Paragon Hard Disk Manager Suite 17 (Paragon HDM Suite) is an all-in-one suite to completely protect, maintain and manage your PC!
Paragon Hard Disk Manager Suite 17 provides you with all of the tools you need to manage today’s hard drives, including partitioning solutions, backup and restore, optimization and defragmentation, hard drive disposal, boot management, and system recovery.
This suite allows you to make the fast migration to new HDDs, SSDs, and virtual machines. Efficient disk maintenance and optimization are available too.
Paragon Hard Disk Manager Suite 17 also allows you to manage multiple operating systems (up to 16) on a hard drive. Protect your entire PC, including the operating system, applications, your settings, and all data files with easy-to-use backup tools.
Paragon Hard Disk Manager Suite 17 handles your backup tasks automatically – from backing up the entire system, individual partitions or just selected files. Incremental and differential backup technologies make continuous system backups exceptionally efficient with the Paragon Hard Disk Manager Suite 17. A one-time full backup of the entire computer followed by regular incremental backups keeps the latest status of your PC safe at all times. The new backup containers in pVHD format speed up backups to networks (like a NAS).
