NTI Shadow 3 is an award-winning easy-to-use backup application that automatically protects your photo, music, video, and various data files. It makes data restoration as easy as dragging and dropping files from one place to another. For real-time, continuous data backup, set Shadow 3 to save your files/folders every time they change. You can also specify your backup schedule by the minute, hour, day, week and start time(s) and also choose a specific or even a customized file type with Shadow 3's new advanced file filtering.

Not only does Shadow 3 allow users to automatically copy files from their PCs to various devices in real time, but it also preserves the files in their native format - meaning no additional software is necessary to restore files. Shadow 3 works transparently in the background without disturbing you while you work, and does not take up important system resources.

Thanks for this Fred...I played with this a few years ago and somehow it has always been a piece of crap, highly unstable and created problems all over my system. Have you done anything with this so far.

In the past, weren't we discussing real-time software mirroring with a product by another name? Or was it Shadow? I think the issue is multilevel backups vs. real-time mirroring. Each has it merits. Don't hold me to it, but I think Shadow produces a hybrid of both.

I tend not to like anything that will suck up resources and be redundant of multi-level backups as in MS Word, which is adequate for me and most of my clients. However, I was actually thinking of implementing mirroring (and automatic multilevel backups) last couple of months that I've working on an MS Access Project.

I know nothing about problems as I have not fully tested Shadow.

Yes Fred "Mirror Folder" which actually has come out with several newer and better versions I tested. Somehow I always come back to my Argentum Backup though.
I have tested Shadow before and seem to remember a 10cent or $1 promo a few years back but it did not work over a network if I remember right and I had some other issues. I'll play with this again as it looks better this time. My problem is I access all files off a NAS drive so what I use has to be able to back up from Nas drive into each pc making every pc actually a backup machine.
