 Hardware requirements

Disk Shadow will run on any Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP or NT laptop or desktop PC.

Server Hardware Requirements

If you have access to a server it need not be particularly powerful and can be running 16 or 32 bit Windows. If your server is running Windows 3.x then the nice long file names you use on your PC will appear as "squiggle" file names on the Win 3.x server shadow. It does still work OK though.

Network Protocol

Shadow has been thoroughly tested on NT, Novell, Windows for Workgroups and Windows NETBUI & TCP/IP networks. Remember though that 16 bit networks cannot support long file names. Shadow will automatically convert your long file names for you so you can happily backup to a 16 bit file server.

Alternative Backup Devices

Shadow works really well on rewritable CD/PD ROM drives. These are fast and have a large capacity. ZIP type Drives also work well. Any type of drive which can be assigned a drive letter will work.

Power Users

Power users will find that they can co-ordinate their files with the server and other users and also back up their work to a removable disk drive all at the same time!

Anti Virus

Shadow will work with any of the leading anti virus systems.
