Carbon Copy Cloner

Just a short note to sing the praises of Carbon Copy Cloner which I’m using to backup my MacBook Air as I write.

If you have been imaging and deploying Mac OS X for many years then you almost certainly came across Mike Bombich and some of the tools he wrote to make life easier. One of these was Carbon Copy Cloner , a program that started out as a tool to create a bootable clone of a system drive.

Carbon Copy Cloner has changed so it is also a great backup tool, considerably better than Time Machine. It has an easy to use interface and more power than Apple’s utility. Just the ability to boot off your backup can save you time and anxiety. Highly recommended and well worth the $40 price.
