New Version includes support for Windows 7 and Partition Manager 10 is the only drive partitioning solution that comes with backup and recovery functionality
London, UK, April 7th, 2009, - Paragon Software Group (PSG), the technology leader in innovative data security and data management solutions, today announced the release of Partition Manager 10 Personal and Professional versions. Partition Manager has been the company's best seller for many years offering its users unsurpassed level of the provided functionality and ease of use. This latest version is the most reliable drive partitioning tool available in the market today. It is the only drive partitioning tool that offers the backup and restore functionality to guarantee data loss free operation. By providing support for Apple Boot Camp and even replacing it with the option to install Windows as a sole operating system on an Intel-based Mac, it does what none of its competitors can - bring Mac and PC users together.
As the capacity of hard disk drives has rapidly increased, the need for disk partitioning becomes increasingly more important. Disk partitioning is the separation of the data storage space of a hard disk drive into separate areas referred to as partitions. A user may decide to split a hard disk into multiple partitions in order to organize data more effectively. Each partition can be accessed as if it was a separate disk.
Paragon Software has over 10 years experience in delivering drive partitioning tools. Partition Manage10.0 has unique functionality in the Market:
- The only drive partitioning solution that comes with backup and recovery functionality fully fledged support for Windows 7.
- Support of new partitioning-technology (GPT), used now in Windows 7/Vista, Server 2008, Mac OS X and Linux.
- With support for Apple Boot Camp the user can backup and restore configurations as well as redistribute any unused space between Mac OS X and Windows partitions
- The option to install Windows on an Intel-based Mac as a sole operating system, or as a second operating system, thus making a dual-boot system
- Support for all the latest hardware thanks to multi-platform bootable recovery media based on the latest Linux kernel, PTS DOS and WinPE 2.0 (WinPE 2.0 available for Professional version only)
- An improved two-level user interface to satisfy the needs of the most demanding customer
