Editors' Review

by   / April 10, 2013

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 4.9.4

Changes & Enhancements:

  • Changed Strict Volume Identification to no longer examine deviceModel and deviceProtocol.
  • Implemented full Diagnostic Logging support in the InterConneX connections

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug when communicating with an InterConneX sharespace as a target whereby it was not likely going to be able to copy into a locked folder.
  • Fixed a bug whereby if invoking a Trial Sync and target validation fails, subsequent attempts to invoke a standard sync (after correcting the cause of the validation failure) would invoke Trial Sync again unexpectedly.
  • Fixed a few diagnostic messages that were being generated in non-debug builds.
  • Fixed the logic used to determine a unique, temporary file name for copying to a remote cloud or InterConneX target as it had concurrence issues and could return non-unique filenames if called simultaneously from different threads.
  • Fixed a bug whereby setting the UF_HIDDEN, UF_IMMUTABLE and UF_APPEND BSD flags on a file stored in an InterConneX target was prone to setting random values for those flags.
  • Fixed a bug whereby extracting a file path from a collection record could result in a corrupt path. This could lead to errors or even a crash.
  • Fixed a bug whereby the read-only destination readiness test would report "Left target is read-only" when BOTH targets were read-only, even though it was a left-to-right sync.
