Carbon Copy Cloner
Carbon Copy Cloner backups are better than ordinary backups. Suppose the unthinkable happens while you’re under deadline to finish a project: your Mac is unresponsive and all you hear is an ominous, repetitive clicking noise coming from its hard drive. With ordinary backups, you’d spend your day rushing out to a store to buy a new hard drive and then sit in front of your computer reinstalling the operating system and restoring data. With Carbon Copy Cloner, your data and the operating system’s data are all preserved on a bootable volume, ready for production at a moment’s notice. When disaster strikes, simply boot from your backup and get back to using your Mac. At your convenience, replace the failed hard drive and then let CCC restore the OS, your data and your settings directly from the backup in one easy step. Any backup application can save your stuff. A CCC bootable backup will save your productivity too!
A completely redesigned interface that puts all of the most-used features at your fingertips.
The disk center, scheduled tasks, and the cloning console are integrated into a single window.
New simple interface mode allows you to clear the visual clutter and clone in three clicks. Source > Destination > Clone.
Tasks can be chained together to form more complex backup routines.
Edit scheduled tasks
Yes, finally, you can edit your scheduled tasks.
A task migration assistant will help you migrate your CCC 3.5 tasks to CCC 4.0.
Configure your email account settings once and use across multiple tasks. There are also new ways to customize CCC’s email notifications.
Run tasks hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or whenever you connect to your backup drive. Tasks can also be limited to running only on weekday or weekends. By default, tasks will not start if a laptop is running on battery power, and the task will start as soon as AC power is restored.
Administrators only need to authenticate once. Ever.
Authentication is no longer required every time you want to run a task. CCC will require authentication once for an administrative user, and then that user will have on-click access to starting, stopping, and configuring tasks. Non-admin users will be required to authenticate with admin credentials to start, stop, or modify backup tasks.
Quickly view when your tasks have run and if they were successful. Restrict the list by task name, source volume, destination volume, or run date. Receive details information and advice on tasks that resulted in errors.
Quickly learn more about your volumes or create a Recovery HD, all while easily seeing all tasks that involve the selected disk, as well as the last time each task ran.
Customize your backups
All of your favorite advanced features can still be accessed through the advanced settings mode.
Create a bootable clone of your hard drive, but also keep copies of your recently deleted and changed files — just in case.

Keep tabs on currently running backup tasks, create a new task, or run a scheduled task.
We now offer the most essential parts of our knowledge base in German, French, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.
Version 4.1.14 (4543)
• Addressed an issue introduced in an upcoming release to Sierra in which CCC was unable to mount recovery volumes to determine their OS versions.
• Improved the sanity check that CCC imposes when responding to a system clock change notification. The previous sanity check that we had imposed was not sufficiently avoiding rescheduling tasks when the system clock was changed to 2040 and then back to a sane time.
• Addressed an issue in which CCC would errantly mark tasks as suspended on systems with exceptionally slow startup disks.
• Fixed a logic issue that could cause a backup task to appear stalled in the “Creating an archive of the Recovery HD” phase in cases where the source recovery volume could not be unmounted.
• Addressed a race condition that could occasionally cause CCC’s helper tool to crash upon launch. While this was uncommon, it could occasionally lead to corruption of CCC’s keychain if that keychain was getting created upon loading the helper tool.
• Minor improvements to the CCC command-line utility.
Version 4.1.13 (4496)
• Addressed an issue in which CCC was unable to save passwords to its keychain after migrating the CCC configuration from another Mac.
• Fixed an issue in which CCC would periodically report that a task could not complete due to minor filesystem inconsistencies.
• Fixed an issue in which a scheduled task could resurrect itself if the user deleted it while it was running.
• Addressed a Sierra-specific issue in which CCC would not recognize a freshly-created recovery volume due to it being named incorrectly by Disk Utility.
• Implemented a workaround for cases where CCC’s privileged helper tool is installed but disabled by the system.
• We’ve received a couple reports of Sierra systems errantly setting the date forward to 2040, then immediately back to a sane value just a couple seconds later. Previously CCC would reschedule its tasks forward to 2040 in response to the clock change, but then not backwards to a sane time (because time isn’t supposed to go backwards, right?). This version of CCC now implements a sanity check to avoid rescheduling tasks that far into the future.
• Packet corruption that causes the connection to a remote Mac to be terminated is now handled more gracefully. CCC will now automatically restart the backup task.
