dotTech Exclusive: 20 free licenses of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite (Part 1)!

Without a doubt software by the Paragon Software Group are a hit not only on dotTech (simply see the amount of views articles on Paragon software get as opposed to other software), but in the whole computer software realm. Indeed, built as solid as rocks and containing features which are rarely, if ever, matched by rivals, Paragon software deserve all the praise they receive. So when I say dotTech has a real treat for dotTechies, I mean it… with emphasis. What treat you ask? Free licenses of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite! 20 free licenses, to be exact.

For those that don’t know, here is a list of the key features of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite:

Since Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite is newly updated from v2009 (Paragon has not even released it to the public yet – it will be released to the general public in the next few days), I am sure everyone is also interested in the changes/improvements made in this latest version in the Paragon Hard Disk Manager line (I quote the developer for this list):

  • P2P Adjust OS
  • Smart Driver Injector
  • Smart Backup Wizard
  • Backup to an FTP server
  • Selective Restore
  • Scheduling for the File backup
  • Advanced system of filters
  • Boot Corrector for WinPE
  • The latest Linux kernel (Linux-based Recovery environment)
  • WinPE 2.1 recovery environment
  • Safe Defragmentation Mode
  • More flexibility for online data processing techniques
  • Better support for 64-bit platforms
  • Better support for GUID Partition Table (GPT) Better support for Apple Boot Camp
  • Better support for Linux ExtFS

Now, lets get to the juicy part: How to get a free license of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite. Well, as I already mentioned dotTech has 20 licenses to give away for free as part of a promotion sponsored by Paragon. However, this promotion will work a little bit different than other dotTech promotions have in the past. You may notice that the title of this post has a “Part 1” in it. That is because this specific promotion will take place in two parts. For part one, everyone is given the ability to download Paragon Had Disk Manager 2010 Suite (a 10 day fully functioning trial bar WinPE). In part two, whoever wants a chance to win a license of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite must post a comment answering the following questions:

  • What you used (or will use) Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite for?
  • What is your favorite feature in Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite?
  • Are there any aspects of Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite that can be improved (bug fixes, more features, interface enhancements, etc.)? If so, please explain.
  • If you were in the market looking for a hard drive management software, would you pay $49.95 to purchase Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite? In other words, do you think $49.95 is a fair price for this software? If not, please specify the price you would prefer.

Take note a whole new article – which will be posted in a few days – will be created for part two. The comments and the answers to the questions must be answered in the thread for part two. Entry in the giveaway will not be accepted if a comment is posted in this article instead of the article for part two. Also, other details relevant to this promotion, such as updating abilities, possible discounts, etc. will be discussed in the article for part two.

So, what are you waiting for? Go download Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite and give it a try! Remember these are fully functioning (except for WinPE) 10 day trials. If you are one of the lucky winners of a license, or if you purchase Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite, you won’t need to install or download the software again; rather you will be able to unlock the trial version. You can download Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite from the following links:

    @Eddy: Well, I was quite excited by this offer when I first saw it–but in the absence of ANY activity I’m outta here!

    I suspect that this is just a volunteer site, but that’s no excuse to treat visitors with such a lack of respect!

  2. fredericmartin

    whan windows goes to 7 then new updated softwares are imporant to instal since they offer more compatibilities and enhanced feature.I will need this to split carefully and pro way my hard drive for organization purposes

  3. s

    Still no updates from Ashraf.
    No, I am not interested in this promo or part2.
    Joji, Sunny, Emil & WECH are making up for the absence of Ashraf’s inputs by posting their funny & humorous comments.
    I hope Ashraf is just busy & there is nothing wrong.

  4. Sunny

    Where art thou, O Ashraf?

    As night turns into day we seek thee, but under no stone do we discover The Missing One.

    Whatever, just hope that it’s a good holiday that renders you invisible to us your loyal friends, and nothing too awful.

    Come back when you can.

  5. Joji

    @51, Eddy

    Until Ashraf either comes back from the following:

    1. From the hospital, he probably injured himself. O_O
    2. From going on a cruise but forgot his laptop OR it broke down and couldn’t contact us! D:
    3. He went to outer space and learned the ways of the Jedi and faught Darth… wait… WTF!
    4. He’s too busy and stressed out from work.
    5. He’s playing Call of Duty MW way too much… addicted! XD
    6. He’s out with his girlfriend and trying to impress her with his computer h@cK0rs of pure amazingness.
    7. He forgot about us D:
    8. He’s shopping for new stuff at Best Buy to soup up’ his crappy computer.
    9. He’s working at Microsoft to do all that Halo REACH stuff.
    10. He became nuts and is trying to travel the world in 80 days.
    11. He reached the center of the earth and is about to make a great discovery!
    12. He’s watching TV.

    There are about 500 other reasons why Ashraf hasn’t been posting in a while… but that would be too long. :(

    Hope that helped!

    I have downloaded and will test this software so I can complete part II of the competition. This software would really come in handy given I just had to reformat a hard disk of mine (which was not fully backed up) and I lost a lot of stuff.

  7. STF4all

    Love the Paragon programs I have (yeah DotTech and GOTD). Thanks so much for the additional help and support you give with each program you review. It makes all the difference that is not computer savvy but wants to learn.
    I already had Paragon’s 9.5 Professional installed but when I try to open it 2010 Suite comes up. If I don’t win a license will my earlier version still work after I uninstall this one?
    Any perks to donators for the drawing?

    Thanks Ashraf for this great program (HDM 2010), before it’s official release. I am currently using it. It is very much comprehensive program and offer much more than expected. I can really do every hard disk management aspect. Currently in free mode, I am missing WinPE 2.1 based bootcd (it is not included). Eagerly waiting for part 2. Count me in too.

  10. Karl

    I’ve been using Paragon to make image backups for a couple of years now and it works great. On the few occasions that I’ve needed to restore files or the whole system it worked flawlessly. I’ve tried the Virtualization Manager from GOTD and liked it so much I bought it. They make great, dependable products. Can’t wait to try HDM 2010.


  11. WECH

    @moe-chan: if I’m not mistaken, the free one is let you get pass installation only, you’ll still be prompted for “real” key every time and subject to 10-day trial, at least mine is like that(the product key won’t work after installation, copy and paste, can’t be typo)

    @Bruce Alan: BTW You do realize that this promotion has been setup the way it has in respect to the wishes of Paragon? And I don’t blame them; it is a terrific model to follow when promoting freebies because it helps out the developer – by receiving feedback – and helps out readers who get freebies. So, go ahead… Paragon will probably just laugh at you >.>’.

  13. benhenry

    Thanks Ashraf! I know it must be hard work to set these things up. I’m very happy with the combination of Easeus Part mangager pro (I got because of your review) and the Todo backup plugin for BartPE.

    I might try the Paragon and try my luck for a free license. I’m just a little worried about managing partitions set up with one software with a different disc manager…

  14. Mark Churchill

    Hey Ashraf, thanks for the opportunity to win this premium software. It’s exactly what I’ve been praying for. I’m going to step out in faith, in accordance with God’s truth, and install it in preparation of activating it. I don’t foresee all of your fans wanting to do this though; because, many of them don’t like to install software unless they’re sure they’re going to keep it. Installing & uninstalling software can make such a mess of a computer’s registry. Services like dottech have been such a blessing because they allow people to make informed decisions about software without a lot of hassle. Throw my name in the hat & on to part 2. God Bless & good Day. Later…

  15. Bruce Alan

    Will you still give a Paragon license, when available, to someone who feels like an idiot for standing by and thinks you’re an a*****e for treating readers like dogs waiting for a bisquit?

  16. Adrian

    Is there any special licenses reserved for contributors this time? BTW, I have submitted a new article. Ashraf, you might want to check it out.

    P,S, I couldn’t post any comments when I was logged in.

  17. Friend

    Sorry. It is WinPE 2.1. Currently downloading both x86 + x64. Thanks Ashraf for this amazing giveaway offer. I hope I will be one of those 20 winners. Love dotTech for free giveaway of great softwares.

  18. Jeff

    I think this is a good approach for you to take with regard to your “giveaways.” Developers will be much more likely to be willing to part with the licenses which make the giveaways possible if they think they might get something in return. By requiring responses to these questions, the company stands to get feedback comparable to what they would have to pay a market research firm to find out through focus groups. Congratulations on seeing this possibility.

    I have worked previously with smaller version of this partition manager and it was great but now I have moved to 64bit it is not compatible for me Need new license for the new OS.
    I am working with this application for resizing and backup.
    I am not think there are changes need to be done with it, it is perfect!.
    For me it is too expensive now to buy license but maybe in the future I will.
