Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Backup and Recovery Compact is a toned down version of the professional edition, and only includes three modules that allows you to carry out backup, recovery and transfer tasks. The backup tool is accompanied by a wizard that guides you through the whole process. You can backup files, folders or the entire hard drive on a virtual disk. The same goes for the recovery tool that allows you to restore your data in just a few clicks. You can also modify, create or delete your backup capsules using the capsule manager.
The offer page mentions that this special edition contains partitioning tools that will allow you to create, format, delete partitions, assign or remove drive letter, set partition active or inactive, but in our test run we found these tools missing.
