If you need a solid all-in-one package, crammed with business-oriented extras, then it’s definitely worth a try.

  • GhacksThe application walks users through the steps of creating backups with a wizard. It supports creating backups of the system partition, select disks or partitions, file types, or files and folders. Backups can be stored on external devices, local volumes, network shares, or burned to optical media. The backup tool supports a handful of additional features; you need to enable advanced settings for that, and may change the compression level, backup file size limits, and password protection then.

What is Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Windows?

Data safety and disk health for tech-savvy users

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.

Protected mode

Paragon Software recommend using protected mode (enabled by default). This way all user actions are first placed in a queue and applied only after user verification. No need to wait for an ongoing operation to finish before moving on. Go back one step at a time or undo any changes already made if needed.

Paragon Recovery Media Builder

Hard Disk Manager comes with full-fledged Paragon Recovery Media Builder to correct boot problems inflicted by logical errors, hardware malfunctions, or failures. If the system becomes corrupted or compromised — malware or ransomware reasons included — you can quickly restore full system and applications operability 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

Wipe personal data before disposing a hard disk. Alternatively, clean unused space only with possibility to restore deleted file. You know better than neglecting this simple rule.

Live transfer your systems and data

Want to change an old HDD to a new SSD? With Hard Disk Manager, you simply choose where you want your Windows and run the migration. Continue working on your system while Windows is being relocated. No manual operations or reboots necessary — just switch over when it’s ready.

Frequently Asked Questions

I can’t find free HDM-based products (Partition Manager / Backup & Recovery / Rescue Kit Free) and some commercial editions on your website. Are they discontinued?

Yes, but Paragon Software offer a better way – all functions of the mentioned free product versions are now included into the new Hard Disk Manager and available completely for free after a quick activation over the Internet. Advanced features, previously distributed among several products, are now all combined in HDM, and can be purchased and activated directly in the program (see HDM Free vs. HDM Premium comparison). So, you don’t need to have several different products installed in your computer any more, but only one – Hard Disk Manager 16.

Can I use your product on the latest Windows 10 Creators Update?

Of course! Hard Disk Manager is fully compatible with the latest operating system.

Can I use cloud storage as backup destination?

Absolutely, most cloud storage providers support WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning), a communication protocol based on HTTP 1.1 that provides a framework for users to create, modify, and move files to a remote server. All you need is to mount cloud storage as a network volume in the system via WebDAV and configure Hard Disk Manager to use it. For more information, please consult our best practice called “Backup to Cloud with Backup & Recovery 16.”

What RAID configuration does your product support?

Hard Disk Manager supports all types of software and hardware RAID configuration with only one restriction: Your RAID should already be set up and recognized by your OS as a single disk.

My SATA/RAID controller is not recognized by the WinPE recovery media.

You should have already injected drivers for a controller during creation of the recovery media, which is a recommended one-time procedure. Alternatively, you can inject the drivers each time after booting from the recovery media through the corresponding dialog.

Does your product support Microsoft Dynamic Disks?

Full support of this proprietary technology is not yet available from any third-party vendor, as Microsoft has yet to make available the proper documentation. Hard Disks Manager provides limited support for MBR dynamic disks. GPT dynamic disks are NOT supported.

Can I change the layout of BitLocker-encrypted volumes?

No, Hard Disk Manager doesn’t allow changing the layout for this volume type. However, you can back up, restore, copy, and perform additional actions with unlocked BDE volumes. An unlocked BDE volume is a volume encrypted with BitLocker, which is open for access (password or recovery key is provided).

Windows asks for activation after copying to another storage device.

Microsoft requires all changes in hardware devices to be tracked by the Windows operating system. As such, Hard Disk Manager is unable to circumvent this requirement.

Can I activate and use the free version of the product on several computers?

Nope. The free version allows activation of the product on one computer at a time only.

How many times can I re-activate my license?

You can re-activate it up to 5 times. If you need to re-activate your license more than 5 times, please contact Paragon Software Support or file a support ticket and Paragon Software will help you to release the counter of licenses.
