Options segmentation and optimization
The new logic of the hard disk drive. Paragon has developed a completely new logic for partitioning the hard disk, all the operations of disk labels became faster and safer.
Basic and professional operation of segmentation. Create, format, delete, undelete, the ability to hide / unhide, change its status (active / inactive); assignment, change or remove a drive letter; change hard disk partition label (Volume Label); convert file systems; check file system integrity; full check of the surface.
Partition. Partitioning feature allows you to share disk space OS and data or different kinds of data into two parts of the same file system type.
Merge partitions. Combining space of two adjacent partitions (NTFS, FAT16 / FAT32) to create a single, larger partition.
Redistribute Free Space. Increasing the amount of free space of one partition by taking unused space on other partitions.
Automatic partition alignment. Due to the unique technology of our company on the disk partitions automatically aligned in accordance with its internal geometry, which significantly improves the performance of storage devices. This operation is very useful for solid state drives SSD, AFD-drives, as well as all the other drives with a sector size is not 512B (the list of supported operations is limited).
Boot Corrector. Fixes most boot problems that can result from human error, software failure or virus attack.
Change cluster size. It allows you to optimize system performance and disk space.
Converting a file system HFS NTFS. Convert any version of the NTFS file system in the Apple HFS and vice versa without formatting.
Converting a basic MBR disk to GPT. The ability to take advantage of the new easy-to-use circuit partitioning.
Converting Dynamic MBR to basic MBR. Convert dynamic disk MBR, containing simple volumes into a basic disk MBR.
Converting GPT to a basic MBR. Converting a basic disk or a dynamic GPT, containing simple volumes into a basic disk MBR.
Optimize the file system NTFS. MFT defragmentation and shrinking to maximize the performance of the file system NTFS.
Change the partition ID. The ability to control access to partitions.
Changing the primary slots. Ability to resolve problems caused by wrong order of partitions in the Partition Table.
The change in the version of NTFS earlier. It helps with compatibility issues.
Change serial number. Additional opportunity for experienced users!
Undelete Partition. The ability to find and recover any accidentally deleted partition.
Download manager. Manage multiple operating systems on one computer, quickly and easily.
Backup and Recovery
The advanced technology backup. Archives sector and file level incremental and differential supplements, a unique method to increment the file sector image, and the ability to create sector complements.
Smart Backup Wizard. Back up exactly those objects that you need, using the most appropriate technology backup, the selected automatically depending on the type of data being protected.
Incremental updates to the sector image. Unlike the differential backup, incremental updates can contain not only the data changed since the full image, but since the creation of one of its increments, which helps save time and resources for data storage. In this method, first applied an innovative technology company, which has improved the efficiency of network backup for 200%
Synthetic backup. Change any parameters archive (merger differential backup with a full, split archives into several parts of a given size, compression, etc.), without making physical archiving.
The cyclic archive. Organization of automated data protection system, fully compliant backup policies “set it and forget”
Any storage media backup. The local connected / unconnected sections, external storage, CD / DVD / Blu-ray disks, network folders, FTP servers, and secure hidden partition (Backup Capsule)
Granular recovery. Extract individual files and folders from an archive without restoring the whole archive with the help of the Restore Wizard
Adaptive Restore. Master P2P Adjust OS will run the physical system Windows (starting with Windows 2000) on a different hardware platform (P2P), and automatically finds and fills all the necessary drivers for the correct of your Windows.
New> Reports on devices without drivers; Search for and install lacking drivers from the built-in storage of OS Windows; notifies you to download critical devices without drivers; It designates all the devices according to the description of the model; defines and establishes the drivers for the network controller (NIC)
Archiving without interruption. Backing up or migrating Windows systems without interrupting through technology Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (MS VSS) or Paragon Hot Processing.
Save archive copy on FTP / SFTP. Placing backup archives to FTP / SFTP server provides a new level of protection for your data and systems.
Asynchronous data transfer. Increased productivity backups by asynchronous data transmission.
Encryption and password protection for backups. Guarantee the security of sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access.
Comprehensive recovery environments. Three types to choose from: based on Linux / DOS or WinPE available on CD / DVD / Blu-ray, or flash media or from the Backup Capsule
Disaster recovery for Apple Boot Camp. Protect your Mac with a dual-boot Windows or using the recovery media based on Linux, or WinPE.
Copy and move data
Copying section. Create an exact copy of a partition on the same or a different drive.
Copy Hard Disk. Create an exact copy of the existing hard disk to another disk.
Exclude files. When copying a partition or an entire hard disk to another partition or drive eliminates all unnecessary files with an intuitive wizard.

Extensive migration system. Supports most types of migration in both physical and virtual environments
P2V Copy / Restore. The program can greatly facilitate the migration of physical machines to virtual environments. All existing software infrastructure: system, program, data – will be converted and saved in the format of a virtual disk in a ready-to-use virtual machine
P2V Adjust OS. Besides the basic functions it allows you to create and configure virtual machines on the basis of supported virtual disks or backup copies of the Windows format .vhd
Connecting a virtual disk. Connecting a virtual disk. Connect the virtual disk so that it will be available in the program as an ordinary physical disk. Thus, all the features that are available for physical disks that can be applied to a virtual disk. Now you can:
Connect the archives of Paragon.
Mount a virtual disk in a safe mode. This is a special read / write mode, in which all changes are saved to the mapped drive by creating a snapshot (snapshot), thus ensuring complete safety of the original data on disk. If necessary, the snapshot can be combined with the parent disk by using standard tools provided by vendors of virtualization.
Mount a virtual disk in a “read only” to ensure the immutability of data on disk when copying or other operations with the virtual disk.
Creating a virtual disk. The ability to create an empty virtual disk or with data of one of the most popular virtualization vendors.
