    Paragon Hard Disk Manager 12 Suite and Professional Editions are released.

    What's new in 12 version:

    New Partitioning Engine:
    - The strongest and fastest partitioning engine
    - Highly compatible with all kinds of new hard drives
    - Support for the new partitioning scheme GPT and all modern file systems
    - Support for UEFI installations of operating systems
    Split partition feature when you need to split any partition on two with desired size and proportions
    Support of the latest version of Oracle’s Hypervisor “VirtualBox 4”
    Improved write-operations by using asynchronous backup to improve the speed of the product’s backup processing
    Encrypted Backup to avoid unauthorized access to your backup files

    Suite Edition only:

    P2V Adjust OS wizard and P2V Copy wizard to perform system migration to a new hardware or to a virtual environment

    Professional Edition only:

    Connect VD with non-destructive and snapshot mode to mount the virtual disk in a special read/write mode that creates a snapshot and applies all changes after the snapshot
    Resume operations on virtual volumes in case of their disconnection or any other unexpected situation
    New wipe algorithms: US Navy, British HMG Infosec, German VSItR, Australian ASCI 33, Guttman's, Schneier's


    I have tested the backup speed of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 12 compares to Paragon Hard Disk Manager 11 and Image for Windows.

    -WinPE 3.1
    -VMWare: XP used 742MB HDD space

    Paragon Hard Disk Manager 12 : 19.58s (time from my phone)
    Paragon Hard Disk Manager 11 : 32.91s (time from my phone)
    Image for Windows : 20s (time from its app)

    The backup speed of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 12 and Image for Windows near the same. But it faster than Paragon Hard Disk Manager 11 about 59.5%.
    It's not slow now:D

    It's great to know!
    The biggest gripe i had with Paragon was its sluggish backup speed so I used to only use the partitioning function of it. Now it appears to be finally fixed.
    one thing though, the op, did you compare the image size after backup for IFW and paragon? Backup speed has a lot to do with the compression level.

    I used the default compression level, normal or standard.
    Image for Windows' image size is smaller than Paragon, but not many.

    If I want to restore an Paragon image manually, which one of these files am I supposed to click on to restore the image?


    Does anyone know?
