyone is interested there is/was an advanced beta version of todo 2.0.
    It has a snapshot feature and (I believe) universal restore to different hardware.
    You have to contact support at todo-backup.com to get it.

    Sounds very good for a freebie and the write up reads well.

    In my case, all I have is a hard disk - nothing else. So presumably I cannot play.

    Question ? Will this software back-up selected files and other data onto my hard disk so I can recover them after deletion ? Email folders ?

    I believe EASEUS Todo Backup Home uses Acronis TrueImage engine.
    Previous version had an Acronis logo in the about info.

    Can anyone verify if it still uses Acronis engine?

    Thanks.:)

    G'day :D

    Has anybody tried the latest EASEUS Todo Backup Home v2.0 Free and has anybody been experiencing problem and glitch with this latest version because I'm thinking of giving up Acronis True Image, because it getting a bit difficult for me to keep up with the budget cost as I'm currently using Acronis True Image v10.0.0.4942.

    Thank you :thumb:

    Its linux-based boot disk(image) is not very good, just has the recovery function. If the boot disk also can backup will be better. Or if there is a PE plugin for the v2.0, then its great!:D

    Is there any program, besides Acronis True Image, that has a backup function from the boot disc?

    -Paragon(As I remember, both linux-based and WinPE versions have backup and restore functions)
    -ShadowProtect(WinPE-based)
    -O&O DiskImage(WinPE-based)
    -Symantec Norton Ghost, Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery(WinPE-based)
    -FarStone TotalRecovery Pro(WinPE-based)
    -Clonezilla(Free, linux-based)
    ......etc

    Of course, some backup/imaging softwares can be put into WinPE very easily, for example, Drive Snapshot, Image for Windows, etc...

    This http://redobackup.org/ is another application having backup as well as restore function on the rescue CD; it is freeware.
    I've used it out of curiosity and it does work. As far as I know, Redo does not offer backup to CD/DVD.

    Some questions for current users.

    1. Does this delete old archives when running a scheduled backup or do you have to manually delete?

    2. Can you run the schedule within a LUA? (for some reason my current solution doesn't!)

    3. Can you verify integrity of the archive?

    4. Resource usage during backup and reliabilty?

    Thanks,
    Cgeek

    I checked with support and had their guarantee they in no way, shape, or form are using any Acronis engine or drivers. They said they use all home grown code.
