The popular Carbon Copy Cloner backup utility from Bombich Software has been updated to version 3.3.6. In the latest version, handling of damaged media has been improved so that read errors produce error dialogs more quickly, so the user can decide how to proceed. Other usability enhancements include a task scheduling setting option so that users can choose to be prompted to initiate the scheduled backup task instead of the task automatically starting, and a confirmation prompt that appears when the user tries to stop the verification stage of a block-copy operation. Version 3.3.6 fixes a bug introduced in 3.3.5. The release notes list all the changes, additions, and fixes. (Free, 4.3 MB)
