Carbon Copy Cloner 5.1.12 – Easy-to-use backup/cloning utility
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!
- Fixed an issue in which folders in the Task Filter window were missing a disclosure triangle, making it difficult to exclude subfolders.
- Improved OneDrive and Dropbox placeholder file detection.
- If you’ve deleted a Catalina System volume from a destination volume group, CCC now allows the selection of the orphaned Data volume as a destination, and will recreate the volume group as necessary.
- Made a couple small adjustments that should make HFS+-to-APFS conversions more reliable, particularly for slower destination devices.
- CCC 5.1.10 addressed an issue in which a remote Mac could go to sleep between CCC’s archive management and file copying requests, but we found that change to be inadequate. This update improves upon that fix.
- Fixed a race condition in which the sort criteria popup menu in the Task History window wasn’t getting populated if the task history window was opened very soon after launching CCC.
- Added “files copied” to the history output of the CCC command-line tool.
- When backing up to a disk image on a network volume, postflight unmounting of the network volume is now a little more reliable in cases where the diskimages-helper service is being stubborn.
- When CCC creates a System volume on the destination, the new System volume is now formatted as case-sensitive if the sibling Data volume is formatted as case-sensitive.
- Intel, 64-bit processor
- OS X 10.10 or later
