ChronoSync 4.4.4 and ChronoAgent 1.4.5

Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.4.4 and ChronoAgent 1.4.5 with a number of bug fixes that should improve overall stability. The ChronoSync automated synchronization and backup app addresses several instances of crashes, including when certain types of email servers are configured, copying data to an InterConneX share space, closing sync documents after manually running a sync, and posting information to a sync document’s log. It also fixes a bug that applied incorrect permissions to read-only, locked files that are safe-copied and ensures that the installer correctly replaces all previously installed components. The ChronoAgent utility fixes a crash that occurred when the agent is asked to collect information on all mounted volumes. (Free updates for both apps; $40 new for ChronoSync with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, 27.2 MB, release notes; $10 new for ChronoAgent, 10.6 MB, release notes)
