A powerful, intelligent platform with built-in awareness of ShadowProtect® backups

Storage Craft


ShadowProtect® is a standalone software product by StorageCraft® which allows bare metal backup and hardware independent restores of entire volumes and systems. The Probax system acts as a Replication Target and integrates using ImageManager®.

Even if you replicate ShadowProtect® backups to our own servers, using ShadowProtect® with Probax is a more advanced, secure and elegant system that’s valuable to both MSPs and end users.

Probax's Scout for StorageCraft agent ensures that your backups stay healthy and any issues are automatically fixed – without you lifting a finger!


How Probax works with ShadowProtect®


Probax serves as the off-site replication target for your ShadowProtect® backups. You can seed your base images to the Probax servers on an external drive, free of charge, and access cloud-side ImageManager® controls to take care of your own retention and consolidation settings.

You can even select your preferred backup storage location (Perth, Melbourne, Sydney  or the US) whilst setting up your client accounts.



Probax will alert you to the vital statistics of all your clients’ backups and even advise how to fix any errors or warnings that the backup generated
