    "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.

    "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.

    "Great way to make an image of your hard drive"

    October 11, 2013  |   By fred_66f

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 2013

    Pros

    This is a professional program that works well. It is a great way to make an image of your hard drive. I have burned images to DVD and saved to a USB drive. You can create a restore disk that can boot and restore your image.

    Cons

    When trying to restore using the boot disk, I had some trouble using the simple restore program. The restore worked fine using the full version of the program.

    Summary

    Now that Microsoft is going to kill off XP, it is time to save a good image of your XP computer. If your computer gets a virus or just starts running poorly in the future, you will not be able to reinstall XP. If you save an image, you can restore that image any time and have your PC back to normal.

    "Obscurities replete --- Read below"

    August 27, 2013  |   By Reuven_10

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 2013

    Pros

    None to report yet

    Cons

    Backed-up to the 2nd. hard drive. When attempted to RESTORE, I discovered that the drive letters *did not correspond to the WinXP assigned letters.*
    As a test, I tried to restore to one of the empty 3 partitions I had on the 2nd. hard drive --> the error msg. was "Impossible to restore." I guess the software is unable to restore from the back-up file residing on Windows partition on the 2nd. hard drive to an empty partition on the same drive.

    I will have to install a 3rd. hard drive and try to Restore to this drive. Until than, I'll treat Paragon as unreliable back-up.

    Summary

    Not for the faint-of-heart....

    "EASY TO USE, FRIENDLY INTERFACE"

    August 21, 2013  |   By PAPete214

    Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 2013

    Pros

    As far as I can tell, the free version is totally free and not a trial. The only condition for use is you must register in order to download it--Not a big deal.
    The interface is cleanly laid out and it's easy to use. Fairly snappy backup time. Restores without a problem. Had to restore one photo file after I accidentally deleted it. No problem finding it on the backup.

    Cons

    None so far...

    Summary

    Excellent backup software and you can't beat the price!!!
