Bombich Software today announced the release of Carbon Copy Cloner 3.2.1, an update to their popular backup and cloning utility for Mac OS X. According to the developer, this release fixes a couple of minor issues with Carbon Copy Cloner 3.2. Which, by the way, was released two weeks ago and included a bunch of changes to the software. So here's a complete list of the changes found in both versions to put everything into perspective.
Carbon Copy Cloner 3.2.1:
Resolved interface issues with non-English localizations.
Resolved an issue in which, in some circumstances, rsync was unable to create a directory if the parent directory was locked.
Addressed a codesigning issue that would prevent CCC from launching in some cases on Mac OS X Tiger.
Resolved an issue in which the Authentication Credentials installer package would not install on certain installations of Mac OS X Tiger.
Carbon Copy Cloner 3.2:
Prior to version 3, CCC would not delete items at the root level of the target volume if those items were not present on the source volume.
Implemented filters support for remote source volumes.
CCC no longer disables non-HFS formatted volumes in the source and target lists. Rather, selecting these non-supported filesystems as a source or target will produce a helpful dialog box indicating how to proceed with those volumes.
The description of what will happen during a "Backup everything" task has been updated to more accurately reflect what actually occurs.
CCC now correctly reports on the bootability of mirrored volumes on PowerPC systems.
Resolved a few minor issues with cropped text in non-English localizations.
CCC will now report IO errors via a dialog box every time they are encountered. Previously, non-IO related errors encountered after IO errors would take precedence, and IO errors would only be reported in the CCC log.
Addressed an issue in which CCC would fail with a generic error when running out of space for temporary files on the target volume.
Included an updated version of rsync 3.0.5.
Resolved an issue in which locked folders caused synchronization errors in rare circumstances.
Resolved several rsync-related issues related to getting, listing, setting, and removing extended attributes.
Resolved an issue in which CCC would prompt the user to run a scheduled task (with a remote Macintosh as the target) when the network connection was re-established even if the task had been explicitly deferred.
CCC now creates its own key pair for ssh communication with other Macs on your network, rather than using any pre-existing key pairs.
CCC now mounts disk images at custom mount points in /tmp rather than in the default location of /Volumes.
Resolved an issue in which disk images could not be created on AFP or SMB network shares.
Resolved an issue in which the failure of certain built-in tasks would indicate that there was an error with a preflight script.
Several updates to the documentation: Expanded on the Tips section, added extensive coverage of the new "Protect root-level items on the target" feature, updated instructions on restoring from a disk image, minor updates to the "Backing up to a remote Macintosh" section (plus a large addition on backing up multiple Macs to a single "server"), and added several items to the FAQ section.
Carbon Copy Cloner 3.2.1 weighs in at 2.7MB and requires Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later.
