Backup, Synchronization, and Cloning for Mac

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- NTI Corporation is proud to introduce NTI Shadow 5, the latest version of the award-winning Continuous Data Protection (CDP) software series designed for Mac users. NTI Shadow goes beyond Time Machine with features like bootable clone backups, folder synchronization, and continuous backups.

Volume Cloning - The new Volume Cloning feature allows Mac users to make an exact copy of their hard disk partition. And with a cloned boot partition, there is no need to restore anything before getting your Mac back up and running. Simply boot up from your clone and pick up where you left off.

Folder Merge - Keeping your files at home and work synchronized is now easier than ever with Shadow 5's new Folder Merge feature. If you shuttle files back and forth between home and work on a portable storage device, you need to make sure you're always working on the latest version of a file.

Continuous Data Protection (CDP) - You can accomplish a lot in an hour. With Shadow's Continuous Data Protection, you won't lose an hour's or even a minute's worth of work. Your Shadow backup always has the latest copies of your files because the backups occur as you save your changes.

New GUI - We gave Shadow a visual makeover inspired by other "Pro" applications. Backing up can look cool too! And the new Mini Status window will allow you to keep track of all your backup jobs without sacrificing precious screen real estate.
