    "Works perfectly under Win 7 and 8.1 64bit"

    June 22, 2014   |   By Haphaistios

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free (64-bit) 2014

    Pros

    I am using it under 7 and 8.1 64 bit editions, creates fantastic recovery media on bootable USB (or DVD, if you prefer). The best backup, in my tests beats Macrium Reflect.

    Cons

    Does not restore to dissimilar hardware - you need paid version for that.

    Summary

    Fantastic program, all I need, use it on four different computers. Together with Paragon Partition Manager free makes unbeatable and FREE set of recovery and disk management tools! Now comes with bootable Win PE media (also free).

    "Waste of Time and Effort - Useless !!!"

    June 18, 2014   |   By Mike_in_Brazil

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free (64-bit) 2014

    Pros

    none: you may try to use Paragon Backup & Recovery 2013 [which works flawlessly] if you are lucky enough to use a 32 bit operating system; now if you have a 64 bit OS then you are scr*wed...

    Cons

    1) What is the point of a RECOVERY program (even a free one like this cr*p) if you CANNOT make a bootable rescue disk to use when you need the aforementioned RECOVERY program ???

    Summary

    This program is completely WORTHLESS and its only reason to exist is to force you to buy the paid version...

    "Disappointed-Does not work on Win8.1x64 Update1 disks"

    April 18, 2014   |   By VictorIT1

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free (64-bit) 2014

    Pros

    Nice interface.

    Cons

    It will not allow selection of any Windows 8.1 disks and partitions.

    USB drives, SD cards, etc. can be selected.

    Summary

    Not a viable product currently for Windows 8.1 Update 1. This is not the only product tried that has this problem, so it may be something Microsoft had done.

    Nonetheless this product does not work at this point.

    "Would not install"

    March 21, 2014   |   By Rickajho

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 2013

    Pros

    I have no idea, because:

    Cons

    The installation gets all the way to the end, throws up "Error 1751..." & reports something is missing from the installation package, and then rolls back the install and quits.

    Summary

    There is no info on Paragon's site or in the PDF manual about installation errors or how to fix them. If the download on CNET is corrupted all I can say is this isn't the first time I have found truncated/crapped download files on CNET.

    "Use Paragon Backup & Recovery 2013 FREE"

    March 05, 2014   |   By fujitsulover

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free (64-bit) 2014

    Pros

    did not work for me

    Cons

    did not work for me

    Summary

    Even though this version of Paragon Backup & Recovery 2014 did NOT work for me, the previous version "Paragon Backup & Recovery 2013" works! I just tested another competitor backup product and it ended up not working as well. However, I will say that if you backup to 4.7gb DVDs then make sure you grab a bootable media from Acronis True Image WD Edition. Paragon Backup & Recovery 2013 FREE was only able to restore the 4.7gb DVDs "after" using the WD Edition from Acronis to format the hard drive as GPT structure. The reason this is important is that the partition was locked and could not be modified. So Microsoft Windows 8 could not be installed on a locked partition. That is why Acronis True Image WD Edition was used to format the hard disc. Obviously, the boot-disc on a 4.7gb DVD disc had to be created "before" a crash. Thank you Jesus Christ.

    "Jesus Christ!"

    February 26, 2014   |   By fujitsulover

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 2013

    Pros

    It saved me. Thank you Paragon for a job well done. God bless you.

    Cons

    You just have to grab a bite to eat while it is working.

    Summary

    I just want to give credits to God for leading me to this working program first of all. I have Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit) and intentionally with much hesitation formatted and erased my one partition which I had backup with Paragon Backup & Recovery 2013 FREE. I was unsure whether it would work seeing it is from the year 2013 and my version is 64-bits as well as the more recent Microsoft Windows 8. Anyways, to make a long story short, after spending an hour or more waiting for it to restore my formatted and erased partition, it booted up successfully. I know that the erase damaged my startup process because I tested to make sure it could not start Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit). After my test shows that it failed to start with an error message, I used Paragon Backup & Restore 2013 FREE rescue media disc which had previously been prepared for emergency like this. The end result is that is works!! I am writing this review from a restored laptop using Paragon Backup & Recovery 2013 FREE. Thank you Paragon Group for working so hard to make a utility like this reliable. Of course, mom pays the bill for all my use in the first place; However, I try to help out where I can by getting goodies and freebies like this. I hope I did my job and paid for the program by testing this program to make sure it works. I repeat that I did NOT get paid for this review. It worked for me in this case. Anyways, to conclude for this session: "Thank you God for all your help!"

    "Great program and works with windows 8.1"

    February 15, 2014   |   By angmalta

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free (64-bit) 2014

    Pros

    Does what it promises
    Works with windows 8.1
    Free
    Good manual

    Cons

    Pretty complicated to use

    Summary

    Works well and very glad with this program

    Updated on Feb 15, 2014

    Very glad this version works with windows 8.1. I also had trouble to register (and therefore finding Recovery Media Builder add on), but finally it appeared to work using the tile in Express launcher. That way I could register and after that the download link for the Recovery Media builder add on appeared in my account (products > PBR 2014 free).

    "What a con!"

    February 11, 2014   |   By gavinzn

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free (64-bit) 2014

    Pros

    The backup seemed to work OK, and the interface was easy to use.

    Cons

    No way to register the free product on their website. The product help was useless. The registration process demanded a serial number and asked you to go back and click on the FREE option, which I'd done. So no way to register, therefore no way to download bootable media. So no way to recover, so what use is a backup?

    Summary

    Back to an old version of ACRONIS TrueImage Home ...

    "It failed the important test"

    December 19, 2013   |   By randy357

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 2013

    Pros

    It is easy to use to do a complete backup of a computer.

    Cons

    The recover disk could not see the backup on my external disk drive.

    Summary

    Being able to easily make a backup is only part of what the software should do. The important thing is that if your system crashes and you need to do a system restore, it is easy to do. Paragon Backup & Recovery allows you to make a recovery CD which is necessary when your system crashes and you need to perform a full restore. The problem is that the recovery CD does not like my external hard drive and therefor does not allow me do perform the recovery function. I could most likely move the recovery data from the disk drive to a flash drive and perform the recovery from that but this is a step that you don't want to have to take when the sky is falling around you and everything that you touch seems to break.

    If the recovery disk is going to have problems reading data off the disk drive, then the backup software should have stopped me from creating the backup.
