Clone, synchronize, backup. Schedule and forget it. Try it 'til you trust it.
The key to a successful backup plan is to actually do the backups regularly. When left to a human, the task often gets tacked on to the end of a very long list of other things to do. When you eventually have a catastrophe, the data is simply gone. You know that feeling -- you just lost six years of family photos. Your kids being born, their first birthdays, their first everything. The answer to this is consistent and regular backups, placed on a schedule and handled automatically by your computer.
CCC 3 features a new interface designed to make the cloning and backup procedure more intuitive and more responsive. Users have better control over what gets backed up, and are provided with detailed information about the progress of their backup. In addition to general backup, CCC can also clone one hard drive to another, copying every single block or file to create an exact replica of your source hard drive. CCC's block-level copy offers the absolute best fidelity in the industry!
What's new in this version:
- Implemented rsync 3.0.0 to provide even greater fidelity when backing up using the incremental backup method
- Improved the wording of options in the interface to make it more clear what CCC is doing
- Implemented "bootability" checks -- CCC now reports whether the backup volume will be bootable based upon the options you have chosen
- CCC now offers a dialog box to opt out of a backup task that is scheduled to occur when the target volume is reattached ... See all new features »
