Synchronize Pro X6.9

16 January 2020

Make a bootable backup of your OS X system.

Overview

Synchronize! Pro X is a professional-strength system backup and file synchronization utility for OS X with many uses. As an example, you can use Synchronize! Pro X to backup your OS X startup disk to another hard disk, so that the backup disk is bootable. Update your backup with "Fast scan" enabled, and it will be done 10x faster! Or you can sync your home folder with a file server, or your PowerBook, or a FireWire disk, so that the files on both are up-to-date.

Synchronize! Pro X is specifically engineered for OS X, taking advantage of the modern properties of the operating system, such as pre-emptive multitasking, and supporting the full capabilities of the file system, including 255-character Unicode file names and OS X file permissions. Files are copied at the maximum speed possible, using pre-emptive multitasking to full advantage. It makes bootable backups of OS X system disks, without logging in as 'root'. "Fast scan" makes updating a bootable backup incredibly quick, and real-time folder watching starts backups when files are changed. Old files can be archived rather than deleted. The status of backups can be monitored and accessed from any Web browser and email can be sent when backups happen, don't happen or have errors.

Synchronize! Pro X actions can be scheduled to be performed at night or at any preset time, once or periodically, without anyone present. Passwords can be supplied automatically for file server connections.

I'm worried that Qdea has abandoned SyncPro. The last update was in December 2017, and I'm already getting macOS warnings that the program is not up-to-date. I've had to switch to SuperDuper for making bootable backups, and I feel like it won't be long before I have to switch to a new program for my file backups. Thoughts?

The site says "The online store is no longer available". This app is soon going "no-ware"... :-D

I've been using Synchronize Pro and Synchronize Plus now for maybe close to 10 years. The Developer has always been supportive via email. It works well for me (I use Carbon Copy but it doesn't two "two-way" synchronization) and it a tool in my Mac bag that I can't do without. I appreciate the updates and will pay for good equipment or apps or software. Thank you. Patrick

My turn to put my two cents here. ;-) I wrote a few years ago that SyncPro was the best, it surely was an excessive statement. I must say it's just that I was used to it. Certainly it's not for its "gorgeous" GUI ;-) but at least it's clear. Chronosync is its best competitor for half the price and it's perfect for simple syncing, but gets very complicated when you try and set up things precisely — at least, it's not obvious to me. ;-) What I appreciate in SyncPro is the sync documents. Some might say that Chronosync has them too and I suppose that when you get used to its settings, it's ok. (What I like in Chronosync is the documents manager that allow to run multiple syncs in a row) One great thing about SyncPro is its wide compatibility: Intel/PPC since OS X 10.4! (that's why I still use it on my old machines — I don't have the latest version, though ;-) ) I only know of iBackup that can run in so many OSes, but it has a different approach. We all agree that Sync Pro is overpriced and they probably rely on their existing user base, hence their price policy. ;-) It's quite obvious that any potential new user will run for Chronosync instead, if they need complex syncing, or choose a free alternative such as backupList+, FolderWatch or else for simple tasks.

While I am sure that the developer has invested a lot of thought, time and energy into writing this app, similar to other commenters here, I must concur that $100 for a backup utility, and then another $50.00 or so every two years is outrageously expensive. By comparison, consider this . . . I have been using Carbon Copy Cloner -- which also makes very good bootable backups -- since at least November of 2010. At that same time, I made a donation to Bombich Software of $15.00. In December of 2012 I received a registration code for CCC 3.x I believe. As I recall, this was a free registration code, because I had previously donated to Bombich Software when CCC was still donationware. In October of 2014 I paid $20.00 to upgrade to CCC 4.x. In short, in just under five years, I have spent $35.00 for Carbon Copy Cloner, and I will probably spend another $20 when CCC 5.x comes out. No matter how you look at it, CCC has saved me loads of money, compared to what the Synchronize! Pro X developers are asking for. Now, obviously, I can't compare feature for feature between these two apps, but I will say that CCC has been rock solid over the years, and it allows me to be very selective about my scheduled backups. I can back up an entire hard drive -- which will be bootable -- I can backup just certain folders and files, I can protect certain files and folders on the destination drive so that they aren't written over the next time that CCC performs an automated backup, I can schedule multiple backups at different hours of the day, and different days of the week, etc. It's great. It gives me peace of mind. Perhaps Synchronize! Pro X can do all of this too. However, even if that is the case, why pay more than I really have to? Oh, and did I mention that Bombich support is quite good? I have had a number of email exchanges with them over the years. They see their customers as people, and not just as a source of revenue to milk. Enough said.

Another os x upgrade to Yosemite, so another "upgrade" to good old Sync Pro, lol. So glad I stopped shelling out $50 for this every 2 years after the initial $99 cost.

Unlike others I don't begrudge the price or upgrade policy per se. But I do expect premium level support in return for premium level pricing. Qdea badly fails: the product fails to work in my environment according to vendor claims that it should. A dump indicated an OSX module failed that SynX invoked. . The developer declined to provide *any* assistance. Rationale: "not his code" and he had not encountered the problem before. Astoundingly, he didn't even ask if the problem was reproducible or survived a reboot. Tough to imagine a more unhelpful or arrogant response. As others mention, there are comparable products with considerably better support and lower prices. Recommend that they be considered - not Qdea's .

I used Synchronize Pro for years, paid the money and it was ok. At the time, the dev asked for a renewal fee to give support because of a problem I had with the software (yes : no fee = no further support), I decided to find an alternative and to change. The solution was Cronosync. CS delivers the same functionality as SPro (or even more), has far better server grade functions via CS Agents. In the end, it was a huge step forward. And the pricing was far better: 5 License Pack for 160 $, 2 Agents for 20$ and I was done. Including free Upgrades forever! Thats the real deal. SPro was excellent in the 90s, but you will get the same 90s interface at the 90s pricing. The is an obsolete strategy, and it doesn't deserve to be supported. This software should move to the Appstore at 2.95 $, and it might be a success again. Chronosync is not in the Appstore, which is a customer benefit in terms of better pricing. Far better pricing.
