    "The last backup product you'll ever need to buy."

    January 25, 2010  |   By rchurch3453

    Version: ShadowProtect Desktop Edition 3.4

    Pros

    Provides as much or as little backup as you desire - from a folder or two to your complete hard drive. Internal, external - it handles it all. The only product I know that can perform bare metal restores to a new machine without errors.

    Cons

    It uses a lot of resources when running but as long as it is set to run during periods of no other activity, it isn't really an issue.

    "Does a good job and meets its specs"

    December 30, 2009  |   By Bill Buckley

    Version: ShadowProtect Desktop Edition 3.4

    Pros

    Provides sufficient options to give the user control over what and when to backup

    Cons

    Interfacing with networked storage could be accompished easier; however, you can get there.

    Summary

    Bottom line the product does what it is advertised to do and does it well. I'd like to see a better approach to activation when upgrading to a new O/S or rebuilding on the same machine vs. deactivating (if you remeber) and then reactivating.

    "Does what it claims very well"

    December 7, 2009  |  

    Version: ShadowProtect Desktop Edition 3.4

    Pros

    This software will backup drives either as completely or incrementally. Backups can be scheduled to execute automatically. File backups can easily be restored at the file level from incremental or back to last complete backup.

    Cons

    Wish the would incorporate more disk utility functions such as disk to disk copy, etc, Also wish they would incorporate a method of waking a PC from sleep to perform backups and then go back to sleep.

    Summary

    This software has never failed me when in need. Restoring couldn't be simpler.

    "Saved me more than once!"

    December 5, 2009  |   By JimPratt3

    Version: ShadowProtect Desktop Edition 3.4

    Pros

    Does what it says it will do, period. Works great with my eSATA drive too. Backs up my whole system in 30 minutes, and I am a power user.

    Cons

    The initial learning curve was a bit much for me, but this was the first serious backup utility I had ever used.

    Summary

    I would buy this program again, and I recommend it to everyone that I do simple computer maintenance for. Just make sure to remember that you will need a drive (partition) of equal size or larger than the original to restore to.

    "SP 3.5 Just got Worse"

    October 12, 2009  |   By stuckindos

    Version: ShadowProtect Desktop Edition 3.4

    Pros

    Fast
    I use to be ShadowProtects #1 Fan.
    Does not bootstrap hard drive like Acronis or Paragon, which can render a healthy system useless if it fails before you can make your first backup.

    Cons

    All that speed just to fail at recovery. No esata support. No technical support. Not able to join Shadowprotect forum, even for paid users like me. No disk to disk cloning, no really.

    Summary

    It was great but every update gets buggier and buggier. Software engineers do not add drivers to the Shadowprotect recovery disc so that you will have to when you are trying to recover your system, just to make your recovery process that much more complicated and enjoyable. If you are looking for an industrial imaging and backup solution look elsewhere or you will be in a bind. This use to be the best backup software available, No More!

    Pros

    Backs up in a manner that allows a total system restore of Windows.

    Nothing comes to mind.
