Data safety is a complex problem that requires you take care of many things. Paragon Hard Disk Manager (HDM) consolidates 25 years of hands-on expertise in system software to keep your data healthy and safe.
► Organize your disks, ensure capacity and performance of storage media
► Transfer systems on the fly, use physical and virtual appliances at will
► Use professional-grade backup to secure systems, applications and data
► Always stay up and running with boot fix and fail-safe system recovery
We recommend using protected mode, which is enabled by default. In this mode, everything you want to do is first placed in a queue, with changes applied only after user verification. You don’t have to wait for an operation to finish before you can move on, since some operations can take time to complete. More importantly, you can go back one step at a time in case of problems, or to undo any changes already made.
Paragon Recovery Media Builder
Hard Disk Manager also comes with full-fledged Paragon Recovery Media Builder to help correct most boot problems that might occur from logical errors, hardware malfunctions, or failures. Additionally, if your system becomes corrupted or compromised — including problems caused by malware or ransomware — you’ll be able to quickly restore full operability of your system and applications with minimal data loss.
Resize partitions on the fly
Internal drive running low on available disk space? This dilemma often occurs when you have multiple partitions to accommodate different systems and data types. With Hard Disk Manager, you can resize partitions on the fly to maximize available storage capacity.
Clean up media
When disposing of an old computer, it’s a good idea to first wipe personal data. Hard Disk Manager makes this task a snap by irreversibly destroying data stored on a device.
Alternatively, you can opt only to clean unused space (in which case deleted files can still be restored), while keeping useful data intact. You may be surprised to learn how much data leakage occurs from the negligence of this simple rule.
Live transfer your systems and data
Suppose you want to change your old mechanical hard disk drive (HDD) to a fast new solid-state storage device (SSD). With Hard Disk Manager, you simply choose where you want Windows to be, and there it is, ready to run. You can even continue working on your system while Windows is being relocated! No manual operations or reboots necessary — just switch over when ready.
