EaseUS Software has released EaseUS Todo Backup 6.0 Free and EaseUS Todo Backup 6.0 Workstation, major new versions of its image- and file-based backup tool. Version 6.0 adds support for recovering individual files from partitions, while WorkStation users also gain tools for simplifying migration between physical and virtual machines.
The major new feature affecting all users is support for recovering selected files from image-based backups. Previously users could only recover entire partitions or disks, but now users can either recover individual files using the Recovery wizard, or mount the image as a virtual drive for browsing and extracting files.
To recover selected files from a drive image, users should select Recovery and choose File recovery. A list of all backups should be shown – select the appropriate disk and partition backup from the list and click Next. From here, users can opt to recover specific files or folders, search for files to recover or recover files by type using the categories and file types specified.
Then it’s a choice of either recovering files to their original location – copies will be created where necessary unless “Replace existing files” is ticked – or by choosing a specific folder or drive to recover data to. Users can also mount images via the Tools menu to access them as read-only virtual drives using Explorer itself.
EaseUS Todo Backup 6.0 Workstation also introduces P2V copy and P2V recovery functions for those operating with virtual environments. These two features make it possible for users to migrate physical hard drives – including operating systems – to a virtual machine with the minimum of fuss.
EaseUS Todo Backup 6.0 Free is available now as a free-for-personal-use download for PCs running Windows XP or later. Users can purchase the Home version with more features for $29. EaseUS Todo Backup 6.0 Workstation is also available as a free trial download for PCs running Windows XP or later – including Windows Server editions – with the full version currently available for $39. Upgrades from previous versions are also available.
