Im in need of a ShadowProtect bootable recovery enviroment CD , for v4.x


I havnt had any luck on the Storagecraft website , s/n doesnt work to get download access , possibly because v4 is end of life ?


Would anyone be able to upload an ISO somewhere . Not the full product, just recovery Cd

I've got access to build a new Recovery Environment from the REBuilder tool that StorageCraft provide, however, I'm not sure if this will work for 4.x images? I do know previous versions of the recovery environment have been backwards compatible. 


I am happy to upload the ISO for it for you to test?

Ive managed to find a download for the recovery builder on another site , Ive created a CD & are about to try that


Im not sure it will work with the old v4 backups though . Only 1 way to find out

OK, Ive got a bootable recovery CD, and can see the backups.


I cant get the HP B110i raid drivers to work though , so cant see the HD's


If I boot up from the SP recovery CD, I can add the drv , but it wont detect the raid drives
If I add the drv's when making the SP recovery CD, on boot I get errors


The raid drivers do work in Win/server recovery mode when I add the driver option, just not in SP


Any ideas ?
I may have to recover to another machine , then image that restore with another program and use that other program to recover to server (god please no)

Have you tried both 32bit and 64bit raid drivers in SP?


Most likely will need to be 32bit drivers for SP v4.

Try using the Linux recovery environment - I had some issue with an older Acer raid card and the CrossPlatform RE worked a treat

clinty: Try using the Linux recovery environment -


Thanks for that . Linux Recovery CD works & detects RAID drives


The only good thing out of this is its given the management a scare & they'll be upgrading their
old 2008 server .
