How to create the WinPE of EaseUS Todo Backup with CD/USB, so that we can recover our system, backup when the operating system crash. The article shows you ways to create the bootable USB/DVD and ISO image.

Why need WinPE Bootable Disc?

When the operating system can't boot, or migrate the system from backup image to another HDD/SSD, we maybe need WinPE bootable Disc. Under the Pre-installation Environment, we can run EaseUS Todo backup without system boot partitions, and recover system/data from the backup. EaseUS Todo Backup supports two ways to create the rescue CD or bootable DVD: Linux based bootable disk and WinPE based bootable disk. However, most of the functions are not available under Linux based bootable CD, so we recommend you to create the WinPE bootable CD first. The comparison of the available functions between these two types of disc is as follows.
