    I use : Paragon Backup & Recovery™, version 10.0.15.12802 (19.01.11 ) (Advanced) Free
    Type of motherboard : Asus P8H67-V B3
    Disk : Western Digital 1TB SATA6 64MB 7200

    When i boot from a recovery media on USB stick, it seems that B&R doesn't recogize my hard disks. I can only select the usb stick, nothing else :(

    any suggestions ?

    My Suggestion:
    The recovery environment in the free edition is Linux-based and probably your board is not supported by its driver complement. If you purchase the paid version the WinPE recovery environment is more likely to support it but if it doesn't, it provides the option to load additional device drivers.

    Try the BartPE plugin.

    @ j_l
    can you give me some info who to use the BartPE plugin with Paragon B&R ?
    (or a link to a website)

    i've noticed that since i've tried the restore function, my PC doesn't go into hibernate-mode. can B&R be really the cause ?

    I really don't know but I wouldn't think it should cause it since it never did a restore. Anything it may have set in the machine's hardware should have been reset when Windows booted up.

    Have a look in the Windows Event Viewer to see if there are any clues and run through any Control Panel or BIOS settings that may pertain to hibernation.

    Hi guys,
    somewhere on my second hard disk I had an disk image made by EASEUS ToDo Backup. With the Win_PE rescue disk of Easeus I've restored disk C: (windows OS) and disk D: (my programs)...
    And now ... tada ... everything works fine...:D
    So Paragon was indeed the cause for the not-go-into-hibernate-mode :mad:

    thanks anyway for your efforts
