ChronoSync 4.5.2 – Synchronize, backup, and create bootable backups.

Appked/ Featured/on 2014-08-02 18:56

ChronoSync 4.5.2ChronoSync easily synchronizes or backs-up files and folders in a variety of ways.

Synchronize files between folders, hard drives, removable media, laptops, file servers, or any computer, not just a Mac. Features include:

  • Fully customizable toolbar.
  • All synchronization settings are stored in separate, self-contained, double-click- able documents that can be run or modified at any time.
  • Synchronize files in any direction or bi-directionally.
  • Establish simple, intermediate, or advanced rules to include or exclude files by name, size, date, extension, plus other more advanced options.
  • Compare files before and after synchronizations to see the status of every file.
  • Run trial synchronizations to check results before committing.
  • Special options that ignore invisible files, resolve alias, preserve folder attributes and synchronize deletions.
  • A complete transaction log maintains a complete history of all synchronizations run with options for exporting and printing.
  • Automate synchronization with a full-featured scheduler.
  • Schedule synchronizations to occur at launch, termination, once, or any repetitive time frame desired.
  • Launch ChronoSync at system startup and have it run in the background.
  • Use AppleScripts to automate the process even further.


WHAT’S NEW

Version 4.5.2:

  • The synchronizer and container document Rename, Delete, and Duplicate now produce more meaningful error messages if those operations fail.
  • Fixed a bug whereby the "Duplicate" function was not properly duplicating container documents. Several items of metadata were not properly preserved.
  • Fixed a bug whereby the Document Organizer could fail to display on launch under certain scenarios.
  • Fixed a bug that would not re-display the Document Organizer if you opened a document that required a password to access and clicked "Cancel" from the prompt.
  • Fixed a bug that would not re-display the Document Organizer if you opened a document and received the "Document in Use" error message.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a crash if a newly created synchronizer or container document were closed before it was fully displayed.
  • Implemented a custom configuration option (via plist settings) to return to creating "Untitled" synchronizer documents on application launch & activation.
  • Fixed an animation glitch that occurred when switching to bootable, local agent connection in a single step.
  • Fixed some bugs that could cause a hang or crash when selecting targets.
  • Fixed a cosmetic glitch whereby the deletion and readiness boxes were not animating properly on 10.9+.
  • Fixed a cosmetic glitch whereby the background of the detailed readiness message text view was being displayed in a subtle shade of grey.
  • Fixed a bug whereby bootable options for remote agents would be disabled if connection to the local agent could not be established for some reason.
  • Fixed a bug whereby collapsing a multi-level branch of files in the Analyze or Archive panel could result in the user interface for that document becoming unresponsive.
  • Fixed a bug whereby user and group names on a remote agent connection were not being properly displayed in the Analyze panel.
  • Fixed a bug whereby the "Last Synchronized" column in the Analyze panel was not updating in real time and could continue to show an erroneous value until a refresh was forced.
  • Fixed a bug whereby extended timeout values for local agent connects were not being established on initial connection attempts.
  • Implemented more efficient collection of file metadata such as as extended attributes and ACLs.
  • Fixed a bug whereby changes to a file's extended attributes were not always correctly detected when the EA sync trigger was enabled.
  • The file synchronization engine will now only force copying new files to a temporary file name on file server connections.
  • Added better fall-back logic for situations where some file systems produce errors when certain file access permissions are requested.
  • Fixed a bug in the "Verify Data" function that was not properly bypassing device caches.
  • The file copying logic now iterates file forks more efficiently.
  • Added the option to control file copying cache behavior via plist settings.
  • Eliminated some inefficiencies in the copy engine that were carry-overs from very early versions of the application.
  • Updated the volume blacklist for bootable targets and auto-exclusion.
  • Fixed some bugs in the diagnostic auditing mechanism.
  • Changed the terminology displayed in the user interface when selecting a custom location for the "Synchronizer Documents" folder.
  • Added workaround logic that should prevent various progress sheet windows from failing to show progress on certain systems.
  • Added logic to prevent accidental deletion of files when running the installer on 10.6 systems after a very specific (and obscure) sequence of events.
