Paragon 299PMEBLT1-E Overview

  • 1Description

The downloadable Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Premium is a Windows software program that backs up the contents on your drives to protect them in the event of drive failure or a virus. It supports physical and virtual Windows environments—even if it is encrypted with BitLocker. You can also schedule differential and incremental backups to maximize disk space. New in this version are file-level backup for virtual containers, agent-less protection of Hyper-V guest machines, AES support, and more. Paragon Recovery Media Builder 3.0 is now embedded into this version so you can create WinPE-based bootable media and inject required drivers during setup.

Hard Disk Manager 15 Premium enables you to resize, create, format, or read HFS+ volumes. You can also swap file systems to another type such as HFS to NTFS or FAT to NTFS. To save critical data during a system reformat, it creates a partition for just your data so you can just reinstall the operating system. Migrating your backup onto another computer, Paragon's imaging technology enables you to create a VD container that you can burn to a removable media. In addition, Hard Disk Manager 15 Premium lets you erase data securely with 10 wiping methods.

New Features in Hard Disk Manager 15 Premium

Supports Windows 10
Operates at the virtualization layer, employing MS VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to backup/restore any guest machine of Hyper-V. An agent is not required to be on a target virtual machine to create its point-in-time copy, including its configuration, operating system, and apps
File-level backup/restore for virtual containers (pVHD, VHD, VHDX, VMDK)
Export VD container wizard helps to burn a VD container to a removable media such as a CD, DVD or Blu-ray disk. This option makes copies of your backup images portable and easily acceptable on other computers
Available only for VD containers, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a symmetric block algorithm that protects your personal data
System state data backup will help you automatically back up all critical system settings alongside with some important applications data while ignoring other data stored on the system partition. This lets you create an optimal backup image of system state to get the system and Microsoft applications quickly back on track
Refactored P2V restore wizard utilizes virtual containers (pVHD, VHD, VHDX, VMDK) to improve the performance and usability for P2V migration operations
Paragon Recovery Media Builder 3.0 is the combination of two utilities and is embedded into Hard Disk Manager 15 Premium to offer more options, usability, and stability
  • Prepares Linux or WinPE-based bootable environment on a USB thumb drive, in an ISO, or PXE image
  • Doesn't obligatory require Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) or Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) on Windows 7 and later platforms
  • Can build WinPE-based media on Windows XP, Vista, and Server 2003 if there's WAIK installed in the system
  • Allows injecting additional drivers for storage devices, network controllers, USB controllers, or system during setup
  • Enables to set up a network connection with a pre-mounted network share during setup
  • Prepares hybrid (both, uEFI and BIOS compatible) 64-bit recovery environment on flash or in an ISO image
The GUI of Hard Disk Manager 15 has been revised so you can easily find particular legacy functions that deal with the old Paragon's backup container (.pbf), which are hidden by default but can be called through a special legacy view
The wiping SSD function is user friendly and lets you permanently wipe nearly all brands of SSDs
After wiping a drive, you have an option to automatically save the wipe reports to a specified folder

Backup and Disaster Recovery Features

Sector and file level backups with differential or incremental updates as well as an exclusive file complement
Local mounted/un-mounted partitions, external storages, CD/DVD/Blu-ray discs, network shares, FTP/SFTPs servers as well as the secured hidden partition (Backup Capsule)
Smart Backup wizard automatically backs up only the data you wish to protect
Back up, restore, copy, or change properties of volumes encrypted by Windows BitLocker. Combination of BitLocker and pVHD enables protection of OS and personal data from unauthorized access and from data loss
Increased backup performance, minimized backup storage requirements, and elimination of interference with special-purpose backup tools by automatic exclusion of applications from the backup process
Back up separate partitions or entire hard disks to the pVHD (Paragon Virtual Hard Drive) format, which is a special VHD that's optimized for storing backups of virtual and physical machines
Restore entire hard disks, separate partitions, or certain files and folders from pVHD (available under Windows, WinPE, and Linux)
Paragon's backup imaging technology opens up the option of creating file-level virtual containers (full, incremental, as well as file complements), thus offering users stable, high-performance technology to protect system and data not only on sector-level, but file-level as well
Easily extract files and folders from a backup image through the Restore wizard without the need to restore an entire image
Archive database
Change any property (merge a given differential image with its full image, split/un-split, compress/de-compress, and more) of an existing backup without carrying out a physical backup operation
Backup encryption and password protection for archives prevent unauthorized access to personal data
Comprehensive recovery environments are based on Linux, DOS, and WinPE. They are available on CD/DVD/Blu-ray, USB flash drives, and Backup Capsule. This version of Premium offers P2P Adjust OS, uEFI fixup, and Connect VD functions for the Linux based recovery environment
Exchange granular recovery gives you transparent access to backup mail databases of MS Exchange Server 2003/2007/2010, using the standard facilities of MS Outlook 2003/2007/2010 for easy and fast data recovery at a granular level
Boot corrector fixes most system boot problems, which can be the result of human error, program error, or a boot virus activity under Linux or WinPE
To successfully start up a PC in case of emergency, you can build a WinPE-based bootable backup capsule for your 64-bit Windows system resided on the GPT
Includes Paragon HotBackup and Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), which are two different methods of hot processing
UIM (Universal Image Mounter) mounts pVHD backup images (full, incremental, and encrypted), so you can browse their contents and retrieve data within in the program and directly under Windows OS
Disaster recovery for Apple Boot Camp is available to protect dual-boot Macs from the Windows side or in the Linux or WinPE recovery environments

Partitioning and Optimization Features

Aligns partitions automatically during the operation and optimizes physical as well as virtual disks for I/O performance
Create, format, and delete are basic functions for initializing, partitioning and formatting hard disks. Instead of the standard Windows disk tools, the program supports all popular file systems
Separate OS and data or different types of data by splitting one partition into two different partitions of the same type and file system, thus providing for more effective data organization and safety
Safely merge contents of two partitions into one bigger partition
Increase free space on one partition by taking available, unallocated space from other partitions
MFT (Master File Table) defragmentation and shrinking enables to get the most out of the NTFS file system. A defragmented MFT can cause performance degradation of servers that host databases like MS SQL and Exchange
Change the cluster size value to effectively control performance of your system and the so called "waste space factor"
Swap the current file system type to another (FAT to NTFS or HFS to NTFS) while ensuring data is kept safe
Boot manager lets you easily manage several operating systems on one 32-bit computer
Convert any version of NTFS file system to Apple HFS and vice versa without reformatting
Convert an MBR basic or dynamic disk into GPT or vice versa with minimal efforts while keeping data safe

Data Copy and Migration Features

Hard Disk Manager 15 Premium offers uEFI support
  • A 64-bit Windows OS system configured to the uEFI boot mode can be adjusted to successfully start up on another hard disk during copy/restore accomplished directly under Windows. Previously the uEFI fixup was only available under WinPE
  • A 64-bit Windows OS system configured to the uEFI boot mode will successfully start up in a virtual environment after P2V migration
  • The Linux-based recovery environment supports systems configured to the uEFI boot mode
With any Windows OS since 2000 to Windows 8.1, Paragon's adaptive restore will boot on dissimilar hardware by automatically injecting required drivers and performing other operations crucial for this type of migration
Migrate a Windows-based virtual system to a physical hardware platform
Swap your virtual servers and workstations from one to another hypervisor with minimal efforts
Migrate the Windows OS from a high capacity HDD to a lower capacity SSD
Migrate contents of a 512-byte hard disk to a 4k hard disk
Support of GPT drives and modern high capacity disks (2.2TB+) under Windows XP for storing data

Virtualization Features

Supports the migration of a physical machine to a virtual machine to provide you with flexibility and availability of hardware and applications
P2V Adjust OS makes the operating system start up after an unsuccessful migration or virtualization with third-party tools
P2V Restore uses a previously created backup image of a Windows physical machine to bring to virtual life a damaged or already non-existed system
Instead of the old PBF-based backup images, refactored P2V restore wizard uses virtual containers (pVHD, VHD, VHDX, VMDK) to do P2V for backup image scenarios. The use of virtual containers significantly improves the performance and usability for P2V migration operations
Migrate a virtual system from one virtual environment to another, or migrate a virtual system to a physical environment
Connect a virtual disk as if it's an ordinary physical disk and open up all physical-disk functionality in a virtual environment
Mount a virtual disk in read-only mode to make sure no data is altered on the virtual disk during copy or other operations
Hard Disk Manager is now able to resume any operation with a virtual volume in case of disconnection or any other unexpected situation
Supports MS Virtual PC, VMware Workstation 10.0, VMware Fusion, VMWare vSphere ESX/ESXi 4.x/5.x, and Oracle VirtualBox 4

Data Wiping Features
