|Carbon Copy Cloner version 5.1.11 Update (release notes)|
Available via in-app update for CCC 5.x users or full download at bombich.com/download.
Info from the August 30th, 2019 Carbon Copy Cloner v5.1.11 release notes:
If you missed it August 20th, here's CCC 5.1.10 release notes with Catalina known issues.
- Relaxed the restriction related to cloning a newer OS than what the Mac is currently booted from. CCC issues a warning, indicates clearly that the destination may not be bootable, but now you're welcome to proceed in this scenario if you have a particular need to create a non-bootable backup of the source system.
- Fixed an issue in which you'd be prevented from backing up to a new disk image stored on the startup disk.
- Fixed the "Open Disk Utility" and "Open Terminal" menu items in the Utilities menu for Catalina users.
- Addressed an edge case in which CCC would errantly report that it was unable to bless the destination because it's in the same APFS container as the current startup disk.
- Fixed some quirky behavior of the email password text field in the Preferences window.
- Addressed a couple errant Cloning Coach messages.
- Addressed a race condition that could cause the CCC User Agent to lose its connection to CCC's privileged helper tool after applying an update to CCC. This would lead to an empty task list in the CCC menubar, a lack of task started/finished notifications, and a failure to present the mini task progress window.
- Addressed an issue in which CCC would not create the APFS helper partitions on an APFS destination when restoring from an HFS+ volume, resulting in a non-bootable volume.
