    Hello,
    I have Partition Manager 11. Whenever I save backup partitions C: and D:, both have System Restore points enabled, PM11 deletes the restore points for the D: partition. Is there anyway I can prevent PM11 from doing this? I am using Windows 7 SP1 Pro.

    Does Disk Manager Pro 15 delete System Restore points on the D: partition like PM11?

    Does Paragon provide tech support on this forum anymore or have they discontinued this service?

    Can someone answer my question? Partition Manager 11 deletes the restore points for the D: partition. Is there anyway I can prevent PM11 from doing this? I am using Windows 7 SP1 Pro. I typically use the WinPE CD to make copies of my partitions. When I do this, PM11 deletes the restore points. PM11 started deleting my restore points when I upgraded to an SSD (see the first and last minute). Because of this bug, I have not made backups in months.

    I don´t thing it is a bug. Normally, you don´t need restore points in a full backup. Besides, restore points can increase significantly the size of a backup. If you do backups regularly, you can even disable System restore.

    No, PM11 is deleting the restore points of the original partition and the copy. People still need to use the restore points when they use their system. I have tried different settings to keep WinPE PM11 from deleting my restore points but it just goes ahead and does it. This started after I installed my SSD. I only make partition backups once a month.

    PM 11 is old. You could try a more recent Paragon program, or an alternative such as Macrium Reflect Free. For partition work, Partition Wizard is a good alternative.

    The problem is I would need to make another WinPE CD boot disk. I'm not even sure if Paragon offers tech support anymore. That's why I haven't bothered upgrading. Do you first install the Windows Partition Manager 15 Pro and then create the WinPE CD boot disk from inside Windows to get the USB 3.0 drivers? Is that how it works now?

    To create a WinPE boot medium, you have to install the program in Windows and then use the Recovery Media Builder, which is available from the tiled (or Express Mode) interface. It´s not possible to create directly a boot CD, you may create a boot UFD (USB stick) or create an ISO file and "burn" the CD with Windows or with an external burner program.

    If you need a WinPE with drivers for USB 3.0, you can create it using the WADK package from MS. Use either WADK for Windows 8.1 or WADK for Windows 10, both have drivers for USB 3.0. Another approach is to create a WinPE 3.0 [based on Windows 7] using WAIK and add the USB drivers from your installation in the process with the Recovery Media Builder. In either case, you have to download and install WADK or WAIK [WAIK is the smallest download]. This process is very much simplified if you use Macrium Free.

    Rescue Kit 14 Free is not installed in the operating system itself, but only offers to create the bootable media.
