Be Safe AND Secure: Migrate Your System Effortlessly to Windows® 7TM with this Intelligent Program from Paragon Software
Paragon Software Group (PSG), the technology leader in innovative data security and data management solutions, today announced the immediate release of System Upgrade Utilities 2010. This pioneering technology has been specifically designed for straightforwardly migrating from Windows XP or Vista to the new Windows 7. The program even allows the user to keep their old system.
When it comes to computers and software it's not always easy to stay well informed all of the time. The continuous improvement in hardware performance and capability, combined with the almost relentless introduction of new software solutions leads, understandably, to many computer users feeling intimidated by the overwhelming choice. The net result is that these customers tend to stick to what they already know. Many are afraid to install new software that, to them, may not seem to be worth the effort. These concerns increase dramatically when it comes to installing or even updating a new Operating System such as Microsoft Windows 7.
This is where Paragon System Upgrade Utilities 2010 comes in. The program is a combination of proven and brand new Paragon technologies. In addition, it even offers two intelligent and simple solutions to use and test Windows 7 without having to abandon Windows XP or Vista. A built-in backup feature guarantees that, in the case of a system failure, the old system can be restored easily and quickly. Creating a recovery CD helps to minimize the consequences that a system crash or malfunction might cause as the CD can be used to boot an otherwise unbootable system. Before installing any new software, any system or valuable data should always be backed up. All these features make Paragon System Upgrade Utilities 2010 a unique tool for migrating from Windows XP or Vista to Windows 7.
Konstantin Komarov, CEO of Paragon Software noted that "Enabling the end user to keep up-to-date all the time is easy with Paragon System Utilities 2010 which helps you to evaluate Windows 7 in detail. Reliable Paragon technologies offer two possible ways for testing: Establishing a dual boot system or migrating the current operating system to a virtual environment."
To set up a dual boot system the software creates a new partition for the installation and use of Windows 7. Thus the user can keep their familiar Windows XP or Vista environment. The Windows 7 Set Up Wizard takes the user through the stages step by step and performs all partitioning operations necessary without troubling or bothering the user. With two partitions both operating systems are equally accessible, offering the user a choice between either, each time the PC is turned on. Having made the selection between the old and the new system, Paragon System Upgrade Utilities 2010 helps the user to easily uninstall the boot manager and one of the systems. Every user will appreciate the additional free memory/disk space. The partitioning features will still be working after the installation of the new system, ensuring that there is no shortage of disk space. Establishing a dual boot system is also possible on brand-new hardware.
If the migration option is chosen, Paragon System Upgrade Utilities 2010 will create a virtual clone of the current operating system. After the installation of (for example) Windows 7 this clone can be transferred to a virtual environment within Windows 7. It is also possible to transfer/migrate Windows 7 into a virtual environment within XP or Vista. Thus the user can work with both systems at the same time and even use selected programs from one system within the other system.
There is also the possibility that a user who buys a new computer system with pre-installed Windows 7 wants to continue to use their older Windows XP on the new machine. In this case, either a Virtual Machine or a dual boot system can be used.
Owners of Windows 7 can download Windows Virtual PC, software to create virtual environments, free of charge from:
Paragon System Upgrade Utilities 2010 will be available from the end of October 2009 for £19.95 inc
