Paragon Backup & Recovery Free

Backup & Recovery Free is a set of tools for files, OS and hard drive partitions backup. The program is free and is distributed as a component together with Paragon Hard Disk Manager.

With the help of the Backup & Recovery tools user can create emergency bootable WinPE images, move operating systems, manage file storage on local servers and backup important information on schedule. This helps to avoid data loss because of sudden hardware failures or amortization, system files deletion by mistake, incorrect Windows components update or viruses.

Backup & Recovery Free allows to create backup chains and schemes offering flexible adjustment with the help of the incremental and differential backup options. So, in the first case only the changes that happened since the last backup (incremental or differential) are copied into the image. In the case of the differential backup all the “novelties” since the last full backup are saved again and again. Thus, user can get a really secure system in the situation of limited disk space or while working with huge data volumes and HDD partitions by combining and interchanging the mentioned approaches.

The program’s interface is quite original and resembles other similar backup tools. The left part of the main window serves as a menu that shows the list of available tools. The main part contains tabs and allows to switch between the backup history, active tasks and logical structure of the hard drive. Backup creation is accompanied by the wizard’s tips which help the user to navigate through many available settings of Backup & Recovery.

The program has its own file format. Backup content preview is made with the help of the in-built manager.
