ChronoSync is the professional choice for periodic backups, bootable drive clones and folder synchronizations. Target any device or folder visible in Finder such as a volume, thumb drive, NAS, disk image, server or (with ChronoAgent) another Mac! ChronoSync replaces your backup utility, drive clone utility, and folder sync utility with a single, powerful application. Get push notifications of your syncs sent to your phone with ChronoMonitor. Add InterConneX (free for iOS) and use ChronoSync to push files and folders to your iDevice!
- A ChronoAgent connection profile can now limit the amount of network bandwidth that a sync operation will consume.
- The 'Optimal Host Routing' connection profile option will choose the most efficient network route to a ChronoAgent when multiple routes exist.
- SmartScan will now work for removable media (including DMGs) as long as the media supports it (targets in existing sync documents must be re-specified for it to take effect).
- Added logic to workaround problems caused by some NAS devices that want to generate 'Parameter Errors' when creating some files & folders.
- Better multi-threaded performance when aggregating the contents of package files.
- If the background scheduler starts up on a volume other than what it was configured on, it will disable itself and report this action to the user.
- Added logic that reduces the UI's tendency to want to refresh the Analyze Panel on sync document open/setup, even when the Analyze Panel isn't visible.
- The Setup Panel now allows for a slightly shorter window.
- The AppleScript 'Synchronize' command now waits (up to 30 seconds) for the synchronizer to change status before returning to the caller.
- Better handling of 'broken' alias files during a sync.
- Updated online help.
- Fixed a bug where full product activation was impossible if a trial license key was previously entered for "All Users" of the computer.
- Fixed a crashing bug that could occur when multiple synchronizer documents were starting up at exactly the same time.
- Fixed a crashing bug that could occur if auto-exclusions were being removed at the root level of a sync document at precisely the same moment that the file system changed.
- Fixed a bug where the "Only sync if target volumes/agents are available" scheduling option was inadvertently being allowed for Container Sync documents.
- Fixed a crashing bug that could occur when closing document windows on OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) if the corresponding log window was open (or had previously been opened).
- Fixed a bug where the scheduled item suspension constraint ("Abort if still running at…") could interfere with future manual & scheduled syncs if the associated sync document window was left open when the constraint was reached.
- Fixed a bug where if a scheduled item could not start for some reason, the timestamp that was used for the 'recent syncs' entry would be the time of the last run of that item, not the time the failed start occurred.
- Fixed a bug where if the computer was forced to sleep in the midst of issuing a command to a remote ChronoAgent, a hang could potentially occur when the system awoke.
- Fixed a bug where the Analyze Panel's warning field and connection progress indicator would not always be displayed if a sync document was opened with the Analyze Panel as the initial view.
- Fixed a bug where the automatic login for file sharing targets would not work if the username included spaces and the target was a OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) system.
- Fixed a bug where SMB targets that were OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) systems were not always being properly detected and thus the user received 'MS-DOS' filesystem warnings.
- Fixed a bug where when asserting a volume 'Ignore ownership' change, sometimes success was reported when in fact it had failed.
- Fixed a bug where the SmartScan logic could trigger unnecessary syncs if what the operating system recognized as package files changed in between syncs (this could happen from installing or removing applications).
- Fixed various typos in the user interface.
- Intel, 64-bit processor
- OS X 10.8 or later
