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.
