ABOUT PRODUCT Completely new partitioning engine for operations of any complexity level for physical and virtual disks Easy management of several operating systems on one computer All existing backup techniques, including sector and file level backups with differential or incremental updates, as well as an exclusive file complement Any backup destination, including local mounted/un-mou… nted partitions, external storages, CD/DVD/Blu-ray discs, network shares, SFTP/FTP servers as well as the secured hidden partition (Backup Capsule) Improved speed of backup processing by using asynchronous writing operations Fast restore at a granular level without the need to restore the whole image Automatically align partitions during partitioning or copy to optimize performance of your drive* Support for major virtual machines, including MS Virtual PC, VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion and Oracle VirtualBox 4 Any type of migration, including P2V Copy, P2V Restore, V2P, V2V, P2P, migration of Windows 7 installed on .vhd and Windows OS to SSD Work with virtual disks as if they are physical using Connect VD to enable rapid data exchange between physical and virtual disks, between virtual disks of different vendors, or between a virtual disk and its snapshots Read-only mode for virtual disks to make sure disk data will not be altered during copy or other operations Comprehensive recovery environments based on DOS, Linux and WinPE** are available on CD/DVD/Blu-ray, thumb drive or Backup Capsule to get systems back on track quickly when they fail to boot. They also retrieve valuable information from damaged hard disks and accomplish bare-metal system deployment Fixes most system boot problems without restore, including Windows system registry modification in the off-line mode, MBR and the Boot.ini file correction, and more Use 27 defragmentation strategies to defragment FAT and NTFS file systems and MFT via built-in Total Defrag Ten wipe algorithms to destroy all on-disk information or only remnants of deleted files / directories without affecting the used data Support for the latest hardware: SSD, AFD, 2.2TB+ and non-512B sector size disks, as well as USB 3.0 devices Disaster recovery infrastructure for Apple Boot Camp configurations TECHNICAL DATA Supported Operating Systems Windows 8 (32/64-bit) Windows 7 (32/64-bit) Windows Vista (32/64-bit) Windows XP Professional (32/64-bit) Windows XP Home Supported Virtual Machines Oracle VirtualBox Microsoft Virtual PC VMware Workstation VMware Fusion Additionally for Connect VD and P2V Adjust OS only MS Windows backups (.vhd images) Additionally for Connect VD only Parallels Workstation XenServer (.vhd only) Supported Computer Bus Interfaces Parallel ATA (Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment) SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) External SATA (eSATA) SCSI iSCSI USB (Universal Serial Bus) 1.x/2.0/3.0 IEEE 1394 (FireWire) All types of RAIDs (hardware and software) PC or PCMCIA Card (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) Supported Storages 2.2TB+ hard disk drives AFD (Advanced Format Drive) Non-512B sector size drives SSD (Solid State Drive) HDD CD-R/RW DVD-R/RW DVD+R/RW DVD+/-R (DL) BD-R BD-RE Supported File Systems* NTFS (v1.2, v3.0, v3.1) FAT16 FAT32 Linux Ext2FS Linux Ext3FS Linux Ext4FS Linux Swap Apple HFS+ Other file systems (in the sector-by-sector mode) *Encrypted volumes are not supported.
