New v2 of EASEUS Todo Backup brings (many) new features and a new name

[1]dotTech was one of the first, if not the first, blogs to bring you EASEUS Todo Backup [2]; so it is only fitting that we be the first ones to inform you about the latest release of EASEUS Todo Backup, v2.

The latest v2 update to EASEUS Todo Backup brings many new features:

Of course Todo Backup v2 still has the features that v1 had:

There are a few things worth noting about Todo Backup v2:

In terms of performance, I put Todo Backup v2 through a quick test. I had it backup my 10.4 GB partition, which contains 6.01 GB of data. I set compression to maximum but did not encrypt the backup. It took 10 minutes and 34 seconds for the backup to finish while using 35-45% CPU and about 126 MB of RAM (although RAM usage did spike at the beginning for about 10 seconds to 300-350 MB while the error checking was happening; it came down after those initial 10 seconds to the 126 MB level); the backup file ended up being 5.24 GB.

When compared to Todo Backup v1, the CPU usage is about the same but RAM usage is significantly higher; and compression is more or less the same but backup speed is a bit quicker. (Also, although not exactly performance related, it should noted the download size of v2 is about twice as large as the download size of v1.) Of course this comparison is just a quick one so don’t take it as the ultimate truth; I will put Todo Backup v2 through more rigorousness tests when I update my Paragon Backup & Restore Free vs Macrium Reflect Free vs EASEUS Todo Backup vs DriveImage XML vs Acronis True Image Home [3] article.

Last but not least, it appears EASEUS Todo Backup is now called EASEUS Todo Backup Home. This probably is an indicator that a shareware EASEUS Todo Backup Professional will appear in the near future.

Overall, I must say this v2 update to Todo Backup was much needed and is a welcome update. Is EASEUS Todo Backup v2 better than the other free backup software [4]? I don’t know; I will find out when I update my previously mentioned comparison article. However, without a doubt EASEUS Todo Backup v2 is an improvement over v1.
