EaseUS Partition Master Free and Pro Review

By | November 1, 2018

Well, I cannot review Aomei Partition Assistant and not EaseUS Partition Master. Although they are both basically the same, and each offer unique features, EaseUS Partition Master is the one I turn to for my partition management tasks.

For me, EaseUS Partition Master offers better features over Aomei, like their off-power protection mechanism that protects your data when the computer shuts down suddenly due to power-loss. You see, data protection is important to me and should also be for you.

You can use Windows Disk Management for partitioning tasks, but I prefer using a specialized thirt party tool for most of my technical tasks. Especially a well-designed, feature rich and free tool like EaseUS Partition Master Free.

Conclusion

When the guys at EaseUS planned the Partition Master Editions, they did a good job. The features in the free version is what I expect a home user will need and the professional features is catered for a business or power user. Meaning that the free version is adequate for most of us. However, if you work with hard disks and partitions daily, like me, the professional version is a must.

Because I use EaseUS regularly, I did not run specific tests for this article, but I know it works – It has been working for me for over 5 years. I can, without doubt, recommend EaseUS for all your partition management needs.
