Synchronize. Backup. Bootable Backup.

Whatever your backup or sync scenario, ChronoSync has got you covered!



Yes it does. In fact, it works on 10.6 - 10.10.
No. The reason is because Apple will not permit any applications sold in the MAS to gain Admin Access to your Mac. A backup or sync app requires Admin Access in order to copy all the files on a Mac. So that means any backup or sync app you purchase on MAS is limited.
We do not offer educational pricing, but do offer volume discounts to everyone. Discounts on 5, 10 & 25 packs are available online. For information on larger quantity discounts, email our sales department with your inquiry.
ChronoSync requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later (Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, and Yosemite). 70 MB of free disk space is also needed.
No. If you are synchronizing between two computers, you only need to install ChronoSync on one Mac and mount the other Mac. You can connect to the other Mac via File Sharing or install ChronoAgent on the other Mac for better performance. ChronoSync will automatically mount the remote computer for you with either option.
Time Machine is the system level backup service that's built into Mac OS X. It works transparently, behind the scenes, to take snapshots of your files. Backups are implicit but you have little control over what is backed up, when they are backed up and where the backups are placed. ChronoSync provides explicit control over your backups allowing you to control what is backed up, where it is placed and how often it is backed up. ChronoSync actually works quite complimentary with Time Machine. For more details, click here.
Yes, but only files and folders under the User and/or Home folders.
Yes. By using InterConneX in conjunction with ChronoSync, you can backup or synchronize files to an iPad and to an iPhone.
For backup operations, any file and folder that the logged-in user has read-access to. If you can open the folder in Finder and see its contents, and open the documents in an application, they can be backed up by ChronoSync. This typically encompasses everything in your Home folder.

For synchronization operations, you will also need write-access to these files so they can be changed. You typically have read and write access to the same files so this is rarely a problem. You should be careful about synchronizing the contents of your Library folder with another computer, however, since it typically contains computer-specific information.
Yes. You can synchronize certain files, like document files, between any OS that your Mac can copy to. For instance, you can synchronize your Documents between Mountain Lion and Yosemite or even Mountain Lion and Windows XP. However, you can only perform a Home-to-Home sync between the same version of Mac OS X, meaning you must sync Yosemite to Yosemite but not Yosemite to Mountain Lion. Furthermore, you need to make sure that your iApps like iPhoto, iTunes and iCal are the same version.
Not safely. ChronoSync can merge the contents of two iPhoto libraries together, but iPhoto won't recognize those changes. This is because iPhoto tracks all its photos in a private database file. If you merged the contents of two libraries, you'd be making changes that aren't reflected in the database and iPhoto may lose track of your photos.
YES. In the Setup panel for each target, change "Connect to" to "Local Volumes (Admin Access)" to gain access to all files in the target regardless of permissions. This will only work for drives connected directly to your Mac. You cannot gain administrative access to any volume mounted via file sharing. To connect to a remote Mac with full administrative access, you can always use ChronoAgent.
Yes! ChronoSync can make bootable backups to locally attached, internal and external hard drives. It can also make remote bootable backups over a network connection very easily, by combining it with ChronoAgent.
Yes. Take a look at how to Synchronize with a Disk Image to see how you can protect and encrypt your data.
ChronoSync is available in English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, and Brazilian Portuguese.
No, it does not. Just be sure to launch ChronoSync once via double-click in Finder from its new location so that location path identifiers can be updated.
No. ChronoSync does not install any kernel extensions or patch any system service nor does it bypass high level system APIs to communicate directly with devices. ChronoSync operates exclusively in "user land" and will not affect the overall stability of your system. ChronoSync DOES perform very high intensity disk I/O and, very rarely, may expose underlaying hardware and/or driver issues. If such occurs, our support team will be happy to assist in solving the problem even though it does not reside in ChronoSync itself.
Backup is when you copy files to a destination so that you have a redundant copy, in case something goes wrong with the original.

Synchronization is when you copy and work on files within both targets, like a desktop and a laptop.
