What are SPF files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a SPF file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your SPF files.

What is a SPF file?

SPF files have multiple uses, and ShadowProtect Backup Image is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.

ShadowProtect Backup Image

StorageCraft ShadowProtect Backup Image files are used to store backup images of a computer's hard drive. These files are created using the StorageCraft ShadowProtect software, which is a backup and disaster recovery solution for Windows-based systems.

These files can be used to restore a computer to a previous state, including all files, settings, and installed programs. Additionally, .SPF files can be used to migrate a computer's operating system and data to a new hardware or virtual environment.

It is important to note that .SPF files are proprietary and can only be opened and used with StorageCraft ShadowProtect or compatible software. It is also recomended to verify the integrity of the backup images and test the recovery process on a regular basis.
