Paragon Releases Backup & Recovery 14 Home
The virtual hard drive format is optimized for storing backups of virtual and physical machines and is more efficient in handling incremental chains.Data backup, disaster recovery and data migration solutions specialist Paragon Software Group (PSG) announced the release of Backup & Recovery 14 Home, a backup and recovery tool for Windows PC users running Windows 8.1, Windows 2000 or something in between. The latest edition comes with a host of enhanced features, including complete Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (uEFI) support, backup and recovery of BitLocker encrypted partitions for protecting PC users’ data from loss and unauthorized access, and the Paragon Virtual Hard Drive (pVHD) format for faster and more reliable backup. A 64-bit Windows OS system configured to the uEFI boot mode can be adjusted to start up on another hard disk during the copy or restore process. Furthermore, this is accomplished directly under Windows. The Linux-based recovery environment also supports systems configured to the uEFI boot mode. The virtual hard drive format is optimized for storing backups of virtual and physical machines and is more efficient in handling incremental chains, data de-duplication and synchronization.
The company said pVHD allows backups to be up to four times smaller than the original objects and offers easy to use support for any virtual containers.
