NTI Shadow v3 released
NewTech today announced the availability of Version 3 of its backup application: NTI Shadow v3 maintains a real-time, continuous backup of all changed files and includes an advanced scheduler module. It now adds support for optical media (including Blu-ray) as well as USB flash, mobile storage devices (micro drives), internal and external hard drives, NAS devices, and more. In addition to conveniently executing backup jobs transparently in the background, Shadow does not take up valuable PC resources that could slow system performance, according to the company. Version 3 includes custom file filtering for specific file types (audio, picture, video, and document), enabling users to further customize their backups. Users can also 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.
For added security, NTI Shadow is equipped with NTI Intelligent USB Device Detection so that jobs configured to backup to a specific, removable storage device can only be executed when that unique device is detected on the system.
NTI Shadow v3 is US $30 (electronic) or $40 (CD) and requires Mac OS X 10.1.5 or later.
