Disaster recovery software allows backup of failing hard drives
StorageCraft announced the release of version 3.5 of StorageCraft ShadowProtect, a disk-based backup, disaster recovery and system migration software for Windows servers, desktops and laptops.
This new version includes several new features, including the ability to backup failing hard drives, that allows you to continue a backup even if some areas of the hard drive can no longer be read. In addition, IT administrators can set up ShadowProtect to notify them when a hard drive begins to fail so that they’re able to quickly take a backup and recover as much data as possible.
ShadowProtect 3.5 includes other improvements, such as:
- Enhanced e-mail notification improving client administration services
- Improved management over backup commencement, allowing you to specify how quickly a backup begins following a system reboot
- Improved management of Hardware Independent Restore features, allowing administrators to have greater control over hardware drivers when migrating to new, different hardware
- Improved Boot Configuration tool.
