Paragon Snapshot for Mac OS X

The first snapshot technology announced for OS X imaging

  • The first snapshot technology for OS X

  • The only solution for sector-level imaging

  • 2-4 times faster than file-level backup/restore procedures!

  • Based on market-proven UFSD technology

Block-level imaging

Paragon Snapshot for Mac is the only technology, which allows you to create block-level archives of OS X volumes. This means that a backup would only contain changed blocks, as opposed in size to file-level imaging solutions.


100% safe data imaging

Snapshot technology gracefully deals with file systems, which are not natively supported by Mac (e.g NTFS or ExtFS of Windows and Linux OSes), thus ensuring data integrity and safety. 



Flexible licensing

Depending on particular needs, Paragon Software provides very flexible licensing packages, whether you are an independent software developer or represent a large disaster recovery solution vendor.



Why Paragon Snapshot for Mac?


  • Mac computers become increasingly popular in the content development and many other business segments where data-loss can be a nightmare. Retrieval of data, multimedia and system files can be a very risky task.
  • The majority of current backup solutions for OS X work at a file level. As a result, a file-level backup archive contains all files at different moments of time, so their states may differ. Users may not be aware of this issue and continue changing particular files that reside within a group of files which require consistency. File-based backups do not guarantee the consistency for a group of files, compared to sector-level snapshot-based image. The advantage of a snapshot in comparison is, the image-based backup contains changes made at the very moment the snapshot is taken, so all the associated files in the group are in the same state.
  • Paragon Snapshot for Mac package includes a single-license SDK for both OEMs and ISVs who may want to build their backup (or some kind of other) software solutions. 


Benchmark tests

Many benchmarks tests prove that system restore from a snapshot-based backup takes considerably less time compared to recovery from a file-based backup. This ensures shorter OS downtime and quicker access to required data, which is absolutely critical for businesses and equally important to end-users.


When it comes to incremental backup, recovery from a snapshot-based image of a typical OS X workstation of Paragon Software’s QA engineers ran 4 times faster in comparison to a recovery from a file-based backup. Furthermore, the larger the size of an archive, the more notable this difference becomes. Please, refer to the detailed comparison report between Apple Time Machine and Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac (uses the snapshot technology).
