Paragon Backup and Restore 16 Full Version has just been released.

Paragon is giving this away for free for 7 days starting 23/11/16.
This is the full version of the software, not a trial.

You need to follow the instructions on the page, on how to obtain a licence key. This will need to be installed (not just downloaded) to activate the full licence.

If you need a more complete product:
Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 Pro (which is also due an update to version 16), is probably the best Disk Resizing/Imaging Software bar none. Works across Windows, Linux and Mac systems on a single SSD/Hard disk. MBR / GPT Disk types.

Warning:
If you are thinking of buying the new Macbook 'Pro'* w/touchbar, make sure you have an active backup strategy, because the SSD is integrated into the motherboard (non removable). Spill a coffee on your new macbook Pro w/touchbar, your data will be Gone, with no way of retrieving.

*Integrating the SSD into the motherboard to save money, really doesn't make it 'Pro'.

iFixit.com's teardown of the new Macbook Pro 2016 w/touchbar, yellow squares show the intergrated SSD on the motherboard, with no means of getting your data back if you drop/spill/damage the macbook Pro itself. The USB-type C / side slits for sound also act as possible liquid ingress points.
The Sandisk Flash chips seem 'purposefully' to be mounted at flex-stress points in the motherboard design.

Be careful with the new macbook Pro 2016 w/touchbar.

Probably seeing it as a different install of Windows/new machine, just install and register another copy (using a different email address you can associate to that machine), its free after all.

You sort of expect it nowadays on a cheap surfing £250 laptop, but not when its called 'Pro' and costs £1749 for the 13'' and £2349 for the 15'', you tend to think you'd be storing fairly important data on that SSD and at least have a secondary fail safe, of been able to remove the SSD to get your data back, in the event the macbook dies.

Is this actually available for Macs? Seems to be PC only...

The free version will install under Bootcamp/Windows, from there it can access your mac HFS+ partition from 'underneath'. It does recognise NTFS(Win),FAT,EXT3/EXT4 (Linux),HFS+(mac). MBR/GPT Partition Layouts.
