Giveaway of the Day is giving away the much popular Partition Manager 10.0 Personal software from Paragon completely for free for about 3 more hours. The original software costs $39.95 and just for today, it is being given away for free, thanks to LifeHacker’s post.
Partition Manager 10.0 Personal has full support for Windows 7 and Windows Vista (including the 64-bit versions) and support for the latest Linux kernel and GPT-formatted hard disks used in Windows 7, Vista, Mac OSX and some Linux distros.
With advanced features such as restoration of data from bare metal state, restoring partitions with resizes and a PowerShield technology that lets you resume partitioning and other services even after a power failure, this is a software built for those who will be working under precarious conditions.
The site itself tells you of the number of places where your data can be backed up:
Back up data and system to an archive, a local drive, an external USB/Firewire drive, CDs, DVDs or network share.
However, do note that this version does not come with free technical support or free updates to higher versions. It is also strictly for non-commercial use.
So what are you waiting for? Download the giveaway within the next three hours and start backing up and segregating your data so that you can experiment with OSs! If you ask me, this is the best way to start loving Linux (keep rotating distros every week!)
