Review: Paragon Partition Manager 10 Professional

IT professionals who support desktop computers will appreciate the functionality in Paragon Partition Manager Professional.

Main screen

When first started, Paragon Partition Manager Professional allows the easy launching of various wizards.

Full application

By choosing "Full Scale Launcher" from the main menu, you can enter the full application. This is a more advanced screen with many more options and details available.

Backup wizard

The backup wizard allows you to choose exactly what you want to copy, with varying degrees of granularity.

Options

There are a huge number of settings throughout the application to make it work exactly the way you want it to; this is one example of these options, from the backup wizard.

Virtual mode

Paragon Partition Manager 10 Professional can use a "virtual mode" where operations are not actually performed immediately. This is the default, and it is a great way to catch mistakes before they are made.

Volume Shadow Copy

The application can also use Windows' Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) to take "snapshots" of data. This is a critical feature if you have certain applications running in the background while operations are being performed.

User interface

This is another example of the UI, this time for a partition resize operation. As you can see, it provides you with all of the information you need to make the right decision, while being clear and easy to understand at the same time.
