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.

StuffIt Standard Edition 8.0 and StuffIt Engine 8.0.1 -- Aladdin Systems has released StuffIt Standard Edition 8.0, the most recent version of the bundle containing DropStuff, DropZip, DropTar, and the free StuffIt Expander. New features include faster compression, interface improvements to DropStuff, and support for more file formats (see "What's New in StuffIt Deluxe 8.0" in TidBITS-698 for details). StuffIt Standard Edition 8.0 costs $50, with upgrades for registered users at $15. A free 15-day trial version is available as a 7.2 MB download, and remember, downloading StuffIt Standard Edition is how you get the free StuffIt Expander.

Don't stop downloading, though, since Aladdin has also released the free StuffIt Engine 8.0.1 Updater for all versions of StuffIt. It addresses an issue where a bundled Mac OS X application (as opposed to a Classic application or a single-file application) compressed in a .sit file (as opposed to StuffIt's more modern .sitx file format), won't launch after being expanded. The problem stems from the fact that the .sit file format predates (and thus can't store) Unix file permissions that are necessary for bundled Mac OS X applications to launch. To work around this limitation, Aladdin previously set the execution bit on all expanded files, but Apple warned against that approach, so Aladdin removed the workaround in StuffIt 8.0. Unfortunately, failing to set the execution bit properly proved too inconvenient for users, so the StuffIt Engine 8.0.1 Updater restores the previous workaround until Aladdin can develop a more elegant solution. You can avoid the problem with bundled Mac OS X applications by using the .sitx file format (everyone who has StuffIt Expander 7.0, which shipped with Mac OS X 10.2 and the last security update for Mac OS X 10.1.5, can expand .sitx files). The StuffIt Engine 8.0.1 Updater is a 3.9 MB download. [ACE]
