Paragon Software’s Collaboration with Microsoft Empowers Customers to Easily Share Large Data Between Storage and Mobile Devices

FREIBURG, Germany – January 23, 2017Paragon Software Group (PSG), the cross-platform technology leader in mobile device and embedded system solutions, announces Paragon exFAT for Android – the industry’s first consumer edition of the exFAT (Extended File Allocation System) file system technology for Android users that makes it possible to exchange data between external storage media larger than 32 GB and all the latest consumer electronics.   Paragon exFAT for Android is a component of Paragon USB Plugin for Total Commander to offer instant, non-root, offline access to exFAT data from external storage drives directly on Android smartphones and tablets. For better on-the-go organization and easy mobile access, Paragon exFAT for Android allows users to easily view, backup, copy, and edit important documents, photos, videos, music, and other files between Android mobile devices and portable hard drives or flash drives. For this tool, Paragon Software Group is partnering with Microsoft.

 

“We are excited to collaborate with Microsoft by bringing to the market the industry’s first consumer edition of exFAT file system support and to make it available directly to Android users. One of the most difficult areas of cross-platform computing still remains data sharing between incompatible systems. While networking between the operating systems has become a lot easier, storage sharing is still problematical because of patented file system limitations,” said Paragon Software Group’s CEO Konstantin Komarov.

 

“Microsoft is pleased that this new partnership with cross-platform software developer Paragon Software will offer mobile consumers more options and flexibility. By enabling file sharing across operating systems, this agreement demonstrates Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to empower customers and businesses to achieve even more,” said Microsoft’s Vice President and Associate General Counsel Micky Minhas.

 

For many users who want to travel light, smartphones and tablets have already replaced laptops. Previously available only as a license-based solution for OEMs, now for the first time this technology is available to Android consumers who require data access to previously incompatible storage devices directly on their mobile devices.

 

Paragon exFAT for Android is based on Paragon Software Group’s exclusive Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology, which enables any device to communicate and share files regardless of operating system. The technology incorporates portable implementation support for USB Mass Storage Stack. Beyond access, Paragon UFSD technology provides the highest data throughput speeds possible — equivalent to, or exceeding, native performance.

  

The company invites potential OEM partners and interested media to schedule an appointment with Paragon Software’s executives at Mobile World Congress February 27 through March 2, 2017. To schedule an appointment, please contact us at technology@paragon-software.com

Paragon exFAT for Android is available as a technology component of the newly updated Paragon USB Plugin for Total Commander for Android device users: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paragon.tcplugins_ntfs_ro, as well as for licensing to OEMs and ODMs as components of Paragon Storage SDK for Android: https://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/universal-file-system-drivers/storage-sdk-android/index.html.

Windows NTFS, Linux File Systems on the Rise with Mac Users: Five Percent of macOS Users Work with at Least Three Incompatible File Systems

FREIBURG, Germany, December 21, 2016Paragon Software Group, the cross-platform technology leader in innovative mobile device and embedded system solutions, reports that Paragon UFSD (Universal File System Driver) Value Pack– a bundle of five essential cross-platform tools providing access to non-native file systems — has been installed by five percent of Paragon NTFS for Mac users, showing that every 20 macOS users work with at least three incompatible file system standards, demonstrating increasing market demand for cross-platform products. Previously available as licensing-based technology to consumer electronics manufacturers, in September, 2016 Paragon’s UFSD technology became available for the first time as a bundle pack targeted at individual users. Judging from installation data recorded during the first two months of availability, five percent of customers upgraded from NTFS for Mac 14 to UFSD Value Pack, a clear sign that five percent of macOS users work with at least three incompatible file system standards.

 

Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes NTFS for Mac, ExtFS for Mac, HFS+ for Windows, ExtFS for Windows, and NTFS-HFS Converter. The UFSD Value Pack has been developed to instantly solve compatibility issues for users working with multiple file systems. The Pack comes with a lifetime free upgrade guarantee for just $49.95 — a savings of nearly $100 compared to purchasing each tool separately. For existing Paragon NTFS for Mac 14, ExtFS for Mac 10, or HFS+ for Windows 11 customers, the UFSD Value Pack is available for only $19.95.

 

“I use the UFSD Value Pack personally and professionally. Personally, I have dual-boot laptops and desktops, and need to transfer information between the two systems as I work on different tasks. Professionally, I use Paragon products to transfer information from older hard drives onto new equipment, or recover information from damaged or unusable machines,” says John Hall, UFSD Value Pack user. “Paragon provides a single source for all major file systems – NTFS, HFS, and Ext3.  Having a single solution is important, so I have a single installation or upgrade, one place to contact for any issues, and a consistent approach.”

 

Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes essential tools required for unprecedented high-performance read and write access to NTFS, HFS+, and ExtFS partitions from macOS or Windows-based systems, at the same time delivering lower CPU load and power consumption. With Paragon UFSD Value Pack installed, dual-boot users can easily write files to NTFS-formatted USB flash drives, SSDs, or traditional hard drives, and copy data to NAS-based storage from a macOS-based computer.

 

Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes:

  • Paragon NTFS for Mac ® 14: Full, ultra-fast read/write access to NTFS partitions under macOS.
  • Paragon ExtFS for Mac ® 10: Full read/write access to Ext2/3/4 partitions under macOS with data transfer rate comparable to native file system performance. The same driver also checks, repairs, creates, and formats Ext2/3/4 volumes.
  • Paragon HFS+ for Windows ® 11: The only solution with full access to HFS+ partitions on disks of any type (GPT, MBR), with higher transfer rates than native HFS file-system performance.
  • Paragon ExtFS for Windows ®: Fast and transparent access to Ext2/Ext3/Ext4 partitions under Windows; read and write support for LVM (Logical Volume Management).
  • Paragon NTFS-HFS Converter: Convert NTFS volumes to HFS+ and vice-versa, with a backup option.
  • Lifetime free upgrade guarantee: Free upgrades for all included tools delivered directly to the user’s personal MyParagon account, plus free online support.
 

Under licensing agreements, Paragon’s UFSD technology have already been successfully embedded into tens of millions devices worldwide by the industry’s major manufacturers such as Cisco, Dell, HP, Western Digital, ASUS, Seagate, Toshiba, Belkin, LG Electronics, Logitech, Buffalo, Netgear, Acer, EMC, Siemens, D-Link, Lenovo, and many others to provide non-native storage expandability. Fast and rock-solid read and write access to external storage via USB in embedded devices allows customers use standard USB HDDs and flash-drives formatted under Windows (NTFS) or macOS X (HFS+) without the need to reformat them. UFSD can be integrated into embedded devices to access the exFAT file system, which is required for SD XC support (SD Cards exceeding 32GB) following the SD Alliance storage standards. Easily customizable, Paragon’s technology makes external storage in embedded devices cross-compatible like never before, opening multiple options to users. For example, in contrast to the open source FUSE/NTFS3G-based file system drivers, Paragon UFSD™ NTFS driver is implemented at the kernel-level, resulting in a significantly improved read/write performance.

 

Availability:

Paragon UFSD Value Pack is available for $49.95 and can be downloaded from https://www.paragon-software.com/home/ufsd-value-pack/ A lifetime free upgrade guarantee for four key bundled products is included.

For existing Paragon NTFS for Mac 14, ExtFS for Mac 10 and HFS+ for Windows 11 customers, the UFSD Value Pack is available for just $19.95. For purchasers of Paragon NTFS for Mac 12, the UFSD Value Pack is available for $24.95.

Paragon Software Group Chosen by Monument Labs, Inc. to Enhance Connectivity for AI-Driven Personal Cloud Device

Irvine, California and Chicago, Illinois – December 6, 2016 – Paragon Software Group today announced its Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology has been selected to expand connectivity capabilities for an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven personal cloud device developed by Monument Labs, Inc., which was named one of the hottest 100 startups of 2016 by Wired Magazine (UK).

 

The new agreement, which is effective immediately, calls for three Paragon UFSD offerings, including NTFS for Linux, HFS+ for Linux and FAT32 for Linux, to be embedded in the Monument desktop device. By leveraging Paragon’s technology, Monument users can attach their NTFS (Windows), HFS+ (Mac) and FAT-formatted storage devices to their Monument personal cloud solution to gain rapid, transparent and full read/write access to these non-native file systems.

 

The embedded Paragon drivers feature powerful utilities that maintain file system integrity and fully protect stored data, while delivering high performance for smooth playback and recording of Full HD video content including 4K video.

 

“Paragon is playing a strategic role in the success of our groundbreaking personal cloud device by enhancing storage and connectivity options for our customers through seamless cross-platform interoperability,” said Semih Hazar, CTO of Monument Labs, Inc. “This alliance brings significant value to our company as well as our customers, and we look forward to a bright future ahead with Paragon’s support.”

 

Based in Chicago, Monument Labs’ desktop device is the first of its kind to use AI to create a secure, instantly organized repository for treasured photos and videos. Monument has all the benefits of cloud storage, with greater ease of use and security, according to Semih. The device uses standard USB disk drives to create a “personal cloud” accessible from anywhere in the world via smartphone, tablet or PC.

 

Featuring AI algorithms that automatically sort content according to time, location and even people, the device also includes facial recognition software that identifies individuals who can then be browsed and/or recalled whenever desired. Collections can be searched according to what’s inside the device: For example, type in “summer,” “snow,” “Christmas” or “Uncle Bob” and the appropriate photos and videos will be recalled in seconds.

 

“Monument has hit the ground running with a revolutionary AI-driven offering that solves the challenge of organizing, storing and accessing digital memories in an innovative and cost effective way,” said Tom Fedro, President, Paragon Software Group Corp. “The Paragon team is proud to align with Monument to deliver seamless connectivity, greater storage flexibility and a better customer experience to their installed base.”

About Monument

 

Selected as one of the 100 hottest startups of 2016 by Wired Magazine (UK), Monument is the world’s first artificially intelligent “personal cloud” device for photos and videos. The company launched its Kickstarter campaign earlier this year and made $876K in pre-orders from crowdfunding. Developed by a small team of professionals, Monument eliminates monthly fees and security concerns of traditional cloud storage. Even more, it makes organizing and recalling photos and videos incredibly easy thanks to its advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms that recognize scenes, dates, even faces. Monument supports uploads from any SD card or via smartphone using Wi-Fi, and displays collections anywhere using a smartphone, tablet, or PC. Visit www.getmonument.com for more information.

Breathe New Life into Your Old PC with Paragon Migrate OS 5.0 – One-Step Migration to New Storage Devices

FREIBURG, Germany, October 24, 2016Paragon Software Group (PSG), the leader in data backup, disaster recovery and data migration solutions, announces Paragon Migrate OS 5.0, a one-step tool to help with Windows systems migration to new storage devices – solid-state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs). Paragon Migrate OS 5.0 instantly performs fast and safe Windows migrations and even downsizes to smaller capacity drives, thanks to advanced data exclusion capabilities. You can transfer a live system with no impact to your work, and have your partitions automatically aligned in the process, if needed. The new release fully supports Windows 10 and comes with an even more intuitive UI providing easy access to the software's step-by-step migration wizard.

 

According to data analysis by Statista, SSD shipments in the last few years have increased drastically – from 39 million units in 2012 to the estimated 189.6 million in 2017. In the fourth quarter of 2015, Samsung shipped the largest quantity and held a market share of almost half of SSD unit shipments. As PC users seek to take advantage of SSDs’ better access time, read/write speeds, and resistance to physical shock from drops, the challenge becomes moving massive amounts of data, applications and the operating system from the existing hard drive to a smaller SSD. Paragon Migrate OS to SSD is a handy tool that transfers any Windows version since XP to any capacity storage disk in a single operation.
Paragon’s intuitive wizard in Migrate OS to SSD simplifies the migration process, automatically downsizing the source system volume and providing intelligent selection of specific files when migrating to smaller-capacity drives, and auto-aligning copied system partitions – all without rebooting the system.

 

New and major features in Paragon Migrate OS 5.0:

  • NEW! Support for Windows 10;
  • NEW! Windows 10-style GUI;
  • The option to build a WinPE bootable media to do migrations or to fix various boot problems without installing the product;
  • Migration of 64-bit Windows systems configured to the uEFI-based boot mode directly, under Windows, without any work interruption or having to reboot.

 

Key product features include:

  • Migrates Windows to larger or smaller storage devices in a single operation;
  • With WinPE bootable media supports all Windows systems since XP, including Windows 10;
  • Migrates 64-bit Windows systems configured to the uEFI-based boot mode;
  • Automatically aligns partitions on the destination disk, if necessary;
  • Automatically detects and copies Microsoft Reserved Partition (MSR) for successful migrations of Windows 10;
  • Allows the user to exclude data during the process in order to fit in to the destination disk;
  • Processes locked (in-use) disks with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) to migrate without rebooting Windows;
  • Includes Paragon's time-proven move/resize functionality;
  • Guarantees safety for the system and data.

 

The technology that powers Paragon Migrate OS 5.0 comes from Paragon's Hard Disk Manager, the company's recently upgraded full-function disk management toolkit that also provides optimization of NTFS volumes, Windows migration to dissimilar hardware, backup and recovery, simplified virtualization of an existing system, and more.

 

Pricing & Availability: Paragon Migrate OS 5.0 is available for a limited offer price of $13.96 (regular price $19.95) via download from https://shop.paragon-software.com/80/uurl-irpuey6620 or at https://www.paragon-software.com/home/migrate-OS-to-SSD/index.html

Before Upgrading to Sierra, Back Up with Paragon’s Hard Disk Manager for Mac, Now Optimized to Support the Latest macOS Release

FREIBURG, Germany, October 18, 2016Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data backup, disaster recovery, and data migration solutions, announces an update Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac, a powerful tool to protect, maintain, and manage your macOS system, now with full support for the latest macOS Sierra. All current users of the product receive a free update to this unique software tool, which covers every aspect of a Mac’s computer life cycle, from drive partitioning and regular backup to system migration, flexible disaster recovery options, and secure wiping of recycled storage.

 

macOS Sierra is Apple's latest operating system, which adopts a new name consistent with iOS, watchOS, and tvOS. Upgrading to any new OS can be a risky process — before installing, it’s highly recommended to perform a full backup of your Mac. Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac goes beyond just backup, with sector-level Snapshot data processing that enables users to perform live imaging and migration of an entire Mac — including the operating system, applications, and files — without interrupting your daily work routine. Advanced functionality includes the resizing of partitions, redistribution of free space, and other disk operations. macOS systems ship with integrated partitioning features, but these are limited to the most basic tasks. For example, modifying the partition table at a later date isn’t particularly easy to do, and Mac users are unable to change partition properties or resize file systems other than native HFS+.

 

Key Features:

  • Full support for macOS Sierra
  • Sector-level Snapshot backup delivers superior backup and recovery speed, plus improved overall performance. Paragon’s Snapshot performs live imaging of the entire Mac, including OS, applications, and files, all without a system restart.
  • Incremental imaging is the most efficient backup method for keeping data up-to-date by excluding data duplicates and minimizing the backup storage footprint for several timestamps of the same data.
  • Free space redistribution on adjacent partitions without restarting Mac.
  • Apple Core Storage: Backup and restore any type of Core Storage configurations including FileVault 2 (Full Disk Encryption) and Fusion Drive.
  • Apple System Integrity Protection: Accomplish operations otherwise prohibited by SIP from bootable recovery media or by turning off SIP to perform operations directly in macOS.
  • Boot Media Builder: Create a bootable USB thumb drive or external drive to restore macOS system volumes or accomplish drive partitioning in macOS Sierra 10.12.
  • Disk cloning: Transfer not only macOS but Boot Camp Windows volumes as well, resizing partitions while copying proportionally to the size of the target disk or any way you need it.
  • Wide restore options include restore of macOS, Boot Camp Windows, any set of data partitions, or of the entire Mac to the original or a new location; fast restore of individual files by mounting backup images in read-only mode; restore with various resize options.
  • Virtualization ready: Back up your Mac into a VMDK container and launch the system in VMware Fusion environment or vice versa.
  • Data wiping: Irreversibly destroy information on a volume, permanently removing remnants of deleted files and directories on the disk.
  • Data containers support: HDM for Mac supports VMDK and pVHD (Paragon Virtual Hard Drive), a special VHD image optimized for backups of virtual and physical machines. pVHD removes the limitations of standard virtual drive formats, such as a poor compression ratio, integrity control, and encryption capabilities. As a result, it creates backups that are up to four times smaller than original backup objects!
  • Fix Windows boot issues: If a Windows OS volume refuses to boot after replacing a failed hardware device, boot virus activity, or other issue, our boot repair tools can be used before taking more radical action.
  • Partition schemes support: HDM for Mac not only supports GUID Partition Table (GPT), Master Boot Record (MBR), and hybrid (GPT+MBR) partition schemes, but also allows easy non-destructive conversion between partition types.
  • Rich file system support: Create, format, resize, or change properties of HFS+, NTFS, ExtFS, FAT, and exFAT partitions.

 

System Requirements: macOS Sierra 10.12 or earlier.

 

Pricing & Availability: Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac is available for immediate download as a free 10-day trial or can be purchased direct for $39.95 (€39.95) at https://www.paragon-software.com/home/hdm-mac/. For current users of Paragon Hard Disk Manager, the update to the version supporting macOS Sierra is free.

  • Incremental imaging is the most efficient backup method for keeping data up-to-date by excluding data duplicates and minimizing the backup storage footprint for several timestamps of the same data.
  • Free space redistribution on adjacent partitions without restarting Mac.
  • Apple Core Storage: Backup and restore any type of Core Storage configurations including FileVault 2 (Full Disk Encryption) and Fusion Drive.
  • Apple System Integrity Protection: Accomplish operations otherwise prohibited by SIP from the bootable recovery media or switch off SIP to perform all operations directly in OS X.
  • Boot Media Builder: Create a bootable USB thumb drive or external drive to restore OS X system volumes or accomplish drive partitioning in El Capitan 10.11.
  • Disk cloning: Transfer not only OS X, but Boot Camp Windows volumes as well, resizing partitions while copying proportionally to the size of the target disk or any way you need it.
  • Wide restore options include restore of OS X, Boot Camp Windows, any set of data partitions, or of the entire Mac to the original or new location; fast restore of individual files by mounting backup images in the read-only mode; restore with various resize options.
  • Virtualization ready: Back up your Mac into a VMDK container and launch the system in VMware Fusion environment or vice versa.
  • Data wiping: Irreversibly destroy information on a volume, or only remnants of deleted files and directories on the disk.
  • Data containers support: VMDK, VDI, VHD or HDD. HDM for Mac also supports pVHD (Paragon Virtual Hard Drive), a special VHD image optimized for backups of virtual and physical machines. pVHD eliminates the limitations of standard virtual drive formats, such as a poor compression ratio, integrity control, and encryption capabilities. As a result, it creates backups that are up to four times smaller than original backup objects!
  • Fix Windows boot issues: If Windows OS volume refuses to boot after replacing a failed hardware device, boot virus activity, or other issue, our boot repair tools can be used prior to taking more radical actions.
  • Partition schemes support: HDM for Mac not only supports GUID Partition Table (GPT), Master Boot Record (MBR), and hybrid (GPT+MBR) partition schemes, but also allows easy non-destructive conversion between them.
  • Rich file system support: Create, format, resize, change properties of HFS+, NTFS, ExtFS, FAT, and exFAT partitions.

 

System Requirements: OS X 10.7 or later.

Paragon NTFS for Mac Awarded Mittelstand's IT Innovation Award at CeBIT

Freiburg, Germany - Paragon Software Group is proud to announce Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 has received the Best of IT Innovation 2016, in the category of "Data Management" at CeBIT 2016. The app was selected by the Initiative Mittelstand from thousands of submissions, honoring the popular OS X utility with this prestigious award.

 

Paragon's popular OS X utility allows anyone to easily access Windows NTFS-formatted hard disk partitions. OS X 10.11 El Capitan's new System Integrity Protection (SIP) feature prevents the use of third-party disk utilities in OS X Disk Utility. Paragon NTFS for Mac overcomes this limitation, simplifying management of such volumes in El Capitan.

 

Paragon NTFS for Mac allows users to check and repair the file system integrity of NTFS partitions via the app's graphical interface, using its volume management functions, instead of using complicated command line tools, as is required by other utilities of this type.

 

"While Mac OS X allows users to easily read from Windows NTFS formatted partitions, it doesn't allow them to write files to such a drive without entering arcane commands into Terminal, or allow them to fix any problems that a volume's file system might incur," says Paragon Software Group owner Konstantin Komarov. "Paragon NTFS for Mac allows users to read, write, run diagnostics, and fix any issues with NTFS volumes directly from its graphical volume management interface, simplifying the use of NTFS formatted volumes on the Mac."

 

Users can conveniently use Paragon NTFS for Mac to easily navigate the contents of any NTFS drive, allowing them to read, edit, copy, or create files and folders on the drive. The app provides fast and transparent access to any NTFS partition while running OS X 10.11.

 

Features:

* Full NTFS support under OS X 10.11 El Capitan

* Ultra-quick read/write access to NTFS files

* No limit to file or partition sizes (within NTFS and OS X constraints)

* Supports special NTFS functions, including: resource forks, hardlinks, symlinks and file permissions

* File operations on NTFS partitions are just as good as those on native HFS partitions

* Unparalleled stability

* Simply install it, reboot, and go to work

 

Version 14 of Paragon NTFS for Mac is the only solution on the market to match native driver speed on Solid State Drives (SSDs) for reading, writing, creating, editing, copying, or transferring NTFS partitions. Paragon's own internal tests show Paragon NTFS 14 for Mac achieved 700MB/sec (write) and 800MB/sec (read) on the internal SSD of a MacBook Pro. The app also performs well as HFS+ with external drives, registering 250MB/sec write and 240MB/sec read speeds on a two-SSD RAID device, and 210MB/sec write and 210MB/sec read speeds on an ordinary external drive. (The drive used was a 2TB USB 3.0 Seagate Expansion Drive 3.5").

 

The new version is also fully compatible with Apple's new OS X 10.11 El Capitan operating system. Plus, it still supports versions of OS X going back to 10.8 Mountain Lion. Users of OS X 10.7 Lion and earlier can download a copy of Paragon NTFS for Mac - Yosemite Free, which is available with full functionality for dual-boot users of OS X 10.6 through OS X 10.10.

 

With the debut of OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Apple introduced a new system protection feature called System Integrity Protection, which prevents modifications to certain system files, folders and processes. This adds a layer of protection for the system by only allowing system binaries to be modified by the system installer and software updates. El Capitan no longer allows code injection and runtime attachments to system binaries, as was allowed by previous versions of the operating system. Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 is fully compatible with this new security feature, allowing safe and hassle-free access to NTFS partitions.

 

Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 is just the latest in a proud history of utilities developed by Paragon, who has been the leader in cross-platform storage software for 20 years. The company's apps provide proven maximum performance, stability and security for cross-platform work between Mac, Windows and other operating systems.

 

System Requirements:

* OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion through OS X 10.11 El Capitan

* 64-bit Processor

* 256MB RAM

 

Pricing and Availability:

Paragon NTFS for Mac 14 is only $19.95 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available worldwide exclusively through the Paragon website. Review copies are available upon request. Paragon offers a 10-day free trial of the app for users who wish to try before they buy. Paragon NTFS for Mac - Yosemite Free is also available with full functionality for dual-boot users of OS X 10.6 through OS X 10.10.

Paragon Software Releases Major Update to Camptune X 10.10

FREIBURG, Germany, February 2, 2016Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data backup, disaster recovery, and data migration solutions, announces the release of a major update to Paragon Camptune X 10.10, the system utility for easy and fast redistribution of disk space on OS X systems. The updated version comes with a redesigned user interface, and allows owners of the free edition to also work with Boot Camp.

 

New and improved features:

 
  • 2GB can now be reallocated between OS X and Windows absolutely free, particularly convenient for urgent, last-minute changes to available disk space.
 
  • The new interface design is more intuitive and user-friendly.
 

Ivan Sidorin, product manager: "We have improved the overall impression of working with the Camptune X application, which has been redesigned to be more convenient from the user’s perspective. We pay close attention to how the user interacts with the software. The new version also improves overall reliability. Finally, we’ve made it more convenient for users of the free edition — for example, if you’re running out of disk space on the Windows partition and urgently need to preserve system updates or other files under 2GB in size. With Paragon Camptune X 10.10, you can now do it in just one click without having to purchase the full version."

 

About Paragon Camptune X:

 

Camptune X solves the main problem faced by users of the Boot Camp feature on Macs: The lack of internal storage space. With Camptune X installed, Mac users can redistribute free space between OS X and Windows quickly and without data loss, easily adding gigabytes of free space that can be used by either operating system.

 

After installing Windows on a Mac using Apple’s Boot Camp utility, you will eventually face the problem of available free space on one of the partitions. Previously, solving this problem required deleting the Windows partition entirely, creating a new partition, then reinstalling the operating system and applications. Paragon Software Group specialists found an easier way, and the result is a utility called Camptune.

 

Apple's Mac OS X delivers the most reliable and convenient desktop operating system. Thanks to Paragon Camptune X, Mac users receive not only additional new features, but the ability to use them without restriction on a wide variety of software for Windows OS as well.

 

Paragon Camptune X supports Core Storage technology, detects and automatically fixes unsynchronized partition layout, and other file system errors.

 

The new, more intuitive interface is based on elements of Mac OS X. The latest Camptune X version comes with support for Core Storage, technology widely used in the latest OS X generations. This means Camptune X effectively works with a PC equipped with Fusion Drive, and those that use FileVault encryption technology.

 

Supported OS:

 

OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard to OS X 10.11 El Capitan
