Software Guy Something has gone awry with the postings here, so I will repost:
Paragon sells excellent and solid software for pc backup. They offer a number of choices for different backup needs and this tends to get confusing with their many product offerings. So let me concentrate on backups for home users. We can distill the offerings down to four: compact 29.95$ (free here today) home39.95$ and suite 49.95$ and pro 99.95$. And they have many other products which tends to be confusing without spending lots of time studying the features. But sticking to the theme backup and recovery, each product step gives you more features, some of which you may never need. The feature comparisons are here:

and here

if you have multiple computers the best deal IMHO offered is here (3 computers using the suite)

But for basic backups the product given away here, the compact version is ideal.

the complete selectable product feature tool is here (nice information tool - thanks paragon)

And for drive migration to a new laptop/desktop, paragon offers drive copy 12 pro here

One more word - Paragon is one of the first to offer a short term discount licensing for special and one time use. I personally think that this is a great idea. They offer a 10 day license to repartition your machine or install a SSD at the reasonable price of 9.95$ here
Great concept because you are only going to use that software 1 time, so you pay a reduced fee and get the job done. Excellent concept to save the end user some money.

Gina Anderson I have a paid license copy of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 12 Suite. My husband just needs basic backup on his computer. Will my WinPE/ Paragon Boot Media Builder disk work with this version of the software? I'm not sure how we would recover from boot otherwise.

Thank you!

Urban @Gina Anderson. I quite sure your Win PE boot media will work with this version also. In any case you can make a Linux based boot CD from the wizard within the Paragon Backup & Recovery 12 Compact.

Kimmo Lahtinen I have been using Paragon software for many years and it has been OK. I think the HDM 12 suite is good value for money, but he user interface is little hard to use.

I think I received recently an email that they are preparing next version (14 not 13!), so it would be interesting to know if any buyers for HDM 12 suite are able to get HDM 14 for free?
Nov 7 2013 at 1:46am Copy Link
Michael R. I have the same question as Kimmo. As a former happy buyer of HarddiskManager Suite v11, I've seen v12 is now about 1 year on the market, so, regarding the past, I suppose the next version is just around the corner.

So, even if this is a great offer, I see two best possibilities. Either buy today and get the next version for free or wait until I really need it, ie. my v11 can't do what I need to do and than buy an upgrade (to whatever version is out than).

Personally I would prefer the first one, curious as I am...

Chris Carmichael I agree with Software Guy.
Paragon make reliable products, if a little overweight. The user interface of the full editions is formidable, but on this compact edition it is just the opposite - OK for a simple set-and-forget backup system, but the user can't do much more than that (e.g no examination of backups, partial restore, restore to different partitions etc.).
For a great backup alternative, also reliable, try Macrium Reflect Free.

Software Babe Norton 360 will NOT allow me to download this software, so there is something compiled within the program that either tracking-ware, adware, or spyware.

good morning Norton did not flag this. Followed all the instructions. Downloaded app ok. Clicked on it. It downloads to a temporary file (somewhere). Disappointed you cannot direct it to a file I can find. Emailed for Reg. info. Filled out registration page. All I keep getting is the fill in your registration info and it goes around and around but nothing is directing me to fill in the info I received via email. This is my first time using Bits Dujour and I'm thinking it's not working out so well.

Jeff Titamer Is there any way I could get maybe a coupon or a hold on the price for Hard Disk Manager 12 Suite? I have already made a few purchases and don't have any more spending money right now. I've been looking at this program for a while now wishing it would be on sale but the timing was bad. Sorry, I live on my SSD income only.

Robert Crombie I do not like Windows running when creating an image.
Thus, I created the bootable CD (Linux), and tried it.
I did not like the default settings -
- If burning to DVD, then split at 2GB
- Don't image all files (Disregards some Windows files)

I worked out how to change those settings, but it then ignored my changes and used the defaults above. TCH! TCH!
I suppose I could live with the 2GB DVD split, as I could image to an external drive instead.
I cannot live with it NOT imaging the whole system, as how in the hades can it do a restore later, if the image does not contain EVERYTHING

PS I was going to buy the suite, but I would need much more info on what it's bootable CD can and cannot do

conceptualclarity I'm not being allowed to download this. I get the message : "This promotion has been downloaded too many times from this link.

You can download the software by clicking "Get It For Free" button when the promotion is active."

However, I checked my Downloads box on my browser, and this program NEVER downloaded to it. And clicking that button just takes me around in circles getting the same outcome.

H. H. @Robert Crombie
I´m customer of paragon harddisk Suite (boxed german pro Version, nonreduced price) and can highly recommend this software. I never had probems changing the features you describe. I also prefered to make images with a bootable cd and it always worked fine, I never had a problem changing the splitting size or saving to one big file only (tried this up to an image file size of approx 40gb (normal compression). I don´t know if the problem you describe is an issue of the free version offered at bdj or a setting fault. I´d recommend to ask paragon (reliable support) regarding these issues, because getting the whole harddisk suite at 60% really is a great offer.
Paragon Harddisk Suite has been the only Imaging- Software I was able to make a System restore at dissimiliar hardware.

Robert Crombie Thank you H. H.
I really appreciate you taking the time to respond.
I will purchase the Suite

Are you using the Linux bootable CD, or were you able to create a WinPE CD ?

H. H. @customers
I personally would highly recommend considering buying the paragon hard disk suite at todays 60% disocunt. To my personal experience paragon hard disk suite is a reliable, very versatile piece of software offering more features than many others for a reasonable price and license policy (also see comment from softwareguy).
My experience and comment mainly refers to making a complete system backup /disk image. I´ve bought several programs and additionaly tested some trial versions.
Having to make a complete system restore on dissimiliar hardware paragon harddisk Suite was the only Imaging-Software that managed this task in my occastion.
At least in my occasion the competitive products Acronis true image plus 2013, Easeus todobackup Workstation 8, FarStone, Langmeier backup 8, or Macrium Reflect 5 failed and I was unable to run the disk image on the new pc with different hardware (of coruse even when using paragon you may have to do some finetuning like correcting bootsector - but paragon has aready builtin tools for this and of course you all hardware footrpinted software has to be reactivated).

Additionally Paragon does not make use of the userunfriendly hardware-footrpinted online activation, which can be of great importance in case you need an urgent backup or recovery So it was impossible for me to use easeus todobackup Workstation for more than 1 week because of activation difficulties (although it was my first Installation and usage - apart from this this software is told to call home every 1-2 weeks), Acronis (for some years a good choice) also requires online activation and has become more buggy, and improvements often require the purchase of a new version. Langmeier backup can be a good choice for mainly files and folders backup purposes, since uncompressed backup of files and foldes is possible, but it is quite slow on disk Imaging.

J J As Lito wrote yesterday, I too would be very interested in the 60% sale for HD Manager 12 PRO version. It has some functions I want that the HD Manager 12 SUITE does not have.

Here is a link to compare the different versions of software. Use the pull down menu to select which ones you want to compare.

Now I am getting a message saying that it has been downloaded too many times from the link provided and wants me to do the promotion over again. I try to do the promotion over again and of course it won't let me. What can I do so I can get the software? Thanks

Peter R A question about making a bootdisk: do I really have to download and install Windows AIK, which is an ISO of almost 1,3 GB? How much drivespace on C: would I have to invest for this? Not to mention that this additional Win software will be included in the backup image and makes it even larger...

Thank you.

H. H. @ Peter R
perhaps you may read this link, paragon offers 2 different Solutions:

at the german homepage there are 3 solutions mentioned, but I don´t know if that´s uptodate:

as far as I can remember (building the bootable media is several months ago), I decided to install the required software, built the bootable media, tested it and then deinstalled the additional software
