Carbon Copy Cloner version 6.0 Update Release Notes
(Update: later in May they released CCC version 6.0.1 with many fixes.)
Info from the May 18, 2021 Carbon Copy Cloner v6.0 release notes:
  • New file copier that offers faster performance and powers several of the new features noted below.

  • Compare: Offers a visual comparison of your task's source and destination, and provides details if the differences are the result of a task filter.

  • The new Dashboard offers one-click access to starting, stopping and monitoring your CCC tasks, plus details about recent task activity. The Dashboard also gives you a heads up to snapshot disk usage on the startup disk.

  • Postflight verification of files that were copied by the current backup task.

  • Ad hoc verification of files that were copied by the current task — source or destination.

  • The Snapshot Navigator allows you to step through older versions of your backups and get a preview of your files as they were at specific points in time.

  • Quick Update decreases the length of the backup by comparing a reduced list of folders provided by the macOS FSEvents service.

  • New scheduling option to run a task when a threshold of modifications have been made on the source.

  • Backup audit shows what was copied by your backup tasks, and why.

  • Dark Mode support.

  • Task Preview: See what changes CCC is going to make before actually making them.

  • Per-task control over the file copier's CPU usage.

  • You can temporarily pause a backup task.

  • A new, cleaner user interface. We reorganized the main window to make it smaller while making many of the controls and font sizes larger.

  • Refined Simple Mode - quitting and reopening CCC to switch modes is no longer necessary.

  • More detailed progress indication while a task is running, including a time remaining estimate.

  • File processing and transfer rates are now charted live during backup tasks.

  • Items that cause task errors can be excluded directly from the Task History Errors table.

  • CCC's Task Filter now offers support for respecting macOS "backupd" exclusions (i.e. exclusions defined for Time Machine).
  • Also see CCC 6: "Faster backups, better accountability, Dark Mode, and so much more".
