I guess EaseUs just forget totrim down that functionality, or figured to find a way to squeeze more money out of the product rolleyes.gif

P.S. The download link from filehorse doesn't work for me, it downloads a 260k corrupted file.
I'm now downloading from here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/EASEUS-Todo-Backup.shtml

I'm archiving mine right now lol. I am not going to let that free WinPE functionality get away from me!

hello Sean.. hope you have been well!... got a question.. my mancave just burned down ..where i do costom car repairs and service and photo shoots as well.. i lost my laptop in the fire.. a mac book pro 17"..i have pulled the SSD HD out, a fujitsu 128 SSD.... and after a few days drying it and blowing sook and ash from the fire , i installed it into my recent PC build ... it is seen in disk management so i am confident i can retrieve my data and images off of it and use it as a data storage HD for my images and photoshop scratch disk thank god... but it is MAC.... i need to access by either converting it to a dynamic drive or ? .... help in windows says it will work as a dynamic drive but i will lose the OS (mac 10x snowmonkeynosepicker or whatever it is)...... and i am reluctant to convert it to dynamic without picking your brain first to know if i have options.. like somehow accessing it as is and dual booting to see my whole laptop computer and OS .. or could i lose all my data or just the OS or ?...anywho.... looking forward to your imput before i proceed thanx !

Sorry to hear that, hope everything is fine and no one got hurt or anything.

Try transmac: http://www.asy.com/sharetm.htm

Or you can boot off a linux live CD and transfer the data from the SSD to another drive in your system that way.

Then you can format it when done.

I don't know why the program isn't staying installed but it might be incompatible with win7, the compatibility install mode should help with that.

before i install those old software i set on win xp sp3 compatibility ? on the kit ?
i checked this solution after i install on the .exe and doesnt work. even my drivers for hd 6850 have the same situation. very strange :-|

Right click the installer > properties > compatibility > run in comparability mode for Win XP SP3.

What software is it exactly you are having issues with?

Wait your new HD 6850 is having driver issues too? Did you not install the right ones for Windows 7 64-bit?
post #2596 of 5384
yap, the drivers for Windows 7 64-bit. and about software that dont work, there are old apps like "fast tracker", "jeskola buzz" and stuff like. music production software. anyway i think this computer is cursed.
the usual error is c:\users\my name\appdata\local\temp\xxx.tmp is not a valid win 32 application.(for sum music software kit but sometime for .exe files, t00)
xxx.tmp = always a random "name" like ea3f.tmp
about hd 6850 drivers - they are installed but i cant acces catalyst control center sumtimes or very slow...
wait, right now i have iastorUI.exe is not a valid win32 application. (intel rapid storage tech) - even if i cant acces the exe in device manager everythin` is ok
but i dont like this kind of problems. i spend a lot of time with this instead workin and doin my hobby.

I archived my WinPE ISO and then installed the latest build again biggrin.gif

Suggestion: Add a small section "How to Backup / Restore GPT Disks" to the guide, and have that information there (EaseUS build 4.0.02) along with other backup/restore alternatives like Windows 7 Backup & linux DD thumb.gif

Dont do that. Reinstall Windows 7 with a checksum correct ISO from Microsoft MSDN. I have a feeling you installed using an infected ISO file.

Boot off the windows 7 installer, go into diskpart, select the disk, clean, then run the command convert MBR

I have a thread I am working on about it.

I will add a link to it and put it in the stickies when I am done: http://www.overclock.net/t/1227835/how-to-disk-and-partition-cloning-backup-restoration-migration

I plan to have guides for linux and other OSes and programs.

yea...I would try a re-install with one of the iso's in the op first...if you did use one then try re-downloading it and retrying.
