License software - free backup, partition freeware, data recovery

A: FREE from Paragon Until July 12

Great catch! richc46

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!

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 there’s no more excuse for lost data – this insurance costs you nothing! If your system and data are safe now, keep them that way with Drive Backup 9.0 Express. This simple easy to use software doesn't ask you bewildering questions-it just backs up your data when and where you tell it, and recovers whenever disaster happens."

Free on GAOTD today.

A lot of useful tools including partition undelete ( works very well), password blanker, File Transfer Wizard.

Those all seem to work on Vista and 7.

There is also a Registry Editor and bcd corrector. These two only seem to work on Vista - but will do no harm to 7 - it just doesn't get recognised.

It is an .iso that burne itself to cd.

Definitely worth getting for disaster recovery.

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

A:Recovery CD for paragon free, win or linux

WinPE stands for Windows PreExecution Environment and is part of downloadable Win 7 software, the WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit).

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 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

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.

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.

The difference is that 9.5 doesn’t support Windows 7.



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.

Terriffic opportunity to get a great piece of software - Paragon are the best in Hard Disk Management.

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.

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!
Glenn

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.

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?

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.

A:EMpty partition after redistributing free space with paragon manager

Use free Partition Wizard bootable CD which has helped with hundreds of complicated partitioning operations here without a single failure. Partition Wizard

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).

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.

As far as I know, the free upgrade to 10 is going away in a few hours.

I speculate that there will be at least a few posts asking how to get the free upgrade after the offer's expiration.

(That may include some who do an upgrade through means other than Windows Update, and find that MS won't activate their copies.)

So who will be first to step up to the plate?

(I almost count the poster who hasn't upgraded yet, and who will be out of town through the end of the free period. Not quite the same as someone who is feverishly trying to do the upgrade at the last nanosecond, though.)

I already know about the trick where you update then revert, and the computer you updated on will be able to upgrade again for free after July 29th, but what if I won't have the computer I want to upgrade until after this date?

I'm getting a MacBook Air in August. I like how any programs made for Macs will work (for the most part) because each Mac has set specs, but I'm not a huge fan of the Mac OS. But then I learned about dual booting on Mac, and so I thought that if I dual booted Mac and Windows I'd get the best of both worlds. But then I learned that Windows 10 will only be free until July 29th, so is there a way I can 'reserve' the copy until then? Or will I just have to pay the $119 if I really want to do it?

I thought it would be a good idea in keeping with the overall goal of this site to start a thread to give people a list of legal and secure sites for downloading free or dirt-cheap movies, music and software/games.
I believe this would helpful in terms of not just telling people not to visit/support pirating websites,
but to also give them other alternatives so that there wouldn't be a temptation to go there anyway
(And also for people like me that Don't want to steal, but also don't want to pay more than I have to)
 
Master list of sites for free/dirt cheap movies, music and free/free to try software:
 
Music
 
Open Music Archive

Contains music with expired copyright according to UK copyright law, which states that the copyright expires 70 years after the author's death.
As such, some of the music may be considered "pirated" in countries with longer copyright periods.

That is a good question.
When I think about it Hulu does have movies.

I had excellent luck using Paragon B&R 2011 on my XP machine. It worked great and I could either pick and choose the files to restore..or restore the entire drive image.
 
But when I installed Paragon W7-64 on my new notebook, it doesn't seem the same at all. I got the image made (to a portable HD) but I see nowhere to create a boot CD like I used to get my full XP image restored when I replaced my old XP machine's Hard Drive.
 
I must be missing something. I don't see how to do it if I needed to restore the image onto a new HD.
 
Is there an easier free B&R program out there.
 
Thanks
 
I was going to use the Win 7 backup but it wouldn't do it because my portable HD was formatted to a different type, Fat 32.

A:Is Paragon 7-64 bit that different than XP was? It doesn't seem the same.

I looked around for a couple others to try. Seems that they all had issues, so I guess I'll go through the Manual and see what I'm doing wrong with the win7 64 version. The XP 32 version seemed so much easier.
 
I'm just imagining trying to load a backed up image to a new hard drive and don't see how it could be done. It was so easy when the older version of Paragon allowed you to create a boot cd and work from there to do the restore.
 
Could it be that I would be able to restore the image from my portable HD by having it boot to it first? (no boot cd required?)

Now that I have downloaded Paragon Backup and completed backup to My Books external hard drive I am stuck on stupid again.
When going to My Books EH and clicking on a specific file, in fact all files, it goes to Windows Cannot open this file and gives me two choices to use the web to find program to open or use a program listed on my computer to find the correct program to open it.
What is your recommendation?
I have previously down a backup from Vista Home Premium tp My Books EH and don't have any problem opening and viewing these back up files. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for getting me this far.....just a few more posts and I will be there!

A:Paragon Backup ?

You have to access the files through Paragon Backup. I haven't installed that yet, so don't know if you can select individual files to restore, but the help files for PB should help you there. There should also be an option to create a recovery disk of some kind.

A friend of mine gave me Paragon Drive Copy 8.5 to migrate the files from my C: drive (with 0 bytes free space) to my D: drive (89.1 GB free space). However, I do not know how to do it. Can anyone help me? Please, it's an emergency. Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

First off, if you've no drive space left you aren't going to be able to use Paragon. The easiest way to move files is to use Windows Explorer. Select the files you want to move then press Edit on the menu bar and select the Move to folder option.

I am trying to figure out if I back up my c drive will it include the first two volumes, one I believe is for the drivers and the other for factory reset. I am not sure though, These partitions were put in by Dell.

I plan on using Paragon Backup & Recovery 2014. I have used Paragon before, it was the 2010 version, I BUed my XP system with it. The HDD crashed, I replaced the HDD with some help from my nephew, and used the paragon 2010 via snapshot to restore my OS, only problem was it did not copy the hidden partition on xp.

Will I have the same problem with my new Dell W-7 insprion premium 64 bit when I Back it up. I will use a snapshot, and also do a clone. Can these first two partitions which I believe are for factory restore & drivers be BUed & cloned in case of a HDD crash.

A:What are the first two partitions for, can I BU them with Paragon...

You can select any of those volumes, or all , even unlettered ones.

If you want to be certain, you can always make an image with another free program, this one is excellent, small and fast, too FREE Backup software for Windows 7, 8 and Server 2008 R2, 2012

Hi All

I've been using Paragon 2011 for about 4 weeks now.I initially made a full image of "sys res" and my "windows" partition and then set a scheduled differential backup to run every Monday which it has been doing.
Today I thought I would make a full new backup and start the process again but when I look in the previous backup folder I only have one differential backup folder.It seems it has been overwriting the old differentials with the new ones.I expected to have four.
How can I stop the differentials from overwriting each other

Thankyou Danny

I have a Dell Notebook E6520. I want a to migrate the image from my HDD to a new SSD.
I want the easy way. I see Paragon Migrate OS to SSD does it and I'll buy it.
I wish I could just clone it like I do now for back up purposes with an extra media bay 2nd HDD. But it seems cloning isn't done much with SSD's.
So how can I do this. I read I have to change the settings in the Bios from Sata to ACHI. Do I do this before I hook up the SSD and run Paragon?
So much confusing info because of issues that I've been reading. Maybe I've been reading too much.

A:Paragon Migrate OS to SSD

AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

Before cloning the OS over to your SSD, I would not only change the settings in Bios to ACHI mode, but also in Windows 7 as well. You can follow the steps in the above tutorial. Hope this helps.

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?

Thanks in advance

After getting several error messages while using my computor, and the fact that it was continually starting up in Chkdsk, i decided best to back it all up and reformat etc.. so i looked around for a Free HD Backup utility and went with the latest Free release from Paragon. So.. followed instructions..started the backup.. all seemed ok. then it said it needed exclusive access to c drive, and to restart.. so that I did.. on reboot, a screen appeared which said the program was in process of backing up.. Great.
2 hours later.. still..will I leave it or wait?? i decided leave it overnight.. sure enough next morning.. still in backup process.. you're kidding me.. well I decided to shut it down and see what will happen on reboot..

This morning I have being practising with Paragon Backup and Recovery 2010 and I'm very pleased with it, you can burn a recovery bootable CD that works out side your OS to reinstall your complete OS from a backup archive. Paragon Backup and Recovery 2010 can also test your backup archive for integrity. I am looking forward to using this software on my new external hard drive after I have formatted it to NTFS.

I was trying to run Paragon backup the other day to back up my OS like I've done many times with it before. Now all of a sudden I'm getting this error message:



Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

A:Getting an error when trying to run Paragon Backup, please help.

I had that happen to me. I discovered it usually meant your hard drive has bad blocks. I fixed it by running Seagates Seatools on my HDD. The windows disk check did not see the problem. Seatools found and corrected the error. Barring that, try Paragons own Hot Processing method.

Open Paragon, On top menu Tools> Settings> Hot Processing Options> Click Enable Hot Processing> Switch form Microsoft Volume Shadow Service to Paragon Hot Processing> Click Use Hot Processing only when partition is locked> Ok your way out

Try a backup that way. It will work just the same, and restore fine if needed. As I say, if you want to correct the original problem, you can try chkdsk , but it didn't find anything for me, whereas the Seatools disc did. Also make sure the Volume Shadow Copy service is set to automatic.

I backed up a full image onto an external USB HD using Paragon's Backup & Recovery 10 Free Edition. If my W 7 system refuses to boot how do I access the backup so that I can restore the system from the image? Paragon's utility does not seem to provide a mechanism to boot up with.Thanks.

A:Restoring from Paragon's backup?

I think Paragon offers creating Bootable Recovery CD/DVD or USB flash drive
So create it.

And when your system fails you can just boot from that CD and recover your PC.

I have installed Paragon backup & recovery 10.1. Paragon asks for more options for selecting partitions than Windows system imaging and I need advice on what partitions to select. I have:
17.5 GB - PQ Service (hidden partition)
100 MB - System reserved
457 GB - C: (Operating system & applications)
457 GB - D:
I don't want the image to include D: so have been selecting the 100MB system reserved and C:.
What would Windows be imaging?
Should I be including the 100 MB system reserved? and does Windows imaging include this bit as well?

Appreciate any comments.

A:paragon and system reserved

Paragon is not my backup of choice, but I'm sure that it is okay, just that I'm not as familiar with it. If it were me, I would backup any critical partition, i.e. PQ service, System reserved and C:, but I would do them separately, so that I could pick and choose among them later. Actually, I would do the same with D:...depending on it's content.
