    "works great until it doesn't"

    Version: ShadowProtect Desktop Edition 4.2.7


    Very good at building a nice archive that can be easily browsed from the machine that wrote it.


    I've needed this software twice and both times it failed. The images wouldn't mount or the software wouldn't recognize the external drive. The online help did not cover either problem to the point that it could be solved. Storage craft only supports the program for 1 year. So by the time you need it there is no support unless you pay $50 per incident.

    Currently I have 4 years of archives that can only be read from the machine they were written from. If I download the current software to a new machine it will not mount those images. I'm somewhat confident that it can be made to work is the support fee is paid.


    The program seems very sensitive to the machine, version, and operating system and restoring from scratch is less than smooth. Plan on paying for the $50 per incident support or choose another product.
