Carbon Copy Cloner version 5.1.20 Update
Available via in-app update for CCC 5.x users or full download at bombich.com/download.
Info from the July 21, 2020 Carbon Copy Cloner version 5.1.20 release notes:
"In macOS 10.15.6, Apple has resolved the firmlink creation issue that was introduced in macOS 10.15.5. This update to CCC removes the workaround that we added in CCC 5.1.18 to address that issue. For 10.15.6 users, CCC will now revert to using its own file copier for establishing new bootable backups. 10.15.5 users will be encouraged to apply the 10.15.6 update, although the aforementioned workaround will still work for 10.15.5 users."
