    Paragon Backup & Recovery 10 Free Edition is a free image type backup and restore program, that like many other similar Paragon programs comes with an Allegro Linux boot ISO that never works on my PC, due to a supposed lack of video memory (it wants a 512 KB frame buffer, and I can't convince it that my Intel® 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV video controller has more than that at its disposal).

    Is there going to be a UBCD4Win plugin for this program?

    (Unlike other Paragon programs that are offered via Giveaway of the Day, this one is always free.)

    It seems compararable, or maybe better than DriveImage XML.

      Plugin for Paragon Backup and Recovery 10 Free Edition

      Create a DBR10 folder under Plugins\Commercial then create a files folder under this. Copy all of the files from your C:\Program Files\Paragon Software\Backup and Recovery 10 Free Edition\ folder apart from the iso folder to the files folder. Put dbr10.inf and DBR10_nu2menu.xml in the DBR10 folder and DBR10.cmd in the files folder. Rebuild UBCD4Win and you should now have Backup & Recovery under the Disk Tools/Backup and Cloning menu.

      DBR10.cmd
      reg delete hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\minint /f
      start /wait \Programs\DBR10\Program\launcher.exe
      reg add hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\MiniNT /ve
      exit

        Trying the steps above gets the Paragon program onto the UBCD4Win disc.
        But, the program did not show up in the UBCD4Win menu.
        And navigating to X:\PROGRAMS\DBR10\program\launcher.exe with My Computer and clicking it got the error message:
        "This application has filed to start because qtp-mt334.dll was not found."
        That file exists my real SYSTEM32 folder, but not the one on UBCD4Win.

        What more needs to be done to get this to work?

          Copying the missing qtp-mt334.dll file, which seems to be used by all the Paragon backup programs, to the UBCD4Win SYSTEM32 folder, and rebuilding the CD, then runnig launcher.exe via "Run" got the CD ejected and the system locked up.

            Sorry, my mistake. You also need to copy prgiso.dll and qtp-mt334.dll from your Windows System32 folder to files\program (same directory as launcher.exe). This should fix any issues.

              You also need to use the DBR10.cmd that was posted to launch the program and not launcher.exe. That or you can delete the reg key manually but be sure to re-add it since some programs detect PE this way.

              Cheers

                But why doesn't the program appear in the menu?

                Trying to open the DBR10_nu2menu.xml file in Microsoft's XML Notepad gets the error message: 'CMD' is an unxpected token. Expecting white space. Line 10, position 110."

                Is the file provided above correction, or might there be something wrong with my copy and paster operation?

                  Hi, try creating the files using Notepad they should be just plain text files, maybe MS XML Notepad is changing the files in some way. Also if the entry isn't appearing in the UBCD4Win menu it sounds like DBR10.cmd isn't in the right place, it needs to be in the root of the files folder (only other file there should be layout.ini).
