Casselberry, Florida – ChronoSync 4.8.4 brings significant improvements to APFS backups as well as improved reliability to scheduled backups and syncs. As a result of Econ Technologies’ devotion to analyzing and testing APFS under High Sierra, syncs, backups and bootable backup performance and reliability is taking a big step forward.
Package File analysis performance is significantly faster in ChronoSync 4.8.4 which directly reduces the time needed to scan for changed files. Furthermore, APFS bootable backups now start up the first time more reliably, Preboot and Recovery volumes are updated more reliably and even Archiving package files is faster.
In addition, unique issues have been revealed whereby certain Mac/OS combinations don’t provide the same signaling and wake-to-sync behavior that has been tried and tested for generations of ChronoSync under macOS. As a result, new techniques are now in place to ensure scheduled backups run as expected on these newer platforms.
Numerous other issues addressed in ChronoSync 4.8.4 are related to the Validator performance, general App UI performance and working around inconsistent SMB File Sharing behavior on High Sierra.
