I'm using Paragon Backup & Recovery Free 10.1. I recently bought a new hard drive to replace my boot drive. I created an image with PB&R, put the new drive in, booted with the PB&R boot media and restored to the new drive. It worked perfectly.
To feel confident about your own setup I would make a couple of backup/images and confirm that they complete properly. I would also create and boot the CD/DVD media to confirm it can find the backup files. On my system the Paragon boot disk didn't support my usb ports so it couldn't find my external hard drive (I solved the problem by putting the hard drive with the backup image into the case). If you have an extra hard drive you could do an actual restore and confirm it boots.
Hope this helps.
