FREIBURG, Germany – June 16, 2011 – Paragon Software Group (PSG), the technology leader in innovative data security and data management solutions, today announces the release of a major update to Paragon Partition Manager 11 Professional – the complete physical and virtual drive partitioning and system migration software solution for Windows PC systems, including Windows 7. A classic solution for performing a spectrum of hard disk maintenance tasks on all operating systems, disk types and capacities, Partition Manager 11 Pro now supports operations performed on the latest Advanced Formatted Drives (AFD), HDD and SSD, RAID and inside virtual disks of 2TB capacity and larger. Partition Manager 11 Pro is available for free to existing Partition Manager 11 Pro customers.
Paragon Partition Manager 11 Pro supports Physical to Virtual (P2V) migration, allowing the user to create configurations with several operating systems, put the old system into a virtual machine and safely transfer it onto a brand new computer, test all software before actual installation, or perform full-range maintenance tasks. With support for all popular virtual machine formats, Partition Manager 11 Pro provides a variety of partitioning routines to be performed in offline mode, without the need to boot up the virtual machine.
Using the mighty Partition Manager 11 Pro Physical to Physical (P2P) functionality tool, users can migrate a Windows operating system from old or malfunctioning hardware to partially or completely new hardware. Paragon’s newly updated Adaptive Restore 3.5 technology automatically applies all necessary changes to allow the system to boot in the changed environment, and allows easy implementation of new hardware drivers. Guaranteeing the safest and smoothest partitioning operations, Partition Manager 11 Pro edition includes Paragon Alignment Tool functionality to seamlessly solve all partition misalignment issues that can cause file system performance decline and SSD cell degradation.
