Synk 5.2 for sync/backup
Decimus Software has released Synk 5.2, an update to its synchronization and backup software for Macintosh. Now available as a Universal Binary for native execution on both PowerPC and Intel based Macs, Synk 5.2 also adds AES encryption support for backups, a clearer and more compact interface, and a variety of other improvements and bug fixes. Synk can be used to make bootable backups of both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs, as well as synchronizing and backing up files and folders from your Mac with other networked Macs and PCs, or external hard drives (including iPods). It can automatically execute operations on a schedule, and provides extensive rule-based exclusion support and flexible configurability. Synk 5.2 is a free update to any paid user of Synk 5.x, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later. The shareware features an unrestricted 30-day trial period, and costs $20 to register for non-commercial use or $40 for commercial use.
