Paragon Drive Copy 9.0 Personal SE

Replacing your old hard drive with a speedy, high-capacity drive is one of the most efficient PC upgrades you can make. Don’t go through the tiresome process of reinstalling your OS, applications and data. Just run Paragon Drive Copy instead, and it’ll clone your existing drive in the shortest possible time. Once your new system is up and running, you can also use the program as a simple backup tool.
Key Features:
Copy Hard Disk Wizard - fast copy of your entire hard drive to a new one.
One Button Copy Wizard – automatically copy your hard drive with just one mouse click. Nothing could be easier!
Copy Partition Wizard - copy individual hard drive partitions with a few easy mouse clicks.
Make the new drive bootable in the event hard drive fails.
Schedule drive copy or partition copy operations for backup and archive.

Since I got keylogger trojans trying to load itself onto my PC when installing directly from the GiveAwayOfTheDay website, I’ve been very cautious about them. 'Make sure your security is up to par if downloading directly from the GAOTD site.

Online Armor allowed a discount code to be able to get their firewall directly from their own site instead of having to download from GAOTD, and that method worked well.

I’ve inquired directly to Paragon if they’d offer a GiveAwayOfTheDay discount code for those of us who might not feel confident in GAOTD’s security, and would like to download directly from them for this giveaway…will let you know if Paragon answers…

How do you know you got keylogger trojans from the site? Did your anti-virus detect it, or did you begin seeing some unusual system behavior?

Does Paragon Drive Copy copy partitions, or is it only for full drive copy? Will it restore an image to drive/partition that’s smaller than the backup source which some backup programs like Drive ImageXML won’t do?

My Avira detected it trying to load when I was trying to install an app I downloaded from their site… in fact it was Paragon’s Partition Manager, so twice as skeptical to get Disk Copy from the GAOTD site.
I never got a response back from Paragon about a discount code that we could enter at their own site for this giveaway… bummers:rolleyes:

According to the links it copies partitions as well as drives, but I don’t see where it says if it’ll restore to smaller partition/drive. It might be included in the “Copy with resize” under “Advanced drive copy / hard disk partitioning operations,” but it doesn’t specifically say if it does.
