EaseUS Todo Backup Home - Review

We rely a lot on our digital technology for storing our memories along with other important information. Unfortunately, this technology can be quite vulnerable, falling victim to accidental damage or malicious cyber attacks. As consumers, it is important that we find the right tools to protect our precious data in any way we can, and one such method is regular backups.

While there are several backup solutions out there, one that stands out is EaseUS Todo Backup. This easy to use tool comes from a company with over 14 years of experience in the field and offers everything you'd expect from backup software.

EaseUS Todo Backup is a reliable and professionally built back up and recovery solution, that enables customers to protect their files, partitions, disks, and their entire system. The solution is easy to use, only requiring a few clicks for complete data protection or backing up an entire system to recover on new hardware.

While EaseUS offers solutions for home users, businesses and service providers, today we will be taking a closer look at EaseUS Todo BackUp Home version 11.4 for Windows. The company offers a separate EaseUS Todo Backup for Mac users.

With the Home version for Windows, you can set up automated backup plans, customizing it for the operating system, hard disk, partition, file/folder, and email data backup. Customers who are upgrading their computers can use Todo BackUp to transfer all their content from an old hard drive over to the new one or perform a complete, or incremental system restore, which can be used to restore your system in the event of a crash.

EaseUS Todo BackUp Home version 11.5 for Windows has the following features:
  • File-level and image-level back-ups
  • Incremental or full back-up (up to 16TB)
  • Disk/Partition back-up
  • System back-up
  • Outlook Email back-up
  • Cloud back-up
  • Back-up to storage devices
  • Back-up scheduling and reporting
  • Manage all back-up jobs
  • Compatible with GPT/UEFI
  • Quickly create an exact copy of any partition/volume
While the free version of this software offers many of its features, you won't get advanced functions such as Outlook email backup/recovery and the ability to transfer your data to a different PC.


The setup file is around 100MB in size to download and the installation should take around 600MB of disk space. The installation process is pretty straightforward and would only require the user to go through the prompts to finish setting up EaseUS Todo Backup Home. After installation is complete, tap the 'Finish' button and you will be able to launch the BackUp software from the newly created shortcut on your desktop.


Todo Backup Home has an easy to use interface with all of its functionality found on a menu on the left. You can hover your mouse over each of the menu items to see what they do. You can easily create automatic backup schedules so you that once you have it set up, you won't have to think about it again.

Once you have created your backup tasks, they can all be found in the main window, making them easy to manage in this one place. You can create as many versions of a backup as you like, and you can search for and load up the version you want when you want.

Before you perform any kind of backup, it is always adviced that you close any open apps in order to ensure that all saved information is included in your backup. It is also advised to give an accurate name and date for your backups, to make it easy to identify the correct ones you need.

The Disk/Partition backup allows you to backup entire drives or even select partitions if you don't wish to backup everything.

With the System backup feature, customers will be able to back up the Windows operating system along with the user settings, which they can restore in case of any hardware failure. EaseUS Todo Backup Home lets you store your operating system backup on an external drive so you can use your personal system on any computer.

EaseUS Todo Backup Home will let you perform a full system backup, disk/partition backup, email backup, cloud backup, file backup or smart backup.

A smart backup lets you perform a backup every half hour if it detects any changes to your files. A full backup in comparison can be scheduled to take place once every 7 days after the initial backup is complete.

File Backup would likely be a commonly used service from EaseUS Todo Backup Home. Users will be able to set up an automatic schedule so you won't have to worry about losing files that were accidentally deleted.

Scheduling your backups is extremely easy. Just pick a time and date you'd like to schedule your backups and tell the software to wake up your computer and run the backup. If a backup is missed by any chance, you can set an option for the backup to take place next time you boot your computer.

After performing your full backup, you can save time in the future by performing full backups, they could opt for incremental or differential backups. These backups are based on the full backup and will save time for the user. The incremental backup will only save files that have been changed. The differential backup meanwhile copies files that have been changed since the last backup, making the process slower than incremental backups but still quicker than performing a full backup.

While EaseUS Todo Backup Home makes it easy to perform several backups, over time they can start taking up room on your hard drive, eventually filling it up. EaseUS combats this with their 'image reserve strategy', which instructs the software to remove data after a certain amount of time. Users will be able to preserve the backups they want. The software also allows you to further save space by compressing the backup files.

The email backup feature works with Microsoft Outlook, and if you have the email client installed, EaseUs will let you backup your mailbox or select specific folders in the mailbox you'd like backed up.

Users who prefer storing their data on the cloud will be happy to note that EaseUS Todo Backup Home also supports backup of files and Outlook to popular cloud storage services, like OneDrive, Google Drive, and Dropbox with high efficiency.

Cost, Value and Conclusion

EaseUS Todo Backup Home is offered in either a 1-year or 2-year subscription form or as a Lifetime License. Potential customers could always try out a free trial version of the software before they invest in it.

Whichever you pick, you will get free technical support from EaseUS Todo Backup Home and the license will only be valid for a single computer. Comparing all three, it would appear that the lifetime license offers the best value of the three, and it also includes a lifetime of free upgrades. 

EaseUS Todo Backup Home supports all versions of Windows desktop and server starting from Windows XP.

With over 14 years of experience, EaseUS is a company that clearly knows what they are doing in the field. Their Todo Backup Home is easy to use and well designed offering all the features you would expect from backup software.
