Bombich Software has released Carbon Copy Cloner 3.5.5 with a couple of new proactive features related to hard drive errors. The bootable backup utility will now abort a backup task within five minutes if a defective hard drive is hanging and then collect extensive diagnostics information, as well as report physical read and write errors before starting a task to give you the opportunity to abort the backup. The update also improves progress indication in situations where the first folder encountered has many items, improves the performance of saving multiple scheduled tasks, and fixes a bug that prevented idle sleep after displaying the “Task finished” panel for a scheduled task. ($39.95 new, free update, 10.8 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
