ShadowProtect Desktop

Tail Log Viewer


I would like to have a built in method for ShadowProtect to view a tail of the log file (running view). I find that my go to motion when I am working on backups is to download Baretail Free ( then have to open the log file to see what is going on during a faulty job. ShadowProtect version 5 used to include this function, now in version 6, it is a static log. 


I fail to see a single StoageCraft product that would not benefit from this sort of function. ImageManager, ShadowProtect (all versions), ShadowControl, etc.

Non-SQL aware backups fail or warn


We recently had a restore fail because the program we were backing up was not MSSQL and were not aware that such databases need to be backed up differently. 

It would be beneficial for the backup to either fail or warn after detecting that the database is not using VSS Certified snapshots via MSSQL or database is not flushed out when backups occur. 

Perhaps it is part of the verification process as well/instead of?

Notification of Unprotected Volume


I could be missing the setting for this, but it would be great to have some sort of notification / status warning for volumes that are not being backed up.  This would really need to be something that we can customise to turn off warnings on drives that are explicitly not being backed up for whatever reason.

API Access into ShadowControl


It would be great if we can get API Access into the ShadowControl Appliance.  To start with this would allow me to be able to integrate into our ticketing system and dashboards, along with create our own custom reports.

Integration into AEM (Autotask Endpoint Manager)


Can you look at getting integration working with AEM.  Shadow Control would be a great place to start along with SPX.

Request SD / SDXC Support for including in source backup



On ShadowProtect v5 it's possible to backup SD Card but on ShadowProtect SPX isn't possible.

Since SD is becoming more and more used on laptops, allowing users to expand internal storage capacity, due it's affordable price and it's write/reading performance, I think it's a must StorageCraft SPX be able to backup this widely used kind of storage.

We have clients in this situation and we were forced to uninstall SPX and install the v5 version.

Thank you,

Please make virtual boot work with newer versions of Virtual Box


You are way behind now on Virtual Box versions, and having to keep an old installation of Virtual Box for ShadowProtect is a pain.


PS: If I could have some indication that anyone reads this forum, I'd be grateful.

No Search feature on FORUM is crazy


Adding a search to the forums would be beyond helpful! PLEASE

Selective File based Incremental Backup (like Paragon's)


I like ShadowProtect SPX as it does fast backups, but to conserve disk space and time, a feature to enable selective-file-based incremental backups would be great.  I also use Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 for my Windows Servers and Workstations, specifically because of this feature.

Add backup failure after every/2/3/4 errors in SPX email notification



In SPX email notofication culd be useful to have a little change ( as show in attached picture )


With Continous backup's  job set every 15 minutes , sometimes it happens that the backup fails. But the next backup is performed without any problems
