Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite
Paragon Hard Disk Manager is the ultimate disk management suite that will help you protect, maintain and manage your computer. It includes everything you need to back up, restore, optimize, copy, migrate, recover and wipe date from your computer hard drives.
Paragon Hard Disk Manager is a complete set of tools covering the following tasks:
- Backup and recovery
- Disk optimization
- Copying and migration
- System recovery
- Partition management
- Secure data erasure
It includes simple wizards that make it easy for even complete beginners to use, whilst providing powerful tools for more advanced users.
The disk partitioning tools allow you to create, format, check, delete, hide, unhide, mark as active and assign drive letters to partitions. You can also resize, copy and undelete partitions. If a drive seems to be failing you can perform an integrity check or a full surface test. There is a low level disk editor for advanced users, and a tool to modify and repair master boot records (MBR). There is also a boot manager, allowing you to easily install and boot different operating systems.
Powerful backup and cloning tools allow you to protect your data by making copies on other drives. Backups can be compressed to save space and encrypted to keep the contents secure. You can back up to all kinds of media including CD, DVD and external drives.
The all-important restore functions have been equally well thought out. Partition backups can be restored with resize - valuable when restoring to a new drive of a different capacity to the original. You can create bootable recovery CDs allowing data to be restored without needing to install a working Windows environment first. Individual files can be extracted from backup archives - invaluable when you find you have accidentally deleted a file.
The powerful disk defragmenter is much faster and more effective than the one provided by Microsoft, and works with as little as 1% of free space available. When you come to dispose of your PC, the disk wiping tools will ensure that your personal data does not fall into other hands.
We recommend Paragon Hard Disk Manager because it contains a number of must-have disk management tools including an excellent backup program and is extremely good value for money.
