    Hi, folks:

    A question for those who have used or been using Paragon Hard Disk Manager 8.5;

    Until recently, I have not paid enough attention to its Backup Capsule feature. Last few days , I managed to create a healthy partition for it on two laptops.

    The feature remind me of True Image's Secure partition, which I used couple years ago, and was very impressed. My question now is:

    How reliable is this feature? Does it save you when PC becomes unbootable?
    According to its manual, user can press a hot key(such F1) to reboot from this mighty backup capsule. And then ?

    Can you share some insights? Thanks.

    Unfortunately, Paragon puts the boot loader on the same drive as the backup capsule, unlike ATI which puts it on the system drive. The Paragon boot util didn't work for me, in any case. I usually run my imaging program from a backup system on another drive anyway so it's no big deal.
