PARAGON DRIVE COPY EXPRESS
                REVIEWER’S GUIDE
PRODUCT CONCEPT

PRIMARY AUDIENCE

A large number of system migration issues are encountered during computer upgrades or hardware replacements.
The capacity of modern HDDs is growing continuously, and you can now replace a small HDD with a larger one for
a moderate price. When migrating up in size, it is a good practice to enlarge partitions proportionally.

You can copy each partition one by one and change their size manually, or you can perform the migration in one
step using special tools. If you are not copying to a small (i.e. SSD) or large (more than 2TB) drive, you can use
Paragon Drive Copy Express. It includes tools that automatically change the size of a partition to the best fit for the
new device.

Paragon Drive Copy Express is the perfect solution for the following scenarios:

        Copying Windows based environment to another hard disk
        Change volume sizes during copying

With a broad potential audience:

        Home users
        IT administrators
        Service providers
        Upgrade specialists

Key differentiators of Paragon Drive Copy Express:

        Simplicity
        Convenience
        Partitions resize capability
        Alignment awareness
        Microsoft Reserved Partition awareness
        OEM partition awareness
        Hot copy, without system restart

These qualities are important for users who need a convenient way to migrate Windows systems from a smaller
disk to a 3TB disk, but want to avoid technical complexity.
