Chinese software developer EASEUS has updated its ToDo Backup software range to version 5. All versions, including EASEUS ToDo Backup 5 Free, gain Windows 8 compatibility, a tweaked user interface, support for large hard drives and the ability to specify file types for backup.
Paid-for versions of EASEUS’s all-encompassing backup and restore tool, including EASEUS Todo Backup Workstation 5.0, also benefit from new backup options involving Windows 7 Libraries and Outlook.
Version 5.0 adds full Windows 8 compatibility to its roster, plus now supports hard drives that are larger than 2TB. It also further tweaks the user interface that was radically revamped in the previous 4.5 release.
Of most interest to those using the free edition is a new feature allowing users to specify file types for backing up in selected folders, to rapidly speed up the partial selection of folder contents. The user must click the drop-down arrow next to File to access the feature. Several templates – including Document, Email and Financial – are provided, or the user can specify their own collections.
Those using a paid-for version of the program gain an additional two features: support for backing up (and restoration of) Windows 7 Libraries with a single click, plus quick and easy Outlook backup and restore.
EASEUS Todo Backup 5 Free is a free-for-personal-use download for PCs running Windows 2000 or later. EASEUS Todo Backup Workstation 5.0 is also available as a trial download, with the full version costing $39.
