    I cannot find an option to modify the compression level? Is there any setting for it?

    Under Tools > Settings, you can set the compression level to: none, fast, normal, and best.

    You can also open layout.ini located in Paragon folder and change "Best Compression Level =" to value 9 for highest compression rate.

    Sorry, but I think, that's true for Partition Manager Pro only (I have a free edition!).

    My question was actually about my purchased Partition Manager 10 Personal -installed on another computer-. There isn't a compression setting in Copy and Backup Options. Or am I still missing it? :doubt:

    Hello Nabu,

    Partition Manager does not have that option in the Settings. Only way to change compression with PM is through the layout.ini located in Program Files/Paragon Software

    Change Compression value to 9 for best compression.
