Paragon Drive to Rescue Stranded Win XP Users

Support for Windows XP is ending, but many who have been using this OS for the last 13 years are still wedded to it and don’t really want to say goodbye. However, to keep themselves safe from malware, they need to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8. For all such users that are reluctant to part ways, Paragon Software Group (PSG) is offering an opportunity for users to have their cake and eat it too.

Announcing the availability of Paragon Drive Copy 14 Professional, Windows 8.1-compatible tool, PSG is allowing users as to keep Windows XP system in a virtual environment and to assist in delivering a smooth transition to new operating systems. Moving to a virtual environment is typically fraught with difficulties, but Paragon Drive Copy 14 makes it a no-hassle task.

This software will allow users to connect the XP virtual disk to the upgraded version of Windows and transfer necessary files without launching the XP virtual machine.  It will automatically transfer the operating system, programs, files and personal settings without losing any data. It reportedly supports all major virtualization formats and offers support to virtual machines from major virtualization vendors.

Virtualization solves so many problems and Paragon Drive Copy 14 Professional is an easy way to switch to the new OS and still continue to use legacy Windows XP in a secure manner.

However, moving the system to a virtual environment is not an easy task and users could well be denied virtual machine network access. And, even when the new OS is installed, certain apps might just act cranky. The new Paragon Drive software takes care of everything.

Those who intend making the change using Paragon Drive Copy 14 Professional can get it at a discounted rate from April 3-11.

So, although it’s goodbye for Windows XP as a main operating system, Paragon Drive gives users a chance to still stay close by using it virtually, so don’t miss out on this opportunity.
