11th June 2008, – Paragon Software Group (PSG), the technology leader in innovative data
security and data management solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Drive
Backup 9.0 Personal and Professional Editions. These new versions of Paragon’s award-winning
Drive Backup data and system backup software provide home PC and home office users with a
new approach to file-level backup along with a powerful system restore functionality. Now
consumers can easily create a bootable, portable rescue USB flash drive to keep handy at all
times. Two versions of the new Drive Backup 9.0 are available:
Personal, which includes file backup, entire PC backup and powerful recovery tools; and
Professional, which is targeted to more advanced users, and leverages technology from Paragon
Drive Backup Business solutions to let advanced users create a more professional personal
backup and recovery tool.

including an innovative file-level protection system that allows users to protect all files, including
emails, Outlook files, photos, music, videos, spreadsheets and other documents from damage

based and file-based backup approaches.

rest assured that, in the event of a system crash, they will always have the ability to restore their
PCs to their original, problem-free state, in one of many recovery environments. Whether on the
