NewTech Infosystems Inc. (NTI) on Tuesday announced the release of
NTI Shadow 2.0, a new version of their cross-platform backup software for Mac OS X and Windows. It costs US$29.99, although a special promotion on the Web site — “Shadow for the Price of a Song” banner ads — will let you download the software for $0.99 instead.
NTI Shadow is a continuous and real-time backup application. It works in the background, and constantly backs up data every time you make a change. It can be used to synchronize digital content on all internal and external, local and network hard drives, USB drives and more.
You can select the interval for backup, the source and target, and file filtering targets so you can select files for backup by category. You can also specify how many revisions of each file you’d like to save, from 1 to 10.
Shadow 2.0 features “smart USB device detection” that automatically backs up content to a removable storage device when it’s connected, as well as a job summary tool that lets you verify backup jobs before they start.
