Alternatives to Paragon Adaptive Restore ?

There was a good software - Paragon Adaptive Restore with the feature named P2P Adjust OS, to adjust the Windows OS after hardware changes.
Do you know some alternative for Paragon?

I've tried it these days and it worked fine 2 of 3 times, but with another HDD it didn't worked and got stuck at some point (see here). The HDD S.M.A.R.T. results are good, chkdsk passed ok.

And Paragon Adaptive Restore it's not supported anymore.


This is why I want to try some alternative software.



I'll try also O&O Diskimage, thanks.

If any other alternative exists, I am ready to try it as well

Which wd 1tb. Is it the WD 1tb blue?

I looked at your linked thread. Only one attached picture is working. Why is it looking for grub (grldr)?

You could probably rebuild the paragon iso using the more recent winre.wim/boot.wim image 2 from installation media which includes SP1. The program is 32 bit, so you need the 32 bit winre/boot.wim.

Another possibility is the paragon rescue kit free 14. It contains 2 linux isos . They include a more recent version of adaptive restore.

The iso files can be extracted from the rk14_free.exe with 7zip or similar

Install NT6 mbr and BOOTMGR pbr on the usb stick.

Bootice is useful for that:
