Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 16 (64-bit)

Editors' Review

by   / January 08, 2015

Paragon Backup & Recovery 14 Free (64-bit) creates full or partial backups of data or entire discs, on schedule or demand. More importantly, it addresses one of the two biggest obstacles keeping many Windows users from backing up their systems: cost. We tried the 64-bit version; a 32-bit download is also available.

Pros

It's free: Paragon's free recovery tool has the essential capabilities of its premium backup solutions, but with fewer options.

It's easy: The other obstacle to effective backups is usage: You can't rescue your system from a backup that doesn't exist. Too many users find backups confusing, but Paragon's Virtual Disc Wizard walks you through each step.

Recovery drive: The Recovery Media Builder creates bootable USB drives or ISO files that can help you boot a sick PC and run a backup.

Cons

User Manual: Clicking User Manual tells you to go the product's home page (no link) and download it yourself. A text Help file is included with the program files.

Go pro: Now that you're considering backup software, take time to be sure you don't need more than Paragon Backup & Recovery Free has to offer. Premium backup tools (like Paragon Backup & Recovery Home) cost much less than pro service or, worse, a new computer.

Bottom Line

No more excuses: Paragon Backup & Recovery 14 Free can back up and restore your Windows PC when things go drastically wrong -- but only if you run it before you need it! That's the other obstacle, and only you can address it.
