Carbon Copy Cloner 4.1.6

Bombich Software released Carbon Copy Cloner 4.1.5 with a fix for a hang caused by behavior introduced by the OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan update (see also “Apple Releases OS X 10.11.1 to Fix Microsoft Office 2016 Crashes,” 21 October 2015). The backup utility is now more deliberate in unmounting destination volumes at the end of a backup task should Spotlight deny the unmount request, works around an El Capitan bug that could occasionally lead to crashes on launch, and adds the capability to accept a blank password when accessing NAS volumes. Shortly after this release, Bombich Software updated Carbon
Copy Cloner to version 4.1.6 to fix a crash introduced in version 4.1.5 that could occur when trying to select a folder or disk image on a network volume as the destination. ($39.99 new, 12.1 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
