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!
- The "Use strict volume identification" setting has always been disabled when the destination lacks a unique identifier (because the setting isn't applicable in that case). Now we also uncheck that box in those cases to avoid any confusion about whether that setting will be applied.
- Minor adjustments to the timing of snapshot creation on the source at the beginning of the task. These accommodate archiving of the source volume's helper partitions and also resolve potential conflicts when several tasks are started simultaneously that use the same source volume.
- The postflight destination unmount subtask is no longer skipped when a task is aborted due to a time limit overrun.
- Fixed an issue related to manually mounting an encrypted source or destination volume (when clicking on the source/destination selector).
- Fixed a cosmetic issue in which custom filters with multiple suffixes (e.g. '*.tar.gz') would appear to not be applied to matching files in the Task Filter window, despite actually matching those files during task run time.
