            Technical notes

            Limited Support:

            StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® supports backup of Windows 2000 environments. However, lack of hardware support and suitable device drivers may make recovery difficult. If you use Windows 2000, make sure you have appropriate hardware and drivers you can use as your recovery target should a disaster happen. (Note: StorageCraft VirtualBoot technology does not support Windows 2000; additionally, Windows 2000 doesn’t have a VSS framework or support, so VSS backups are not available in Windows 2000.)


            For specific Windows Server 2008 Foundation and R2 Foundation licensing information, please contact your sales representative.

            Virtual licenses: ShadowProtect should not be installed directly into the host of a Type 1 hypervisor. The recommended configuration is to back up the guest operating system within each virtual machine.


            System admin tools: ShadowProtect IT Edition and ShadowProtect IT Edition PRO support all the same operating systems that the above ShadowProtect license types support.
