Complete uEFI support
- A 64-bit Windows OS system configured to the uEFI boot mode can be adjusted to successfully start up on another hard disk during copy/restore accomplished directly under Windows. Previously the uEFI fixup was only available under WinPE;
- A 64-bit Windows OS system configured to the uEFI boot mode will successfully start up in a virtual environment after P2V migration;
- The Linux-based recovery environment supports systems configured to the uEFI boot mode;
- GPT/uEFI compatible Backup Capsule. If having to do with a 64-bit Windows system resided on GPT volumes, by selecting one additional option in the Manage Backup Capsule Wizard, you can build a WinPE-based bootable backup capsule to successfully start up PC from it in case of emergency
Enhanced backup format
Paragon introduces a pVHD (Paragon Virtual Hard Drive) format – a special VHD, optimized for storing backups of virtual and physical machines. It’s very efficient in handling incremental chains, data de-duplication and synchronization. What you get by using pVHD:
- Incremental imaging works much faster and rock-stable in comparison with the old PBF (10x faster increments to network shares);
- Instant virtualization ready. pVHD can be used to emulate a virtual disk container, thus allowing startup of the backed up system directly out of the backup image without restore;
- Besides pVHD, you're allowed to back up directly to any virtual container (VMDK, VHD, etc.)
Windows BitLocker support
Back up, restore, copy or change properties of volumes encrypted by this security feature. Combination of BitLocker and pVHD enables to achieve exceptional protection of OS and personal data from unauthorized access and from data loss
Uplifted Linux Recovery Environment
Started from HDM 14 the Linux-based recovery environment is based on SuSe 12.3 (more hardware devices supported) and includes:
- P2P Adjust OS Wizard to successfully migrate a Windows physical system to a different hardware platform (P2P);
- uEFI fixup to clone, restore, migrate 64-bit Windows systems configured to the uEFI boot mode;
- ConnectVD to connect a virtual disk as if it were an ordinary physical disk, thus opening up all functionality available for physical disks to virtual

Our product is now fully compatible with the Windows 8 streamlined, tile-oriented interface
- Metro-style Express Launcher;
- Ribbon-based full scale launcher;
GUI of the Linux recovery environment has also been uplifted
Apart from PBF images, Universal Image Mounter enables to mount (assign a drive letter to) pVHD backup images (full and incremental) to browse their contents and retrieve data both, in the program and directly under Windows OS
Uplifted Recovery Media Builder
Paragon’s Recovery Media Builder, a simple alternative to Boot Media Builder, can help you prepare either Linux or WinPE-based bootable environment on a USB thumb drive or in an ISO file (previously only creation of WinPE images on USB was supported). Unlike Boot Media Builder, it doesn’t require to have Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) or Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) installed in the system. However, it can only be used under Windows 7 or higher, and its functionality is rather limited

Windows Storage Spaces support
Windows 8 has come with a storage management feature called the storage spaces. It enables to easily manage large storage pools. In fact it's an expandable virtual container of defined data size, allowing users to add it as many physical drives as they want until the defined virtual disk’s limit is reached. This makes it easy to include additional storage devices without having to set up and manage each attached physical storage drive
Get to know the Redistribute Free Space Wizard that helps administrators to easily move disk space from file partitions to the system partition. A daily business task, accomplished within a few steps during the machine is up and running.
See here how to set up a backup task with a simple, yet effective retention policy. Choose which kind of backup you want to initiate, where to store it and how to handle the different, automatically created generations. Define a concrete disc quota and the maximum number of stored backups.
Discover how easy you can restore from a backup located on the network, using the WinPE Recovery Environment. After mapping the network drive within the recovery environment simply restore the backup to the system of your choice. Use the P2P Adjust OS wizard to automatically upload missing drivers and the restored system will boot on a new hardware.
Learn how to use the Backup Wizard to quickly and easily create a system backup (C: drive). Additional protection is provided by the File Transfer Wizard for files that are critical in a disaster recovery scenario (e.g. File Server Data).
See here how to seamlessly migrate a running Windows® Server to a virtualized environment at your choice and use all the benefits of Virtualization, e.g. Easier Management and Increased Availability of Applications by decreased energy cost.
See here how easily you can generate virtual clones of your Windows® Server System to use all the benefits of high-availability clusters. After processing a P2V copy operation the migration of the Windows® Server into a virtual environment is completed by adding drivers for the used SAS fibre channel controller, i.e. the Windows® Server starts up in a virtual environment with the given hardware configuration.
Use the bidirectional possibilities of state of the Art System Virtualization functionality to ensure minimum downtime in case of a disaster. The P2V-Wizard creates a virtual clone of the physical Windows® Server which in case of disaster can be with minimum efforts, easily and quickly restored into a virtual environment or to new or other hardware once available.
V2V migration features provide more flexibility for the management of virtual environments. Particularly, if you are using different hypervisors, the powerful V2V capabilities of Paragon Hard Disk Manager Premium allow you to move systems between the different virtualization flavors.
All major virtualization platforms available on the market today are supported and seamless migration between them is possible: Microsoft Virtual PC, Microsoft Virtual Server, Microsoft Hyper-V R1/R2, VWware Workstation, VMWare Fusion, VMWare ESX Server, and Oracle VirtualBox 4.0.
** Automatic partition alignment is always active during create/move operations, active during redistribute free space/resize operations only when the left partition boundary is affected, active during copy/restore operations with resize only.
