DRAPER, Utah, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new tool is now available to IT professionals in their quest to successfully protect valuable business systems and data. StorageCraft Technology Corporation today released StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® IT Edition PRO, which provides IT professionals unlimited disaster recovery, data protection and system migration for Windows systems in their environment, without installing any software.


Among the features that make ShadowProtect IT Edition PRO unique is the inclusion of the award-winning StorageCraft ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange, allowing fast recovery of email messages and entire mailboxes from Exchange Database (EDB) files. This feature also allows searches based on user-specified criteria.

"IT Edition has been used by our partners for years as a quick, efficient solution for creating hot server backups, performing migrations to new hardware or moving physical systems to virtual platforms," said Matt Urmston, StorageCraft's chief evangelist and director of product management. "The merging of these two great products, ShadowProtect IT Edition and StorageCraft Granular Recovery for Exchange, makes ShadowProtect IT Edition PRO a must have utility for the Systems Integrator, MSP or VAR."

Another beneficial aspect of ShadowProtect IT Edition PRO is the Disk Copy feature that allows administrators to make an exact duplicate of a disk. This feature can capture everything on a volume or disk without the need for a backup image file.

The benefits of ShadowProtect IT Edition PRO include:

  • Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 and Microsoft Exchange support.
  • Rapid file and folder recovery.
  • Granular recovery of mailboxes and email messages from Exchange EDB files.
  • Bare metal recovery of Windows servers, desktops and laptops in minutes.
  • The ability to restore backup images to or from physical and virtual machines.
  • Migration to new systems (physical or virtual) with StorageCraft Hardware Independent Restore™ (HIR) technology.
  • The ability to search mailboxes, email messages or entire Exchange databases for specific keywords.
  • Unlimited use during the subscription period.

ShadowProtect IT Edition PRO is available through StorageCraft distribution partners SYNNEX Corporation and Lifeboat Distribution. More information about ShadowProtect IT Edition PRO is available at
