Have you ever wanted a simple, complete, bootable backup of your hard drive? Have you ever wanted to upgrade to a larger hard drive with minimal hassle and without reinstalling your OS and all of your applications? Have you ever wanted to move your entire macOS installation to a new computer? Then CCC is the tool for you! CCC makes these tasks simple by harnessing the Unix power built into macOS. In addition to the features that CCC has provided in the past, version 2 offers synchronization of the source and target as well as scheduled backup tasks. Now you can setup a regular backup regimen that occurs in the background, even if you are not logged in! Version 2 also offers enhancements for lab administrators, including the option to run pre and post*flight shell scripts, the ability to modify the list of items to be removed at the end of a clone, and the ability to create a disk image on the fly.

Supported configurations:

  • Local (i.e., not over a network connection), HFS+ formatted partition or hard drive.
  • Mounted disk image. Cloning to a disk image will (obviously), not yield a bootable volume unless you use CCC to restore the image to a physical partition or disk.
  • Firewire disks including iPods
  • CCC will not backup directly to CDs or DVD*R discs, though you can backup to an appropriately sized disk image, then burn the image to disc with Toast or Disk Copy.
  • Any machine that supports macOS (officially).
