What is StorageCraft ShadowProtect for Small Business, and who should use it? StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® for Small Business is backup and disaster recovery software for users of Microsoft Windows Server Essentials and Foundation and of Windows Small Business Server. ShadowProtect for Small Business software provides small and mid-size businesses with enterprise-level backup and disaster recovery, data protection, and managed system migration. Whether you own a small or medium-size business or offer IT services to such owners, your ShadowProtect software enables you to get servers back online fast and avoid business disruption. ShadowProtect for Small Business software creates sector-level backup images of your server disk drives. A sector-level backup image is a point-in-time representation of your disk drive and therefore includes the operating system, applications, services, configuration settings, and data. Because your backup image contains everything on your server, when you need to recover its drive, you can do so in minutes rather than hours or days.
