History:- When I first read about Paragon-Software B&R, I was blown away with what it claimed it could do. I had to investigate further. I downloaded the Program, registered, Installed it and away i went... I did a backup on the fly, without rebooting. This was Great !! no more 10year old Symantec Ghost in DOS mode... I even made a recovery media, and put it somewhere safe. ------- Then Today, a nasty virus/malware/something.. A BSOD and no boot, or safe mode available. I thought to myself, no, a rebuild, what a waste of 24hrs.. BUT good news, I have a Backup & recovery program, and only last week did I do a backup (about 1 backup per month for me) I hunted around for my secretly hidden recovery media, located it, and set about to boot and restore... But to my surprise, It didn't work. All I got was the "white rectangle" problem as reported in a sticky above. I read through all the info on a fix, download another copy of B&R 2010 Free, to install on my old dust covered PC, and then spent the next 6 hours trying to get the recovery media to boot. Finally after trail and error, I did, but it then failed again, trying to load the graphics drivers. You would have thought a company that's been around for 20 odd years to better programmers than this. There is no easy way around this. Problems---- -The backup files themselves are only readable by Paragon-Software -The linux/dos recovery media is a Joke !!!! -I have a Win-UBCD but I dont know of or have access to the recovery files. Alas I have concluded the following -Paragon-software backup & Recovery 2010 Free, and Backup Recovery Home edition (trail) recovery part is a Joke. -I am following up with Australian Authorities to find out if this product is in Breach of Consumer Laws of "false and misleading" claims. -Advising to anyone/everyone that they SHOULD fully TEST the product before committing to it.. I've learnt the hard way. ------- done thus far in case someone can help copied the "new" rmb.exe file into the Original Folder. -This avoided the "white rectangles" recovery media boot problem About to try Win-UBCD and executing the recovery program. -*- This recovery program should be 100% folder/file independent. A 23kb file that executes a "wizard" is NOT 100% independent. Fred PS Most likely this will be my last post, as I'm sure the Admin will kill my account for such a negative view on paragon-software.
