I've been a Chronosync user for years to keep all my personal files and media backed up to multiple drives, and now I use it along with Chronosync Agent to back it up over the internet to a remote location, essentially my own personal "cloud".

I personally wrote Econ Technologies just to tell them not only how reliable Chronosync has been for me, but it's always done exactly what I expected it to. I think many people take that for granted, which is a mistake. How easily we forget how problematic information syncing has been over the past decade even for apps made by giants like Apple and Google. The configuration options are about as powerful as you could want them to be, and are very clear, something I can't say about most apps with advanced options. Another post here mentioned another backup product (which doesn't have quite the same purpose) that "just works". Funny, that's how I would describe Chronosync.

The last thing I'll say though is that Econ seems to value its user base. Unlike most mature apps, I don't get dinged on a regular basis to pay for "new versions" that just contain bug / design fixes, minor enhancements, prettier graphics or added compatibility that should have fundamentally been there in the first place. Can't say that about the majority of apps I've purchased.

BEWARE! Installing Mira versions 1.3.1 or 1.3.2 on Leopard may render your Mac UNUSABLE. I had been one of the registered users waiting for Mira to work properly in Leopard. When 1.3.1 came out in September I eagerly installed it, only to find that it immediately stopped ALL MOUSE INPUT from working, even after rebooting my mac and trying different mice in different USB ports. The only way I was able to remedy the problem was by borrowing a friend's MacBook (lucky I was able to do this) and logging into mine via shared desktop, where I was able to control the mouse cursor. After uninstalling Mira, mouse control returned. When version 1.3.2 came out in October, I thought this problem would have been addressed, but it is not.

I posted a warning on the Twisted Melon forum about this serious problem in early October. The following day the forum was no longer available, according to a message on their website that a 'database corruption' occurred and that the forum would be restored very soon. To this day, this hasn't been done, so my only option is to warn other users here.
