Cross Platform 2.2.2 ISO too big for CD?

Is it just me or is the cross platform v2.2.2 ISO 6MB too big to fit on an 80 minute CD-R?

Unable to burn ISO using the Recovery Environment Builder 1.1.5.

I successfully built the WINPE recovery environment ISO but was unbanle to burn the file to a DVD. I received the error message in the attached file. I was able to burn the .iso file using the built in WIN 7 capability. I'm running WIN7 32bit Home Premium.

SPRE Restore from Windows 8 Storage Space


SPRE v5 does not appear to support restore from an image repository on a Windows 8 Storage Space (ReFS). Since Storage Spaces is one of the cardinal new features of Windows 8 and Server 2012, this is a serious deficiency. I would have thought this support would have been available in v5 at its release. Please implement this capability as soon as possible.

Recovery Environment Vulnerable to Internet Hackers?

Paranoid Question:  During a full backup from the Vista (Recommended) Recovery Environment, booted from CD version 3.5 WITHOUT loading network support, I forgot to disconnect the Ethernet cable from my ISP over last night.  (The computer stayed in the backup screen of the recovery Environment all night, and of course I wasn't logged in to my own OS.)  Naturally BOTH my entire machine AND my local (not NAS) backup drive (containing ALL of my vital system backups!) were connected.  Am I safe from Internet attacks without the network support, or is it possible for a hac

Intel RST (AHCI, IAStor) and Renasas (NEC) USB 3 Superspeed drivers

The ShadowProtect v4.1 Recovery Environment does not include the very latest versions of these drivers:

  • Intel RST drivers (AHCI/IAStor)
  • Renasas (NEC) USB 3.0 Superspeed drivers

If you want to load these drivers quickly, you can run this batch file from a USB Flash Drive.

The Intel RST drivers will help with performance and stutter problems with AHCI/RAID, SSD, and Advanced Format drives.

The USB 3.0 drive should help improve throughput when using USB 3.0 drives.

Recovery Environment

When booting into version of the ShadowProtect Desktop Recovery Environment, I noticed that the first option is to “start Vista-based recovery environment.”  With the previous release of the Recovery Environment, that startup option employed Windows 7 rather than Windows Vista.

Why did StorageCraft revert to Windows Vista for the recovery environment?

Thank you.

Advanced restore options

Hello everyone,

I've got 2 IBM 80p Ultra3 SCSI drive 10K RPM "Hot Plug", one of 18.2 GB and the second one of 36.4 GB. I've made a complete backup (one system volume and one data volume) of the first one to restore it on the second drive. I'll consider resinzing up the 2 volumes when I'm sure the recovery is OK.

When I restored the first volume on the second drive, I selected these options :

Create exact primary partition at the beginning of free space, then :


- Set Active

Problems with recovery environment after activating SP

Hello. I've been trialling SP desktop for a month now. I requested a full evaluation because I wanted to try the recovery environment. I've been making and validating backups with no problems from the recovery environment.

Today I bought and activated SP. I made a differential backup from the recovery environment but, to my surprise, verification failed. I then made a full backup and verification also failed.

single to multi-processor migrations

Hi all,

Can anyone shed some light on single to multi-processor migprations using Server Ed.?  I have a vmware guest, a single processor MS Win2003 Terminal Server, which is suffering from CPU overuse.  I'd like to migrate this guest to a 2-processor guest.  I was hoping to do this using ShadowProtect Server Ed. HIR.

 Anyone had a similar experience, or care to add comments/advice.

Much appreciated,
