    Keeping clock synced more frequently


    I run Windows 10 using Parallels on my Mac. But when I log in, the time is out of sync. After leaving Windows open for about an hour, the time syncs correctly. But this is too slow.

    Are there any free apps that can sync the time more frequently?

    DS Clock can sync every hour.

    I need something that syncs more frequently than that. I don't want to have to wait an hour before I use Windows 10. My app I use is time sensitive.

    Then maybe TimeSync set via task scheduler. I have no idea how to create the scheduled task.

    How much difference in the times? Could it be Windows isn't reading the motherboard's BIOS to get the same machine time as Mac OS X or the newer macOS?

    Found this.

    Time-Sync Download | Speed-Soft

    Runs as a service. Adjusts every 30 seconds.

    This is the 21st century, right? Clocks are quite accurate.
    Over here the typical PC clock-sync only "moves" the clock a few seconds on each update.

    So ... something is wrong with your PC clock. You'd expect it to stay within a few seconds a month even without sync.

    I reckon it's to do with how a Mac handles time compared with Windows. A bit like the "system clock is wrong" issue when dual booting Linux and Windows where both need to use local time or the clock will be out by an hour or more.

    I know nothing about Macs though.
