"Works well on Win7 64 bit"

February 07, 2011  |  By dink48

 |  Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Advanced Edition 2010

Pros

A complete set of features, esp for free program. Images the hard drive, allowing you to truly restore your computer including all your programs (without reinstalling) to a new hard drive if needed. Ability to password protect your backup files.

Cons

Not necessarily intuitive. At the end of the backup wizard when you press the 'last' button and you think everything should start, there is still a final operation wherein you have to click "Apply changes" to actually start the backup process.

Summary

Worth far more than I paid (its free). Works very well, although I have never had to actually restore a backup, so can't vouch for that. A good advertisement for the company as it gives me a favorable impression of the quality of their other offerings.

"Great software, great results, fast, easy, intuitive!"

January 30, 2011  |  By ScreamingMetal

 |  Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Advanced Edition 2010

Pros

Its packed with features that you become used to after using.....you can actually grow into this! In its free form, it packs the power that alot of programs you have to pay to get. This is one of the best backup programs, bar non!

Cons

Non yet....but my eye is on it!

Summary

Well, I used Macrium Reflect. I still have it, just in case. I like the adjustability of the Paragon....its a dawm shame the Easeus Todo couldn't have taken the hint. I like my firewall and I should not have to unload it to do a backup. MR works good, but 1/2 thru its got a little quirk. From what I'm seeing....theres a New #1 Backup on my horizon...

"Terrible Product - Does Not Do What It Claims!"

January 27, 2011  |  By corwing

 |  Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Advanced Edition 2010

Pros

The only good thing I can truly say about this software is that it has a nice interface.

Cons

Does not work like they claim with the rescue cd. Cannot even load up when set to the normal mode. When set to the lesser settings mouse functions are lost and then you can only have keyboard to move around.

Summary

I am sure glad that I first tried it before wasting my money.

"Great. Get it. Works better then Macrium and Easeus."

January 14, 2011  |  By acerj

 |  Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Advanced Edition 2010

Pros

Does differential back up very easy. Fast, able to archive my 1TB HD in 30 min!
Will copy to a smaller HD if archive physical data is smaller. In other words

Cons

Archive mount to explore does not work with win 64 bit. But you can explore the archive to copy files.

Summary

Read the Manual first. The problem with Ghost is the cost. The problem with Acronis is that they offer NO customer support at ALL. Believe me go to their site all they offer is a support fourm. This is better then Macrium (which i have used) becasue you don't have to pay to do differential back-ups. Also you can copy to smaller Hard drives. If your HD that you back up is a 500gig HD and your using 250 gigs you can copy to a 250 gig or larger HD. To do this because the manual is not very clear on how. 1. creat a boot cd for Paragon. 2. make an archive of you HD. 3. boot from cd. 4 Use the restore wizard and only copy the first partition. 5. when that is donw then copy the other partitions one at a time. ( i use it and i trust it) if you ever have any question go to http://www.wilderssecurity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=108
We can answer any thing. I have used this program and it works.

"Impressive Freeware!!! A must have."

December 20, 2010

 |  Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Advanced Edition 2010

Pros

Easy to use; Nice GUI; Has on the fly file integrity checker.

Oh yeah, and it's FREE!!!

Cons

None really, except it would be nice if there was an option to check for updated versions through the program. Also it would be nice to be able to open the image, like with Acronis, and extract a single file. (But I'm still learning this program)

Summary

I use this along with Acronis True Image 2010. It's a nice layer of protection in the even my Acronis file becomes corrupted, which has happened in the past.

This is a must have for anybody, as you can't beat the price!

"Free and Works!"

December 15, 2010  |  By fujitsulover

 |  Version: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Advanced Edition 2010

Pros

Free and Works!

Cons

You need to have something to do while backup is occurring. Please check the screen periodically.

Summary

I tried 4 backup softwares, and like Acronis True Image Home 2011 the best! However, I gave that one away as a gift. I have no money left to buy another one, and found Paragon Backup & Recovery Free. It did the same thing that Acronis did except it is free. Acronis was free at one point in time. So, hurry and get this one because you never know. Acronis seems to have everything working except for a few minor glitches. Once Paragon has it all down, it may be another major commercial product!!!!!!!!!! Hurry up. Do not wait. Keep this program forever!;)
