A new software suite designed to maintain and manage the data on your PC hard drive has been launched by Paragon.

The Hard Disk Manager 2009 Suite includes partitioning, backup, cloning, defrag, hard drive disposal, system management and system recovery tools.

All of the tools are installed in one go, which Paragon says will save you time and money.

Features include backup and restore, file backup to protect all files, including emails, photos, music, videos, and spreadsheets as well as a Paragon Adaptive Restore - which allows you to restore Windows Vista on a completely different hardware or even on a virtual machine.

There is also a professional version of the suite available. Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2009 Suite is distributed in the UK by PX Software for £29.99 and is available from Amazon, Play.com and PCW.

Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2009 Suite Professional is £69.95.
