Synchronize Pro 4.0 Syncs over Internet
Qdea has released Synchronize Pro 4.0, an update to its industrial-strength synchronization utility that now works over the Internet. (See "Tools We Use: Synchronize" in TidBITS 482 for a review of Synchronize Pro’s sister utility.) Synchronize Pro enables you to back up, synchronize, or mirror files using TCP/IP; as a result, local network operations perform faster than using AppleTalk. Copying or comparing files can be automated and scheduled. The utility can also initiate and close AppleTalk Remote Access connections, mirror AppleShare privileges to other file servers, and automatically shut down the computer or put it to sleep. A limited version of Synchronize Pro 4.0 is available as a 1.8 MB download, and works for free on folders of 10 MB or less. The unrestricted version of the program costs $100.
