Econ Technologies Inc. has updated ChronoSync, its synchronization and backup software for Mac OS X, to version 3.1. The new release adds file archiving abilities so you can review and restore older files as well. ChronoSync 3.1 costs US$30, it’s a free update for registered users. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later.
ChronoSync enables you to synchronize data between folders on your Mac, other Macs, PCs, external drives r your iPod — you can use the software to regularly schedule a document or folder to sync, and it handles volume mounting automatically. You can also exclude specific files and folders, check sync status and run “trial” syncs to see what will happen.
Other changes in ChronoSync 3.1 include improved support on Tiger — synced files now maintained extended attribute metadata and access control lists. Compare and Delete commands have been added to the Trial Synchronization Window. The Delete command now allows you to delete files immediately, and a monthly option has been added to scheduling.
