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.

What's new in version 5.1.12.5830

  • 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.
