Carbon Copy Cloner

Yeah: today is time for meetings :D !!!

By TUAW a news that anyone (like me? without money?) was waiting for: CCC aka Carbon Copy Cloner is [en:Universal Binary].

This means that now it runs on [en:MacIntel] too. But, what’s new in this beta release?

Carbon Copy Cloner 3 was completely rebuilt from the ground up to bring a new suite of features to meet the growing needs of Mac OS X users. In addition to the fast disk-to-disk cloning, CCC is now a full-featured backup utility as well. Among the new features in CCC 3 are:
  • Support for block-level disk-to-disk clones.

  • Support for backing up across the network.

  • The ability to drill down into folders to select exactly what gets copied and what doesn't (you can drill down indefinitely).

  • A more responsive interface and the ability to stop the clone.

  • More accurate feedback during the clone.

  • The ability to pick up where a previously aborted backup task left off.

  • More information about your disks are available within the CCC interface.

  • Advanced scheduling capabilities -- choose what days to run your backups and how frequently they should run. You can also defer a backup if it starts at an inopportune time.

  • Now you can create a scheduled task that backs up your data whenever you attach a specific hard drive or iPod.
