Para HDM is a disk-parttioning software, I dun see how it's related in ghost backups
I agree it's powerful software but higher-tier versions are very expensive, which is why generally I would turn to "happy" versions
Also if you're still using Ghost then stick to v15, just make sure your C drive HDD is compatible with 512n format
I'm exactly on the same boat. Minitool Partition Tool (Free version) is good enough for general disk partitioning/formatting. And Macrium Reflect Free (with the use of usb boot) is my primary system backup tool.
