Carbon Copy Cloner 3.3 Released

Bombich Software today announced the release of Carbon Copy Cloner 3.3, a major update to their popular backup and cloning utility for Mac OS X. According to the developer, this version of the software includes specific improvements for Snow Leopard and hundreds of tweaks and adjustments to improve performance and reliability. Some of these improvements include:

  Added support for HFS+ filesystem compression that was introduced in Snow Leopard.

  To correspond with how the Finder and Disk Utility report these values on Snow Leopard, CCC will now use base 10 for reporting MB and GB on Snow Leopard. CCC will continue to use base 2 to report these values when booted from Leopard or Tiger.

  Improved the performance of backing up a large number of files with extended attributes.

  It is no longer a requirement that CCC be installed on media that supports the setuid bit.

  Added a bootability notification that will notify users when a target volume's underlying disk is partitioned with the MBR partitioning scheme (rather than the Apple-recommended GUID or APM partition scheme).

  Increased the increment value of the disk image segment size stepper from 1 to 25. Now it takes mere seconds to get from 650MB to 4.6GB.

  Addressed an issue in which the source and target menus would not be properly updated if a disk disappears unexpectedly in the middle of a backup task.

  CCC now properly excludes the Time Machine database when backing up a hard drive using the "Backup everything" cloning method in file-level mode.

Carbon Copy Cloner 3.3 weighs in at 3.2MB and requires Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later.
