I may have to nip down to the local newsagents tomorrow and see if they have this...

Thanks!

Looks interesting will check out some reviews - heat added.

You can register for a free license directly at Paragon and no doubt just download the software for free from the internet.
It doesn’t support Windows 7 apparently!

Just to mention that it does however support Vista.

Does it do anything more than the partition management console in Vista/7 ?
Might have a look if so.

Paragon is good software but like you say a lot of these features are built in to 7. I did try this version on XP and had no complaints, other than the huge (120Mb-ish) installation file size (versus a fraction of that for previous versions with very similar features).

You might want to have a look at Easeus if you want a bit more functionality - there's a free version for W7 32 bit and I would recommend it

Heat for this(Paragon) deal as well.

You can download any software you like from the web. I believe its called theft.

I didn't know it was incompatible with win7 though. Where did you see that?

not all downloading if theft :roll:

In this case the poster pointed out that a valid license is available to use the program freely, thus saving peeps £4.99 and alot of space in their rubbish/recycle bins.

From Paragon's website:

"Please note: YOU CANNOT DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE FROM THIS WEB SITE, we are only providing necessary information needed to activate software received from a magazine or other special offer."

Just because they give the licence details online, doesn't mean the software is freely available, otherwise I imagine they would offer it for download.
#11
yeah, I saw that - but why do they specifically say "..from this site"

..suggests to me download is an option, just not direct from them.. otherwise they should have simply put "You cannot download software".. but they made extra effort to say "..from this site"

btw, size is due to it now having x86 and x64 versions in the one setup file, apparently..
#12
Good deal.

If you are just after a partition manager then I'd save the £4.99 and get GParted. It's a completely free Linux based partition manager (boot disc). Very easy and reliable to use. http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

Your belief system would be wrong then. Many legal downloads are available, try to spend a bit more time looking at facts and a bit less posting garbage.

Yeah you really know what you're talking about don't you, it's NOT called theft, to be theft you would have to be depriving someone of something permanently (hence why police refer to things as TWOK not theft it's easier to prove as to be theft you would have to prove intent to permanently deprive the owner) as downloads are not a physical product it can NEVER be theft as much as the RIAA, MPAA, governments etc might like to imply it is copyright infringement.

Don't let that get in the way of a good soundbite though eh? :thumbsup:

I've used v8 a few times on Vista/XP machines and it's always worked ok. Not the sort of utility you need every day, but handy when you need it.

Does anyone know if this woks with intel matrix raid? (software raid) To clone/restore partitions

Much slower partitiong through dos, especially with todays large disks

Gparted (as mentioned) works in a 32bit enviroment so is a lot faster

It was officially available to download from legit sites but I’m not sure if that’s still the case.

But who are the idiots? According to the Manufacturer it doesn’t support Windows 7 so do you suggest we ignore them and listen to you?

“Partition Manager 9.5 doesn’t support Windows 7. Partition Manager 10 currently provides full Windows 7 support.”

Not that it matters as Version 10 is available as a free download anyway which makes this deal redundant.

What with all the talk of legality, this download isn't...

Hiren's definitely isn't legal. You could use UBCD with it's suite of FREE utils, although it doesn't get updated enough recently. Techsupportalert has this list of recommended FREE partition managers :
