ChronoSync for Mac

09 February 2021

Reliable backups, drive clones, and folder synchronizations.

What is ChronoSync for Mac

ChronoSync is the professional choice for periodic backups, bootable drive clones, and folder and file synchronizations. Target any device or folder visible in Finder such a volume, thumb drive, NAS, disk image, select cloud services, server or (with ChronoAgent) another Mac! Directly connect to Amazon S3 and Backblaze B2 cloud services and SFTP file servers. ChronoSync replaces your backup utility, drive clone utility, and folder sync utility with a single, powerful application. Get push notifications of your syncs sent to your phone with ChronoMonitor. Add InterConneX (free for iOS) and use ChronoSync to push files and folders to your iDevice.

Used to be my favorite! Unfortunately they disabled bootable backup ability in the new version(s), but Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper! still have the ability.

Besides its working powerfully, flexibly, and reliably, the customer service is outstanding. I had an issue with disappearing folders -- user error once I figured it out, or rather when Tom figured it out. In a series of maybe 4 lengthy email exchanges, he diagnosed the problem and offered several possible solutions. ChronoSync does offer enormous complexity and power if you want it, but it can be used very simply if you prefer. I have a container (batch program) that runs 6 customized tasks in two different locations. I was just one step beyond my understanding of how it works, but their superb help support is beyond anything I've seen elsewhere.

Poor customer support for a problem allegedly fixed in the latest release. An additional issue cropped up too. Developer rudely refused to look into either problem in spite of following all their instructions, then providing logs and screenshots. Avoid.

I have been an Apple Consultant for nearly 40 years and I have to say ChronoSync is AMAZING. It has been in my list of necessary software for my clients since you first released it. Every time I throw a task at it, ChrosoSync comes through with flying colors. Today the task was to copy files from a server via SSH to a local drive, then archive the files to another offsite server. It couldn't have gone any easier or straight forward! The Analyze and Rules sections help a great deal with only backing up what was needed and skipping any live databases. The Color tagging of tasks and containers made it very easy to follow in the Organizer. Grouping each task in a Container made reporting simple. Lastly, ChronoMonitor let us know that everything was working. Thank you to everyone at econ for creating AND innovating such an outstanding product.

It will do much more, but I use ChronoSync for one thing: Archiving files, photos and videos onto an external drive and replicating the original to several other drives. With minimal setup, the process is one-click easy and super fast. A great product to have if you're paranoid about losing your electronic valuables. The bonus: New versions are easily installed and don't cost you a cent.

If you are upgrading to Catalina, it is extremely important you follow the recommendations from Econ Technologies regards using ChronoSync (CS). They sent an email to all registered users, they point to a Catalina specific tech note at https://www.econtechnologies.com/chronosync/TN-CS-Catalina-Update.html READ it, heed it. Significant changes to APFS in Catalina. We should remind ourselves that Econ Tech does NOT charge for software updates, even though with every release of macOS, significant changes from Apple are made that require significant testing and changes in CS; kudos to Econ. Personally, I always do clean installs of a major macOS change; yes, it means more time reinstalling apps, configs and data, but having done hundreds of osx/macOS updates on countless mac models going back to 10.0.0, this method has proven to be the best in terms of eliminating post update issues.

Hard to add anything to all the positive reviews... ;-) What I like most is the transparent multi-sync procedure (when you set up multiple sync documents and launch them with a container), it also connects to remote drives with no hiccup. If ChronoSync meets some error, it generally offers a way to fix it either by changing a setting for you or by ignoring the offending file. The only thing I really regret is that I can't find any place where it would tell me how much data has to be synced — or was actually synced — as Synchronize Pro X did.

I'am currently using Chronosync to backup some of my data to external drives. It finctions perfectly with an high level of customisation (exemple: I use flags and comments to select my files). Now I have in project to - synchronize my data with Apple's iCloud Drive (without Chronosync) - backup my data to the Cloud with Chronosync + Backblaze B2 (or maybe Wasabi). I'm testing... I had some questions but EconTechnologies was as usual very fast and efficient to give me responses...
