ChronoSync, Econ Technologies’ automated synchronization tool for Mac OS X, has been updated to version 1.0.3.
With ChronoSync, you can designate one or more files or folders and synchronize between fixed hard drives, removable media, file servers or other computers. You can automate synchronization with a full-featured scheduler. ChronoSync offers a transaction log and maintains a complete history of any synchronization performed.
Enhancements in the 1.0.3 update include safe methods for removing files when synchronizing deletions, automatic detection of volume mounts, and improved notification when removable media needs to be inserted, according to Joseph Japes of Econ Technologies. The new version also has enhanced volume mount detection. If a target can’t be verified, you can mount the volume and ChronoSync will automatically detect it, Japes said. If the target resides on removable media, a dialog will ask you to mount it. Other enhancements include the preservation of Mac OS X “hard-links,” the ability of rules to apply to synchronized deletions and other bug fixes.
The update is free to all existing ChronoSync users at the
product Web site, where you can also get a demo version. The purchase price is US$19.95.
