ChronoSync 4.8.2

Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.8.2, which tweaks the Optimization phase of bootable backup tasks so that the destination volumes boot more efficiently and reliably (particularly with macOS 10.13 High Sierra). The synchronization and backup app also resolves a hang that occurred when scheduling a task if the date fell after a Daylight Saving Time-to-Standard Time transition, prevents a crash that could occur when running a container task that encapsulated multiple sync/backup tasks, and fixes a bug that turned off the “Strict volume identification” setting by default if specifying a destination target that resided on an APFS file system. ($49.99 new for ChronoSync with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 48.4 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
