I use ChronoSync for Backup. It is very reliable, fast and stable. Lot of features...
I have to restore my iTunes-Library two times and CS does a very good job.
From time to time there ist an update by the developer, nice job.
A clear recommendation!

AWESOME guys, my new Mac pro finally showed up. I do a
lot of weird network backups at odd hours and thanks to your
ChronoAgent, I can take advantage of the new Mac's power saving and
actually let it go to sleep without worrying about missing some
backup. Your interface is well thought out and your stuff is not
resource hungry. Awesome. Oh, and reasonably priced. Thanks,
really. Mike

I use it since some years and the result is perfect !

I had recently a problem with the 'advanced rules' , a little too sophisticated for me ;-(
Their support was fast and absolutely effective.

We just want to say that your product is incredible.

We first
read out about it in Norman Hollyn's book for assistant editors and
have since made it the lynchpin of moving data for our Video Post
Production operations everyday. You have saved us countless hours in verifying data that gets copied in multiple places everyday.

We love, love, love using ChronoSync. I'll tell you why.

My wife and I run a small graphic and web design business here in our small town of Tobaccoville, NC. After a "perfectly good" hard drive failed, we really wanted to beef up our backup strategy to decrease the time between backups. We also wanted something that would work in tandem with a cloud backup service, CrashPlan, without causing issues, and eventually allow us to develop a fully bootable local / local-offsite monthly swap strategy.

ChronoSync allows us not only to have backups made every day, but we can back up both of our computers and our three external hard drives, right over the network. The other thing I love about these backups is that what is copied to the backup drive is an exact copy of what you've got on your original. This means there is no proprietary software you have to have in order to utilize your backup in case something goes wrong. This purist type thinking is what lead me to ChronoSync. I love being able to look at that backup drive and see everything I did yesterday safe and sound, and being an exact copy of my main drive.

Furthermore, as of this writing, Econ Technologies is still providing versions of ChronoSync that work with our older operating systems, Mac OS 10.5 and 10.6. Fantastic!

The guys at Econ Technologies have been extremely helpful in "getting us going" with the software. We had a few issues in the beginning with our settings and general setup over our network, but support was quick to respond via email, and now we don't even notice when the backups run, even though they're going right in the middle of our work day.

Thank you Econ Technologies, and please keep up the good work!!

I had a recent very positive experience with Econ support. I submitted a bug report for 4.4.2. Econ support response was prompt and over the course of 3-4 weeks, exchanged emails with me, worked with me, providing numerous builds and betas of 4.4.3, looking at how my sync doc options were set and so on. Also providing additional diagnostics in their builds to provide more detailed info on the error.

Eventually resolved, and I believe the fix is actually in 4.4.3.

I have been using Chrono going back to early version 3 days, and this latest experience is why I will remain a loyal customer. And add to that, they have remained true to their word, and I've never been charged an upgrade fee, EVER, even when upgrading from version 3 to 4. You don't find that too often in this business.

Lastly if anyone has any concerns about whether CS can scale, I use CS to run daily syncs across 3TB and 4TB volumes with well over a quarter of a million files a volume. I rely on CS to make rotating backups for off site storage.

Thanks again to the Econ support team.

Version 4.4.3 is a significant update that fixes a handful of bugs. Full details can be found on the ChronoSync Release Notes page on our website.

In this version:

Implemented a fix for a bug in Mavericks that would cause a folder scan to fail with a fatal error if the folder did not have read permissions.
Implemented a fix for a bug in Mavericks that would cause the application to crash when processing temporary files with a leading tilde character in their name.
Fixed a bug that could cause unnecessary package aggregation if a folder containing packages had its contents change while it was being scanned.
Fixed a bug that could result in a "File Not Found" error when restoring from a ZIP compressed file in a target's archive.
Fixed a bug that would not generate proper errors when an attempt to create a unique filename in a folder failed.
Eliminated some unnecessary archive related data that was being stored in saved synchronizer documents.
Fixed a bug that could cause errors when moving files to a target's archive.
Fixed a bug that could cause incorrect version numbers to be assigned to files in a target's archive.
Fixed several bugs that could cause the application to crash when trying to report to the user that an exception occurred.
Fixed a bug that could cause the application to crash when posting entries to a synchronizer's log.
Fixed an erroneous tooltip in the progress sheet user interface.
Implemented more efficient unicode filename handling.

I am a photographer and use a macbook pro and an iMac for my editing & photo storage. The need to have a multiple back up system is paramount. I use ChronoSync as well as ChronoAgent on both systems and not only back up multiple copies on to external hard drives, but also sync my two computers. ChronoSync works great! I am able to automatically back up both systems as well as sync then using these tools. The program works great and the customer service is incredible. I recently updated to Maverick OS and had an issue. I emailed Ryan & his team and received a fix in no time. They are extremely responsive and helpful. I have tried a number of back up systems and nothing compares to ChronoSync. I highly recommend these products.
