Basic Backup & Restore

 
Sector-level Backup

Sector-level Backup


Sector-level Backup operates with an image (or a snapshot). It not only includes the contents of all user-made files, but additionally contains the exact structure of directories, information about file allocation, file attributes and other related data. Thus it enables to successfully process system or encrypted partitions of any file system type, no matter what kind of information they contain

Full Sector-level Backup


Full Sector-level Backup

Full Sector-level Backup is a backup image that includes all contents of a partition or a hard disk at the moment of its creation. If you roll back your system to the initial state on a regular basis, that’s exactly what you’re looking for

    null  

Full Sector-level Backup to VD


Full Sector-level Backup to VD

Full Sector-level Backup to Virtual Container (pVHD, VHD, VMDK) is a better approach for desktop virtualization and disaster recovery. It helps to reconstuct a Windows or Linux-based PC, including partition layout, partition data, and boot data. An image can be mounted as a virtual hard drive for use with a virtual machine

    null  
File-level Backup

File-level Backup


File-level Backup takes into account a file system structure and only functions on a file or folder level. So it is very efficient when archiving separate files or folders, but in no way will help you back up a system partition

Full File-level Backup to VD


Full File-level Backup to VD

Paragon's innovative backup imaging technology has been further improved and now opens up the option of creating file-level virtual containers, thus offering users rock-stable, high-performance technology to protect system and data not only on sector level, but file level as well

    null

Full File-level Backup


Full File-level Backup

Full File-level Backup only contains files and folders. It is really efficient when backing up an e-mail database or particular documents, as no redundant data is processed

    null  
Backup Destination

Local Disks / Network


Local Disks / Network

Local Disks / Network. Local partitions is the most convenient option, but try not to use it. You can delete your backup accidentally or lose it as a result of a hardware malfunction, or a virus attack. Storing backup images on a network drive gives a better chance of success in case of a hard disk failure, especially when using a special-purpose server

    null  

Backup Capsule


Backup Capsule

Backup Capsule has an independent system layout and will stay operable should the active file system be damaged. Thus it grants an additional level of security to archives it contains. It can be bootable

    null

Sector-level Backup

It not only includes the contents of all user-made files, but additionally contains the exact structure of directories, information about file allocation, file attributes and other related data. Thus it enables to successfully process system or encrypted partitions of any file system type, no matter what kind of information they contain

Differential Backup


Differential Backup

Differential Backup is good for regular backup, as it only archives changes since the last full sector-based image, thus considerably saving the backup storage space

    null  

Sector Increment


Sector Increment

Sector Increment is a further way of optimizing the process of disk imaging. Unlike differentials, it may not only contain data changed since the time of creating a full sector-based archive, but one of its increments as well, thus allowing to save more time and the backup storage

    null  

Sector Increment to VD


Sector Increment to VD

Sector-level Incremental Imaging to Virtual Container (pVHD, VHD, VMDK) works much faster and rock-stable in comparison with the old PBF (10x faster incremental backup to NAS). Users are allowed to create several incremental chains based on one base image, provided each chain contains changed data of a particular backup object(s), which is opens up much flexibility in managing backup contents

    null  
Agentless Hyper-V Backup

Agentless Hyper-V Backup


Unlike traditional backup tools designed to work with physical machines, our product can operate at the virtualization layer, employing MS VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to agentlessly backup/restore any guest machine of Hyper-V. Thus our solution doesn’t need an agent on a target virtual machine to create its point-in-time copy including its configuration, operating system, apps, etc.

The current version can only protect entire virtual machines (online or offline) registered on a local Hyper-V host, where our product is deployed. External hosts with their guest machines are not supported, please use Paragon’s Protect & Restore to accomplish this type of scenarios. Hyper-V guest machines can be backed up directly to pVHD, VMDK, VHD, or VHDX virtual containers. If using VHD/VHDX as target backup format, you can attach the resulted backup image to an existing virtual machine of Hyper-V and OS will be launched successfully. If using pVHD – there will be available additional options like high-level compression, encryption, or image splitting. Resulted virtual containers can be stored on a local disk (mounted/unmounted), a mapped network share, or by UNC path. To optimize storage capacities our product supports the incremental imaging, where each new increment describes the changes between the current state of the backup object and the previous state.

Retention Wizard for VD


Retention Wizard for VD

Retention Wizard for VD helps to set up unattended backup operations involving regular creation of full or incremental virtual containers controlled by special backup data retention policies. This tool is fully compliant with the so called set-and-forget backup strategies. Unlike Cyclic Backup that works with PBF images, Retention Wizard for VD offers more flexibility in configuring regular backup routines:

 

- It can process separate partitions or entire hard disks;

- It can do full and incremental images;

- Its retention mechanism is more efficient.
