Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents

If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.

  • You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
  • You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.

Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

Storage Wars -- Looking for a gigabyte-sized removable drive for backup or file storage? TidBITS Contributing Editor Matt Neuburg was, so we spent time at Macworld Expo comparing Iomega's Jaz (1 GB now with a 2 GB drive coming soon), SyQuest's SyJet 1.5 GB drive, and the forthcoming 2.1 GB Orb drive from newcomer Castlewood Systems. After conversations with company representatives, we realized that the differences boiled down to price and popularity, as well as - potentially - speed and reliability. The SyJet 1.5 currently costs the least, particularly with the $249 show special that included two cartridges. The 1 GB Jaz drive is the most ubiquitous, with over one million units sold, making it the best choice for compatibility and trading files. And, the new Orb drive (when it ships) will be the cheapest, fastest, and roomiest, and it may have the best reliability due to a simpler mechanism (though early units of removable drives often have problems).

So, for individual backup, the SyJet 1.5 GB appears to be the drive of choice, and the 1 GB Jaz drive looks ideal for those who work with service bureaus. The Orb drive, if it lives up to its promises, may compete seriously with the SyJet 1.5 for individual use (especially because the Orb's $30 cartridges are significantly cheaper than cartridges for the other two), though it could take time to become popular in service bureaus.
