Bombich Software has released Carbon Copy Cloner 3.5.2 with a change in notification support for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion users, shifting from Growl to Notification Center. (Mike Bombich details the reasons for the switch and offers a workaround to generate Growl notifications before or after scheduled backups.) The update improves handling MacFUSE filesystems, displays a “bread crumb”-style indicator of the path to the folder selected as a source or destination, improves how Carbon Copy Cloner prevents a system from going to sleep during a backup, and fixes an issue with the OS X 10.8.2 Supplemental Update that prevented a backup from taking place. Additionally, the system requirements for a remote Mac are now the same as those for your Mac running Carbon Copy Cloner — notably, backing up to a PowerPC-based Mac won’t work anymore. ($39.95 new, free update, 10.7 MB, release notes)
File Email with a Key in Apple Mail
In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.
New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.

AFAIK this still hasn't happened -- in fact you can't even see a read-only version of what's scheduled to be backed up -- and this is what stops me from buying this program.
If I'm mistaken and this ability has been added, please let me know. I'd also be interested to hear which competing backup programs are generally similar to CCC (probably front-ends to rsync) but that do have this ability. Thanks.
