Not real sure about this but ...

Shadow files are copies of other files. They are used to allow recovery and such when updating files that are active and get changes and to allow access to the last good boot. By and large you should not do anything with/to them other than through system utilities and such.

You can get the same/similar by looking a the active copy (don't change them either other than via standard utilities and such).
