Synchronize! Pro X 6.0

Qdea on Saturday released Synchronize! Pro X 6.0, a major upgrade to its Mac OS X system backup and file synchronization utility. Version 6.0 brings three new features: "Fast scan", which uses FSEvents technology in Leopard to dramatically speed up the time it takes to update a backup. According to the company, the folder scan time for a typical update to a "Bootable System Backup" of Leopard is under a minute, compared to over 10 minutes without "Fast scan". The update also brings "Folder Watch", which tracks changes to the contents of a folder to trigger a backup. Two different folders on directly-mounted disks (does not work with remote disks) can be monitored, and a backup or synchronization can be started when changes occur to the contents of the folders.

The third major is feature is backup monitoring, which provides a web-based interface to monitor backups. An email can be sent when a backup happens, doesn't happen, has errors, or is missed. Using any web browser, users can also view the status of backups made over the last 30 days, including the log information for each backup.

Synchronize! Pro X, specifically engineered for Mac OS X, can make bootable backups of an Mac OS X system to another internal or external hard disk. The company claims that files are copied at the maximum speed possible, that old files can be saved in an archive instead of being deleted, and that backups can be automated so that they occur without user intervention -- even over a network.
