File Sync Utility Update fron Econ Tech

Econ Technologies has released an update for ChronoSync, bringing it to version 1.0.1. ChronoSync is a back-up file and folder syncing utility designed for connecting several devices to a network. The maintenance update addresses several performance and bug issues. According to Econ Technologies:

The first maintenance release for ChronoSync™, the automated synchronization tool for Mac® OS X, is now available. This version addresses alias and symbolic link resolution issues encountered after the program was initially released. In addition, it includes a few tweaks and enhancements. With ChronoSync you can synchronize files between folders, hard drives, removable media, laptops, file servers, or any computer.

Some of the highlights of version 1.0.1 include:

  • Synchronizer no longer raises an exception and aborts when encountering a symbolic link directly referencing one of itis targets
  • Resolving aliases to file servers during synchronization now properly displays the iLogini dialog
  • File copying is now always a isafe-stylei copy i.e. copy is made to a temporary file, original is deleted and temporary file renamed to the original
  • Broken network connections during synchronization are now handled much better
  • File ownership and group membership preservation is now correctly attempted
  • Multiple login dialogs are no longer presented when opening a document with one or both targets on a file server
  • Exclusion messages no longer get posted to the log twice
  • A iSkip Error Reportingi option has been added to the synchronizer
  • When resolving conflicts, the complete relative path of the conflicting item is now displayed.
