Rsync For Mac

  • Acrosync for Mac does not spawn an external process to run the rsync protocol, therefore it is more robust and more information during the sync can be made available (such as the progress). An ssh client is built-in, so there is no need to setup password-less login for rsync over ssh.

  • Acrosync integrates a file system monitor that can detect file changes. Using the default backup mode, new or modified files will be automatically and almost instantly uploaded to the rsync server. File deletions can also be automatically propagated to the server if the 'propagate deletions' option is selected.


    Note that automatic sync is one way, i.e., from client to server. Acrosync does not support automatic download when files on server side change.

  • When this option is selected, Acrosync is capable of creating space-efficient incremental hourly backups on the server, taking advantage of the '--link-dest' option provided by rsync. This essentially turns any Mac/Linux/NAS into a Time Machine style backup server, without installing server software and at no extra cost.

  • Acrosync can connect to almost any Linux computer even without server-side configuration. This includes not just desktops but also servers, such as VPS or dedicated servers. A remote access account provided by most companies and universities works too. Or even a small form factor computer like Raspberry Pi.


    Sync with QNAP and Synology NAS boxes, as well as rsync storage providers such as rsync.net, HiDrive (paid accounts only), and Strongspace, is officially supported.

  • Acrosync for Mac comes with a 15 day trial with all features available.


    Acrosync for Mac runs on OS X 10.8+.

Rsync Gui For Mac Os X

Rsync For Mac Os X

Besides, like Mac OS X I am a fan of FreeBSD and it’s just the way I roll. The following is an example of a rsyncd.conf file that I have used in the past: # rsyncd.conf - Example file, see rsyncd.conf(5) # # # Set this if you want to stop rsync daemon with rc.d scripts pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid # Remember that rsync will supposedly. Rsync is a command-line utility shipped with every copy of Mac OS X. It originated from the UNIX/Linux world, where it has been part of most Linux distributions for many years. Acrosync for Mac is a new rsync client for OS X with an easy-to-use GUI and Dropbox-like automatic upload. It can be also be configured to create hourly incremental network backups similar to Time Machine, but without the need to install server software. Requires at least Mac OS X 10.4 or suitably patched rsync. I ran a new test, moved a Interarchy bookmark to my desktop, I know for a fact these break if they are copied sans resource forks. Running without the -E versus with the -E, there is a difference of 152 bytes in xfered data. The rsync version on my OS X (10.10.3) is an old one, 2.6.9. I've tried to upgrade it using Homebrew but I get the following error: Error: No available formula for rsync The new one is supposed to be 3.0+ and much quicker, but how do I install this without deleting the old one?
