Paragon Backup & Recovery Comments

I migrated to Macrium Reflect because I can backup linux EXT4 files.

Negative Comment by n4af
about Paragon Backup & Recovery and Macrium Reflect Jun 2011

I have migrated to Paragon from TI then Macrium Reflect because I can backup linux EXT4 files.
MR and TI will do it but only sector-by-sector.

German Paragon B&R Free V.9 cannot backup Win 7 partitions

Comment by em4020
about Paragon Backup & Recovery Jun 2011

The German Version 9 from cannot backup Windows 7 partitions, only the English Version 10 from can do Windows 7 backups.
But all editions of Windows 7 itself can backup Windows 7 partitions, see (1) and (2)
You will need to register for a serial number before starting with installation, but it's well worth the minimal effort.
Without a product key and serial number the installation process will be interrupted without information about this fact at the beginning of the installation.
