Introducing Paragon’s Boot Camp Backup Software

While there are a number of ways to archive your data on a Mac, backing up a Windows partition via OS X simply hasn’t been possible – until now. Thanks to Paragon Software Group, the capability has become a reality with the release of Paragon Boot Camp Backup. Not only does the software let you backup Windows partition data to a Mac hard drive, but it is even the industry’s first application to do so. Moreover, the software is, at least at the moment, available at absolutely no cost.

Konstantin Komarov, CEO of Paragon Software Group, highlighted the versatility of Paragon Boot Camp Backup. He was quoted as saying: “We're releasing this as a free product to complete our Mac OS X Boot Camp portfolio, which consists of platform interoperability solutions like NTFS for Mac and HFS+ for Windows—file system drivers that enable you to work with both file systems that are present on a Boot Camp configuration—and the Boot Camp partitioning solution Camptune. It's free at the moment but can likely to get incorporated by our commercial boot camp solutions later.”

The CEO of Paragon Software Group continued his interview by stressing the importance of data backup in the 21st century, especially for enterprises. He said: “Unfortunately, still a significant number of SMBs don't realize how important it is to have a secure and efficient backup and recovery system in place. Data backup is of a very high importance for today's businesses because data is the most important asset for businesses. Additionally, you can't run most businesses without a PC, even if it only involves writing invoices or orders. Even more important is the customer data.”

Komarov finished his interview by highlighting the different needs of home consumers and corporate users. He said: “They don't want to think about complicated backup schemas or install complex software, while corporate users do care about privacy a lot," he said. "They need minimal RTO (recovery time objective) and RPO (recovery point objective), which is not okay in comparison with locally stored backups. So they want more control, and much better performance.”

Apart from the Mac-to-Windows migration and the Mac-to-Mac restoration functionality, Paragon Boot Camp Backup includes a number of key features and benefits. Primary backup options with Paragon Boot Camp Backup include sector-level backup for system backups, virtual disk backup and incremental imaging, which backs up files only as they are modified. Scheduled backups let you automate the process, and selective restoration features let you choose which specific files you want to restore.

Paragon Boot Camp Backup is compatible with several different Mac operating systems, including OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, OS X 10.9 Mavericks and OS X 10.10 Yosemite. It is available now and can currently be downloaded at no cost.
