ChronoSync 4.1 and ChronoAgent 1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies has released updates to its data management and backup utility, ChronoSync, and its associated remote access utility ChronoAgent, which enables ChronoSync to gain full root access to a Mac that's been mounted via file sharing.

ChronoSync 4.1 adds new scheduling behaviors and options, email notifications of missed syncs, the capability to wake sleeping ChronoAgent systems, new preference settings for the background scheduler, and new "sync when available" and "when specific volume mounts" scheduling options. The update also improves sync performance, tweaks the user interface, adds agent performance optimization features, and fixes a short list of bugs that includes two crashing bugs. Full release notes are available on Econ Technologies' Web site.

ChronoAgent 1.1 improves performance, automatically detects changes in network configuration and ensures its availability on the new network, adds the capability to limit volumes that are accessible over a connection, adds support for wake-on-LAN, and enhances the installer. Full release notes for ChronoAgent are also available. ($40/$10 new, free updates, 20.7/3.1 MB)
