    Hi BoarAnt,
    I've emailed Tony and quoted parts of the Wilders posts about the problems that you are experiencing as well as sending him the url of the page and if/when I receive a reply from him I will post here.
    If anything else comes to mind later, about the problem you are having, post here.

    Patrick

    Well, it is necessary for me to have these kinds of programs running on the PC's. That's why I deigned to do so many tests and I hope I can find the solution. Thanks for the answer.

    Hello Athas,

    I tried your test. And also could reproduce the corrupt file problem with different versions of Shadow Defender.
    Kept having corrupt or missing files problems when having a session with large files being copied on Shadowed volumes. Even when the folders were excluded.
    And also the phenomenon where the files are clean after a reboot.
    Problem I had was that I had some files syncing to different computers. But in a 'corrupted' shadow session it would sync and copy broken files to other drives. Or have files 'missing' and deleting it.
    I didn't know why this would happen and didn't know Shadow Defender could cause this, but fortunately saw your test on this forum after a bit of googling.
    I also suspect it has a bit of 'file overload' when it has to handle extreme large volumes of files. Almost the perfect software, only for this problem.

    A temporary solution until it is fixed which I'm trying now would be:
    Having a drive unshadowed, so it cannot corrupt, where data has to be going back and forth.
    The Windows and software temporary directories being moved to a unshadowed drive. Or there's a chance it will copy from temporary shadowed directories to unshadowed drives with chance of having broken files.

    Have you (or somebody else) also tried different solutions?

    Am I the only one who does not have any problem with SD v. 1.4.0.665 running Windows 10 x64?
    Or I am having just luck with this version?

    "A friend was about to flatten his Win7 32bit system (completely different from mine hardware-wise) in order to upgrade to Win10, and I convinced him to install Shadow Defender for a test run first."

    It would have never occurred to me to use SD in such a case, I don´t think that´s its purpose. I would have created a backup image.

    Won't work. The Win 10 upgrade does several reboots and that would cause Shadow Defender to roll back the system
