Editors' Review

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.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 5.1.8.5704

  • CCC will now proactively warn about configurations specific to T2 Macs that will produce non-bootable results, and configurations that will lead to problems with enabling encryption or modifying Startup Security settings.
  • Addressed an issue in which a Mojave-running remote Macintosh would fail (inconsistently) to correctly validate the code signature of CCC's file copier, thus causing backups to the remote Mac to fail.
  • Apple cache files that have been found to degrade task performance are now excluded from backup tasks by default.
  • CCC can now distinguish between a volume that is encrypted vs. a volume that has FileVault enabled. This is a subtle difference that is only apparent on T2-based Macs. CCC will no longer ask for a password for encrypted volumes that are not FileVault protected.
  • The "Shut down if previously off" setting is now allowed on a non-scheduled task as long as that task is part of a scheduled group.
  • Improved compatibility with VeraCrypt volumes.
