Nice - they even plug into a currecy converter and convert currency at the prevailing rate. Really refreshing after still being offered about 80 cents to the US dollar for purchases in Canadian funds on some sites!

Anyway, actually dropped in here to post that this is still an active offer. I use Acronis TrueImage Echo Workstation but this looks like an affordable, and nice, alternative. I've tried other Paragon products in the past and have been very impressed.

Thanks, Curt  :Thmbsup:

PS I clicked on the link in the quote above to make sure that it doesn't contain any personal information about you (as Ashampoo offer links tend to do) and can confirm that it does not  :)

I bought this around November when they had the hard drive manager 3 seat family license on special (backup+boot manager+partitioning) and it is a well crafted package. I havent tested the backup much beyond running it then opening the image (I have a license of acronis on my main machine) but it didnt feel any worse than acronis on the basics (speed etc.)
I think its also quite good on the unix/linux side of things, but havent tested.

I actually like the partitioning tool quite a bit, it just works
