ChronoSync 4.8.5

Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.8.5, a maintenance release for the synchronization and backup app with bug fixes and under-the-hood enhancements. The update fixes a “critical” bug introduced in version 4.8.4 that caused all hard links recreated on the destination of a sync to reference the same object. The release also brings enhanced error logging for keychain API errors to help when debugging keychain access issues, adds workaround logic to better deal with file managers that may not properly aggregate packages, reworks how the copy buffer size is negotiated, resolves an issue that would cause the Bootable Backup Assistant to spin indefinitely, and fixes a bug related to aborting Amazon S3 connections. ($49.99 new for ChronoSync with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 48.7 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
