Easeus ToDo Backup Workstation 5.8 offered
« on: April 02, 2013, 07:16:10 AM »
It's on http://dottech.org/1...kup-workstation-5-8/

I used to rely on the snapshot feature on my Vista Machine, up to version 2 that was fine.  I cannot vouch for this version though, but this is the version with this feature (it's a Rollback kind of feature).

Thanks Merle
I'm thinking about it ...

Nice that commercial use is allowed. Has to be installed by Thursday though.

and it is recommendable to first learn what "centralized management" is about,
so you can un-check the option:

The setup also includes a "ISOExport_TRIAL.exe"!!!

Edit:
The setup made four (4) new entries to start with Windows!  :(

-you cannot opt out during installation
it is the company's WinPE builder.

Take note this giveaway includes Linux-based bootable recovery CD/DVD/USB but does not include WinPE-based bootable CD/DVD/USB.

If you create a boot CD with a Win PE trial, maybe it will work without limit...

Based on my experience of EaseUS Workstation and the way that giveaways in general work I thought I would offer a few thoughts that might help.
I have downloaded the file and run it but not to the point of installing as I have v4 installed and do not want to update at this time.
I offer no guarantees in regard to what I am about to say but I am pretty confident about it in my own mind.

As far as I can see apart from the change in name this is the normal EaseUS Workstation installer, I cannot see any addition which would indicate a date limitation.
Comparing it with version 5.0 which I also have you do not normally require an internet connection to install/activate the program you just enter the license key during installation.
In the event that there is a date limitation but you do not require a connection the solution is obvious.

In spite of this comment I would be amazed if the WinPE ISO is not included in this download.
Based on file size of the Trial version (108MB) which is 200MB smaller than this and does not include the ISO, no matter what other trials they might have included in this I cannot see how to explain the size difference if the ISO is not included.
The ISO size in v4 is 195MB+ which fits with this theory.

"centralized management" only applies if you are using the program in a network situation, then you need an addition program on the main computer for this to connect to.
I spent 25 years training to be an eccentric then I woke up one morning and realised that I'd cracked it.
I've not had to try since.

I wonder what happens if I click on thi
