What is a PVHD file?

Backup format used by Paragon Backup and Recovery, a Windows utility used to create backups of and restore hard drives; stores a backup of a physical or virtual machine or an individual file.

More Information

The pVHD format is efficient for handling data de-duplication, incremental chains, and data synchronization. It can be used to restore individual files, hard drives, and selected partitions from a pVHD image.

You can create a PVHD file by selecting the "Backup to Virtual Disk" or "Incremental Backup to Virtual Disk" options.

NOTE: While the program still supports the old .PBF format, the pVHD format is intended to replace it.
