Carbon Copy Cloner backups are better than ordinary backups. Suppose the unthinkable happens while you’re under deadline to finish a project: your Mac is unresponsive and all you hear is an ominous, repetitive clicking noise coming from its hard drive. With ordinary backups, you’d spend your day rushing out to a store to buy a new hard drive and then sit in front of your computer reinstalling the operating system and restoring data.
With Carbon Copy Cloner, your data and the operating system’s data are all preserved on a bootable volume, ready for production at a moment’s notice. When disaster strikes, simply boot from your backup and get back to using your Mac. At your convenience, replace the failed hard drive and then let CCC restore the OS, your data and your settings directly from the backup in one easy step.
Any backup application can save your stuff. A CCC bootable backup will save your productivity too!
- Addressed a race condition that could occasionally lead to a Recovery HD volume remaining mounted, which could lead to a dialog upon ejecting an external disk indicating that the disk contains multiple volumes. This was harmless, but could be confusing.
- The Import button is now correctly disabled if the Task Migration panel is presented with no tasks enabled for import.
- Fixed a bug in which the notice that a task is suspended would be presented detached from the main window. When overlooked (which is easy to do because the panel is obscured by the main window), CCC would be unable to activate or delete suspended tasks.
- Fixed an issue in which excluding a file or folder that had a newline character in its name would cause a backup task to fail.
