StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® IT Edition™Source: StorageCraft Technology Corporation
StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® IT Edition™ is the tool of choice for many IT professionals and consultants. ShadowProtect backs up everything on your Windows system - operating system, settings and data - and saves it to an external storage device. You can then restore a single file or the entire backup to the same hardware or a brand new machine. Plus ShadowProtect® IT Edition™ can do all of that without the need to install any software on your system.
This means you can have peace of mind knowing that you have a way to restore your systems if something goes wrong. It's like an insurance policy for your servers, desktops and laptops.
Backup with No Limits!
ShadowProtect® IT Edition™ is also unique because there are no limits on the number of systems you can backup and restore. Licensing is for a specific time period, based on your needs:
- Two weeks: Ideal for a single project use
- One Month: Great for short term projects
- Three months: For tackling mid-level projects with a defined ending
- Annual subscription: Perfect for the full-time IT professional

When is it best to use StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® IT Edition™ vs. ShadowProtect® Server™ or ShadowProtect® Desktop™?
ShadowProtect® IT Edition™ is perfect for taking quick backups when you're planning to make system changes and want that extra level of insurance a reliable backup provides, such as before a big migration project or when adding new software. If you want "set it and forget it" system protection, where you can schedule backups throughout the day, you'll want to use ShadowProtect® Server™ or ShadowProtect® Desktop™.
