Overview and History
In one of our recent articles we have explored the benefits of Light Virtualization (LV). This is a unique software technology that sandboxes whole disks/partitions, protecting their contents against unwanted changes.
Shadow Defender (or SD for short as it is known among its dedicated fans) has been enjoying a great reputation among Light Virtualization fans during the last few years. There has been a barren period of two and a half years where development was interrupted, leaving v126.96.36.1995 (which was released back in February 2010) as the last known good version.
Amazingly this version is still doing its job perfectly three years later, keeping pretty much everything at bay. It is basically a three year old piece of code that is still able to fully isolate and contain malicious code which is much newer than itself. This unique feature is what has cemented the Shadow Defender reputation among its dedicated fans.
The SD project was put back on track a few months ago with the developer coming back and picking it up once again. Tony (as he is known among SD fans) is the author and owner of Shadow Defender. We don't know what real life issues may have forced Tony to abandon the project for two and a half years. What is important is that the break is now over. In the last five months the program has evolved and important new features have been added. The latest version of SD includes full SSD/TRIM compatibility, introduces Windows 8 support, and also includes write cache encryption plus a configurable RAM Cache option.
