Carbon Copy Cloner for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / March 25, 2015

Carbon Copy Cloner makes drive backup straightforward and accessible, even if you're uncomfortable with performing this process.

Pros

Excellent tutorial: Carbon Copy Cloner's tutorial completely removes any intimidation you may have from performing this type of operation.

Clean interface: Carbon Copy Cloner is easy to use and navigate.

Smart updates feature: This feature greatly reduces the time and storage space needed to perform a backup. The Smart Updates seamlessly works to only update files that you've actually changed since the last time you backed up your system.

Cons

High cost: The only real drawback to the app is that at $40, it is expensive. There are free tools out there that allow you to back up your system fairly easily.

Bottom Line

Although costly, Carbon Copy Cloner certainly performs its function well. It is easy to use and backs up your system in a fast and efficient manner.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Carbon Copy Cloner for Mac 4.0.6.

What's new in version 5.1.15.5916

  • Made an adjustment to how CCC copies the contents of the System volume when that volume is getting updated to avoid removing any content from the destination System volume that doesn't belong there. While it is inappropriate to ever have content on the destination System volume (CCC, for example, would not allow you to configure a task in that manner), Finder allows the modification of that volume, so conceivably someone could copy content to that volume without realizing the error. In general, you should avoid storing anything on your macOS backup volume that is unrelated to the source volume. If you want to store other content on your backup disk, create a dedicated volume for that content.
  • CCC detects a couple more error conditions that are commonly encountered during APFS conversion on macOS Catalina and either works around them to make the conversion succeed or presents them with more accurate advice.
