The downloadable Hard Disk Manager 15 Suite from Paragon is the suitable system and data management solution for the private user. It features dependable backup and flexible recovery functions, optimization tools, a new Paragon recovery environment, and reliable data wiping algorithms.
Embedded Recovery Media Builder 3.0
Instead of two utilities downloaded from Paragon's website (BMB and RMB), the new RMB 3.0 is now embedded into the product
Prepares Linux or WinPE-based bootable environment on a USB thumb drive, in an ISO or PXE image
Requires 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, 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 users to set up a network connection with a pre-mounted network share during setup
Prepares hybrid (uEFI and BIOS compatible) 64-bit recovery environment on flash or in an ISO image
System and Data Backup
The Hard Disk Manager 15 Suite handles your backup tasks automatically from backing up the entire system, individual partitions or just selected files. Incremental and differential backup technologies make continuous system backups efficient with the Paragon hard disk manager. A one-time full backup of the entire computer followed by regular incremental backups keep the status of your PC safe at all times. The new backup containers in pVHD format speed up backups to networks (like an NAS). You can use the file complement wizard to add top-priority files to existing backups outside of the general backup cycle.
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.
Recovery and Adaptation
It gives you total flexibility and can restore the entire system, specific partitions or just individual files. 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.
Partitioning and Optimization
Paragon's high-performance partitioning engine handles any hard disk partitioning task and helps make optimal use of the hard disk space. Advanced mode puts analysis and repair tools at your fingertips, allowing you to fix booting problems or analyze hard drive status.
It allows you to separate user and system data from one another and distribute them among different target hard disks so you can make the most out of your space on an SSD. If you need a virtual clone of your Windows system, the P2V Adjust OS Wizard helps you adapt it to conventional hypervisors (such as VMware Workstation, Oracle Virtual Box or MS Hyper-V).
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.
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.
Revised Graphical User Interface (GUI)
It is easier to find particular functions. 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
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)
Easily extract files and folders from a backup image through the restore wizard without the need to restore an entire image
Paragon Adaptive Restore 3.0
The Adaptive Restore helps you restore your system backup onto completely different hardware from which the backup was made, or migrate your operating system from your old to your new computer. P2P Adjust OS Wizard will add all required drivers smoothly and easily, making your operating system bootable on your new machine or on the altered hardware
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
Restore from VD Wizard
Restore entire hard disks, separate partitions, or certain files and folders from pVHD (available under Windows, WinPE, and Linux)
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 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)
Disaster Recovery for Apple Boot Camp
Protect dual-boot Macs from the Windows side or in the Linux or WinPE recovery environments
UIM (Universal Image Mounter)
Mount pVHD backup images to browse their contents and retrieve data both, in the program and directly under Windows OS
Merge of Incremental Virtual Containers
Merge contents of the last increment in the chain with the previous one, thus updating its contents. This option enables to effectively manage backup contents and cut on the backup storage requirements
The high-performance partition engine is compatible with all new generations of data devices.
Basic and Advanced Partitioning
Create, format, delete, undelete, hide or unhide partition, set partition active/inactive, set, change or remove drive letter, change hard disk partition label (Volume Label), convert file systems without formatting, check file system integrity, and run complete surface test
