Customizable synchronization and backup solution that is able to automatically copy data between various volumes, or to create bootable backups
Storage disks usually fail, sooner or later, so creating backups for your important files and folders on multiple locations is highly advisable.
ChronoSync is a macOS utility that is able to backup data, synchronize files between devices, or create bootable backups (suitable for backing up entire operating systems).
Effortless to setup synchronization and backup utility featuring a clean and organized design
Finding your way around the ChronoSync main window is fairly intuitive: start by setting up the source and target volumes, and then select the synchronization method and direction from the drop down menu placed in the center of the configuration panel.
ChronoSync is able to work with most volumes connected to your Mac.
Note that you have to synchronize files if you want to have access to them on more than one device: that means that ChronoSync will automatically copy the changes between the two volumes.
Backups, on the other hand, represent a one direction transfer from the source folder to the backup storage location.
Enables you to backup entire operating systems or drives by creating bootable backups
ChronoSync is capable to create a bootable backup of your system on an external drive, or on another internal disk: this way, you will have an exact replica of your system that can be run immediately in case your primary installation breaks down.
In addition, ChronoSync also allows you to store the bootable backup on a remote network location.
On top of all the data handling rules that can be personalized via the ChronoSync panels, the application also enables you to schedule specific tasks, so you can make sure that your data is backed up or synchronized periodically.
Reliable solution for backing up information and synchronizing data between multiple locations
ChronoSync provides versatile solutions for setting up backup and transfer rules between various drives connected to your network.
This way you can work on the same files on multiple devices, or backup important documents on more than one volume.
What’s new in ChronoSync 4.8.2
・Tweaked the “Optimization” phase of bootable backup tasks so that the destination volumes would boot more efficiently and reliably, especially if they contain a High Sierra installation.
・When calculating the next scheduled run date of a scheduled task, the program (both ChronoSync and ChronoSync Scheduler) would hang if the next run date fell after a Daylight Savings Time-to-Standard Time transition.
・Running a container task that encapsulated multiple sync/backup tasks that simultaneously process many files (via concurrent operations) was susceptible to crashing when closing the container task window.
・Specifying a source or destination target that resided on an APFS filesystem would result in the “Strict volume identification” setting defaulting to OFF.
