Soft Solutions have been distributing ShadowProtect from the beginning. We are pleased to announce that StorageCraft have just released version 6 for the Windows platform, under the name ShadowProtect SPX (Windows). Following on from the Linux release of SPX a month or so back.


Many of the small and medium businesses in New Zealand rely on ShadowProtect as their business continuity tool. Reliably backing up physical and virtual Windows servers on-premise and into the cloud, and delivering a pain-free file recovery or full bare-metal restore when needed.


ShadowProtect SPX (Windows) includes:


  • The same reliable features in ShadowProtect
  • The same pricing as ShadowProtect
  • A newly-designed user interface
  • New patented job timeline feature
  • New job scheduler with flexible scheduling options
  • New StorageCraft-developed snapshot driver for Linux
  • Integrated StorageCraft VirtualBoot technology


Users with a valid product key and active maintenance, or who are using keys supplied under the MSP program, can upgrade from ShadowProtect to the new SPX at no charge. A reboot is required. For customers still on version 4, they need to upgrade to version 5 first then to SPX.


StorageCraft have also released version 3 of ShadowControl, a free monitoring and management web-based console for IT environments protected by StorageCraft ShadowProtect or StorageCraft ShadowProtect SPX backup software. ShadowControl delivers a central monitoring and reporting console for ShadowProtect or SPX operations and for StorageCraft ImageManager backup management software operations.
