On Saturday, Carbon Copy Cloner, the shareware favorite for drive cloning operations by Mike Bombich, reached version 3.5.1. The new version, an 8.6 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and changes:
- Fixed an issue in which CCC was unable to save scheduled tasks after being updated.
- Resolved a permissions issue related to accessing some files on source when the destination was a network volume.
- Made some minor UI adjustments in the Documentation window.
- Fixed an intermittent exception at the end of a scheduled task that would result in the “Task finished” window disappearing early and failure of email notifications.
- Fixed an exception that would cause a hang during the creation of a Recovery HD volume.
- Non-admin users will no longer be prompted to authenticate when launching CCC on Lion or Mountain Lion. This authentication was leveraged to collect information about the Recovery HD volumes attached to your Mac, but CCC was unable to give that indication prior to the authentication dialog being presented. To avoid unnecessary concern, we chose to not collect that information when a user is logged in to a non-admin account.
- When LateNite Software’s “Clusters” software makes changes to .DS_Store files on the source volume, those changes can lead to errors during the backup. These errors are now suppressed.
Carbon Copy Cloner 3.5.1 retails for a US$39.95 shareware registration fee. The application requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
