Thanks OP!

Anyone have any feedback / opinions as to whether this is even worth pursuing (given that it's free) as compared to Cobian? I'm currently using Cobian and did a quick Google to see about comparing these two, but looks like Cobian (which is always free), has much more to offer.

Certainly not intended to thread crap, so pleast take no offense OP, just thought it might be an interesting discussion. Any thoughts?

...and finally... Thanks OP!

Never used Cobian, but from it's website, it looks like a basic file copy/restore with compression with scheduling. I didn't see anything prominate about image cloning, partition management/recovery which Paragon does. Because of this Paragon also does resizing during image restore along with partition alignment (important for SSDs) and allows you to create a restore CD.

So far it's far more powerful at least on the imaging/cloning side. Next time I advise you do more research on your own or in fact outright try the free program and answer these questions for yourself.

Can I download and install next week or next month and have the license still work? Do we get a key or what??

For cloning and images, I have been happy with the free version of Macrium Reflect.

I downloaded Cobian............way too difficult for me.
This program won't install. I think it is being blocked by antivirus.
Got it installed. Be sure to activate today by reading read me file.
