ChronoSync 4.6.5

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.6.5 [1] with two new major inclusion and exclusion options — “Root level only” and “Auto-exclude new items.” The Root level option enables you to copy files and folders designated from a folder of aliases, but the option will copy aliases deeper in the folder hierarchy only as aliases. The Auto-exclude option excludes any new files or folders from being backed up or synchronized (learn more about these features at this Econ tech note [2]).

The synchronization and backup app also improves its “file not found” error handling, adds Allow SmartScan and Aggressive Mode options to the removable media target options sheet, fixes a bug that prevented archive handling from being temporarily disabled when restoring a file from the archive, fixes a problem that occurred when renaming files on certain NAS devices, and updates online help. (Free update, $49.99 new for ChronoSync with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members [3], 29 MB, release notes [4], 10.8+)
