NTI Announces Version 3 of NTI Shadow

It maintains real-time, continuous backup of all changed files. (April 05, 2006)
NewTech Infosystems, Inc. (NTI), a pioneer in advancing backup and recovery solutions, announced today the availability of Version 3 of its award-winning back up application, NTI Shadow. NTI Shadow is the industry's most convenient, always-on, data backup solution. In high demand since it was first launched in August 2005, NTI Shadow puts an end to losing valuable data, photo, video, and music files that have been modified in between scheduled backups. NTI Shadow v3 maintains real-time, continuous backup of all changed files. An advanced scheduler is included that enables users to set backup start times by minute, hour, day, week, or month.

NTI Shadow supports Windows XP, Windows 2000, Macintosh OSX v10.2.8, or higher, and U3 environments. NTI Shadow adds support for optical media though NTI's new Dragon Disc technology expanding option to include backing up to any optical media, including Blu-ray. In addition to conveniently executing backup jobs transparently in the background without disturbing the user, Shadow does not take up valuable PC resources that could slow system performance. Easy to install and use, Shadow will back up to virtually any system-attached drive including USB flash, mobile storage devices (micro drives), internal and external hard drives, NAS devices, and more.

Users can schedule multiple and concurrent backup jobs in their native file format, which means no additional proprietary software is required to restore files. Restoring is literally as easy as drag and drop.

The step-by-step wizard included with NTI Shadow simplifies setup and scheduling, making it easy to maintain real-time, continuous backup of all changed files. The Job Summary Tool enables users to verify backup job configurations before starting automated backups.

NTI Shadow v3 now includes custom file filtering for specific file types (audio, picture, video, and document) as well as custom file type filtering so users can select specific file types for backup. Then, for the ultimate in version control, users can elect to save an unlimited number of revisions, a specific number of revisions (1-10) or no revisions to ensure that backups are always kept in sync with the original file.

With its U3 smart drive support, NTI Shadow will appeal to consumers, business professionals, and students who move between PCs/Macs at work, school, home, libraries, Internet cafes, airports, or client sites. With NTI Shadow and a U3 smart drive, people on-the-go can work on any XP/2000 PC and taking NTI Shadow with them to complete their work without carrying a laptop. When a U3 smart drive is removed from any computer, all system settings, program files, and application data are removed so no personal or private information is left behind on the computer while all work is saved on the convenient U3 smart drive. The user can then transfer their updated files to their home or office system.

For added security, NTI Shadow is equipped with NTI Intelligent USB Device Detection so that jobs configured to back up to a specific, removable storage device can only be executed when that unique device is detected on the system.
