Review MiniTool ShadowMaker
There are more and more programs at our disposal when it comes to backing up and keeping protected the files that we store on our computers, although not all of them are equally effective. That is why, on this occasion, we wanted to stop at one of the options that is gradually conquering users for its features, MiniTool ShadowMaker.
As we mentioned before, MiniTool ShadowMaker is an application for the Windows operating system, thanks to which we will be able to make backup copies so that there is always a backup for our relevant content. In this way, in case of hardware and software failures, we will be sure that no file will be lost.
The first thing we will find as soon as we launch this platform is an intuitive interface, which will be discussed later, which makes navigating among its tools easy even for those who do not usually use programs of this kind. The organization of its functions is another aspect to highlight since there is the main bar where all the main icons to be considered appear.
When executing the backup copies, one of the strong points this program has to offer is the possibility of selecting the files we want to save in detail and passing them to others. The exciting thing about this type of procedure is that stopping only on some contents drastically reduces the waiting time we have to wait until the task is finished.
No less relevant is the possibility of scheduling the frequency with which we want to perform each backup, considering that many of us do not have free space to launch this type of action manually. By taking advantage of this option, we will have the certainty that the backup copy of our contents will be updated once a week or once a month, protecting them against any unforeseen event.
And what kind of files can be preserved in the cloud thanks to MiniTool ShadowMaker? Fortunately, almost any of them are compatible with this service since you can store documents in general and photographs, videos, audio, and all those you want to keep safe from possible problems.
Besides that, MiniTool ShadowMaker also allows you to create a bootable USB so that if you have any problem with your operating system, you can restore it in just a few minutes, dispensing it with disks and other solutions. It is a proposal especially designed for users who usually test their computers and encounter serious operating errors from time to time.
MiniTool ShadowMaker is a program that we can try for free, but that nevertheless forces us to pay a specific cost for some of its definitive versions, which have different features in each case. Although there is some similar software that we can install for free, most have certain limitations that ultimately tarnish the user experience a bit. That is why the paid ones are so popular.
Meanwhile, this application's user interface has pleased us a lot because, as we mentioned at the beginning, it is straightforward to move between its options, always running the one that interests us at a given time. The distribution of this utility's elements is so good that even though it is not translated into other languages, we will not find significant problems using it.
Among this program's main positive features, we can mention issues such as the speed with which it can perform backups since it takes less time than most other similar programs. We also believe that it offers an above-average level of security thanks to tools such as daily, weekly, or monthly backup scheduling.
As for the aspects that have not convinced us, we can also mention many others, such as the fact that it does not make backup copies of CDP files, which is part of the specifications of other similar apps. On the other hand, those who like more advanced backups or with all kinds of personal settings may encounter problems since there are too many possibilities available.
MiniTool ShadowMaker becomes one of the best-paid alternatives in utilities to perform manual and scheduled backups on all our files or some of them in a specific way. It does not miss any of the usual features of this service, and we can also get an excellent price if we hire several licenses simultaneously for different computers.
