Carbon Copy Cloner 5.0.4 – Easy-to-use backup/cloning utility.

Carbon Copy Cloner 5.0.4

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!

What’s New

Version 5.0.4:

  • Fixed the resolution of the task badge on Retina displays on High Sierra
  • When creating a disk image, the disk image is now formatted as APFS if the source is an APFS volume. CCC also creates the Preboot and Recovery volumes on these disk images so that they can be restored using Disk Utility (in addition to being restorable via CCC)
  • Items marked as hidden now stay reliably hidden on an HFS+ destination on High Sierra
  • Addressed an issue in which a task that specifies a remote Macintosh as the source or destination would re-try the connection too aggressively if the remote host was unavailable
  • Fixed the free space indicator for APFS volumes when viewing a volume's details in CCC's sidebar
  • Implemented an alternative key installation method for cases where the remote Macintosh cannot accept files via scp
  • Improved the drawing of the task outlook table when viewing a task group
  • Minor enhancements to the CCC command-line utility
  • The source/destination contextual menu items now more consistently refer to the underlying volume for a disk image, and mounting/unmounting the underlying network volume for a disk image now works. Also tweaked the subtitle offered when an underlying network volume is not mounted. Previously it said '"{sharepoint}" is missing', now it says '"{sharepoint}" is not mounted'
  • The "Show Details" button in CCC notifications that are presented as alerts now correctly opens the Task History event in CCC
  • CCC now handles an undocumented Keychain Services error code that was occurring when CCC was trying to open its keychain for the first time (i.e. before the keychain yet exists). This resolves an issue that some High Sierra users might have encountered when trying to save a password to CCC's keychain
  • Addressed an issue in which a backup task could stall while "Cleaning up" if the task was configured to unmount the destination volume, and Spotlight was dissenting the volume unmount
  • Minor improvements to the Task Trend chart in the Task History window
