Paragon Software’s Collaboration with Microsoft Empowers Customers to Easily Share Large Data Between Storage and Mobile Devices
FREIBURG, Germany – January 23, 2017 – Paragon 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 email@example.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, 2016 – Paragon 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:
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.
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.

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, 2016 – Paragon 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+.
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.

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.
* 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.
* 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, 2016 – Paragon 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:
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.
OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard to OS X 10.11 El Capitan
The free update is available at https://www.paragon-software.com/home/camptune/index.html
Paragon Software Announces Storage UFSD SDK for UEFI
FREIBURG, Germany, January 2016 – Paragon Software Group, the technology leader in data security and data management solutions, announces the release of its Universal File System Driver (UFSD) software development kit for Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). The new SDK expands the possibilities for system management and security software vendors working in UEFI environments. The technology allows system vendors and motherboard manufacturers to make their UEFI systems more competitive and user-friendly.
Introduced by Intel in 2005 as a replacement for the aging MBR (Master Boot Record) and PC BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) interfaces, UEFI now comes standard on new computers, where it is positioned between the operating system and firmware stacks. Despite advantages over traditional BIOS and MBR, UEFI is technically limited by its support for FAT32 (File Allocation Table), an outdated file system, which restricts file sizes to less than four gigabytes. In an effort to address this problem, motherboard manufacturers have started to implement read-only NTFS support into their UEFI firmware — but this only solves half of the problem.
With the release of UFSD SDK for UEFI, Paragon Software now delivers a complete read/write solution. Based upon the company’s industry-proven, cross-platform Universal File System Driver library used around the world in billions of devices such as smartphones, tablets, routers, networked storage, and cameras, the new SDK opens transparent, full read/write support for Windows-native NTFS, Linux-native ExtFS, and other file systems in the UEFI pre-boot environment.
Paragon’s UFSD drivers work through the "simple file system protocol," allowing software developers familiar with UEFI system calls to utilize the same APIs already used for FAT32 to access NTFS and ExtFS volumes. Developers can now put more focus on the workflow and usability of their programs, rather than worrying about low-level storage functions.
How it Works

Paragon Software also offers maintenance and support as well as development and consulting services for this SDK.
The UFSD SDK is available for licensing: https://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/ufsd/ufsd-uefi.html
