ShadowProtect SPX User Guide

StorageCraft ShadowProtect SPX is the latest sector-based backup and disaster recovery product from StorageCraft. SPX delivers major benefits for:

  • Linux users: SPX seamlessly extends the capabilities of ShadowProtect to Linux servers—both virtual and physical. SPX supports all the features on Linux that administrators and users rely on with ShadowProtect in the Windows environment. These include Mount, Verify, and VirtualBoot.
  • Windows users: SPX upgrades existing ShadowProtect 5.x users to a newly designed user interface, more flexible scheduler, and patented job timeline feature.

In particular, the SPX interface is identical in appearance and operation between Linux and Windows.

This user guide covers up to ShadowProtect SPX v6.5.1.

See the StorageCraft ShadowProtect SPX ReadMe for enhancements and known issues.
