Product announcement: Carbon Copy Cloner version 6

CCC 6 is here! Faster backups, better accountability, Dark Mode, and so much more
by Mike | May 19, 2021

We've had so many new features in the oven for a while, and now we're finally ready to share it with the world! CCC 6 offers unprecedented accountability for your backups and insight into what's changing on your Mac, plus a brand new file copier that's faster, smarter, and designed to adapt to Apple's fast pace of OS and filesystem innovation.

Take a look at what's new in CCC 6:

The core CCC backup features you know and love are now better than ever!

I never buy any software that is version x.0, but after there have been a few updates to fix the inevitable new-release bugs, I plan on upgrading. At $20 (to upgrade from version 5), it's really a no-brainer.

The most important feature for me is the faster file copier and the use of Apple's FSEvents API to eliminate the need to read every file on the computer in order to determine what's changed since the last backup.

Disclaimer: I do not work for Mike Bombich. I'm just a happy user of Carbon Copy Cloner and I wanted to share the news of a new release with those who may also be interested.
