Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.4.2 and ChronoAgent 1.4.3 with compatibility for OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The ChronoSync synchronization/backup app improves sync and refresh performance, fixes several bugs related to adding files and folders to the Archive, fixes several issues related to mounting volumes, and changes the behavior of when the app checks for updates if ChronoSync is left running for a long time. Both ChronoSync and ChronoAgent improve performance related to scanning package files included in a sync tree as well as when aborting syncs, and ChronoAgent now ensures all applicable threads are terminated when aborting a sync. Full release notes for ChronoSync and ChronoAgent are available. ($40 new for ChronoSync, $10 new for ChronoAgent; free updates; 27.2 MB, 10.6 MB)
