Paragon 299PREPL overview

  • 1Description

The downloadable Hard Disk Manager 15 Professional from Paragon includes everything you need for cutting-edge data management and opens up professional system administration options. Tools such as high-performance file exclusion filters for efficient backup and recovery operations, the Paragon partitioning engine, the capability of editing virtual hard disks, Hyper-V guest system backup functions, the scripting option, and expanded support for virtual machines.

System and Data Backup
Handles your backup tasks automatically: backs up entire system, individual partitions, or selected files. Automates frequently used operations and benefit from a variety of virtual backup containers. Offers a full selection of backup options (sector and file-based, differential or incremental backups or special file complements).

Password protection keeps sensitive data safe from unauthorized access. For data requiring additional security, the Hard Disk Manager 15 Professional also supports drives encrypted with BitLocker.
Partitioning and Optimization
Handles any hard disk partitioning task and helps make optimal use of hard disk space. No matter if you are preparing a hard disk for use with multiple operating systems or redistributing storage space between several different partitions, you can always get top performance out of SSDs and hard disks with 4 K sectors and RAID volumes.

Paragon ConnectVD allows you to work with virtual hard drives and is an indispensable function for anyone who uses virtual environments. ConnectVD makes it easy to manage virtual drives for anything from partitioning or MFT defragmentation to data exchange. Advanced mode puts precise analysis and repair tools at your fingertips, allowing you to fix booting problems or analyze hard drive status.
Recovery and Adaptation
The Universal Image Mounter (UIM) gives you full access to your secured files at all times. You can simply map a backup archive as a network drive and the files it contains will already be accessible, just like they would be with a normal hard disk.
Migration and Virtualization
Virtualize your running system or quickly and easily convert an existing backup into a virtual machine. Copy existing virtual machines with just a few clicks and adapt them for use with a different hypervisor (e.g. from VMware Workstation to MS Hyper-V). This even works with failed virtualizations which were conducted using software from other suppliers.
Paragon Recovery Medium
You can fire up your PC with the bootable Paragon recovery environment and load in an existing backup, secure important data or rectify booting errors. The new Recovery Media Builder 3.0 makes it extremely easy and flexible to create your own personal recovery environment. You can use the advanced options and already add your network configuration and network drive while you're still creating the recovery medium.
Dependable Data Wiping
You are able to restore data you have deleted even if the hard drive has been physically destroyed. With the Hard Disk Manager's wiping function, you can free up storage space and make sure the data's been deleted. Just use Paragon's efficient wiping algorithms or develop your own one. It gives you wiping functions for SSDs and erases SSD data safely without shortening the SSD's service life.
Hyper-V Backup
The Microsoft Hypervisor Hyper-V has been included in every Windows installation since Windows 8. The new Hard Disk Manager 15 Professional can back up Hyper-V guest systems without the Hard Disk Manager having to be installed on the virtual system in questions (agentless backup). This allows you protect multiple Hyper-V systems from a central location, even when offline or while a Hyper-V system is running.
BitLocker Support
Many operations* which the Hard Disk Manager 15 Professional offers can also be used on drives which were encoded with Microsoft's encryption BitLocker technology. 1
File-Level Backup/Restore for Virtual Containers (pVHD, VHD, VHDX, VMDK)
Paragon's backup imaging technology now opens up the option of creating file-level virtual containers (full, incremental, as well as file complements), thus offering users rock-stable, high-performance technology to protect system and data on sector-level and file-level.
Refactored P2V Restore Wizard
You can now use virtual containers (pVHD, VHD, VHDX, VMDK). It is the suitable solution to do P2V out of backup image scenarios. The use of virtual containers significantly improves the performance and usability for P2V migration operations.
Revised Graphical User Interface (GUI)
Legacy functions that deal with the old Paragon's backup container (.pbf) are hidden by default but can be called through a legacy view.
Major Backup Techniques
Sector and file level backups with differential or incremental updates as well as a file complement.
Smart Backup Wizard
Back up exactly what you need, with the backup technique automatically chosen according to the type of data you wish to protect.
Backup Destination
Easily extract files and folders from a backup image through the restore wizard without the need to restore an entire image.
Hot Processing Options
Live backup is a key feature for any backup software. It is highly flexible, having improved configuration for two different methods of hot processing: Paragon HotBackup and Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
Backup and Restore to or from FTP/sFTP
You can directly write your backups to an FTP server. Using sFTP, the data transfer to the external server will be protected and encrypted.
Incremental Backup to VD
Back up changes since the full or the incremental image. It's allowed to maintain several incremental chains based on one full image, provided each chain contains changed data of a particular backup object. To effectively manage backup contents and cut on backup storage requirements, the last increment in the chain is allowed to merge with the previous one, thus updating its contents.
Retention Wizard for VD
Set up unattended backup operations involving regular creation of full or incremental virtual containers controlled by backup data retention policies. This tool is fully compliant with the so called set-and-forget backup strategies:
It can process separate partitions or entire hard disks.
It can do full and incremental images.
Incremental Disk Imaging
Increments contain data changed since the time of creating a full archive, and thus allowing saving more time and the backup storage. With this type of disk imaging method our company has introduced technology that boosts efficiency of the network backup by 200%.
Improved Write-Operations by using Asynchronous Backup
Improve the speed of the backup processing by using asynchronous writing operations.
Encryption and Password Protection for Backups
To avoid unauthorized access to your backup files, you can easily encrypt them within our backup wizards.
GPT/uEFI Compatible Backup Capsule
Build a WinPE-based bootable backup capsule for your 64-bit Windows system resided on GPT to successfully start up PC from it in case of emergency.
P2P Adjust OS Wizard
Migrate a Windows physical system to a different hardware platform (P2P).

Redistribute Free Space
Increase free space on one partition by utilizing the on-disk unallocated space and the unused space of other partitions.
