    I have used Easy to Use to backup for some time.  Suddenly tonight when I go to open the program I get a user account control box asking me if I want to let the program loader.exe  make changes to my computer.  It also is suddenly doing the same on my wife’s computer.

      Can you give a link to the website for the software?

      Was there a recent update?

        The notice, is:

        User Account Control:  (I assume from Windows Security, I am wondering if a recent virus threat update from Wednesday night or Thursday morning caused it not to recognize the publisher)

        It says:  “Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to your device?”  Options are “Yes  No”   At that point you have three options, click yes, or No or close the box before you can do anything else.

        The file location is:  C:\program files(x86) EaseUS\Todo Backup\bin\loader.exe    It’s date is from 2019 which is about when I would have installed the program.  This is also the file the short cute starts.

        Here is a link to EasytoUse website:  https://www.easeus.com/backup-software/  We are running paid for copies but have not updated to a newer version since we bought it.

      More Information:

      The User Account Control notice is yellow.

      It occurs to us that in the past we did get a notice, where the user account control notice was blue but basically said “Do you want to allow this app  from publisher  XXX to make changes to your device.”  Then “Verified User XXX

      I think we were so use to clicking yes that we never thought about it to the message changed color and referred to an unknown publisher.  Still it seems funny that this changed all of a sudden, so I am interest in any thoughts or guidance.

      Unable to make a Boot disk on USB
      I just purchased a new Samsung 64 GB Flash Drive and a SanDisk 128GB USB stick.I was planning on using as my Emergency disk (Boot Drive) but have been unsuccessful in doing so. I followed the instructions on your web site and it appears nothing is getting written to the drive, and even so I tried to boot from it with no luck.
      Computer: Lenovo Laptop Windows 10, 21H2EaseUS build 20220801
      USB infoUSBFAT32Used 667 MBFree 59GBError check good, no errors
      I selected:Create Emergency DiskBoot Disk Location, I selected USB Samsung Flash Drive D:Selected CreateScreen says Creating WinPE ISO, Exporting WinPE ISO
      Then it says device needs to be formatted, do you want to continue, and I select OK.then it finishes.
      When Complete I do not see anything writted to drive. I tried to boot from it anyway with no luck.
      Seems when I try doing it again (Create Emergency Disk) it goes through the same thing, including it says drive needs to be formatted. again, which I do but the results are the same. I selected show hidden files and I cannot see any files on stick. I made a bootable CD and it worked fine. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks

      Microsoft Recovery Drive (Operating System)

      You will need several flash drives for bootable recovery drives. When your system won’t boot, these will boot. Flash drives are fragile. Test early and often to see if they will boot. If a flash drive won’t boot, create another bootable flash drive. The key word here is bootable.

      Recovery Drive

      In the search box in the lower-left-hand corner, type: recovery drive.

      I’ve found building these flash drives is slow, so be patient.

      Test Bootable Recovery Drive

      After building your bootable recovery drives, test them. There are two parts to the test:

      1. Configure your system so it boots to the device. This process takes a bit of finagle to reboot and locate the “right” key to enter the BIOS, and set the boot priority. The correct key for me on this machine is “Del”; your key may be different depending on your system configuration.

      2. Make sure your bootable recovery drive actually boots. If it doesn’t boot, build another bootable recovery drive.
