Unfortunately, Paragon has a "raw" version of Backup & Recovery.

Paragon Backup & Recovery is full of bugs. And it seems that the developer is not in a hurry to eliminate them. More often than others, there is a problem when trying to restore a file in Windows 10. During the recovery process, the user receives an error message, and the

Pros:

  • The program is free.

CONS:

  • Problems when trying to recover a file in Windows 10
  • The support service was powerless.

The functionality and technical performance of backup and recovery are quite decent and, probably, everything that most users need. And backing up to a virtual hard disk is an added bonus.

The uniqueness of the free version of Paragon Backup & Recovery is that it performs backups using virtual hard disks as a container format (own pVHDs from Paragon, VMware or VHD / VHDX, supported by most Windows versions).

Pros:

  • Free for non-commercial users
  • Backup to virtual hard disks
  • Convenient, well-organized interface.

CONS:

  • In this free version, only preliminary scheduling and storage settings are available to the user.

In general, a successful backup program from Paragon.

A few words about the free version of Backup & Recovery, recently released by Paragon. In general, the free version can be described as successful. The program is relatively easy to use and includes three predefined backup options.

Pros:

  • The program is relatively easy to use
  • Several different image formats.

CONS:

  • Files added to winpe are large
  • For some reason, the possibility that the main competitor does not have to remove files / folders from the backup image has been removed.

Tip: if you are looking for a good backup program, stay clear of Paragon.

Paragon Backup & Recovery creates backup copies in a virtual file on the hard disk. Not good if your hard drive fails. The program will of course create backup copies of Windows. In the case of a Windows crash, consider yourself out of luck.

Pros:

  • I found nothing
  • Is free?! But what good is this if the program does not work.

CONS:

  • Doubtful effectiveness.

In general, Paragon successfully copes with the execution of tasks and meets user expectations.

Probably the main thing that upsets in the free version of this program is that with such a large number of functions that the user can see, he cannot use them. Personally, it gives me a feeling of limited space.

Pros:

  • The program is quite easy to use
  • Wizards provide step by step instructions.

CONS:

  • Limited features of the free version compared to the paid one.

Pros:

  • Reliable protection of vital information through high-quality backup and restore data
  • Availability of the free version within 30 days
  • Rapid customer support response

All of the extra backup features give users a high degree of control over backup operations.

Paragon arrogantly claims that their Paragon Backup and Recovery program is "the most powerful free backup solution ever!" Is it really? I will try to briefly share my observations. I was pleased to learn that, firstly, the program is really free and, secondly, to receive

Pros:

  • Convenient disk management tools
  • A wide range of backup and restore functions
  • Simple and convenient interface.

CONS:

  • Working with the program requires some experience or knowledge of backup issues
  • Slow speed backup files and folders
  • There is no possibility to create online backup copies
  • No cloud backup option.
