Today, I wanted to resize the Windows partition, so I tried some softwares including EaseUs Partition Master free edition. I made sure not to be tricked to install their other complementary software with it, and I unchecked the customer feedback (i.e., marketing surveillance).
First, it could not resize the C drive as I wanted. Secondly, it started automatically on Windows startup, and wanted to "clean some junk files" for me. Yeah, and notice that EaseUs is a Chinese company, Cheng Du. What is wrong with Chinese companies and spams? They always try this.
|A partition manager wants to start automatically to clean your system.|
|Yeah, improve the system performance... right.|
Remember ES File Explorer (by a Chinese company)? I liked it until, they tried to sneak in some system cleaning feature to a file manager. Why does a file manager want to clean my system? Also, I have found that ES File Explorer is constantly running in the background, submitting usage data to their server through ADB log. The Go Dev team is another famous Chinese Android developer. I liked the Go SMS and Keyboard at first, but then they started spam me with unnecessary announcements, features etc. So I ended up deleting all their products. So many Chinese developers are practicing this.
Do not install EaseUs products unless you want to lose your personal data, or be scammed.
