    Hi Reghakr,

    Odd no one has taken you up on this.

    It is great software.

    You need to run the setup today - before the end of the giveaway.

    Setup deposits the actual installer on the root of the C drive by default.

    You need to run that to install it.

    Keep a copy of the installer safe and you can reinstall whenever you like .

    3rd party apps like this can do a lot more than Disk Management or Diskpart.

    Convert Dynamic to Basic without data loss - undelete partitions - merge partitions - move/resize , convert primary to logical - resize extended partition - supports FAT 16, FAT32 NTFS, ReiserFS, Linux ext2 . ext 3, Apple - handy for mutibooters. Cloning - etc. etc.

    Thanks for the site link reghakr! [​IMG]

    It has a game version of the site too! Just what I need when I'm tired of catchup readings on Microsoft plethora of apps releases.

    Just about eveyone is giving away software now... or at least extended trial versions. Microsoft (windows 7) has made almost all 3rd party software unnecessary.

    LOL.

    They are doing giveaways to raise their profile - there will be a big sales push of new apps . to coincide ( roughly ) with the uptake of 7 by the general public. There will also be a push by the oem's to sell new lappy's.

    Everyone wants to take advantage of the resultant publicity . It is called marketing.

    I totally disagree - 3rd party software is even more desirable.

    MS includes a lot of basic tools - which is great - they are not meant to compete with 3rd party apps.

    Paint is a good app. - does it replace Photoshop?

    Similarly, Windows Backup is better than nothing - it's great MS include it. If anything - it will increase the awareness of the need for backup software among the public. It will drive sales of more complete, flexible and reliable solutions.

    BTW - This Paragon PM9.5PRO app giveaway is excellent - no limitatations.

    Paragon Drive Backup 10 will be on sale soon - it's awesome - it builds on 7 Disk Management vhd capabilities - as well as unbeatable imaging and restore options - partitioning, too. See screenshot:

    Paragon products some great software and can't believe the negative comments on this post.

    Windows Utilities do not come anywhere clear to the capabilities of the is program.

    As I stated before, I use the OS, but no Microsoft apps, Beside WMP a little, but opt for freeware and open source software, which is constantly being updated with more fetures.

    Hi reghakr,

    Well, I suppose some people have simple needs and are happy with what software is already in the o/s.

    Not everyone needs/wants to do enthusiast type things.

    Like you , I use mostly 3rd party apps. It's great when we get giveaways of top quality programs like this one.:D

    I never had anything bad to say about Paragon but I think it's a VERY BAD idea
    to partition a hard drive.

    1. First, it's setting up an unstable system by adding one more critical thing
    that can go bad and cause data loss either by accidentally deleting files or
    should a bad sector occur where critical files are located... the WHOLE
    partition and data on it is lost. A partition doubles your chances of critical
    data loss and system failure.

    2. A second partition gives people a false sense that their data is backed up..
    however when the hard drive fails... and ALL hard drives eventually fail, the
    backup is lost too.

    3. Every partition doubles your wasted disk space. Since you can't fill a
    partition to the max you have to have free space left over on every partition .

    4. Huge hard drives are less than $50 ...that's probably about the same as it
    cost to pay for partition software. Partition software won't protect your data.
    An extra hard drive will.

    5. It's easy to wipe out important data and even kill your host OS should you
    create partitions larger than your free disk space. More people have screwed
    up their system with partition programs than have successfully used them.
    (Probably an exaggeration but you get the idea.)

    6. If you MUST partition a drive you can do it with Diskpart - which is free.

    7. Finally, if you don't agree with my opinion ....well, you are just wrong.. haha

    Hi reghakr - do you think that may get more views as a separate thread?

    It is a completely different app. after all.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    If you aren't sure what you are doing then you're asking for trouble. I don't get how having 2 partitions doubles anything except the number of partitions?

    If anyone thinks that when their hard drive fails that magically their 2nd partition will be immune then more fool them. I honestly don't think that's the case at all.

    You maybe lose a few hundred MBs, hardly a good reason not to partition.

    Plenty of good free partitioning software like EASEUS, no need to spend a penny.

    I have used probably 10 different partition managers over the years and not one of them allows you to create a partition larger than is physically possible. Maybe some command line partitioners but no GUI ones at least that I've used.

    Wow, you really believe that? There isn't any one thing that I can think of in W7 that can't be done better with 3rd party software, and plenty of things I do regularly which just simply can't be done in W7. Rar files, newsreader, torrent client, most types of video editing/conversion, a lot of video/audio formats unsupported, ftp client, GFX card overclocking etc etc etc.

    I not only believe it.. but I preach it to the poor lost souls in need of salvation.

    "Better" wasn't the question... Necessity was the question. Better usually just
    means easier.



    You only need winRar if you download from some sources and the rest of the stuff
    is unique software for your particular needs... like a dentist may need
    software to track patients accounts, keep a count of how many teeth you have
    etc. You like to edit videos etc... I just look at them on Youtube... few
    people even know what a torrent program is. Google has the best rss reader I
    have used.. so I don't need to install one. Windows Explorer works as an ftp
    program... simply drag and drop files to your ftp site like you are moving them
    from one folder to another on your hard drive.


    ..... so we are all the way back to ... well no necessary 3rd party software....
    Windows Security Essentials gobbled the last pacman power pellet from the AV
    industry... Game is over, all have been assimilate.... there may be a few
    crumbs left that Microsoft could include.... like"


    1. A feature in email to bounce back spam so your address would be removed by
    the spammer... would be MUCH easier than trying to track spammers and sort your
    junk mail for you.


    2. A Backup that would make a bootable backup.

    3. A registry optimizer/defragger -- actually regedit used to have a /fix and
    some kind of rebuild feature... I don't know where that went ? I think when you
    back it up it sorts and optimizes. Then you replace your original with your
    backup to have an optimized registry.


    4. Improve the driver upgrade option to actually LOOK for new drivers rather
    than just say this one is sorta working... didn't find anything newer. How
    lame is that?


    5. Option to remove/disable all your autorun options and bho's .. and turn off
    ALL scheduled tasks at once. Yeah you can do all that manually... but there
    should be a popup for novice users asking them "Do you want your computer to run
    fast and stable?" When they say yes.. it knocks out the crud.


    Microsoft will never support torrents because they are mostly use for piracy and
    the spread of viruses and trojans... you have to get those on your own.
