(Freiburg, Germany--October 24, 2016) Paragon Software Group
(PSG), the leader in data backup, disaster recovery and data migration solutions, announces Paragon Migrate OS 5.0
, a one-step tool to help with Windows systems migration to new storage devices – solid-state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs). Paragon Migrate OS 5.0 instantly performs fast and safe Windows migrations and even downsizes to smaller capacity drives, thanks to advanced data exclusion capabilities. You can transfer a live system with no impact to your work, and have your partitions automatically aligned in the process, if needed. The new release fully supports Windows 10 and comes with an even more intuitive UI providing easy access to the software's step-by-step migration wizard.
According to data analysis by Statista
, SSD shipments in the last few years have increased drastically – from 39 million units in 2012 to the estimated 189.6 million in 2017. As PC users seek to take advantage of SSDs’ better access time, read/write speeds, and resistance to physical shock from drops, the challenge becomes moving massive amounts of data, applications and the operating system from the existing hard drive to a smaller SSD. Paragon Migrate OS is a handy tool that transfers any Windows version since XP to any capacity storage disk in a single operation.
Paragon’s intuitive wizard in Migrate OS simplifies the migration process, automatically downsizing the source system volume and providing intelligent selection of specific files when migrating to smaller-capacity drives, and auto-aligning copied system partitions – all without rebooting the system.
