Hello, so basically I’ve been using the France datacenter but now that it’s aviable in Spain, I’d like to switch to that one without losing any data. Is it posible?

I might be wrong, but I don’t think its possible to migrate your data from France to Spain. My guess is that you’d probably have to back up your data either on your local device or a cloud drive, cancel your Shadow in France, and create a new one in Spain. The new Shadow in Spain would need to have all your software reinstalled, and then you could restore data from your backup to the new machine.

If your primary concern is things like settings and data specific to programs that are typically stored in the Documents folder, you simply back that data up and then copy it over to the new machine’s Documents folder after you reinstall all your programs. That make a great stride to getting you back up and running as normal.

When my machine was migrated to one of the new servers they opened in my area, I had to reset my virtual machine and I backed up my data on my cloud drive as described above. I have a 2TB pCloud Drive, which I not only use as a backup, but I also use to save space on my Shadow’s storage by keeping certain things (like documents, pictures, music, videos) on the pCloud drive, and just create a shortcut to those things on my Shadow desktop.
