Paragon Free Image Backup for Windows 8
Background of the Product
Quote:Announcement of the newest Windows OS is always a big event for anyone who has anything to do with IT. For professionals and technology enthusiasts, it's a time of extensive compatibility testing. But testing third-party applications on a brand-new operating system is obviously a risk for data loss or even system corruption. Completely re-installing the Windows OS each time something goes wrong during the process is a waste of time and effort, out of the question. The only practical option is to have a reliable disaster recovery solution at hand, 100% compatible with the newest OS. That's the challenge for companies targeted at solving system and data protection problems - to develop an apt tool and run a full range of tests to prove reliability before introducing it to the public, and to do it in a minimal amount of time.
Besides general compatibility issues, Microsoft has introduced a shiny new Resilient File System, or ReFS, in Windows 8 Server Beta. Being the successor of NTFS, ReFS has a new storage engine that promises to protect against storage failures, resist data corruptions, support ultra-large file and volume size, and grant much higher performance. It looks like Microsoft intends to make ReFS the primary file system for storing data, so it's no surprise that everybody displays a keen interest in trying this innovative file system.
About the Software
Quote:Paragon Image Backup for Windows 8 is a disk-imaging tool for Windows 8 and Server 2012. It employs Microsoft VSS and Paragon’s patent-pending technologies for consistent point-in-time copies of the whole disk system or separate volumes. For recovery purposes it includes a powerful Linux/DOS environment. But its power is its support of the innovative ReFS.
Key Product Benefits
Quote:
  • Support of the latest Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012
  • Support of the brand-new ReFS (Resilient File System) for backup, restore, and browsing under Windows and Linux
  • Live Windows backup. Create an image-based copy of the whole disk system, or separate volumes and place it locally, to CD/DVD/BD, or on the net. The use of the disk-imaging mechanism and Microsoft VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) tackles the problem of backing up running applications and system locked files
  • Flexible recovery. Restore the whole backup image, or only particular files under Windows or from the Linux/DOS recovery environment
  • Additional maintenance functions. The Linux/DOS recovery environment includes basic functions for initializing, partitioning and formatting hard disks
