I'm trialing the full evaluation of ShadowProtect at this moment. It might be faster than ATI, but not as comfortable as ATI. After zeroing my 2 harddisks, I tried to restore my system and data image, the same way as I did with ATI, but I couldn't restore any image, unless I created a partition for both harddisks. It took me awhile to figure that out, because I wasn't used to this. I don't have to do this with ATI, ATI only asks the source and destination and starts to recover. I wonder how much a total newbie would like this. Of course all the partition letters were wrong or gone, but I'm used to this because ATI has the same problem. The backup is a LITTLE more convenient and faster than ATI, but the restore is something else. All images were restored PROPERLY and even the partition letters were CORRECT. I wonder how SP got these partition letters right. The problem is that I didn't really see that my system image was written to [C:] and my data image was written to [D:] or I missed it. Also the loading time of the Recovery CD lasts much longer than ATI and has too many waiting screens and they are confusing : scrolling bars, waiting messages, blank frozen colored screens without any processing info, ... until I finally got a real menu, which was a big relief. So not everything is glamor and glitter about ShadowProtect.
