    Is RSyncX still around or used by anyone? All the download links I try are broken. I want to set up some jobs for backing up some files from my MBP to a mac mini I have periodically.

    My Mac skills are not all that great so manually setting up SSH sessions and configuring normal RSync is a bit beyond me. RSyncX looked like just the ticket.

    I already tried CCC but it always errors about authenticating and I went through all the security package install stuff.

    Rsync is still there obviously for the unix guys. But I don't know about its interface RsyncX...

    I'm not sure what RsyncX provides, maybe a GUI. If that's what you're after give Grsync a look see.

    Yeah, that's it. RsyncX is just an interface, nothing else. Rsync has been developed since ages by the unix world, no need to reinvent the wheel.
