Paragon Partition Manager 15 Home Benefits
Partitioning – quick and without data loss
Do you need more space for the system partition, or would you like to separate the operating system and data, install another operating system on the computer, restructure the hard disk or set up a new computer? The high-performance partitioning engine will help you divide your hard disk into well-arranged partitions in no time and makes sure the memory storage space available on the hard disk is used ideally.
Enhanced data security and flexibility
Dividing a hard disk into at least two partitions provides major advantages when it comes to data security. If you keep your operating system, applications and data on different partitions, you will be on the safe side if ever becomes necessary to reinstall Windows or run a backup or image: your data will stay protected in a separate partition. And division into smaller drives increases the speed of accessing the drives’ contents.
Convenient partitioning functions - easy to use
The intuitive program assistants help you manage the partitions on your hard drive quickly and efficiently. For instance, if you want to establish a new NTFS partition, the program wizard will create one with the best possible utilization of the available resources (automatic alignment). You can expand, reduce, relocate or delete partitions just as easily, or restore partitions you may have accidentally deleted.
Increase hard disk and system performance
The powerful partitioning tools ensure an ideal hard disk structure. The operating system can process data more efficiently if the physical hard disk is divided into a number of logical hard drives, each of which has its own letter and volume name. The automatic partitioning alignment* ensures that the partitions are already aligned correctly during the partitioning process, thus optimizing the hard disk’s performance. Ideally configured partitions speed up all file system operations! * 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.
Data security plus thanks to proven technologies
With Paragon’s Smart-Partition™ technology, you can conduct your partitioning operations safely. 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.
Paragon Recovery Medium
The Recovery Media Builder 3.0 makes it extremely easy and flexible to create your own personal recovery environment. If your operating system won’t boot up anymore, you can fire up your PC with the bootable Paragon recovery environment and load in an existing backup, secure important data or rectify booting errors. With the Home edition, you create the recovery medium based on Linux/DOS; the Professional edition allows to prepare either Linux/DOS or WinPE-based bootable recovery media.
Paragon Partition Manager 15 Home Key Features
Partitioning & Optimization
Create partition, format partition, assign drive letter
The Create Partition Wizard creates a new partition in the most appropriate place of your hard disk, formats it to NTFS and then makes it available in the system by assigning a drive letter.
Move, resize, delete partitions
The move/resize partition function allows you to resize or change location of any partition without destroying its data. The delete partition wizard helps you accomplish the deletion of a partition.
Separate different types of data by splitting one partition into two different partitions of the same type and file system.
Consolidate disk space from two adjacent partitions (NTFS, FAT16/FAT32) into a single, larger partition.
Redistribute Free Space
Increase free space on one partition by utilizing the unallocated on-disk space and the unused space of other partitions.
The Undelete Partition Wizard helps to find and recover any accidentally deleted partition.
Automatic partition alignment
Partition Alignment is the process of adjusting location of partitions on a hard drive according to its internal geometry. It may considerably increase performance on SSD, AFD and non-512B sector size disks.
Convert file system
Convert file system enables to safely change a file system type of an existing partition.
Easily manage several operating systems on one computer (32-bit version only). The Boot Manager allows choosing what OS to boot during the computer startup.
Fix most of the system boot problems that result from human or program error, or a boot virus activity.
Backup and Recovery
Embedded Recovery Media Builder 3.0
Create a bootable, Linux/DOS based recovery medium on an external device. An advanced mode enables to set up pre-configured network settings and to implement additional drivers during recovery media creation.
Backup a partition or a hard drive to safeguard data before executing complex operations.
Backup to VD Wizard (.pVHD)
Backup separate partitions or entire hard disks to a pVHD (Paragon Virtual Hard Drive) format – a special VHD, optimized for storing backups of virtual and physical machines. pVHD allows obtaining backups that are up to four times smaller than original backup objects!
Restore the entire system, separate partitions, or complete hard disks from a previously created backup.
