Bombich Software has issued Carbon Copy Cloner 6.0.5 (CCC) with a new macOS Downgrade Assistant feature, which can assess a backup volume’s compatibility with Migration Assistant and create macOS Installer media using a specified volume and installer application. The drive-cloning and backup utility now lets you hold down the Option key when selecting a network volume source or destination to reveal a Switch to AFP or Switch to SMB menu item in the Source and Destination selectors. The update also brings back manual rearrangement of tasks in the sidebar, improves performance when writing large files to a rotational destination, fixes a display issue in the Legacy Bootable Backup Assistant, and resolves an issue in macOS 12 Monterey that caused failures when trying to configure new Remote Macintosh tasks. ($39.99 new, free update, 19.0 MB, release notes, macOS 10.15+)
