My Shadow Boost SSD drive got replaced with SATA drives. (harddrives.)
EDIT: I should have put “HDD Drives” in the thread title instead of SATA, sorry for the confusion this may cause. Greetings, I didn’t know where to bring this topic to, or if anyone had run into this issue yet, but, for long-time users of Shadow, the general idea and selling point was that our Shadow’s had a main 265gb SSD for our C drive, while additional drives would be HDD harddrives. I get there is a transition still occurring for other customers to get them all on the new Datacenters, but is the absence of the SSD drives a temporary thing? Ever since they moved me out of the old New York datacenter to the new Datacenter, I've noticed a considerable drop in load times on the main C drive, which is what lead me to looking into this. Again, is this the new norm for Shadow? Is this an accident and unintentional?
Shadow on 10 inch tablet (playable; screen wise?)
Hello community … so far I am using shadow on a desktop PC and my notebook - works great. I’m about to get a new tablet - 10 inch and 1920x1080 resolution - and like trying out Shadow on this one as well. I am wondering if anyone is using such a table for gaming? especially wondering about whether the text of the games can be read, despite of the lower size (I am especially playing titles like Stellaris - where lots of things have to read). I suppose with titles like Civilizations its much easier. Thanks in advance, if anyone is using such a tablet and likes to share his experiences. Best greetings,Robert
I have many questions about Shadow pertaining to privacy?
First, this is amazing. I installed the pso2 ngs benchmark character creator and I was able to run it through shadow (I didn’t have avx on my computer so this is truly amazing).However, I have so many questions. For example, I have to create things like passwords through games, confirm the email, etc. Is this information safe in our shadow? Is anyone able to view what is happening on the screen?Is it safe to put things on there we don’t want others to see?Or should be consider shadow basically a public computer?PERFORMANCE:While the benchmark shows good results, I noticed that the game was actually glitching every second. For example if I turn my character in character creator, I noticed that it stops for .15 seconds then starts, stops, then starts. Why?Is this due to my upload speeds? Its only between 5-10mb/s. Do I need more upload?My download is at 60mb/s
Shadow BETA (Windows)
I didn’t get my Shadow activated yet but I was just wondering, when I get it activated should I use it in the BETA version for Windows or the stable version? I’ve read in a couple of places people saying that they had better experience on the BETA version. Like less lag, latency and what not. Plus, if I decided to go with the BETA is it recommended that I use the BETA app on my phone too? I have iOS.
Shadow 101: Treat Her Like a P.C.
Even though Shadow is VM (Virtual Machine), it's still a physical machine doing Work.Secondary is the Local Machine also using its Resources to stream.1. If you wish to Max Game Settings, you might need to build a Gaming Rig. Might.2. If you wish to Max Speed Settings, you might need to secure a TB+ speed package from your ISP. My ISP splits data between 10 Devices at any given moment.3. Remember Shadow dynamically replaces "components", so you don't have to.#TeamShadow👊🏾
Custom Resolutions beyond width 4096
FYI - If you have a monitor with a native resolution greater than 4096 in width, like an iMac 5k, or the ultra ultra wide 5120x1440 display, you may have found that you get an S:101 error if you set a custom resolution to match your display. This is not a Shadow limitation, but a limitation of the Nvidia encoder that is used by default. If you enable the low-bandwidth mode setting in your client, you can run Shadow at much higher resolutions. This setting leverages the h.265 encoding which requires a little more horsepower on your client, but having native resolution is worth it! Just make sure to set low-bandwidth mode on before setting the custom resolution or you will get a S:101 error. Enjoy your super high resolution Shadow!
Backing Up Windows System Files with System Protection
When the System Protection utility is turned on, it automatically backs up system files and stores them on the hard drive at regular intervals and just before you install software or hardware. These snapshots of the system are called restore points and include Windows system files that have changed since the last restore point was made. A restore point does not contain all user data, and you can manually create a restore point at any time. System Restore (rstrui.exe) restores the system to its condition at the time a restore point was made. If you restore the system to a previous restore point, user data on the hard drive will not be altered, but you can affect installed software and hardware, user settings and passwords, and OS configuration settings. Tip 1: Enable System Protection 1.) Open Control Panel and open the System window. In the System window, click System protection. The System Protection tab of the System Properties box appears. 2.) Make sure protection is

When Shadowing... Do you run everything from the Shadow VM?
Greetings, I just got access to my Shadow boost. I was wondering if users ran everything through the shadow or had things like discord still on their main device?I’m showing 30ms latency at the moment so I’m not sure how smoothly things are going to work when I actually launch a game.Any other tips for a noob?J

Great Job Shadow Team & Community!
Just wanted to say I have been really enjoying Shadow ever since I signed up. Its allowed me to play VR games that I originally couldn’t on my Quest (Half-Life: Alyx). Look forward and can’t wait for the Quest app mentioned in the Road Map section. I am also playing some online games with friends that I haven’t been able to do in awhile due to my gaming rig going out on me. I continue to share info on shadow every time I get the chance. To me this is the future keep up the great work! *How do I sign up for the better systems? After signing up for boost I no longer see the option to upgrade or reserve the other options? Thanks!
iOS Shadow User Opinions
Hey all! New to the forums (as most are) and thought I’d post a little something to give everyone a place to post their opinions! I recently lost my android phone and discovered that the Shadow App is actually in the Apple store and downloaded it right away. Off the bat I noticed that the game list wasn’t there when I logged in and that’s okay to me, no big deal. Actually I didn’t have much issues on it to be honest and so far I’ve used it about 3 times so I’ll deff need more time to mess around with it. anyway, what are you alls opinions on it? Anyone prefer the iOS build over the android? Vice versa? Let me know what you think! -Ghost.Pro
