I am having a terrible time trying to understand Paragon back up. I have the free verson. I clicked on back up dick or partition and so far I have used 4 DVD's, it's still going and has taken a couple of hours. Is this normal?. I am running Windows XP Home, SP3. I am on my desktop computer at the moment and trying to back up my laptop. Also, the file system is FAT on laptop and NTFS on desktop computer does Paragon support both. thank you for any advice as I am totally stumped. I created a boot disk I think but it happened so quickly I'm not sure if I did it correctly. dorry for being so dumb . Joanelaine.
