Bombich Software released Carbon Copy Cloner 4.0.4 (CCC), a maintenance update that makes special accommodation for DiskWarrior Preview volumes and handles issues related to external utilities (such as CleanMyMac) deleting a folder where CCC stored task configuration files. The backup utility fixes a bug that occurred when multiple tasks started simultaneously and attempted to retrieve an item from CCC’s private keychain, works around an issue in OS X 10.10 Yosemite where the height of a Save or Open panel grew by 22 pixels every time it was opened, and improves detection of restoration of AC power in order to prevent tasks from being missed. Shortly after the 4.0.4 release, Bombich Software released Carbon Copy Cloner 4.0.5 to fix a new bug that caused the New Disk Image option in the Destination selector to fail in 10.8 Mountain Lion. ($39.99 new, 11.2 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
