Att. SyncroArts: Loosing VocAlign auth. when using CCC?

VocAlign's pref- and auth. files has always been
a bit flaky, but has anyone else lost their
auth when doing backup using Carbon Copy Cloner?
And I'm scared of using programs like Cocktail and Onyxx,
even when I really need to clean the cache.
Coz VocAlign has no grace period when the auth is down,
and I must rely on a fast e-mail response.

I wish they could get it on iLok soon..
Syncro, read this!

No, and their system is pretty fast anyway. The only real drag is that you must run PT to deauth. I've forgotten this when dismantling systems.

Yeah, their server is usually online, but I had downtime last week
because of it.
In the light of Murphy's law, I think they should get on iLok.
I know they have a lot of users.
Not that Murphy's doesn't apply to PACE, but you know what I mean..


BTW hociman, so you use CCC? Do you repair permissions
within the program?

i've found the PC version to be a bit flakey too - but there's no ilok for pc (?).

It does make me wonder if SyncroArts went bust (let's hope not) what would happen to our software.

I have sent them numerous requests, they say their users are not asking for iLok and they see no need for it.

Yes. I also do not breathe on a system while CCC is running. I was doing a CCC once, moved the mouse, and my CCC was NFG. Once I start CCC, I don't even touch the keyboard or mouse until it says its done.

If SynchroArts went to iLok, they should join the ZDT program. Doing it half-way (WAVES) is kind of pointless. I still auth WAVES to disk for this reason.
