Bombich Software has released Carbon Copy Cloner 3.4.1, a significant update to its popular donationware disk cloning and backup utility. Version 3.4.1 — a quick fix from the 3.4 update — includes a large number of improvements, including the capability to back up to and from non-HFS+ network volumes, perform folder-to-folder backups, and restore data directly to the startup disk. Carbon Copy Cloner 3.4.1 also provides compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s full disk encryption, introduces the “Cloning Coach” for advice on particular configurations or errors, adds email and Growl notifications, reports on disk performance statistics, and can automatically prune archived files to save space. Other notable improvements include the capability to automount local, network, and encrypted volumes, plus the option to sleep, restart, or shut down the Mac at the end of a scheduled task. The update is rounded out by bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance improvements. (Free update, 5.6 MB, release notes)
Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard
Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.
