Protect and back-up important data files.

Overview

NTI Shadow continues on the award-winning easy-to-use backup application that automatically protects your photo, music, video, and various data files. It makes data restoring as easy as dragging and dropping files from one place to another.

Real-time and continuous data backup plus you can set Shadow 4 to save versions of your files/folders every time they change. You can also specify your backup schedule by the minute, hour, day, week and start time(s) and choose a specific or even a customized file type with Shadow 4 advanced file filtering.

Shadow 4 delivers the ability to automatically copy files from multiple Macs to various devices in real time and also preserves the files in their native format - meaning no additional software is necessary to restore files. Shadow 4 works transparently in the background silently keeping your files protected.

Odd, I've used NTI Shadow for a while, and it's at version 4.x, not 2.x...

While the feature that this will continuously monitor for changes, and update your backed-up or synced folders/volumes continuously, would be great, this is way too buggy to recommend. Published reviews of this app are fairly positive, but I couldn't find any real "user" reviews. I decided to give it a test run. This is for NTI Shadow 5.0.0.39, on 10.6.5, Intel Mac. I tried creating both "backup" and "sync" jobs, both with "Continuous" mode turned on, using my 2GB Desktop folder as the guinea pig. The backup job: - initial backup went OK - but, when I added 3 2MB .avi files to the source folder, their copy never completed. I got "ghost"/grayed out, zero size copies in the target folder. Attempts to delete these showed that they were "in use". Restarting NTI shadow didn't fix this. - deleting files from the source didn't delete the corresponding files in the target. this might be the desired behavior in some cases, but not in others, and there is no option to choose. I then tried creating a "sync" job using the same folders: - changes to one folder at first were reflected in the other, but very quickly this stopped, and no further changes were propagated. I.e. doesn't work as advertised for me. Furthermore: - very limited documentation - limited control of options - keeps complaining that the target volume is has less than 50% free (this is plenty of space for the backup jobs set, and there's no way to set the percentage or turn this off). - very limited logging - keeps complaining about a name conflict on the hidden file .xprtbtreecache5a - uses more CPU than I would expect for very minor changes (not bad, though) I didn't bother trying a Volume Clone - would take way too long, and there's no way I would trust the results. Summary - while this has the potential to be a groundbreaking backup app, it seems that they haven't done much testing. A backup app needs to be reliable, and behave as expected. I can't recommend this to anyone. I'll stick with Carbon Copy Cloner and Time Machine for now.
