MetaSync is a program developed by Avid Technology. The most used version is 27.0.3, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 58 files and is usually about 31.79 MB (33,332,224 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 7. While about 35% of users of MetaSync come from the United States, it is also popular in Israel and United Kingdom.
