Paragon drive image size.

Hi All,
 I've just bought Paragon drive backup 6.0.

Quick question. How big is a drive image likely to be? Will it be 50% of the data size? 80%? I couldn't find any guidelines.

This depends entirely on the data you are making the image of. If it is going to be mainly your OS, the compression is low, if it is data like text files, it is high (between 1:5 and 1:2) . Program files will compress low (between 4:5 and 9:10). Zip files and mp3 files etc are already highly compressed and thes won't compress much more.
