Editors' Review

Users working between multiple workstations may need to access the same file from different computers and back up data between them. ChronoSync for Mac is a welcome program for those users and syncs data quickly and securely.

The program offers a free trial version available with a 500-file transfer limit while the full version requires $40 to unlock. The setup of ChronoSync for Mac went smoothly despite requiring acceptance of a lengthy user agreement. Upon first starting the program up, the user can choose to open a complete user manual, which is a welcome addition to this type of program, as novice users may not understand all of the features. Technical support for updates was also present. Upon starting, the user interface was easy to decipher, with left and right transfer folders similar to FTP programs for server upload. The user can select to back up and sync between folders in the same device, or on a different computer linked via a network. Many options are available to restrict or permit syncing of certain files or criteria. The buttons for operating the program's main features were easy to locate, even if the instructions were not used. Actual syncing completed quickly and without error, as would be expected.

For those users backing up files between networked computers, ChronoSync for Mac performs well and offers all expected features.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of ChronoSync for Mac 4.3.7.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 4.8.4
  • Added more intelligence to the Analyze Panel in an effort to reduce/eliminate unnecessary refreshes.
  • Posting entries to a task document's log during a synchronization is now less thread intensive.
  • A 'bootable' trigger mode will now enable the EA and ACL variable attribute triggers, but only if both targets support 'ExtendedInfoCollection' i.e. not for connections to old versions of ChronoAgent.
  • Implemented an alternate technique for aggregating package files that is much faster on APFS file systems. We now use optimal package aggregation techniques depending on whether we are accessing an APFS or HFS filesystem.
  • Internally, all timestamp manipulations & comparisons are done with sub-second precision. The UI still floors to the nearest second, however.
  • The Scheduled Tasks database is now loaded and instantiated in a background thread. If you have a large schedule and/or slower computer, ChronoSync will launch faster but you'll see a delay before scheduled entries appear.
  • The filesystem validation logic employed when scanning the contents of folders will now try to adapt to inconsistencies detected in the file system rather than immediately throwing an error. This is because High Sierra is reporting a lot of inconsistencies, especially with SMB mounted file servers.
  • If package dissection is OFF, maintaining an archive which contains package files is now much more efficient. Depending on the nature of your sync/backup task, this could yield a significant performance improvement.
  • Added the 'Post more detailed information to the log' checkbox to the Validator UI. This determines whether or not detailed info will be posted about mismatches. This used to be controlled by the Synchronizer's equivalent property but now you can control the behavior independently.
  • Now prevents the system from sleeping when restoring or deleting a batch of files in the Analyze Panel.
  • The process of connecting to target file managers in a scheduled sync (one that runs without a user interface) is now more streamlined & efficient.
  • Added new Chinese and Paris endpoints to the Amazon S3 Connection Profile Editor.
  • When creating a folder as part of a sync operation, we now wrap the operation in a compound task.
