  • Comments
  1. The Good
    * Straightforward and easy to use.
    o All major features have a step-by-step wizard that guides users, making it very easy for even novices to use.
    * Allows users to copy whole hard drives to other hard drives.
    o The source hard drive and destination hard drive need not be the same size.
    o The destination hard drive can be used on a computer with different hardware, thanks to the P2P Adjust OS feature.
    o Users opt to do a “sector-by-sector” copy of the whole source hard drive, or do a “sector-by-sector” copy of just the partitions on the source hard drive.
    o Partitions on the source hard drive can be resized in proportion to the destination hard drive’s size.
    o Can remove unallocated space between partitions on the source hard drive while copying.
    o Filters can be used to exclude the copy of specific files and/or file types.
    o Has an incremental copy feature that only copies changes made since last copy.
    o Users have the ability to schedule hard drive copies to occur automatically.
    * Allows users to copy individual partitions to unallocated space on current hard drive or different hard drive.
    o Partitions can be resized while copying.
    o Filters can be used to exclude the copy of specific files and/or file types.
    o Users have the ability to schedule partition copies to occur automatically.
    * Can virtualize whole hard drives or individual partitions and create virtual machines out of them.
    o Supports VMware, Microsoft Virtual PC, and VirtualBox virtual machine formats.
    * Has basic partition management (add, delete, resize, format, undelete, etc.), hard drive management (error checking, fix MBR, etc.) and basic image-backup/restoration capabilities.
    o Partition management supports FAT32, NTFS, EXT2/3/4, Swap2, and Apple HFS file systems.
    o Image-backup features allow users to control compression level and has the ability to automatically split backup archives based on size.
    * Supports Microsoft VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) while giving users the option to use Paragon Hot Processing instead.
    * Supports internal and external hard drives.
    * Supports MBR and GPT hard drives.
    * “Virtual mode” (in Advanced Launcher only) allows users to queue-up multiple actions and have them conducted in batch (i.e. set multiple partitions to be copied one after another).
    * Allows users to create bootable/recovery CD/DVD/Blu-ray discs or USB/flash drives.
    o Supports Linux-based bootable media.

    The Bad
    * The Paragon Drive Copy 10 Personal “Special Edition” does not come with WinPE bootable media. Since there is no WinPE bootable media, the P2P Adjust OS feature (the feature that allows users to migrate data from one computer to another by adjusting the copied data to work on the new hardware) is effectively useless since it only works off WinPE bootable media.
    * When creating a virtual copy of a whole hard drive, doesn’t disable the use of unsupported virtual machine formats (i.e. if the hard drive size is too large for a Microsoft Virtual PC virtual machine, doesn’t disable that option). It does disable when creating a virtual copy of individual partitions, though.
    * When running off the Linux-based bootable media, the image-backup feature allows users to password protect backup archives; when run normally from within Windows, the image-backup feature does not have this password protection feature.
    * No options to do incremental copy or “sector-by-sector” copy when copying partitions. (?)
    * Virtualization and image-backup features can only be used via Express Launcher – Advanced Launcher doesn’t provide access to them.
    * Has an annoying delay when using Express Launcher between when a user cancels or closes a wizard and the Express Launcher pops back up.

  3. Just to clarify my comment about the P2P Adjust OS feature: Using the P2P Adjust OS only works for “offline systems”, hence the inability to use it from within Windows and needing to using it while booting from WinPE bootable media. If you are single-booting (i.e. only have one installation of Windows) there is no way to use this feature from within Windows and without WinPE bootable media you obviously cannot use it at all. P2P Adjust OS may, however, work for dual-booting systems without a WinPE bootable media because the other OS may be considered “offline” by this program when you are booted into the first OS. I cannot verify this dual-booting issue because I am not dual-booting with two Windows installations on my computer.
