Easy to create and select a new project for each job
New collections allow grouping of related projects
A new job will have all files selected with a green tag.
Choose which files will be in the job by adding or removing files or folders using the + and - buttons
Then update the job with any changes. Or create a new job with these files.
During the copy the source browser shows copy and verification status for each file.
As each file is copied the status goes yellow, then green after verification.
By default in Destination paths the base token is not shown. Now the top folder is always included, but not the volume name. If required you can click Edit Paths and manually add the volume or base tokens.
YoYotta creates both MD5 and xxHash checksums simultaneously
Every job will have industry standard MD5 and the newer xxHash checksums, the CSV and MHL reports will contain both checksums.

YoYotta Server provides a web view of your projects. YoYotta systems can connect to the server and sync project metadata. This allows the workflow for large projects to be split across multiple systems in different locations.
The Server is available for an annual subscription, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
v3 is stable and ready for production use, please download it and send us your feedback.
All the new buttons should have tooltips, if anything is unclear contact email@example.com.
We have made v3 a free update for existing YoYotta licenses. So if you like it please recommend it to others !
v3 doesn't replace your existing v2 install.
So if you want to run v2 for a while, it's projects, presets and preferences will be kept separate.
There is a separate software update feed for v3 and the v2 app will still be available.
The Transcode option along with macOS 10.13+ supports encoding to HEVC.
Dark Mode is supported with macOS 10.14 Mojave.
Projects are stored inside Collections.
Create Collections for each client, year, type of work or just keep all your projects in one collection.
To get started open the Project Browser or add a source and open the Source Browser.
Then add a new Collection and a new Project.
Collections and Projects are stored in /Users/Shared/YoYotta
v3 stores indexes for every file plus a lot more metadata, so we suggest running on an SSD Mac
The 2018 Mac mini is ideal for YoYotta v3 more details here
v3 uses a new project format so you will need to export your v2 projects and import them into v3.
Run v2 (604) or newer and follow these instructions Export project assets to export a project CSV.
Do this for each project that you want to move to v3.
Run v3 (60) or newer
Drag and drop the CSV project file onto the YoYotta app icon in the Dock.
Or drag and drop the CSV file onto the job table.
The Source Browser will open, select or create a Project and click Store Index.
