Creating Backup Images

  • Creation of backup images is accomplished with the Simple Backup Wizard.

    To launch the Simple Backup Wizard, click the Backup and Rescue button of the Express Launcher and select Simple Backup. After the mentioned action the Welcome page of the wizard will be displayed.

    In Paragon Drive Backup the company offers a number of more sophisticated solutions of data and system backup. To know more on the subject, please follow the link on the first page of the wizard.

    The Simple Backup Wizard allows the user to configure the settings and then start the operation in accordance with the entered parameters. Here the user sets the parameters of the backup operation defining:

    1. The object to back up. The user can backup either an entire disk or separate partitions of the disk (primary, extended or logical). In case of backing up an entire disk, the user has the possibility to include into the image such disk elements as the Master Boot Record (MBR) and the first track of the hard disk. This can be very helpful for serious disk recovery procedures.

    2. Backup destination. The Simple Backup Wizard allows saving backup archives to local or network drives. The user needs to select a destination, taking the estimated archive size and available space on the backup destination into account. The program automatically offers an easy to understand name containing the date and the time of the archive creation, which can anyway be modified.

    The program automatically calculates size of the future archive and informs the user about space available on the selected destination.

    Backup to a Network Drive function is not available for the Personal version of the program. To know more on the subject, please consult the Partition Manager Editions chapter.

    After the backup operation is completed the user receives an image of the selected disk (or the selected partition). This image is placed into the specified destination (a local or network disk), its features defined by the wizard.

    The operation will be performed immediately after confirmation. No virtual mode is available.

    Available operation scenarios:
    1. Backup to a Local Partition
    2. Backup to a Network Drive
