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.

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.

Gday

I have emailed Paragon and am awaiting there reply, but you guys seem to know a lot more and try and solve the problem

Up to this point I have used either Acronis or Paragon for my backups, I prefer Paragon over Acronis, mainly because the restore by Paragon is far quicker.

I have both bootable CD's, but in this instance I would like to concentrate on Paragon.

I downloaded Paragon's Advanced Recovery CD. 2009 Build 6730. Put it in my rom and booted ....... looked at a black screen for 10 minutes. Removed it and rebooted, it got stuck at the loading of Vista, then I got another black screen no hard drive movement.

Rebooted again, this time with the regular Paragon bootable CD. It booted into the recovery console.

Now this is where things go from bad to worse. I tried finding my OS, after a lengthy period I received an error disk 2 i/o fault!!! ....... no operating system found.

Now disk 2 is my external hard drive where my backups are kept.

So I rebooted with the CD in, went into the recovery console and clicked on "safe restore", after playing the waiting game I get a message disk 2 i/o fault!!!.

Took out the Paragon CD, put in the Vista one, tried a repair, but there was no OS to repair .

So I installed Vista, and because I didn't want to have to reinstall all of my programs again (yer lazy I know, but that's what backup's are for).

Checked with the fresh install, that my two external hard drives, had there drivers and were present. They were ... Read more

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.

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."

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.

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.

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. That ISO CD may just let me continue using the Acronis version I now have and until I can buy the 2010 version.

My NTFS non-system partition is now almost well defragmented. However this applies only to small and medium sized files.

There are still approx 40 big files (> 1 GB) which cannot be defragmented because there is no free single (!) space slot where they fit in.

So I need a way to shift all occupied clusters to get free contigous space on my hard disk.
Currently about 150 GB is be free on my partition but divided into thousand of individual chunks.

I tried now half a dozend of defragmenters.
Sad but true: NO (!) one was able to perform this easy operation.

Can someone recommend me a real defragmenter which is able to perform such a "shift" operation?

Thank you
Peter

A:How to shift all free space on hard disk to get contigous free space?

I'm not sure exactly what you have and exactly what you are trying to do.

I personally use Windows 7 built in defrag and have found nothing better.

Windows 7 will put things like Windows 7 wants and needs things put.
The Windows 7 defrag or 3rd party defrag programs doesn't care where you want things put or what order you want them.

As far as I know you will have no control over such things.
You are obviously using a 3rd party defrag tool because you are watching the little colored squares and noticing what looks like free spaces between things. Why things are defragged in the fashion they are I really don't know.
What I do know is Windows 7 defrag put things in the order that Windows 7 wants them and that is what counts.

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.

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.

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.

I'm running Windows 7 with a 218GB hard disk. At one point I noticed that the hard disk space was significantly less than it should be. I deleted a few files and emptied the recycle bin, but the free filespace only decreased. After restarting, the filespace had gone down to less than a gigabyte. It was constantly fluctuating but would be consistently under a gigabyte. It also caused my computer to act very slow.

Per some suggestions that I found online, I downloaded i.Disk to see what was taking up all this space, and it showed up that I have 176GB used (which is much more accurate). But on Explorer, it still says I have only a few gigabytes left. So obviously something is wrong. I'm running a virus scan at the moment, but in the meantime does anyone know what is causing this problem?

I currently have 32GB space free on my hard disk, but the last time I checked I think I had around 30GB or 29GB free. I don't know where I got this free space from. Maybe it's my imagination and I've only used about 5GB for quite a while
I deleted the contents of the regcleaner folder a couple of days ago, because I was told to do so in a hijackthis thread, but it wouldn't hold so much I wouldnt think. I hope I didn't delete anything important. I also was told to "turn off System Restore on all drives" and then turn it on again, so maybe this created space?
I tried to defrag the pc unsuccessfully yesterday, so I don't know if this gave me extra space even though it didnt work-though it doesnt do this anyway, I'm not sure. (I did defrag it properly today). To be honest, I don't know, but I cant ever remember only having used 5GB, instead of 7 or 8GB like I used to have.

A:I seem to have much more free space on my hard disk than I had previously

When you turned off System restore you cleared all previous restores and freed up the space they held.

I read an article some time back about a person who had child pornography on his computer. Best I can remember, an airport security person saw it and took the person aside along with his laptop. Someone restarted the laptop discovered the hard disk was encrypted. I read some time later that the owner of the laptop was being held in contempt of court because he would not furnish the password.

And this is the clincher: The FBI could not break the encryption, either.

The point of this is that I want to know if there is any free encryption out there that will encrypt an entire disk so well that even the FBI can't crack it (at least not at present).

If I'm going to encrypt my laptops' hard disks and my flash drives, I might as well use the best free (or low cost) encryption I can find.

After running disk cleanup, Spybot S&D, Registry Mechanic, Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes and came up with little to no results I decided to reboot and hope that it would miraculously work itself out. Upon logging in I noticed that I had my 242gb of free space back! The joy came to soon, however, as I kept checking back on my disk space and noticing between 3-5Gb vanishing every few minutes.

I don't have the answer you want, except that I am wondering if you have already run the disk check method built-in for Windows.

Right click at Start > select Command Prompt (Admin) > in the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.................
chkdsk f/r

You will be told that it cannot perform the command now but if you want to do that on restart.
Type Y as in "yes" > Enter.
Restart computer.
It will take quite some time.

Hi guys,

I have two hard disks in my computer. one is a 40gb and other 160gb.
the 40gb HDD has been partitioned into two @roughly 20Gb each, with xp installed on one of them.

I'm running windows XP sp3 which is installed in the C:\ drive(roughly 20Gb). The problem tat i face is that windows reports the free size to be only 988mb.

When i check into the file properties of all the files it reports to be around 5GB, i have no idea where the remaning 15gb is gone.

Here's a list of things that i have done:

1. Enabled to show hidden operating system files
2. Cleared temp files using CCleaner.
3. Tried chkdsk /r option.
4. Turned off system restore.
5. Tried lots of disk reporting softwares. (which also couldn't find the missing space).

I've attached some screenshots which will be helpful.
Still I'am not able to find out the exact reason for this prob.
Plz suggest

Paragon Migrate to SSD copied the first partition, but there's no way to copy the second. It just wants to clear the disk again. I'm also a bit confused about Alignment. Would it effect this ?
I changed the ACHI setting using the command line OK

Could I just clone the disk using Acronis TI Home, and not worry about the alignment etc ?

I've noticed both my Windows XP Home and Gentoo Linux installs get progressively slower over the past few months. I recall reinstalling XP and being amazed at just how snappy it was (same for Gentoo), but I now notice much HD thrashing and general sluggishness. I'm using a ReiserFS 3.6 partition for Gentoo and it used to blow even the fresh XP install out of the water many moons ago.

XP's RAM usage is generally under 230MB upon a fresh boot (got 512MB total), and Gentoo's is much less of course. However, the Reiser and NTFS partitions are 70% and 73% full respectively. I've heard that increasing free HD space usually boosts performance, but what is the reason behind this?
 

A:Why is general responsiveness proportional to free hard-disk space?

I don't _think_ it matters unless the HDD is very near full, but the HDD also needs enough room for the page file. The two things that usually degrade performance is the number of things loading on startup and a fragmented HDD. After a fresh install and a bunch of program installs, defraging is recommended.

If the wizard doesn't come up you will have you select the drive right click on it( it will be either Disk0/Disk1 Depending on the number of Hard Drives you have.
If it disk1(check the size You will then know what drive to select) in front of it it will in blue color right click on it & select "change drive letter & path" click on Add then Ok now you will see that drive on My Computer.

Recently I was looking for a way to save an image of my hard drive so that I could restore it ANY time to ANY computer. After setting up so many personal settings and various wallpapers, desktops and all the documents saved on particular subjects, it is a real downer when your system crashes and you have to start reloading from 'scratch'.
Well, the information that I got from the following website, including the free software, has taken care of all my worries. Not only can you save an exact disk image to a hard disk partition, or to a different hard disk drive, but you can save to a USB flash memory stick (which I do all the time). There are also ways to make the USB device bootable.

Anyone ever had similar confusion? and what did you do?

Probably doesn't help that when I reuse old hard disks, I usually leave Windows on them.

I use Windows XP professional SP3 with a 500 GB Hard disk partitioned as
C (300 GB0 and D ((200 GB).

Yesterday I went to C properties to do a disk cleanup (after cleaning all temps, defragging etc...) and to my surprise disk C shows an incredible
80 GB used space when in fact it should be only 13 GB as I have always noticed. Disk D shows the correct amount of used space as 11 GB.

I recently deleted like 8 movie copies (each 4.7 GB) from my hard disk (they are too large to go to the Recycle bin so they are erased on the spot).

I have not installed any software in the past month (all softwares that I have installed are on partition D) so I only have the system files on C and 2 or 3 applications totalling about 13 GB.

I don't know why windows explorer shows 80 GB on C and I am looking for help to fix it. I googled the issue but only found related issues from years
2000 thru 2008 giving different solutions (but the issues weren't exactly like the one I am experiencing althought they were all related to windows not showing the correct amount of disk space.

I have searched for files larger than 1 GB with no results, none of my docs, pics, videos exceed a few MB. I need help to fix this.

Hi everyone. My name is Jimmy. I'm using a lenovo 3000 n100 laptop running windows vista with SP1. Recently I noticed that my 100GB hard drive was running out of space. So I deleted nearly all my space-hogging applications and media. Windows explorer said there was still being around 70GB being used. Since I had only a few GB of documents/media and no huge programs, I suspected that this was wrong.

I proceeded to "clean up" my disk space: deleting temporary files with windows disk cleaner, running the chkdsk utility, doing a complete defrag. I deleted all but my last system restore point, deleted my hibernation files, and checked shadow copy (shadowcopy was only using about 1GB of space... not the culprit). I ran CCleaner and then full scans of Windows Defender, AVG, and Spybot S&D.

All of this freed up about 10GB, but explorer said there was still supposedly a whopping 60GB taken up on my 100GB hard disk. Highlighting and selecting the properties of all the files in C, even with hidden files & super hidden files enabled, said it was about 25GB. I also downloaded a program called JDiskReport which calculates disk usage and, affirming my suspicions, JDiskReport showed about 27GB of usage.

A:interesting junction problem - hard drive showing wrong amount of free disk space

H Jimmy. . .

Welcome to TSF Vista SUpport.

I know exactly what you are talking about with Vista Junctions. If an app uses hard-coded directory (folder) names from the XP era and is now running in Vista, the Junctions will take it for the ride of its life usually down to about 17 directories deep - depending on the length of the dir name.

I need to know if you are Vista x64 or x86 and was it an XP upgrade?

If you are Vista x64 and the program that you ran is an x86 app, the results are useless b/c of virtualization and 3 folder in particular that can and sometimes cannot be found within the Windows directory - \system32, \syswow64, \sysnative.
