I used EaseUs Todo Backup to backup and recover several computers. Every computer has only one disk. In a few cases one had an already existing partition layout as follows: 1. Windows7 boot partition (100MB), 2. System partition (50GB), 3. Data partition (200GB).

My original backup contained a clean Windows 7 system with the first small boot partition, and a 40GB system partition. I tried many times to restore that in a way that I could keep the third, data partition untouched, and restore the backup only to the first two partitions. I had no success at all. Every time in the restore procedure I am prompted with the screen that shows that my data partition will be lost, and I will have a system partition with 250GB size, so the new system partition swallows the existing data partition.

I had no luck with their support so far either.

EDIT: To clarify the problem:

This is the disk/partition backup layout:


This is the target disk layout before restore:


This is what I would like after I restore the backup to the target disk (restored data marked with capital X):


This is what I get with Todo Backup, no matter what options I try to use:


If Todo Backup cannot solve this, is there an alternate solution?

    I don't understand the question. What you want isn't possible with the software your using.

  • It is hard to understand what exactly do you want. Could you make you question more clear?

  • I added some example about what I'd like to achieve, the question should be clearer now. Hope you have any idea, or any other suggested software with this feature. Feb 19, 2014 at 15:28
