"Provides great range of information on disk structure"

November 06, 2010  |  By Trev16v

 |  Version: Paragon Partition Manager Free Edition 11.0

Pros

What I particularly like is that it shows much more comprehensive information about the disk and partitions compared to other popular utilities.

Cons

Nothing found to dislike as yet.

Summary

What I particularly like is that it shows much more comprehensive information about the disk and partitions compared to other popular utilities. For instance, when you're viewing the 'disk view' list, it's possible to right-click and choose from a large range of additional data columns. What's really helpful for me is how it gives a tree structure of the partitions, showing you how logical partitions belong within an extended partition, and so forth. It also properly identifies the file system on each one (for example, it correctly shows my NTFS, Linux Ext4 and Linux swap areas). In contrast, the other popular utilities (EASEUS, etc.) give quite a simplified view of the partition structure and don't always seem to be able to identify the various Linux file systems. That's not meant as a negative towards those other utilities - I've actually used those to do the partitioning and they've done a great job. Paragon is a great tool to have also however because from a geek point of view I like the range of data it can show you.

"Pretty Good"

October 17, 2010  |  By GrahamSivill

 |  Version: Paragon Partition Manager Free Edition 11.0

Pros

I like the fact that the software allows you to work through all the steps of an action so that you can examine the different options but waits until you have got the changes how you want before committing it.

Cons

Lots of options shown are greyed out because they are not available in the free version, I would rather they allowed you to use it for 15 days with all the options so that you can truly see what you would be getting in the paid version.

Summary

I liked it so much I bought the personal edition, there are still a large number of options greyed out that are only in the pro version. I wish they would remove those as it's annoyiong when you have paid for a product to be tantalised by features you haven't got. If I wanted them i would have bought the pro version.

As far as what does work it is very good not committing changes until you have completed all teh wizard steps so you always feel that you can back out at any time. This is a great feature in a product that could be used inadvertently to trash your data and is a good compromise between being too techy and too simplistic.

If you want a tool that makes changing disk partitions and backing up data this will do it.

I found this product when looking for "Partition Magic" which I had used in the past but is not compatible with Windows 7 and according to Symantec's site is no longer available:

http://us.norton.com/theme.jsp?themeid=partition_magic&depthpath=0&header=0

(As usual Symantec destroy a good product)

This will do as a good replacement and it does work on Windows 7.

Highly recommended by me.

"Works fine."

October 02, 2010  |  By hardbop50

 |  Version: Paragon Partition Manager Free Edition 11.0

Pros

Works as advertised.

Cons

Beware. If you're thinking of buying it, check and see if your bank will charge a foreign processing fee. Paragon discloses that it is a db as a foreign company but not does warn purchasers that their credit card may charge a foreign processing fee.

Summary

Watch out for the bank charge.
