The Partition Manager offers an extensive range of functions for flexible partitioning, optimization and managing your computer. No matter whether you are restructuring your hard drive and dividing it up in partitions, redistributing free memory storage space, using several operating systems on the PC at once or want to work with virtual hard disks, Partition Manager puts a single first-class partitioning tool with powerful extra functions at your fingertips.
The Professional Edition offers the right solution to virtually any problem. It is the only solution on the market that provides partitioning functions for physical and virtual drives and adaptation functionality to all current hardware configurations within one product!
Partitioning your hard drive allows you to establish efficient data organization individually tailored to your purposes. Even if it gets complicated, the intuitive program assistants are sure to get you to your goal! Do you have plenty of space on one partition, but never enough on the other one? Redistribute insufficient memory storage space and define the partition size according to your needs. Or do you want to split a large partition into two small ones? Then define which files and folders you want to relocate to the new partition and redistribute any free memory storage space - that’s all there is to it! And merging partitions is just as easy.
The Paragon Connect VD technology enables you to work on virtual hard drives as if they were physical hard disks. Simply combine the virtual drive with the software and then perform all of the partitioning tasks. If you connect the virtual disk as a snapshot, you are saving all changes in a single snapshot, allowing you to carry out complex partitioning operations without losing data and virtually without downtime.
You can also create backups as a virtual hard drive which you can use as the basis for virtual machines.
If you need to install a second operating system on your Windows PC, you can allocate some space to create a new partition with Paragon Partition Manager by taking the unallocated on-disk space or the unused space of other partitions if necessary. Then format the newly created partition to a particular file system, check its surface for bad sectors to avoid possible data loss, and finally reboot the computer to launch the installation procedure.
With Paragon's Boot Manager you can now easily manage several operating systems.
The automatic partitioning alignment * ensures that the volumes cannot have their performance impaired by incorrectly aligned partitions. The software already aligns the partitions correctly during the partitioning process, thus optimizing the hard disk’s performance. Ideally configured partitions speed up all file system operations! The difference in performance between improperly aligned partitions and correctly aligned ones can add up to 300%!
By the way: Thanks to automatic partition alignment, you can always get top performance out of SSDs and hard disks with 4 KB sectors and RAID volumes.
With Paragon’s Smart-Partition™ technology, you can conduct your partitioning operations safely without losing a single data byte. Paragon Power Shield™ (power failure protection) ensures that no errors will occur even if there’s a blackout, and that critical operations will continue to be carried out as soon as the power goes back on.
Integrated Paragon backup functions allow you to create a backup before working on a hard drive. So if an operation doesn’t go as planned, it’s no big deal. The recovery wizard will get your system back up and running in no time.
The Recovery Media Builder 3.0 makes it extremely easy and flexible to create your recovery medium on a USB flash drive or save it as an ISO file, then burn a bootable CD/DVD. If your operating system won’t boot up anymore, you can fire up your PC with the bootable Paragon recovery environment on an external device and load in an existing backup, secure important data or rectify booting errors. The Professional edition allows to prepare either Linux/DOS or WinPE-based bootable recovery media.

* 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.
