Sync3! is a jewel. IÕve been a Mac user for 20 years and since the
advent of OS X in 2000 finding elegant, well-executed, and thoughtful
software for the Mac has become a rare surprise. Sync3! is all those
things. After using it for 20 minutes I was in love. ItÕs obvious to
the user how to use it from the moment you open it (ALL software should
be like this, but MOST software is not), and itÕs quick and itÕs
extremely useful. It performs a function so basic and useful I am amazed
more people donÕt realize they need it. In the old days of the classic
Mac we had SymantecÕs CopyAgentÑ a great little utility which did
largely the same thing (i.e., copied only changed items, and on a
schedule). And it did it solidly and wellÑjust as Sync3! does it. This
program makes an ideal and robust backup program too. The author
obviuously appreciates the little touches and was writing something he
or she would want to use, because Sync3! is loaded with thoughtfulness.
Like the option to add an Applescript before and/or after running a
backup! What a lovely touch! The log is readable if you wish to read it.
AND EVERY BUTTON ACTUALLY WORKS! And when scheduled copies are due, they
actually happen! I am in heaven! I tried literally dozens of choices
from MacUpDateÕs website and every one until Sync3! was a giant
disappointment in some fundamental way. My only suggestion to the author
is that I would love to be able to sometimes run the schedule hours
apart instead of days apart. But I thoroughly love the software!
