    This is my first time using Paragon's software, so I'm likely overlooking something. Hopefully someone can help.

    I'm using Hard Disk Manager 11 Suite and trying to image my Macbook's SSD. I'm running OS X/Win 7 via bootcamp and opted for a sector level 1:1 image of both partitions. Everything seemed to be running smoothly until Paragon asked me to reboot for low-level access to the C: Drive.

    "Initialize and reopen archive DB" Finished
    "Backup Partition" Finished

    And then I got hit with "Some Error Occured: Can't open/create file"
    And I'm hung in a loop.

    Any advice?

    Thanks much.

    There is no actual need to backup in raw (1:1) mode unless your HDD is physically failing.

    Once 1:1 mode disabled, entire backup should go from Windows w\o restart needed.

    Please check if it works.

    Also I would recommend to perform 1:1 backup from WinPE Recovery CD (separate self-burning ISO image in EXE package available from My Account- My Downloads on Paragon web-site) . It should perform RAW backup w\o errors.
