ChronoSync for Mac OS X
- Click 'Download' and a disk image file will begin downloading to your computer.
- When the download is complete open your Downloads folder in Finder.
- Double click the file named "CS4_Download.dmg".
- The disk image will mount and a Finder window will open.
- Double click "Install" to run the package installer and follow its directions.
- When installation is complete, you can eject the "ChronoSync" disk image.
The disk image also contains an uninstaller that should be used if you want to completely remove ChronoSync from your system. If you run it, don’t be confused by the terminology - it will state "Installing Uninstaller" but it really is performing an uninstall!
Synchronization makes two sets of files identical to each other. The classic example is when you have an office desktop computer and a laptop for your travels. You would want your Documents 'Synchronized' before departure and again when you return. ChronoSync excels at this task!
If you are a set-it-and-forget-it type person, ChronoSync won't let you down. Powerful scheduling capabilities allow you to schedule any sync or backup task to run at virtually any time interval you can imagine. To make sure your scheduled tasks are running like clockwork, use ChronoSync's notification options such as sending emails or posting messages to the system’s Notification Center. You can even push notifications directly to your iPhone via the ChronoMonitor app. No other sync or backup tool offers this kind of notification flexibility.
A backup creates redundant copies of your files to protect against data loss. Periodic local backups copy only modified files, typically to another drive attached to your computer, and save or 'archive' older versions of your files. ChronoSync, of course, can handle both periodic local backups and archiving copies of your older data files!
If you're a hands-on type person, ChronoSync is definitely for you. Not only can you manually invoke all your synchronizations and backups, ChronoSync offers the ability to drill-down through your sync tree and control exactly what will occur on the Analyze Panel. For peace of mind, run Trial Synchronizations that display a list of operations so you can make changes before committing them. No other tool provides this level of interaction. Most simply make you choose a source and destination, leaving you to hope for the best when you run your sync!
A bootable backup is a clone of your start up drive. Because it is a complete carbon copy of your system, it allows you to startup your Mac and be instantly back to work if your primary drive fails. This is critical if you simply can’t afford to spend the time rebuilding your system. It could take days to perhaps weeks, if you’ve opted for a cloud-based backup. ChronoSync, a multi-purpose utility, can handle bootable backups with ease.
InterConneX, free for iOS, creates file storage on your iOS device and allows the direct sharing and transfer of files between iOS devices, as well as sharing and transfer of files with your Mac running ChronoSync or ChronoAgent. With ChronoSync on a Mac you can automatically backup or synchronize files and folders to and from InterConneX. No other sync or backup tool offers a companion app for iOS let alone one that allows you to store and share documents so seamlessly and easily!
A backup creates redundant copies of your files to protect against data loss. Periodic remote backups only copy modified files to a distant location, which can be across the room, across the house or across the planet! This can be another computer, server or NAS device, as long as you can mount it on your Mac. If the remote computer is another Mac, use ChronoAgent to make your remote backup faster, more secure and reliable!
Remote Bootable Backup
A remote bootable backup is identical to a bootable backup except the backup drive is connected to another Mac. This can be across the room, across the house or across the planet! Simply install ChronoAgent on the remote Mac and use any external hard drive connected to that Mac as if it were connected to your local computer. Remote Bootable Backup is the best safeguard against physical threats such as theft, water or fire damage. This is unique to ChronoSync!
ChronoSync is the professional-quality, 3-in-1 app that Mac owners rely upon for standard backup, bootable backup, and folder synchronization.
