The only snapshot based backup solution for comprehensive protection of both data & systems!
Easily create an exact point-in-time copy of your data & system, and when a disaster strikes – get everything back in minutes. Unlike Time Machine and other file-level backup utilities, our solution has very fast backup and restore capabilities. Now you can backup running applications and locked system files, and if your system fails – there is no need re-install, just boot from the Mac® OS X Install DVD and launch the restore operation. This is a huge time saver compared to other methods.
True live protection
Traditional backups involving file archiving has a number of drawbacks, like:
- Running applications usually require exclusive rights for processed files, thus preventing a backup program from copying them.
- During a volume backup to ensure accessibility of files and the data integrity, a program requires suspension and/or termination of all running applications. For high-capacity disk systems, this could take hours.
Snapshot-based backup easily solves these problems. It’s a common industry term denoting the ability to record the state of a storage device at any given moment (make a snapshot), and then preserve that snapshot as a guide for restoring the machine in case of emergency.
The old way: In case of a system malfunction (it fails to boot), you should re-install the system first. To do that, you need to boot from a distributive CD and install the system (~40 minutes). After that, you need to set up Time Machine and roll back to the required state of the system. This process is time-consuming as it involves re-installation of the operating system.
The better way: With Paragon Snapshot for Mac you don’t need to re-install the system, just boot from a Mac OS X Installation DVD and restore via Disk Utility. Moreover, data retrieval from snapshot is accomplished through private interfaces, which is faster, than processing files on a file system level. Reduce the number of steps it takes to restore your system with Snapshot for Mac®.

Another very good review for our latest NTFS for Mac 8.0. We appreciate all of the blogs that have given us their feedback on our software.
Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X will be welcomed by anybody who finds themselves working with both OS X and Windows, but particularly anybody using Boot Camp in a dual boot environment. When opening, copying and editing files, transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s can be expected and performance is further enhanced by the fact that Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X feature full support for 64-bit Snow Leopard.
HFS for Windows, the only software that lets you read Apple iPods, Macs and iPad data from a Windows PC. It is a well known fact that Windows cannot read from and write to HFS+ partitions. This limits the ability to exchange or share files between Windows and Mac OS X file systems. Occasionally, users will rely on the services of FAT partitions which can be read and written to by both Windows and Mac OS X. FAT partitions have disadvantages and limitations as well for example you can’t store/create files greater than 4GB in size. Moreover, what if your data is already stored on a Mac-formatted partition and you want to migrate them to a Windows-formatted drive (NTFS) to preserve the integrity of the data?

We were contacted by Makeuseof.com about an upcoming giveaway they were going to hold. They asked if we would be interested handing out some licenses of Paragon’s NTFS for Mac software. Since we are proud of this technology and we are about to release a new version of NTFS for Mac, we jumped at the chance to spread the word. For those of you that work with Macs on a regular basis and are also in a mixed environment of Macs and PCs this is the application that can help.
Break down the barriers between Windows and Mac® OS!
Including the new MacBrowser for Windows, NTFS for Mac® OS X provides a unique complete solution and creates an effective two-way communication channel between Mac® OS X and Windows. Effectively you get two products in one: You can browse contents, read and modify files, copy and create new files and folders on both file systems with both operating systems!
MakeUseOf had an 11 day give away where each day they handed out a new Mac application to a few lucky readers that posted comments on their Facebook wall. It was a pleasure being apart of the giveaway and I think we will be working together in the future for other promotions with Paragon Software. Thanks again to Jackson and the team at MakeUseOf.com for the opportunity to be apart of your contest.
To the winners, you should receive your software early this week. We have to put your information into our licensing engine and spit them out to you.
