What is Paragon Backup & Recovery?

Probably the only fully featured free system backup for Windows. The interface is simple, it supports all kinds of backups, scheduling and can boot from a flash drive to restore your system.
The free version is called "Community Edition". It's a bit hard to find on their website, though. https://www.paragon-software.com/us/free/br-free/
Unable to create a valid schedule. The app comes up with choices regarding frequency and retention that have nothing to do with what I selected. Their forum is full of comments like this. Absolutely no response from their tech support. Requested and received my money back. Miserable software. Move along; nothing to see here.
The best under the free solutions. Has incremental backup and and selective restore of folders, great!
[Edited by juris, December 28] EDIT: no longer backs up, just takes forever and never finishes, looking for another solution...
User Friendly but no scheduling or automatic cleanup of backups
The "Backup & Recovery 16 Free" version don't run anymore under Windows 7
Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 2011 (german) has 2 important disadvantages:
Macrium Reflect Free is able to do scheduled backups on each 2nd Monday of a month, but it also cannot cleanup old backups automatically.
If you need a backup application, which has none of the 2 mentioned disadvantages, you must buy a commercial backup solution, e.g. Acronis True Image Home Edition.
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.
For the straight windows user, my recommend would go to Macrium Reflect. Just keep in mind that Paragon Free gives you differential support, which you will need to pay for w/ Macrium or TI...
