While I'm afraid I will get accused of a "rant" again.....

Doesn't Windows 7 already provide this?

Per the Windows 7 website.....

I know for a fact that Vista Ultimate provides this functionality as well. I think that Vista Home Premium does too, but I don't have that - so I may be wrong.

This may be a good program, but I could create a program that does little more then run Windows built in system backup and accomplish what this program claims to do.

Nevermind the drive clone programs that are readily available from the hard-drive manufacturers.

This is another prime example of a program that I wouldn't install, but feel very justified to give a negative review to.

Of course I will get blasted (yet again), but I have no horse in any of these races. I just post what I see - know - or find out after looking into things a layer deep.

I would consider this program *if* they were able to explain why their program is better than the built in functionality of Windows 7.
Until I see a reasonable explaination of the differences between the Paragon program, and built in Windows backup features? I have to ask what the point is.

That said..... I have used Paragon programs in the past without any problems that I can remember. I don't want to put down a company that puts out a good product, but I just cannot see buying this product due to Windows 7 support. Especially when most versions of Windows 7 seem to have this built in to begin with.

Feel free to tell me where I'm wrong here, but don't accuse me of trashing this program. That's not what I'm doing.

I just think it's a bit redundant.

Fair enough?
