  • Enabled "Fast scan" by default for bootable backups.

Version 6.0.1 May 2, 2008

  • Fixed a problem which caused Fast Scan to copy files which do not need to be copied.

Version 6.0 April 25, 2008

  • Added "Fast scan", which speeds up folder scans enormously on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and later.
  • Added folder watching, so that real-time backups can be triggered when folder contents change. See the Start Options for details. Available on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and later.
  • Added backup monitoring, so that email notification for a backup that occurs, has errors, is missed, or doesn't complete is sent. Status and logs for backups can be accessed using any web browser. Emails are sent even if the computer scheduled to do the backup is inoperative.
  • Added copying of ACLs (Access Control Lists), which provide an enhanced method of allowing and denying access to files.
  • Added a separate display of the name of the file to be opened in "Start Options" and "Completion Options".

  • The top-level folder of a sync or backup is no longer removed when "Move files" is checked.

Version 5.1.3 November 5, 2007

  • Fixed a problem which caused the second of two bootable backups executed in succession to not run.

  • Fixed a problem which caused a warning for a non-GUID partition to always occur.

Version 5.1.1 October 26, 2007

  • Fixed a problem which caused Synchronize! Pro X to crash on startup on some Tiger systems due to a dynamic load (dyld) error.
  • This version does not save QuickLook previews. When the dyld error is corrected, this capability will be added again.

Version 5.1 October 25, 2007

  • Made changes for compatibility with Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5). This version of Synchronize! Pro X requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
  • Added a window which shows the current system disk. On Leopard, don't assume that the disk icon in the top-right of the Desktop is the system (boot) disk, because it may not be. Instead, open Synchronize! Pro X and use the Windows menu to choose "System Disk".
  • Setup documents are now packages, so that QuickLook can be supported on Leopard. The conversion to a package happens automatically when the document is saved.
  • Fixed a problem which could cause a "too many files open" error if many backups were run over a long period of time.
  • Fixed a problem which prevented the computer from shutting down at the completion of a backup or synchronization.
  • Disk mounting should be less fragile, because volume UUID's are now used to identify and mount a disk.
  • Connections to remote disks no longer hang the application while the connection is made, and the connection attempt can be cancelled at any time.
  • A warning is now issued when the volume partition scheme isn't the Apple-supported "GUID Partition Scheme". Some Intel Macs won't boot from a disk with the "Apple Partition Method" scheme, while others will.
  • Spotlight is inhibited from indexing files on a disk to which files are being copied, which improves file copying performance.

Version 5.0.7 March 25, 2007

Version 5.0.6 February 14, 2007

Version 5.0.5 February 5, 2007

  • Do not use version 5.0.5, because it may crash.

  • Added a warning when using a PC-format disk with the default "Comparing files..." settings, with an offer to change to the correct settings.
  • Changed installation of AutoSync so that the application permissions are always set to Read/Write for all, so that another admin user can also install without running into a problem because the AutoSync app can't be replaced.
  • "Ignore ownership" is automatically unchecked for the source and destination volume if "Copy owner/group" is checked in the "Permissions" window in the Start Options.
  • Fixed a problem which could cause a "too many files open" error when syncing with a Windows (SMB) computer or server.
  • Fixed a crash which could occur when choosing a folder.
  • Added a running count of the number of folders created, so that when this step takes a while, progress can be seen.

  • Fixed a problem in which files deleted due to "Sync deleted files" were not archived.
  • Fixed a problem which occurred when "Copy owner & group" is checked but "Run as root" is not, which caused an unnecessary attempt to copy permissions.

  • "Show a window announcing completion" is now enabled by default.
  • "Use generic icons for network volumes" is now enabled by default.

Version 4.0.2 June 3, 2005

Version 3.5 November 19, 2004

  • Added an optional completion window when a backup completes. See "Completion Options" in the Options menu.

Version 3.4.2 May 16, 2004

  • Fixed a crash which could occur when opening the application.
  • Fixed a problem in AutoSync - it sometimes issued an error message when it shouldn't.

  • The Files To Copy window is substantially improved. Changes include being able to open any number of items in the list, showing icons for files and folders, faster generation of the window and very rapid scrolling.
  • The Files To Copy window now has a "Don't copy" button which allows specific files and folders to be excluded from future operations.
  • The path to any existing file or folder in the Files To Copy list can be seen by command-clicking the item's icon. The path can be copied by option-clicking the icon. Textual paths are available in a standard form and a special form suitable for Terminal (special characters are escaped).

  • Added criteria for including and excluding specific files. The entire path is used to identify the files, so files of the same name are distinguished.

  • The path to a file or folder included by "Which are in the list" is shown when the mouse is held over the folder name.
  • Added the ability to automatically prune old archived files by age.
  • Fixed a problem which could cause a backup or sync to fail because the operating system wouldn't allow a temporary file to be created.

Version 3.3.1 March 12, 2004

  • Added "Open without starting" to File menu, to facilitate changing sync setups that can't be cancelled because the countdown time is set to zero.

  • Added the ability to change the order of the Multiple Items list.
  • Fixed a crash which could occur when using "Multiple Items" to sync individual files.

  • Added "PC Compatibility" option. This prevents resource forks from being copied to a PC-formatted disk.
  • Speeded up the folder scan.
  • Fixed a problem checking "ignore permissions" for a setup type = "Backup".
  • Fixed a problem which prevented empty folders from being deleted after a move.
