|Carbon Copy Cloner version 5.1.19 Update (release notes)|
Available via in-app update for CCC 5.x users or full download at bombich.com/download.
Info from the June 17, 2020 Carbon Copy Cloner v5.1.19 release notes:
- This update addresses a handful of failure conditions of Apple's APFS replication utility which CCC is using temporarily in response to a bug that Apple introduced in macOS 10.15.5. We have also improved the task configuration workflow for new backup tasks, and we've added some documentation around this functionality: Cloning macOS System volumes with Apple Software Restore, Creating and restoring data-only backups, and Troubleshooting APFS Replication.
- Orphaned System volumes are now handled more proactively when selected as a source or destination. Orphaned System volumes arise when you either delete or erase the "Backup - Data" volume in Disk Utility without deleting/erasing the whole volume group when prompted. System volumes are unsuitable for user data, but some folks manage to get data onto them anyway (it doesn't help that Finder allows you to copy data to them). CCC can now help you migrate content from an orphaned System volume source, and will insist that you erase an orphaned System destination before proceeding with a task.
- CCC no longer excludes 1Password by default. We added the exclusion in light of a recommendation by the folks at Agile software, however we got some feedback that people would prefer to exclude this manually, if at all.
The Backblaze ".bzvol" folder is now removed from the root of the destination volumes at the end of an initial APFS replication. This should resolve issues in which Backblaze has identification sisues after an initial clone is performed.
CCC has many useful features, including Bootable Backups and Clone Recovery HD.
"The macOS Installer creates a proprietary recovery volume on your startup disk that can be used to reinstall macOS. CCC is the only backup software that archives and clones this recovery volume. We simplify this complex procedure into a single click!"
