dotTech Advice

Ashraf, who has reviewed EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard in the past, had this to say:

EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard is a good program. However, I give EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard a “reluctant” thumbs up because I feel it is way too overpriced at $69.95.  For $69.95 EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard really is not that impressive; that is not to say it is “bad” but rather I expect more if I am going to pay almost $70 for a program. What won me over and convinced me to give EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard a thumbs up instead of a thumbs down is the fact that users can create WinPE/BartPE bootable disks – that feature is very handy.

However, this is a giveaway. This means you don’t need to pay $69.95, $39.95, or even 1¢.

    Well done, Rob. Like you, I’m a subscriber to Make Use Of — it’s an excellent, well-produced website, and I’ve found the various .pdf how-to guides they publish entirely free to be of great help in forwarding to friends.

    This $9 US offer seems truly excellent value though I’m holding off as I didn’t want to risk getting another DL only to find it lacked the boot disk facility — I know, it’s supposed to include this in the standard paid-for package, but then that’s what seemed to be happening with the “free offer” of the standard package here on, but, er, it didn’t.

    Did you have a punt on this or d’you know if anyone else has and have found that yes, the software does include the boot disk facility?

    It would be good if there was an area where members could post some details about themselves, and also have a box where some (non shy) members could type their email address, in case other members wished to contact them.

    Per UPDATE on GHacks site near bottom on Easeus article: THIS OFFER HAS ENDED. Story of my life.

  • MikeR

    @Daniel: Hi Daniel: thanks for the clarification.

  • MikeR

    So, er, um. . .

    This software is the same as free versions from Paragon. There is no WinPE / BartPE boot disk facility.

    Must admit, when I read the report, I was skeptical: WinPE licensing costs money (payable to Microsoft).

    Perhaps, then, the excerpted text at the head of this page — where Ashraf correctly says, of the paid-for edition, that it includes WinPE/BartPE — can be deleted? That text isn’t applicable to the Easeus free offer and is only going to perpetuate confusion.

    Rob: many thanks again for your help! Glad to hear it’s only the 1TB versions — which I stay away from anyway. I mean, I know some people seem to have unimaginably large volumes of data, but even so, the 1TB drive does seem to me to be a basket into which can be put far too many eggs for comfort. I don’t understand how any single external drive or any other single medium is much of a back-up, bearing in mind that hard drives (whether small or large) can and do fail. I prefer to have redundancy, which means several smaller drives carrying the same archived data, rather than one biggie whose failure could be a disaster. Right! Am off to Amazon to hunt out those Seagates! Thanks again, Rob.

  • Daniel

    The software can be installed any time, it not like GOTD (but you can get around that :P) Just make sure you keep a copy of the install file. GR: WinPE, I found that out when one of EASEUS ‘s software was on GOTD and I wanted the winpe disc, they say they won’t give it to you unless you buy the software.

  • Rob (Down Under)

    Thanks for that ‘heads up’
    My first (negative) reaction was ‘what use is it then ?’
    But I ‘took myself aside’ and told myself to see if ‘the cup is half full’.
    So I suppose what we have to do is have more than one PC, and install it into all of them.
    Thus when one dies, we can use the other PC to recover data from the dead one.
    For those of you that do not have more than one PC, does anyone know if the installer (the above download) can be used to install it into a PC, that we buy some months from now ?

  • Rob (Down Under)

    The Seagate disk failures were the One TB versions (series 11)
    They appear to have got it right for the latest series (series 12), but call me an ‘old woman’ I am avoiding them.
    I have a few 500GB ones, and have not had a single problem with any of them.

  • Daniel

    If you want the WinPE disc, they say you need to buy the software. The giveaway editions don’t allow you to get the WinPE disc. Paragon doe come with one, but you need to buy the software of course.

  • Donna Rae

    Thanks for the info for the link. And what a steal I mean Deal.

    Someone commented about not having to need anything like this yet. Yep, felt the same way until I had a crash, then corrupted files and oh so much more mayhem. I have learned a hard lesson, so now I will try to always be ready for things that “May” or “Have Not” happened. Sure wish I was before!

    Thanks Again

    I have EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.0.1, which I downloaded and installed 1/11/11 on my Win 7 PC. I notice that it’s the same version (5.0.1) as the one being offered today, but my installed version is described as “free.” I hesitate to install today’s GotD version since my “free” version could conceivably be updated, while the GotD version could not be. Can someone please explain if and how the version being offered today is different from mine or not? Also, so far no one has explained where the WinPE feature is hidden. Is it really there? Thanks!

  • MikeR

    @Rob (Down Under): Rob: you really are a pal, many thanks for that info. I’m one of the many whose old computer (mine was running Windows XP) expired of old age and its replacement from Dell came with the Vista OS but of course. . . no Vista disk. Dell have installed a “rcovery partition” on the computer but according to many reports, it’s about as useful as a chocolate ashtray.

    I’ve been meaning to sort out a boot disk for some time and have been thinking about Neowin Technology, which has the best Vista boot disk around, but the torrent download is a bit freaky and the non-torrent DL would take me an eternity on my slo-oo-w computer.

    I’ll have a look at Seagate now (though I was initially put off by Amazon reviews, reporting a seemingly widespread failure in recent Seagate drives).

    NB: I’ve DL’d and installed the Easeus app highlighted here but can’t for the life of me find anything anywhere in this software relating to the creation of WinPE /BartPE bootable disks. . .

    @Sherwood Tucker:
    I have just done some Googling to find my posts on ‘Repair Install’
    One page where I described it (in a few posts), someone wrote back and agreed, and then pointed out that Win 7 does not need a Repair Install. He just placed the drive into a new PC and it worked.
    Are you using Win 7 ?
    If so, then all you have to do is image the drive.
    If you do not want to get into imaging (yet), then you could just clone the drive.
    Yell out if you need help on that.

  • Sherwood Tucker

    ummmmmm… I installed on win7 x64 no problems…
    When I click on help, it takes me to Clickbank page help with my order???

    I do not see anyplace where the WIN PE crfeation is located?

    Does not appear to be activated/registered ? (askes for $39.95 to register… Still seems to work…


  • Rob (Down Under)

    The Seagate Disc Wizard is a free download from the Seagate site.
    The latest version installs and runs within Windows.
    Whilst running it, there is then the option to create a bootable CD.
    That is the first thing I do, as I always like to having Windows closed when creating images.
    The bootable CD will then run on any PC, so you do not have to install the App in other PCs.
    The only other times that I run the app within Windows (within Win 7), is for browsing within an image, to retrieve just one file or folder. I do that sometimes, even browsing my XP images whilst running the app in Win 7.
    (Others reading this – did you know that an image can be a complete backup of every file in your drive, and you can retrieve individual files anytime.)
    I have an external dock (where a Sata drive sits vertically within it), for storing my images.
    I connect it via eSata.
    I used the USB connection for a couple of years, but my oldish PCs are a wee bit flaky with USB 2 (Blame MS as it did not allow other companies to create USB2 drivers for their hardware.)
    Having said that, I managed to get reliable images using USB2
    Now that I have placed Sata PCI cards in my old PCs, I use eSata cable instead.
    I like to image to two alternate drives.
    I used to use 2 docks, but now I have an extra Sata drive sitting on the floor of the PC, and I use that as my alternate drive (for images).
    PS Sherwood, I am trying to dig up a previously typed description of my process.
    PPS Mike get one of those external docks, where you vertically stick ‘internal’ 3.5 inch drives into it. The drive runs cooler, and you can have a couple of drives. Actually get a couple of docks as they are very cheap ($35)

  • MikeR

    @Rob (Down Under): Rob: I’m looking to buy another external drive, ideally 2.5″ but if necessary I’ll go with 3.5″. I was thinking about a Seagate drive because I’ve heard good things about Seagate’s back-up app — but am not sure if it comes with every drive or is something with a separate purchase price? If you can clarify (when you’ve a moment) that’d be mucho appreciated: thanks!

  • MikeR

    Thanks Locutus for the heads-up: as usual, you’re a star. (And evidently much more hard-working than Ashraf, who I know for a fact has just sailed his ocean-going yacht into the harbour at Monte Carlo and is sitting there on deck sipping dry martinis even as I write this.)

    I’m going to grab this freebie whilst it’s available because if the WinPE info is correct, then that’s a heck of a bonus — freeware editions from developers like Paragon etc can never include WinPE for nothing because they themselves have to pay Microsoft (and of course, it isn’t included in the full-price product anyway: you have to use the developer’s link to download WinPE yourself.)

    Let’s see how this goes then: software that’s down from $70 to, er, nothing is exactly what I need to have enough spare cash to get myself a rowing boat and tie up against Ashraf’s floating gin palace. . .

  • Sherwood Tucker

    @Rob (Down Under):
    Thanks for the comment…:o)
    Earlier when Easeus had an offer for a backup/cloner etc… I contacted support and was told that the clone OS would not allow migration bec needed a WInPE and the software did not create that??
    Anyway, I was told that I would need the feature called “adjust OS” which was on the premium edition so I figured I would wait for that to be offered.
    I read about the Win7 feature but when I checked around , I concluded that all programs and settings could not be migrated (I think the OS could but only to a new HD on the SAME machine??)

    This is a very complicated task unless one has a program like MIGRATE EASY from PARAGON (no longer supported) which apparently would migrate the entire OS including ALL installed programs and settings to a totally different Windows computer.

    I mean no disrespect when I say that for people who know how to do this (like many other tasks LOL) it is frightfully easy. However for me at least, I have looked and have not been able to find a “cookbook” that says ,”For win7 x64, Step 1, step 2…etc” AND so trying this migration with the knowledge that one slip and all data gone sorta kinda “Scares the Shite out of me” LOL

    So that being said … Yes I would appreciate more knowledge from you about this and I REALLY appreciate your offer.

  • Rob (Down Under)

    You can do a Repair Install and that allows Windows to adjust to the new hardware.
    I have done it many times.
    I would clone your drive to a new drive, or do what I do, and create an image with the free Seagate disc wizard.
    I then restore that image to a new drive.
    You could just use the original drive, but if you stuff up the Repair Install, then “you are up sh.. creek”.
    Whereas if you are working with a clone, you can redo it as many times as you like.
    Yell out if you need more info.
    PS I have heard a rumor that Win 7 can adjust to the new PC, without doing a Repair Install, but I have not tried that yet.

  • Sherwood Tucker

    Hi All!
    Yes , I too have been wondering “Where’s Ashraf?”!
    Glad to see you are busy and everything is OK!

    Personally (knock on wood) I have never needed a data recovery program, however, when the need arises I would guess this software can be invaluable…

    I ma waiting for (Paragon, Easeus, whomever to giveaway a file migration/backup program. Backing up is fine and it is a well known fact that one should do this regularly…

    However, from personal experience, when I had to migrate to a new computer, I had failed to realize that a backup does not backup the OS or installed programs and settings.

    With the myriad of software I have installed (thanks to ASHRAF LOL), WHAT A NIGHTMARE!…
    I always had thought backing up was enough. Never occurred to me about the programs/OS DUH!

    Thanks again you guys… I look forward to your daily/weekly/missives :o)


  • Rob (Down Under)

    No answer, so I installed it, to try creating a CD, with the intention of trying it on my other PC
    That brings me to my next question, regarding this that you mention above –
    “users can create WinPE/BartPE bootable disks”
    Could you advise how to create the CD ?
    I could not find that option.
    In fact I can only find 3 options.

  • Rob (Down Under)

    If one creates the bootable CD, will it work on my other PCs ?
    Probably a dumb question, but “I gots to know” (Dirty Harry)

  • @Ashraf: I’ll do my best! :P Now to just wait for a couple of key software upgrades to be released and I’m good to go. (If you look at the Drafts list you’ll know what I’m talking about.)

  • Ashraf

    @Locutus: You can never be as good as me.

    Just kidding! Keep up the good work, bro.

  • @#A@D%A&M#: Ashraf is unfortunately busy. Luckily, he’s given me power to publish articles so this site won’t go to waste while he’s gone.
    I hope I’m as good as him, even though I don’t write daily or about as many pieces of software.

  • #A@D%A&M#

    Thank you Locutus for this giveaway and posting the articles at dotTech, but, where’s Ashraf??
