This week Six Colors is sponsored by Econ Technologies, the makers of ChronoSync. ChronoSync is three utilities in one: It synchronizes folders, backs up files and folders, and can create a bootable backup. It works on internal and external drives, other Macs (via the clever ChronoAgent connection utility), and even network or NAS volumes.
In addition to ChronoSync and ChronoAgent, Econ Technologies makes InterConneX, a free file storage and management app for iOS that can work with ChronoAgent and ChronoSync to share, browse, and transfer files. That’s a recurring theme with Econ Technologies products: They’re built to work well together to perform useful tasks with your files and folders.
Econ Technologies is different from many other companies in that it offers free upgrades, free pre- and post-sales technical support, and continuous improvement and development of its products. ChronoAgent 1.5 will be released shortly, with 64-bit performance and several new configuration options. ChronoSync has been in development since 2002, and the company has never charged for a single update.
This week, Six Colors readers can get a bundle of ChronoSync and ChronoAgent for $40, 20 percent off of the standalone price.
