In backup, you can select Either Disk or partition backup or file backup. Depending upon your selection, it provides you more options or configurations on your selected type of backup.

It also provides you inbuilt tools like tool to check backup Image Integrity, image mounting utility, tool to build Bootable media like emergency Disk on USB drive, CD or DVD. It also provides tools to clone disks or partitions or even wipe out the data on any drive.

It took less than 8 mins for backing my 50 gb hard drive with approximately 10 GB of data without any compression. There was no memory consumption issue as it happens with some of backup tools.
I was unable to find answer to my own curiosity about a essential feature and hence emailed the EASEUS guys my question. I am still to hear from them.
How it will do the recovery of system partition lets say C drive on which operating system OS is installed as I could not find a Bootable version of todo backup?
Here is the reply I got from EASEUS
