Frequent Service Disruption/Maitenance
Application type (Windows) Shadow Client Version (Official) Datacenter location (Chicago) No response to my replies to my first ticket as well as my second ticket today. Graduated levels of frustration.At this point, I just want my access restored through the file explorer so I can get the files I need and close my shadow account after 5 years.I understand that the company is going through a lot of changes, but as a customer, I've had to put forth around 8-10,(a 500% increase VS the past 4 years combined) support tickets this year, my price raised, and I'm getting less and less service. I'm paying for a service, and I've outlined avenues of compromise on these issues to accommodate the amount of shifts occurring internally, but they've been disregarded.It is not on the part of the customer to accommodate your company's internal shifts, and if it does fall on the customer, it's an even less sustainable business plan than previously.I have had 2 months now at the new price, whic
Additional storage crowdfunding
Hello, Lately I've gotten more and more frustrated by the unavailability of the additional storage for Amsterdam. I have been very patient (been waiting for over a year, and never once have I seen additional storage available. I've asked support about this, but they say that I have to be patient. The problem is, that I can simply not play certain games like Ark: Survival Evolved, because it takes up more space then I have available. I understand that shadow cannot snap their fingers and create more additional storage, but I want to post a suggestion. If this is a monetary problem, I would be willing to pay a one time fee to expand the availability of the storage, to make sure that I at least can upgrade my shadow. I understand that one guy donating doesn't make a difference, but I would be willing to pay 50 euro's if I could have at least 250 gb of extra storage (and of course the 3 euros p/m that it costs for the extra storage). I'm quite sure a lot of other guys would also be willing

It's too bad that you are not going to offer a lower tier of access to keep the price at 11.99 per month
It’s unfortunate that the price is jumping up to 29.99 per month. I only used (and liked) Shadow for testing outside applications so wasn’t on here nearly as much as a solid gamer would be. If you only kept the price at 11.99 and offered X amount of hours per month. I would have stayed.
Getting to Know your Account PageF.A.Q.

My AccountThis stores all of your basic information: name, phone, etc. My ShadowUse this tab to factory reset your Shadow.

Created account nearly 2 hours ago, still in the “waiting for activation” phase. Very little faith in a company that does not honor their commitments. It should not take so long to spin up a new instance, it's not like resources are configuring manually. Preparing to cancel if this is not rectified within the next 30 minutes.
My shadow was cancelled for no reason
Please i need help, my shadow was cancelled for no reason, I didnt cancel it and I paid my last bill, this will be the LAST time i use shadow if i cant get it back. My shadow was banned at one point for a false crypto flag and i bad to redownload everything and it was awful, I really dont want to have to do that, instead i'll probably just buy myself a new pc and be done with this crap
Shadow for iPad OS unable to connect after “Waiting for Video”
I am trying to connect to my Shadow via the app for iPad OS. After waiting on loading screen with the message “Waiting for Video” for a minute or so, the app is always returning to the app home page. I have tried shutting down my Shadow, waiting for ~15 minutes, and then attempting to reconnect, only to achieve the same results. I tried troubleshooting my internet connection based on the help article here: https://help.shadow.tech/hc/en-gb/articles/360011196119, though maybe this is out of date? All of my results were above the minimum requirements. I’m not getting any error message from the app, so I have no idea what is causing the connection to fail. Any advice here short of a full Shadow factory reset would be much appreciated.
Why doesn't my preorder appear in my orders?
It's all in the title, this morning I woke up and like every day I checked my shadow account and my pre-order is no longer in my order, I just see my subscription ''pending activation'' in the ''subscription'' section. I really wonder what happening :( Problem fix.
Storage is available for purchase through your account page under the “Subscriptions & Billings” tab starting April 23rd, 2020. However, once storage on the data center has run out, you’ll no longer be able to add additional storage to your account until more is allocated or someone gives up their additional storage. When additional storage becomes available, you will be able to add/remove increments of 256GB to your Shadow via your account page, up to a total of 2 TB of additional storage. Storage is charged per month. Once your order is confirmed, you must shut down Windows and reboot it in order to activate your additional storage on Shadow. You’ll find all additional storage on the D Drive on your Shadow. We highly recommend backing up your data on any extra storage you’ve purchased just in case you end up removing the storage.
When’s my Billing Date?/How Long does my Subscription go for?F.A.Q.
You can find your subscription period in your Account Page: https://account.shadow.tech/. Shadow is a monthly recurring subscription so each payment will be due on the same day each month. Your subscription also won’t start until your Shadow has been activated so you won’t be losing any paid billing time. For example, if you purchased Shadow on April 21st, 2020, and your subscription wasn’t activated until May 2nd, 2020, your subscription will go from May 2nd until June 2nd and you won’t be charged until June 2nd. If you’re on a monthly subscription, you will also have the ability to cancel your subscription through your “Subscriptions & Billings” tab. Once you initiate the cancellation request, your subscription will be cancelled before your next invoice is set to be sent out. You will get to use Shadow for the paid amount of time. For example, if your subscription is for May 2nd to June 2nd and you cancel your subscription on May 21st, you will be able to use your Shadow
What Is “Account Activation” and How Does It Work?F.A.Q.
Activation is the process your Shadow goes through in order for you to access it. This includes assigning a GPU, CPU, storage drives, etc. for your Shadow. Activation times: What you should knowActivation times are based on current wait times and availability of resources. Wait times can increase due to resources becoming available at a slower rate. During a delay, activation times depend on available components, employee resources, data center capacity, and how many other Shadow users are waiting that ordered before you. As all these variables change on a day-to-day basis, we do our best to project the most accurate time for activation wait time.Getting ready to use your Shadow Once your Shadow is ready for use, you’ll receive an email confirmation. In the meantime, you can sign in to your account page and download Shadow onto your devices before it’s ready for use. This way, you’ll be able to quickly set up your Shadow once it’s been activated. Tracking your Shadow’s activation progr
Ordered October 2021, Activation shows September 2021
Hi everyone, I purchased a month of Shadow Boost last night and it’s showing that my activation time is September 30th. I’m wondering if this is an error I should be concerned with, or if I should cancel and re-order. Has anyone run into this error with the dates before?
Don't Hold Your Breath
There are many would-be Shadow users who have gotten their activation dates moved back to December 31st 2021. I just wanted to tell the people who have their activation dates the same to not expect Shadow to deliver on time and consider a refund. I don’t think that Shadow will be able to deliver on Dec 31st because:It’s a seemingly arbitrary date that MANY subscriptions were pushed back to There is no way Shadow is going to be able to handle the amount of people that are all supposed to get activated on the exact same dayIt just seems like Shadow panicked and pushed a bunch of subs back, so don’t expect them to deliver on time. I’m expecting that the majority of the subs listed as Dec. 31st will pushed back even more. Personally, if the date gets moved back further, I’m just going to get a refund.
