Carbon Copy Cloner 6.1.3
Bombich Software has issued Carbon Copy Cloner 6.1.3 (CCC), adding official support for macOS 13 Ventura. The drive cloning and backup utility streamlines the process for granting Full Disk Access in Ventura to a single step, adopts a new macOS procedure for adding the CCC Dashboard login item, adjusts how connections to a remote Mac are initiated from a Ventura client, and fixes a memory leak issue that occurs in the SQLite encryption library (most frequently in Ventura). The release also updates the Compare window to show files discovered on the source and destination separately, resolves an issue in which “on reconnect” tasks were not correctly throttled, enables deletion of task groups via the Task menu, and skips automated tasks any time a restore task is running to avoid conflicts. ($39.99 new, free update, 22.6 MB, release notes, macOS 10.15+)
CCC has been bulletproof for my needs, backing up multiple data volumes on multiple systems. I have been using CCC on Ventura beta for some months and have been happy with the performance and reliability. And, it still works with my Client’s older macOS instances.
I’d provide more history info, but I just found that the task completion emails don’t contain any CCC application information. Now I have to look at the template to see if it can be added – I won’t add this data manually because that is what a computer should do for me.
Update: CCC Version is available in the email template settings. I added it for my future emails. TABs, not SPACEs, are used for alignment.
