Carbon Copy Cloner 6.1.5
Bombich Software has released Carbon Copy Cloner 6.1.5 (CCC) with improvements and bug fixes for the drive cloning and backup utility. The update now presents more context in cases where a task fails due to a stall at the source or destination, provides more specific advice when errors occur due to a disagreement between the source and (typically NAS) destination, lists network change events in the Activity tab of the CCC Dashboard, adjusts the behavior of the Task Filter window when working with a Remote Macintosh source, and fixes a layout issue in the task plan when hiding and then revealing the sidebar (particularly in macOS 13 Ventura). ($49.99 new, free update, 22.3 MB, release notes, macOS 10.15+)
One thing I like about TidBits newsletters is getting notified about upgrades I might not otherwise notice.
Carbon Copy Cloner is great for an extra backup (I also use Time Machine and BackBlaze). The developer is always very responsive if there are any issues.
If you enable CCC’s Dashboard (from the preferences), the CCC menubar icon will change to get your attention for updates (or issues with scheduled backups).
Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don’t. Same with BBEdit.
After the update I’ve had issues with an external SSD attached to a hub randomly unmounting during extended backups (health check) for no reason; no messages in any log.
