Paragon backup and recovery free edition

Disk Imaging has rapidly become a must have tool for most users because of its convenience, speed, and altogether ease of use. With disk imaging software a user can safely recover their computer from a system crash or a bad virus infection without having to worry about reformatting and reinstalling the operating system. With drive imaging there is almost no reason at all to have to reinstall Windows because it offers you the ability to restore an image to your hard drive in a fraction of that time and accomplish the same thing while keeping all of your programs and important data. For many users this has made Windows backup and other file backup solutions redundant.

According to the experts’ reviews, the new Backup & Recovery 2010 Free Advanced Edition, based on solid commercial backup and recovery software from Paragon, can be considered as the best freeware drive imaging utility, offering a rich set of features.

Main Features

Backup Features
  • Backup to FTP servers - provide a new level of system and data protection.
  • Backup Capsule - You can place a backup image to a special secured place on the hard disk called the Backup Capsule that has an independent system layout (e.g. a separate partition) and will stay operable should the active file system be damaged. To avoid an accidental removing or unauthorized access of the backup data, this partition is hidden and thus cannot be mounted in the operating system.
  • Support for the latest hardware as well as hard disk partitioning schemes.
  • Support of all present day techniques to store backup images
  • Disk backup to save not only all on-disk information but also the system service structures. It is ideal for making a backup image of an entire hard disk (including GPT-discs!) or system partitions to guarantee the operating system’s working capability
  • Differential backup  to a sector image to only archive changes since the last full sector-based image, thus considerably saving the backup storage space. To restore this kind of backup you will require a full image and one of its differentials
Restore Facilities

  • Restore an entire disk, separate partitions image
