    I am running Minitool Shadowmaker Pro 2.0. I can't seem to get scheduled backup to run. I think it is because Malwarebytes is blocking a script when it tries to run - it blocks tracking.minitool.com. (Website). I have now added this to MB exclusions - should that take care of the problem? Also, why would MB block this in the first place? Any suggestions?

    Update to post: Decided not to mess with it any longer. Reinstalled Aoemi Backupper in it's place. Thanks anyway

    Hi John, sorry for the late reply, but I think it's an error that Malwaremytes blocked the script. I have reported to the developer team, but no issue with other users. Thanks for your feedback.

    How long is the license valid for and can you update to major new releases?

    Could you please verify, is this a one year licence of updates, or is it a one year licence then the software stops working.

    Also, could you give some detail on the PXE feature, does this allow booting from a user chosen iso file.

    Best Regards

    Hi Gjbth,

    Sorry for the missing info. It is a one year license of upgrade.

    PXE is short for Preboot Execute Environment. MiniTool PXE Boot is designed to boot many computers from micro system in network. To put it simple, you can use MiniTool PXE Boot to make other client PCs boot from the same network. After booting, all client PCs are able to back up, restore or clone with tools offered in Windows PE micro system. In a word, MiniTool PXE Boot offers the best way to maintain multiple computers in LAN.

    But It only allows to users to boot from the installed file.

    You may learn more about PXE and other features on the user manual page. Thank you!

    Thank you for the explanation V3nuo, I was hoping that the PXE element could boot from user supplied iso's. Even so I have installed the pro version and it does seem a very capable product.. I will probably buy a couple of more licences and test it more thoroughly.

    Welcome, sorry for the inconvenience, such feature may be applied in the near future. If you need bulk license, the developer can offer you discount, and if you'd like to do some test and want to post on somewhere else for improving, I believe that they can offer you test license for free. Thanks a lot!

    Is anyone here using this tool on a regular basis - care to share experiences?

    I had understood MiniTool, and their Partition Wizard product for example, to have a good reputation, so was wondering ...

    Hi Paul

    I was for a while, but the lack of a CBT feature was a bit of a turn off for me. But I think it's a good product. I understand CBT is on it's way.

    Hi Brian.

    I'm testing MiniTool ShadowMaker 3.1, and it certainly gives you the option to backup the entire drive, which is always my preference.
    I guess this must have been implemented since 2.0. I never tried it back then.

    Can also boot via your Strelec WinPE UFD, if necessary?
