    Hello

    I have been eyeing Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac for some time. The software looks very powerful and offers things that have not been easy to achieve on Macs for a long time, these have been available in Windows for ages. Easy manipulation, undeleting and resizing of partitions including and not limited to Bootcamp ones, sector level snapshot incremental backup with compression and many other nice features.

    Here is the link to the official page: http://www.paragon-software.com/home/hdm-mac/how_it_works.html

    Here is a review: http://www.appleworld.today/blog/20...manager-is-what-apples-disk-utility-should-be

    As the product is very new there is not so much material with reviews.

    I have used Paragon NTFS for Mac on several systems for several years and the software and support have been solid. Their products on Windows are also excellent.

    Is there anybody here that has used it and what are your impressions?

    Disk Utility manages partitions well. Time Machine backups your Mac well too.

    DU partition management is very limited. It can not be compared with an advanced partition management program like the ones that have been offered for PC users through the ages. Paragon offer is the first of such programs that I have seen for Macs.
    I use Time Machine and until now it has served me well, but having worked at an enterprise level with programs that use shadow copy services to take live disk snapshots in Windows, like Storagecraft's Shadow Protect, you learn to appreciate the benefits of the technology.
    Apple includes good tools that are good enough for most tasks, but some advanced tasks require advanced tools, and I am glad to see more of these advanced tools come the Mac.

    Thanks for the link. I've been recommending Paragon NTFS and other Paragon apps for years. I'm impressed with what Paragon Hard Disk Manager can do and the price. Compared with iPartition ($49.95 for a single license) it does much more and for $10.00 less.

    A big thank you for that link "Enzedder". I just purchased the 7 app bundle including the new Paragon Hard Disk Manager for $16.99 and several other apps that I needed. :D

    Nice one! Thanks. I bought the bundle. Several apps I was not needing but with that price they are a super gift. I have installed just 2 of the 7 I choosed: Paragon Hard Disk Manager and NetSpot Pro.
