Portlock Storage Manager is designed to minimize the management, setup, installation, and reconfiguration time for Linux, NetWare and Windows systems. Copy, create, clone, image, restore, and resize DOS, NetWare and NSS partitions and volumes. Image and restore Windows FAT32 and NTFS partitions; Linux Ext2 / Ext3 / ReiserFS partitions. Disaster recovery of failed servers is very fast and dramatically simplified - no booting OS required.

Note: features vary depending on the type of file system or partition - consult the history.txt file for specific limitations.

The Best Insurance Policy for NetWare is FREE!

Prior to installing your next Service Pack or NetWare upgrade, use the evaluation version of Portlock Storage Manager to image the booting DOS partition and SYS volume. If the upgrade fails, purchase a license and then restore the server exactly as it was prior to the upgrade. Portlock Storage Manager's restore command can quickly recover a server even when NetWare will not boot. Evaluation Version: The image command does not have a size limitation - only the restore command.
