EASEUS ToDo Backup 2.0 released: now supports file-based backup

December 31, 2010 – 11:19 by in News Print Share No Comment

EASEUS has released version 2.0 of its free back-up tool, EASEUS ToDo Backup. It’s a major update sporting a redesigned wizard-driven user interface and a major new feature in the form of a file-based backup tool, which can back up specific folders or file types.

EASEUS ToDo Backup was launched last year as a simple drive-imaging tool, which meant it could backup and restore entire partitions only. Version 2.0 adds  support for incremental and scheduled backups alongside the new file-based backup component, all of which is wrapped up in a revamped user interface. There’s also a back-up management screen where individual tasks can be reviewed, edited, updated and deleted.

The file-based backup tool showcases the new wizard-based approach: first, give it a name (the option to make it incremental is found here – ticking this ensures only changed files are backed up, speeding up the process). Next, select what to back up – either specific folders or types of file. Pick a back-up destination (local or network hard drives only), choose a schedule and let the backup proceed.

The scheduling option – which is another new feature – is accessible from the Home screen and can be applied to disk images as well as file-based backups. Available schedules include “Later” (one-time only at a specific time and date), daily, weekly, monthly or on a specific event, such as system startup.

EASEUS ToDo Backup 2.0 is freeware, and requires Windows 2000 or later.
