Free Paragon Partition Manager 9.5 Professional (for a limited time)!

Paragon is known for the quality software it makes. So when I hear about a chance to get one of their software for free… I almost faint with excitement I am very happy. Until now the only major, besides Giveaway of the Day giveaways, copy of Paragon software I have been able to attain for free legally is Paragon Hard Disk Manager 8.5 SE [1]. Today I am here to tell you about how you can get Partition Manager 9.5 Professional for free! However please note Paragon Partition Manager 9.5 Professional is only available for free from August 7th, 2009 to August 11, 2009 midnight BST (British Summer Time). If you do not download and register it between that time you are out of luck – sorry (go back to Paragon Hard Disk Manager 8.5 SE [2] or try EASEUS Partition Master [3] [the link to EASEUS Partition Master is a review of the Pro version but a very similar free version is also available])! However if you do download it and have registered it, you should be able to uninstall/reinstall it at your leisure as long as you keep the .EXE file and registration information safe.

Before I spill the beans on how to get it, let me give you an quick overview of what this software can do:

User Friendly Fault Minimizing Interface

Backup Facilities

– Backup The term backup originates from the time when the best way to protect valuable information was to store it in form of archives on external media. It’s become now a general notion to mean making duplications of data for protection purposes. to local mounted/unmounted (without drive letter assigned) partitions;

– Backup to a special secured place on the hard disk called the Backup Capsule that has an independent system layout (e.g. a separate partition) and will stay operable should the active file system be damaged. To avoid an accidental removing or unauthorized access of the backup data, this partition is hidden and thus cannot be mounted in the operating system;

– Backup to external media (CD/DVD) to guarantee a high level of data protection as long as the backup media is kept secure;

– Backup to a network drive to stand a better chance of success in case of a hard disk failure.

Restore Facilities

Copy Facilities

Boot Management Facilities

Partition/Hard Disk Management Facilities

File System Optimization Facilities

Auxiliary Facilities

Holy crap that is a lot of words explaining the features in very complicated ways don’t you agree? As they say “a picture is a worth a thousand words”:

Okay still confused about this software? Let me put it even more simply: it kicks ***. Great software.

Paragon Partition Manager 9.5 Pro works on 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. If you need Windows 7 support you will need to purchase the latest v10.0 ($80 for Pro or $40 for Personal).

To get Paragon Partition Manager 9.5 Pro for free, do the following:

Update: please be patient – the download site is going very slow!

Update2: Screw this. If VNUNET has a problem with this they can contact me directly. It is their own **** fault for having sucky servers – I tried my best to direct you to their website as per their wishes but now I am afraid many people will miss out on this. Here are some mirrors to download this program:

Paragon Partition Manager Pro
Paragon Partition Manager Pro (Vista 64-bit only)

Download Paragon Partition Manager Pro from those mirrors at your own risk. I did not create the mirrors so I cannot verify the uploader did not modify the original files to add malicious crap before uploading them.

Update3: This promo has ended so I am removing the above mirror links.
