The venerable Carbon Copy Cloner backup software has been updated to version 5.05. The software has been maintained and regularly upgraded since 2002, with version 5.0 first appearing in August 2017 to more fully support macOS High Sierra and Apple’s APFS filesystem. It has features like bootable backups, updating only files that have been added or modified, checksums, as well as scheduled and manual backups. It can even backup Macs remotely and supports macOS 10.10 through 10.13.
One of my favorite features is SafetyNet that keeps copies of recently deleted and changed files, similar to what Apple’s Time Machine does. But unlike Time Machine, SafetyNet files are stored in a standard, visible folder in a drive’s main directory. The interface is clean and clear with simplified and advanced modes. Having used the software for years, I strongly recommend it to simplify and improve one’s backup strategy.
