Acrosync has released Acrosync for Mac, a new rsync client with a graphical user interface (GUI) that also supports Dropbox-like automatic upload and Time Machine style incremental backups.
Acrosync for Mac is a folder synchronization tool based on the rsync protocol, so it can sync with any computer or device that has rsync installed, such as Mac and Linux computers, NAS boxes, and VPS or dedicated servers, or even rsync storage providers. Users may connect via SSH or Rsyncd and much more.
Acrosync’s interface lets you set up multiple sync or backup profiles. After the first sync, on subsequent syncs only the new and modified files will be transferred, and, for each modified file, only the changed parts will be transferred, thanks to the clever rsync algorithm.
Like Dropbox, Acrosync for Mac also integrates a built-in file system monitor that can constantly watch local folders and automatically start transferring new or modified files once they’re detected. Full backups can be configured to be performed hourly, daily, or weekly at scheduled times.
Acrosync requires Mac OS X 10.8 and above. It normally costs US$49.99 but it available at the product web site (https://acrosync.com) for $29.99 until Nov. 30. A demo is available for download.
