A powerful tool for system migration! Paragon Virtualization Manager is a powerful tool to help you easily migrate a Windows-based computer to a virtual environment (P2V) of a major virtualization software vendor, regardless of how or where the computer is being backed up.
It also makes a crippled system, previously transferred to virtual hardware by a third party tool, 100% bootable.

I?ve already seen Paragon was giving Partition Manager Pro for free for a short while. I?ve downloaded and installed it successfully. Those who missed that day, can get it till October 25.
Here is the link: Paragon Partition Manager 9.5 As I can understand, they?ve just opened freeware downloads page. And sometimes commercial software will appear there for free. Very friendly I think for me it?s just like I earn 80 bucks for nothing (professional version of Partition Manager 10 costs $79.95)

So, what do we have here (taken from Partition Manager 10 site, but it works for 9.5):
Advanced Partitioning Operations: Enlarge NTFS partitions without rebooting Windows or interrupting your work, repartition hard disks without data loss, redistribute free space between partitions, merge two partitions to one etc.
Apple? BootCamp Support: Redistribute unused space between Mac? OS X and Windows partitions (great for me!)
Initial Backup Facility
Safe Defragmentation Mode
Etc.
Full feature list is here . The difference is that 9.5 doesn?t support Windows 7.
The program runs on Windows 2000, XP and Vista (32 or 64 bit).
And Paragon provides user support only for the promo period. And only on Twitter . No WinPE included.
You will need to input your email on registration page to get a free serial ? that is your only payment for the soft.

Actually - they don't claim it - but it does support Windows 7.

I have been using for a while on my 7 x64 - it works perfectly.

It is exactly the same build as the PM10

The only you don't get - is the WinPE disc and Adaptive restore feature. Run off the bootable Linux/dos cd from within the program to get it in bootable form.

It doesn't "officially" support 7 - but I have no trouble running using it on 7 x64. The partitioning rules for Vista and 7 are the same.

The bit that doesn't recognize 7 - therefore won't add it in - is the bcd corrector - which is in the boot corrector module on the bootdisc. You are not likely to use that anyhow.

Hi, I?m about to commite suicide so I just wanted to make a final query before I do it.

I have a 320 GB western digital HD, it has windows 7 (x64) in one partition and data in the other.
I used paragon partiton manager to redistribute the free space (don?t ask me why didn?t I use the W7 features please). It did, but the partition with all the data was "not formatted". It showed the exact used and free space (so no data loss) but I couldn?t have acces to it. I manged to convert it to NTFS... still showed the right used and free space, but no luck having acces to the files.

So I used the W7 function to check the disk... and after it finishes it the partition with the data is empty, the OS partition is intact, but the other one is empty.

I tried everything, so I?m not actually asking for a solution, my question is:
Given the fact that I haven?t erased the partition or deteled it or have done anything other than redistribute the free space... will a professional HD recovery be able to restore the filesystem or the files?

Thanks in advance.

First from the Wizards tab, run Partition Recovery Wizard to see what it finds. When you identify the lost partition by size and space usage, tick the box next to it and restore it.

If this fails, use the Data Recovery Wizard or Recuva data Recovery software.

In the future, always keep your files backed up externally and ask here for exact steps to repartition or "redistribute free space" (whatever that means).

Hi!

I just found the new release of free backup software from Paragon.. it might be one to test, although I'm guessing it doesn't have much in the way of features.. did anyone know anything about this software?

Below what Paragon says about it -

"Easy step to total PC safety. FREE!
Backing up your data is like an insurance, you never have to worry if disaster strikes. Now thereís no more excuse for lost data Ė this insurance costs you nothing! If your system and data are safe now, keep them that way with Drive Backup 9.0 Express.

Now with that along with the Acronis True Image(for WD drives free version) along with the full retail version of the same I can make some comparisons. The initial backup using the custom option of selecting the host drive and where to store the image was started following the installation and system restart required.

Note it will immediately ask for a super large external drive when first starting it up to back up all internal drives installed in one super large backup. Simply close that out for selecting one or more drives depending on how many you have by leaving them checked off and unchecking any not to be included.

Hi Guys,
I have just used Paragon HD Manager v.6 to resize my partition on a WinXP machine and I have lost some space on the C: drive.

The setup was:
C: drive 24GB
D: drive 56gb

What I did was:
- Reduced in size the D: drive to 20gb, and dragged to increase C: drive the remaining space between the two partitions. Now the D: drive is 20gb, however the C: drive is in a mess, I still only have 2gb of space available, Paragon and System manager report partion as 55GB, however Windows explorer reports it as still 24gb with only 2gb free space.

How do I recover the space I just created? Any ideas?

Paragon Net Burner-2-0 is a unique utility to ?share? a CD/DVD/BD burner over the network and remotely make a CD/DVD/BD recordable device available for use by other networked computers. It gives users the ability to record CDs/DVDs/BDs without having a local burner device. This solution is extremely helpful for notebook users without CD/DVD/BD burning devices onboard.

Easy-to-use even for inexperienced users.
User-friendly wizards will help you to mount (or remove) a remote optical drive in only a few clicks. Access the mounted drives no differently than your local devices.

Extremely useful for notebooks without optical drive.
Paragon Net Burner is a great solution for notebook users who have no optical drive onboard (subnotebooks, netbooks, ultraportable laptops). Mount a CD/DVD/BD drive located on another machine in your local network and grab, record or master CDs/DVDs/BDs without having these devices locally. Net Burner is must-have for home users who have both subnotebook(s) and PCs ? now you can forget about tiresome transferring of files from one PC to another to burn them. With Net Burner, if you take your subnotebook on a business trip, you can burn CD/DVD/BD discs using another PC.

Hello:

I have been testing Paragon free and it looks promising. However, a lot of people like me are experiencing problems using the recovery CD Linux based that it is created with the free version of Paragon. It is basically unusable.

Does any one know how to build your bootable CD using WINPE or Linux?
I understand that WINPE is not free and you need to build it from your own windows environment. However, I know people build their own with many different applications. Does anyone have instructions how to do this with WinPe or Linux.

I can buy the paid version and do it. I just want to customize the recovery CD and I am only planning to use Paragon for one function.


thanks

Hi,

currently using Paragon HD Manager 2010 Pro and i'm curious about the Boot Manager feature that it has.

I currently have Ubuntu 10.10 x64 dual booted with my Windows 7 X64. I installed Windows 7 first, then ubuntu.

When i boot up my computer it uses GRUB which is the loader for Ubuntu, and i can select Windows 7 from this menu.

What i want to know is, will paragon boot manager basically do the same thing for me? I know GRUB is doing this for me, but when i update the kernel in ubuntu it adds un-needed entries at boot which is tacky and ugly and i dont like it and i'm nervous about configuring GRUB =)

I have my machine backed up so if i mess anything up, i'm safe. I figured i'd post my question here to see if i can avoid restoring from backup or maybe get some insight that will blow me away and make me feel stupid. -Fingers Crossed.-

Hi all
This might not be an issue for you - especially as it looks like a great FREE program but the amount of backups and restores I do I need it to work FAST.

Laptop - W7 X-64 partition (the OS not my data) 50 GB approx 27 GB used.

Paragon backup time 58 Mins
Acronis True Image 14 Mins

Both run at Max compression.

Although I have to PAY for acronis for me the vastly superior speed its worth it.

Don't get me wrong Paragon Backup seems fine if you can afford the time - and it also gives you a bootable "bare Metal" recovery.

Some of the "RAW" options might be interesting but I can't say I've ever needed or used this type of process.

Up to you -- Good software but seems a tad too slow compared with the commercial competition.

However - in any case please guys ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR SYSTEM (and data - inc music collections etc).

Cheers

Hardly know where to begin. I used Paragon Drive Backup 9.5 Free, started it up and let it backup my windows 7 with all my installed apps on it. Something went wrong or else I did something wrong. Now, I only have the drive this software created and my C: drive with windows 7 on it is apparently gone!! Can't find it anywhere and not even a sign of it. Am stuck with the backup made by Paragon. Now my drive C: is this *&&^# Paragon backup and only 160GB free out of 193GB. Where has my 500GB Hitachi HD gone. Oh I know it is still in my computer but it does not show in the Computer icon on my desktop. What confounds this even more is I only had an Acronis Home 11 image file saved on an external HD that is a March image. Afraid I know what you may say about this---nothing to do but re-install. I surely hope someone has a better plan than that. As usual, TIA.
BTW, after the fact but I now learn that my version of Acronis does not support Windows 7. I am using an ISO CD I burned some time ago and that is the way I accessed my Acronis backups on the the external HD. Help--please. That ISO CD may just let me continue using the Acronis version I now have and until I can buy the 2010 version.

Hi all;
Recently, i have just completed a clean installation of Win 7 and have downloaded all my favourite drivers & software. Hence, i would like to treat this as a "factory/ stock" copy and to create a full system back of everything on my hard disk drive and burn it into a few DVDs. Hopefully, these will be bootable DVDs whereby i just need to boot from these DVDs to recover to my present state should my Hard Disk fails.

Question:
Can i do the above by using Paragon Free Back Up and Recovery 2013? So far, this is what have been done.

Choose option #1 -----> and proceed to burn everything in the Hard Disk.


Then, i just burn this into a few DVDs.


Hence, are these bootable DVDs? Whereby should my HDD fails, then, i can just boot from these DVDs to my present state?

Hi Everyone,

I have Paragon's Free 2011 Backup program, and also Seagate's free DiscWizard program. Both have always worked reasonably well for me, requiring only about 5 or 6 minutes to do a disc image of my Patriot Inferno 60 GB SSD drive (only around 25 GBs of data) to a Samsung 1TB drive running in an external enclosure, fed by eSATA.

But ... since June 1, 2011 the backups have been excruciatingly SLOW to run. In fact, my usual 5 minute run is now around 2 hours and 20 minutes!!!

Has anyone else run into this strange behaviour lately? I thought it might have been a Windows 7 Update that messed something up, so I uninstalled the only updates that have arrived since June 1 (a few MS Visual C 2005 updates) but this has not made any difference.

Any help is much appreciated.

A:Paragon 2011 Free Now Takes Too Long to Backup

Since I posted this message, I have done a fresh backup with EaseUS Todo Backup 2.5.1 Free and also did a restore using the Linux boot disc. It worked PERFECTLY!

It took about 25 minutes to backup, which is slow in my opinion (though much faster than Paragon or Seagate lately), and only 11 minutes and 13 seconds to restore. This program also lets you schedule your backups, which is exactly what I wanted. So, until I can get some accurate feedback on why Paragon and Seagate have freaked out on me, I will be using this free EaseUS Todo program.

PS Win 7 did a complete image backup with its own Backup and Restore program tonight at 4 am. This consumed all of 10 minutes from beginning to end, and created an image file 21.6 GB in size. Thus it is clear that the only image backup programs that are running truly slow are the Paragon and Seagate versions. The EaseUS Todo program took around 25 minutes, and is probably slow as well, but not 2 1/2 to 3 hours slow like the former two!

Does anyone else have an SSD with about 23 gigs on it, which they are using Todo to image? How long does it take for you?

It is a big download because it includes an excellent bootable disc.

As usual with Paragon , though you have t d/l the app. , and get the product key today - once you have them , you can reinstall as often as you like.
Unzip the large file, run the setup.exe that GOTD wraps it in - then it will extract the actual installer direct to your C drive ( by default - but you can change that).

Copy the installer and your product key somewhere safe - for future use.

Hello,
I have used Paragon Free version for Windows 8 once before. Don't recall anything special... I am using the USB to my WD External drive. It took over 6 hours, and I don't know how much longer, as I went to sleep, to backup 26GB.
Is this normal? The drive is used on other computers with Paragon and Macrium and W7.
Thanks for any insight!

A:Extremely long backup times w/ Paragon Free for W8

I don't do backups. I only do system images so I can't say for sure; however, it also depends greatly on the hardware speeds involved so let me give you an example of a how long it takes for me to create a system image on two different rigs and you can decide for yourself:

Rig1: creating a 17-18Gb image:
Using SATA III SSD to SATA II SSD, create System Image process takes about 5 minutes using inherent Win 7 imaging.

Rig2: creating a 16-17GB image:
Using SATA II SSD to SATA II hard drive, create System Image process takes 8-9 minutes using Macrium Reflect Free.

Now, you have to evaluate your own hardware and the best way to do that is compare my apples to your apples otherwise you can wait for someone else to respond that does true backups. Good luck.

Paragon is very good for servers or situations where you have to make frequent backups. The writing of differential backups is extremely fast (in my test just a couple of minutes). But as usual with those advanced programs, you need to do some learning. To purchase it is pretty expensive - $80 last time I looked. The product key for my last free version that I won in a contest expired after some time. So you may expect the same with this freebie.

Im in desperate need of help guys. I was using Paragon Partition manager to ``Install a new OS``. It deactivated all my drives including c:\ apart from partition D:\ which it made active and a primary NFTS partition and made me reboot. I planned to install my new OS but my CD was corrupt! I tried to log back in but i just got the message ``NTLDR MISSING``. I have played about with the BIOS setup, i even visited this site: http://tinyempire.com/notes/ntldrismissing.htm to try and create a rebootable USB to reboot my system and login. Thankfully, it worked, but after the windows loading screen it shows a message `autochk not found - skipping` then the screen turns blue and a message comes up with the error `STOP C000021a` appears. Thats the only thing thats now stopping me from loggin in to my computer. Can somone please help, i need your guidance urgently, thankyou.

A:Ahh! Paragon partition manager, NTLDR missing and c000021a error!

What was or is the new OS that you are trying to install?

When you used Paragon were you trying to make a drive D: to install the new OS on this drive?

When trying to install the new OS what drive did you try to designate and the install drive or did you just go thru with the default drive?

Hi,

Please do the following:

Download Combofix from either of the links below. You must rename it before saving it.
Save it to your desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, delete it, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved and renamed following this process directly to your desktop**
If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:Tools->Options->Main tab
Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".


Link 1
Link 2


During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:





--------------------------------------------------------------------It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.
Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.

-----------------------------------------------------------Double click on Combo-Fix.exe & follow the prompts.When finished, it will produce a report for you.
Please post the "C:\Combo-Fix.txt" for further review.
**Note: Do not mouseclick combo-fix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

My Windows XP laptop was attacked by a program called Personal Guard 2009 on the morning of September 8, 2009 at or around 11:00 AM. If you don?t know what it looks like, then I can tell you that it mimics Windows Security Center, and claims that your PC has no virus protection. It puts this little booger in the programs tray:hxxp://picasaweb.google.com/aaron.leblanc1/PersonalGuard2009#5379181265958967890It simultaneously runs this executable at C:\Program Files\Personal Guard 2009\personalguard.exe which pops up in its own window and looks like anti spyware software:hxxp://picasaweb.google.com/aaron.leblanc1/PersonalGuard2009#5379218048032426338It proceeds to run a phony scan of the HDD and spits out a long report of false threats to the PC. ALSO every now and then it will blast a popup that claims the PC is under attack from hackers and gives the option to either buy the full version of Personal Guard 2009 or ?continue unprotected.? I fought with this program until about 5:00 AM on September 9. As of the time of this writing, I have met with very little success:1)I closed out the Personal Guard window, the false attack window and the fake windows security center window, and opened the task manager (ctr alt del) went to the ?processes? tab and right clicked on the process with the image name ?Personal Guard 2009? and hit ?end process tree? then hit ok.2)I opened control panel and ran the ?Add or Remove Programs? utility.

Hello All-

Sometime between uninstalling Norton and installing AVG I managed to get a copy of Personal Guard 2009 infecting my computer. I ran a full scan by AVG but that didn't get rid of it.

I downloaded and ran a full scan with Antimalware Bytes. It found several infected files. I clicked on the "remove infected files" button. It told me I needed to reboot my computer, so I did. I got to my desktop and then got the "blue screen". I shut down again and restarted. This time it didn't get that far before the blue screen appeared. I restarted again, attempting "safe mode", but immediately got the blue screen.

I am running XP.

HELP!

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. Double click the exe file.
If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.



Click the image to enlarge it


In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are unchecked Sections
IAT/EAT
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)

Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it in reply.

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

If it still crashes, try running the scan in Safe mode.

I have no idea how this "Personal Guard 2009" demon got into my computer...it's a nightmare! I've tried finding a solution online, but nothing has worked. I've used a bunch of malware scanners, but they'd just scan and not remove the problem. I also tried SmitfraudFix--it kept stating "access denied" but ran through normally and said the scan was successful. However, it was not. I did run it in normal mode because Safe Mode isn't working. I've tried numerous times and it just won't work -- I don't know why. But it says its b/c of a recent hardware or software change, which I'm assuming is the virus itself.

It has been paralyzing any attempt at getting rid of it! In the midst of making this post, I tried to force my laptop into safe mode by doing what was said here: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...ng-the-f8-key/
Except NOW, my computer won't load in ANY mode. It just loops the screen with all the mode options. I'm BEGGING for any sort of help with all of this! ... Just to be clear, my laptop's OS is Windows XP, and I can't get past the start-up mode options screen (I'm currently on a different computer) and I don't know what to do to get it to function again.

I do apologize for being a totally ignorant n00b, but I'd really appreciate ANY bit of help anyone has to offer!

My computer recently did some automatic windows updates, afterwhich I began having a very annoying problem. For some time I've been using AVG as my security solution with no problems and I'm content to continue to do so. Consequently I had disabled the virus protection component in Windows Security Center and this has not been a problem until this most recent update, which has apparently installed a "trial version" of a very annoying and persistent thing called "Personal Guard 2009", which is apparently the Microsoft virus protection software, or so it claims to be.

I see in All Programs under my start menu that this "new program" has been installed, which is unusual for a typical windows update. In any case, I have tried repeatedly now to uninstall this ******* of a program and it appears to uninstall, only to reappear, or reinstall itself a few seconds later. Also very annoying is that this program continually throws pop ups at me saying "warning, Windows Security Center notes that your version of Personal Guard 2009 is not active. Please activate immediatly to protect your computer". Of course it comes down to me having to go pay for this piece of crap that has invaded my system.

It would appear to me that a virus has invaded my Windows Security Center. I would certainly hope that this is not Microsofts doing. HHHHEEEEELLLLLPPPPP! How can I get rid of Personal Guard 2009???

Personal Guard Virus has my computer need help. I do not know when it was downloaded but it has constantly restarted my computer and shut down my norton. I was able to run a quick scan and I got rid of something but it wasn't Personal Guard. My computer stopped restarting though. Also Norton seems to be fighting it since every couple of seconds it states that auto protect has blocked Suspicious.MH690.A.

Hey,

Somehow Personal Guard 2009 has weaseled its way onto my computer. I've taken a look through the forums, and most of the solutions are specific to the individual computer, so if I could get some help to remove this beastly thing, that would be great.

Also, since I've had this problem before, is there anyway to protect my computer against these sorts of viruses?

Thank you! Here's my log:

I have no idea how this "Personal Guard 2009" demon got into my computer...it's a nightmare! I've tried finding a solution online, but nothing has worked. I've used a bunch of malware scanners, but they'd just scan and not remove the problem. I also tried SmitfraudFix--it kept stating "access denied" but ran through normally and said the scan was successful. However, it was not. I did run it in normal mode because Safe Mode isn't working. I've tried numerous times and it just won't work -- I don't know why. But it says its b/c of a recent hardware or software change, which I'm assuming is the virus itself.

It has been paralyzing any attempt at getting rid of it! In the midst of making this post, I tried to force my laptop into safe mode by doing what was said here: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...ng-the-f8-key/
Except NOW, my computer won't load in ANY mode. It just loops the screen with all the mode options. I'm BEGGING for any sort of help with all of this! ... Just to be clear, my laptop's OS is Windows XP, and I can't get past the start-up mode options screen (I'm currently on a different computer) and I don't know what to do to get it to function again.

I do apologize for being a totally ignorant n00b, but I'd really appreciate ANY bit of help anyone has to offer!

Thanks.

I have obtained a copy of Personal Guard 2009 on my computer and am not having luck getting rid of it. I tried installing Malwarebytes a few different ways and it is removing the exe before I can get to it to rename it. I also tried booting in Safe Mode with Networking and the computer just rebooted and didn't finish booting in Safe Mode. My anti-virus also hasn't been able to deal with all of it (though it did remove some things). Thank you for your help!
