    "Rant, moan, condemn..."

    amcgee ~ Because of your perceived 'grievance' you rate Jacek's work at one star - never mind the quality of his work - Oh boy!

    Your remark about the Bombich site needs modifying - there are plenty of references there to new versions of psync, e.g.: Have your cake *and* eat it..

    What have you personally done to bring about the unification you so much desire?

    "Dan vs. Jacek"

    Sign. Here we are, more than a year later, and we still don't have a unified psync. Dan Kogai's version is the one that is officially recognized and is easily installable via Fink, Mike Bombich still has an old version linked off his web site, PsyncX installs it's own version, and Jacek's hack still floats out in the breeze. Why is it so difficult for these people to create one single script?

    "Psync rocks!"

    Summary

    This is the swiss army knife of tools.

    Need a nightly backup? Just add it to the crontab and you'll get a fresh clone every night.

    Need to clone someone's system to a new computer? Put the new computer in target firewire mode (and make sure to set it to not ignore permissions in Get Info in the Finder!) and then psync away. You get a perfect, bootable clone on the new machine.

    Love this product. (As if you couldn't tell!)

    PS: I've also experienced the -r bug mentioned below, but always just put it down to AFP's weird permissioning behavior... I just -m instead of -r as this is simply a user backup and can be owned by the user that mounted the volume, it's not a problem for me.

    PPS: Mounting volumes is cake using Applescript. Just add this above the psync in your crontab:

    osascript -e 'tell application "Finder"' -e 'mount volume "afp://someuser:somepassword@servername.local/VolumeToMount"' -e 'end tell';

    And if you want to unmount afterwards:
    osascript -e 'tell application "Finder"' -e 'eject "VolumeToEject"' -e 'end tell'

    "Have your cake and eat it,"

    Version: psync 0.68.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

    Using psync within CCC. D/loaded 0.68.1 just to try it, intending to revert to the previous version if I didn't like the time penalty. Data if you are curious (irrelevant because same for both clonings):
    No of files: 112,100; 6.4 GB. iMac G4 800; OS 10.3.4; LaCie external FW.
    Re-booted before each cloning to ensure that plenty of files would have been modified. OK, I didn't mess with ownerships, etc â?? couldn't see the slightest point. The time I was concerned about was the time required to check all files.

    1.   psync 0.67.1     Time: 10.68 mins
    2.   psync 0.68.1     Time:   9.62 mins

    A negative time penalty!!! The rebuild hasn't just reduced the size! Previous version already binned.

    Thank you very much yet again, Jacek. Wow!

    hoooray! excludes... just gotta love it.

    Too bad Dan Kogai doesn't finally pick up Jacek's modifications. But then, who cares as along as Jacek keeps up his good work. Thanks, Mr. Stanislawski.

    Anyone having problems with CCC should post in Troubleshooting at "http://forums.bombich.com/" â?? better than just shrugging your shoulders and giving up!

    Version: psync 0.65.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Having installed this mildly reworked psync my psync cron job last night produced exactly the output that I've been looking for:
    "deleting items ...
    copying items ...
    fixing directory attributes ..."

    None of the silly problems with "pointless" links, non-empty directories and so forth. Thanks for taking the time to post the modifications, and here's hoping
    that Dan releases an official update of MacOSX::File incorporating these changes in the near future.
