<p>SYDNEY, September 28. StorageCraft Technology Corporation (www.storagecraft.com.au), a provider of innovative disaster recovery, system migration, data protection and security solutions for servers, desktops and laptops, today announced the release of StorageCraft ShadowProtect™ 3.5, the latest update to the award-winning line of disk-based backup, disaster recovery and system migration software for Windows servers, desktops and laptops.</p>
<p>ShadowProtect 3.5 includes several new features, including the ability to backup failing hard drives – so IT administrators can salvage as much data as possible. This new feature allows you to continue a backup even if some areas of the hard drive can no longer be read.</p>
<p>“ShadowProtect 3.5 allows you to back up as many sectors on a failing hard drive as you can,” said Brandon Nordquist, vice president of product management at StorageCraft. “You may not be able to save all of the data on the drive, but you can recover as much as possible and save the data to new hardware.”</p>
<p>In addition, IT administrators can set up ShadowProtect 3.5 to notify them when a hard drive begins to fail so that they’re able to quickly take a backup and recover as much data as possible.</p>
<p>Besides the new Ignore Read Failures feature, ShadowProtect 3.5 also includes several other improvements, including the following:</p>
<p>• Enhanced e-mail notification improving client administration services;
• Improved management over backup commencement, allowing you to specify how quickly a backup begins following a system reboot;
• Improved management of Hardware Independent Restore features, allowing administrators to have greater control over hardware drivers when migrating to new, different hardware;
• Improved Boot Configuration tool.</p>
<p>ShadowProtect 3.5 also has several maintenance updates which are incorporated into all editions, including ShadowProtect Server Edition™, ShadowProtect Desktop Edition™, ShadowProtect Small Business Server Edition™, and ShadowProtect IT Edition™.</p>
<p>Pricing and Availability</p>
<p>ShadowProtect 3.5 is available from authorised StorageCraft distributors, managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs). Volume discounts are available.</p>

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
