Paragon Software Group, a leader in data protection and embedded cross-platform file-access technology, today announced it has expanded its longstanding collaboration with Western Digital for broader use of Paragon’s industry-leading File System Link technology by introducing File System Link to select WD® and G-Technology® branded portable and desktop drives.
Consumers are faced with growing volumes of content, as well as multiple, incompatible technologies that make management of content a daunting task. Paragon Software helps WD and G-Technology customers effortlessly preserve and share their precious memories, whether they’re using a Mac or a Windows machine.
Under the new agreement, effective immediately, Paragon File System Link drivers, Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software and HFS+ for Windows, are now being distributed to WD consumers as part of Western Digital’s WD Discovery application. The G-Technology consumers will find the Paragon HFS+ for Windows utility on select external hard drives or as a download from the G-Technology Windows support webpage. Once the consumer installs Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software or HFS+ for Windows onto their Mac or Windows PC respectively, they gain full read/write access to the NTFS formatted drives on Macs, and to HFS+ formatted drives on Windows PCs.
Paragon File System Link features powerful utilities that help maintain file system integrity and protect consumers’ stored data, while delivering high performance for playback of high definition video content (such as 8K and omnidirectional VR cameras, with no limits on file or volume size).
“Through the years, as our relationship with Western Digital has evolved, their commitment to a world-class partnership has been consistent and commendable,” said Tom Fedro, President, Paragon Software Group Corp. “We’re very proud that Western Digital has turned to Paragon once again to optimize connectivity and ensure an OS-independent user experience for their customers.”
Western Digital first engaged with Paragon Software Group in 2009 to license Paragon Software’s embedded File System Link based NTFS and HFS+ drivers. In 2016, Paragon Software’s embedded exFAT technology was selected by Western Digital across a broad range of network-attached storage (NAS) devices – as part of an expanded software license agreement. Paragon Software Group is a Microsoft preferred supplier of exFAT.
