EaseUS – Review Of A Simple Data Recovery Service

EaseUS has been around since 2003 - and claims to be the best data recovery software available on the market.

However, with plenty of alternatives available, there is a huge amount of competition in this particular niche.

In my EaseUS review, I will see how it compares to the competition.

What is EaseUS?

EaseUS is a data recovery package - branded as the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard. There is definitely a professional slant to this software, with their services slightly targeted towards organizations. However, the ease of use and features make this a very solid option for home users as well.

The intention with EaseUS is to ensure that you can never lose your data - it is backed up in the cloud, should any emergencies arise.

Windows and Mac versions of EaseUS are available, which help you recover both accidentally deleted files and those inadvertently removed by programs. Business users will undoubtedly welcome the ability to retrieve the data from servers and RAID storage too.

For my EaseUS review, I did some digging to find out how good its features actually are - here's what I found:

EaseUS - Features

Before going into the features included with EaseUS, I just wanted to briefly mention some significant omissions.

You can't use an EaseUS package to clone your hard drive, nor make a bootable disk or USB to assist with start-up problems.

To be fair, you can clone your hard drive using a separate software package from the manufacturer, however, it would have been nice for it to have been included in the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.

Other lacking features is a way to include new recoverable file types and also recovering data from physical storage like CDs and DVDs.

However, there are loads of good things as well. There is a lot of functionality crammed into the EaseUS package, from scanning options, a variety of recovery packages, and some interesting cloning features. 

In terms of file types, there are no issues for EaseUS. It is compatible with pretty much everything that you would expect. For reference purposes, here is a list of all compatible file types:

Documents: Doc/Docx, Excel, PPT/PPTX, PDF.
Images: JPEG, PNG, PSD, AI, RAW.
Videos: MPEG-4, WMW, AVI, QuickTime.
Audio: MP3, WAV, Ogg, AAC, AIFF, AAC.
Archives: RAR, Zip, Gzip, Stuffit.

Personally, I found that the recovery process with this system is excellent. The interface for this software is aesthetically pleasing too, and I found navigating all of the options to be reasonably straightforward.

Data recovery is swift but lacks customization

One interesting aspect of the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard system is that unlike most data recovery sites, you have to do a full hard drive scan before using with the software.

Also, I did feel there was a lack of customization with the data recovery process. Other systems allow you to pick type of file you may wish to scan for (or at least indicate a specific folder), but no such options are available in EaseUS.

I also found it strange that you cannot scan the entire hard drive in a singular process, rather you have to select various partitions of the device.

Nonetheless, the performance of the software is decent, and I found the scanning process is pretty swift. A full scan of my computer was completed in under two hours, which I can assure you is well under par for the course! Many similar software solutions may take up to 3 hours, or maybe even longer.

Another point that I'd like to mention briefly is that the customer support for EaseUS is outstanding. Not only were agents responsive and knowledgeable, but the company also delivers a direct knowledge base including a user manual, searchable support articles, video tutorials, and a wide variety of information on its website.

Live chat also works really well and helps what is already an intuitive system.

EasyUS reviews of existing users, in general, are pretty mixed. People either love it or hate it - and there's not much in between. However, the company appears to be quick in giving responses and claiming responsibility when an issue occurs (which is always a good thing).

But now, let's have a look at another really important thing when testing this kind of service - security.

Is EaseUS Safe?

EaseUS isn’t as forthcoming with its security information as some companies in the sphere. However, in terms of safety, EaseUS can be considered a pretty secure solution. I was pleased that the company chose to adopt 256-bit SSL, and its encryption of files is also more than adequate.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard automatically encrypts all data for you, which is a welcome feature. The company also makes it easy for you to customize this process, meaning that encryption is particularly user-friendly.

Overall, EaseUS comes across as a safe solution. 

EaseUS Pricing

The full pricing details for EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard are impossible to summarize, as there are a vast number of EaseUS products available. However, what I can say is that EaseUS encourage users to purchase products for a longer term, rather than committing to a monthly subscription.

This can require a reasonably large initial payment, but it does work out to be cost-effective in the longer term.

For example, access to the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard costs $69.95 for Windows systems and $89.95 for Mac (which I can't seem to understand).

Other packages, including the EaseUS backup software, are sold in a similar fashion too.

Actually, the pricing of the EaseUS packages is actually pretty reasonable.

What's even better, is that you can always try their services before you buy. The company operates a 30-day trial period for both home and business users. This is always nice to see, and shows that they are confident in the service they provide.


Superb customer support
Fast backups
256-bit encryption
User-friendly system


Not very customizable
Weird lack of full drive scan
Pricing is a little inflexible, more expensive for Macs.

EaseUS Review Final Words

To summarise, I found the EaseUS backup solution to be fairly impressive.

EaseUS has concentrated on ensuring that the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is easy to use and operates straight out of the box, and they did a good job of doing so.

However, this user-friendly nature has been achieved while also sacrificing some of the functionality and customization that other packages and solutions provided.

Overall, I can certainly recommend EaseUS for home, and small business users. If afraid to take a risk, you may as well just take the 30-day free trial that they offer. What have you got to lose?

    DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!! Totally failed at recovery, they promise a 30 Day refund and I asked for a refund within 48 hours and they will not comply unless I give them access to my computer via a remote session — NO WAY!

    I’m simply trying to recover a deleted bookmark, but I guess its not simple at all. Even Recuva didn’t work, but something strange happened..when i ran recuva, I thought I say a date that corresponded with the date that the bookmark was deleted…then all of a sudden it disappeared. Any suggestions on how I can recover a deleted bookmark?

    Do NOT use this app, its dangerous for your OS! I simply tried to shrink my windows partition on my mac and what this app did is destroyed my macOS partition instead. I’m trying to recover it now, however I made a backup quite a while ago so I might lose a lot of data while doing this. They could at least make a warning that using the program is dangerous and might be harmful for your data and operating systems installed on your PC. Very frustrating experience, I’m regretting even trying it out.
