Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac Key Features
Complete hard disk management
Covers all aspects of a Mac computer life cycle, beginning from drive partitioning and regular backup to system migration, disaster recovery and secure utilization of an outdated storage. You need two or more competitive utilities to have a similar set of functions.
Regular data protection
Sector-level data processing through the Paragon's Snapshot enables to do live imaging of the entire Mac including OS, applications with great perfomance. Backup to VMDK opens up an easy migration to a virtual environment of VMware Fusion. Fast restore at a granular level allows to restore only needed files through the Finder by mounting backup image.
Bootable recovery media
Create a bootable USB-flash stick or external storage to restore OS X system volumes or accomplish drive partitioning when OS X fails to start up or SIP doesn’t allow to perform the operations.
Boot Camp management
Anything you may need to effectively manage your Boot Camp Windows: backup, restore, repartitioning as well as boot correction capabilities.
10 military and governmental data wiping standards as well as support of the “SSD Trim” function to safely erase all on-disk data or only remnants of deleted files on traditional rotating platter disks or solid state drives.
New Backup & Recovery
Enables to significantly reduce backup and recovery times while improving general performance.
Enables to take consistent snapshots of both inactive and in-use partitions, e.g. those that host Mac OS X, providing a coherent state of all open files involved in the process and taking into account that applications may still keep writing to disks.
Help to secure your software environment, including OS, applications and data. Full copies of disks and partitions enable to recover your system to a working state within several minutes.
Backup & Restore
Supports Core Storage backup and restore (including FileVault2 and FusionDrive)
Any Windows or Mac OS X resided on your disks will be detected automatically. Just make your choice and let the program do the rest.
Minimizes backup storage footprint for several time stamps of the same data.
Paragon Virtual Hard Drive does away with all limitations of a standard virtual drive format, such as a poor compression ratio, lack of integrity control and encryption capabilities.
pVHD images can be saved to a local volume, external storage (USB, FireWire, Thunderbolt) or a network share.
Fast bare-metal recovery
OS X system volumes can be restored from a special bootable USB-flash stick or external disk in one action without the need of re-installing the operating system.
You can mount an existing backup image in the read-only mode, thus getting access to its contents through the Finder. This option can help to quickly retrieve individual files without accomplishing a full restore operation.
Our program supports GPT and MBR disks formatted to any of OS X, Windows, and Linux file systems.
Partitioning in El Capitan
In the latest OS X layout of the system disk is not allowed to modify by any third-party application until System Integrity Protection or SIP is deactivated, which is not an option for many users. Our program detects an active SIP and prompts to create and use a special bootable USB-flash stick or external disk to do drive partitioning.
Redistribute free space
Increases free space on one partition by utilizing the unused space on the adjacent partition.
Enables to move the left or right border of the selected partition, thus not only resizing, but moving it on the disk.
Helps to find and recover any lost or accidentally deleted partition.
Convert partition table
Helps to do non-destructive conversion between GPT (GUID Partition Table), MBR (Master Boot Record) or a hybrid GPT+MBR partition tables.
Change partition properties
Mount or unmount a partition, set it active or inactive, change its identifier (ID), etc.
Rich file system support
Create, format, resize, change properties of HFS+, NTFS, ExtFS, FAT and Microsoft exFAT partitions.
Boot Camp Management
Resize Boot Camp
Redistributes free space between Mac OS X and Windows OS volumes in Boot Camp with minimal effort.
Easy Windows OS migration
Through restore of a Boot Camp image on a different Mac computer.
Fix Windows boot issues
If a Windows OS doesn’t boot after replacing a failed hardware device or you’ve got any other boot issue resulted from a human or program error, or a boot virus activity, first try our boot repair tools before taking more radical actions.
