Please excuse the title , it was a suggestion from a disgruntled ( one who hasn't read the manual) paragon user (Not a current member at wilders!!!) I use dd10 and am ok with it, no need to spend 80 bucks on another app. Is The higher price paragon disk manager able to outdo DD10? Is it able to copy an entire partition correctly? Can it copy a os onto a different partition like DD10 does? We use dd10 to copy a os all the time and it works well with the school recommended IBM boxes here at circle , but we must often use the repair console to get it on the loader( depending on the box). Does paragon partition manager do this with out the added trouble of using the repair console? Many other users also use dell which is also on the list of recommended boxes (HP is also on the OK list) ? If there is any one with real world experience on this matter it will help out as dd10 does not work on all boxes. Many students use e machines as they are cheap but often do not play well with dd10. Please help with some info!!!
