Disk/Partition Backup

Suppose there is only one disk with more one partitions on your computer. System Backup is to back up the partition only where the system and boot partitions are saved. In this case, you should use Disk/Partition Backup to help you back up the rest data partition.

EaseUS Todo Backup Disk/Partition Backup

Basic Settings:

Sector by sector backup - All the data sectors and blank ones are to be backed up with Sector by sector backup checked. It is useful when file system error occurs. It slows down backup speed with a relatively larger image compared with normal backup.

Destination - Click the folder icon to modify your backup destination.

Plan name and Description - An accurate plan name and appropriate description will help you distinguish easily.

Advanced backup settings

Advanced backup settings are useful when you want to create a flexible and automatic backup plan. Schedule is to create an automatic backup plan. Backup options is to edit the advanced parameters. Image-reserve strategy is to reserve the limited image as per image retention rule.

2. Can I back up the network drive?
A: No, EaseUS Todo Backup can just help you back up the files and folders on network drive. It cannot back up the whole network drive.

3. Where should I save backup image file?
A: You can save backup image to local hard drive, network drive, or other storage device. Please don't save the backup image to the same partition which you are willing to back up.

4. What is dynamic volume? Does EaseUS support its backup?
A: Dynamic volume is a part of a dynamic disk. Dynamic disk manages the volumes with a LDM (short for Logical Disk Manager) database. Compared with basic disk, dynamic one is divided into multiple types of volumes. Most dynamic volumes have advanced features in data storage, such as data redundancy in a Mirrored volume and fault-tolerant features in a RAID-5 volume.
Backup is supported. The backup process is the same as disk/partition backup on basic disk. One big difference lies in display. To be more precise, all the volumes on different disks are listed all together.
