"It is an excellent product. It is easy to deploy, stable, and fast. Their support is excellent."
"The most valuable feature of StorageCraft ShadowProtect is the speed and the compression of the backups. The compressed backed-up files do not take up as much storage. Additionally, the incremental backups can be done in one minute and be backed up on a disc very fast."
"The ability to switch between different hardware platforms and utilization tools are some of this solution's most valuable features."
"The most valuable features are that it is able to restore quickly and that it is able to virtually restore on Hyper-V."
"This product is extremely user-friendly and it is capable of performing large-scale archive/backup (five+ years worth). It is easy to store, maintain, and check backups."
"Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't."
"StorageCraft ShadowProtect can improve by making one console that can control backups of all desktops and servers in one place. Additionally, the recovery process of the backups is very slow and could improve. It's very slow when we went to recover a complete disc but to recover one file is very fast."
"A lot of their new technologies are not very good."
"Licensing is an area that needs improvement."
"I think that the price could still be a bit cheaper and I do not like that they have been purchased by Arcserve."
