Carbon Copy Cloner - Mirror an OS X drive
Authored by: bluehz on May 29, '03 01:22:44PM

While CCC is an excellent app. I would have to agree with the 9 rating. Unfortunately CCC still has s few kinks. for instance, recently I bought a new HD for my Applications drive. I used CCC to clone my old Applications drive to the new one. All went well, no errors, etc. Then turns out over the next week I ran into a few applications that did not survive the clone so well. They appeared normally or as dirs instead of launchable applications. Either way they were not launchable and any attempts to repair them failed. Granted this was a small number of apps... maybe 5 out of 500 that had problems. Still - my main beef is that CCC in no way indicated a problem. What if this had been an important data backup for my business? IMHO, for a backup to be considered a legitimate backup it must archive and restore %100 of the files to %100 of the original state. So far CCC has failed to do that for me in many a usage.... not just applications.

I hope you wrote Mike about this.

I've done hundreds of clonings, on hundreds of systems.

NO ERRORS.

You should have copied your application support folder as well. Many apps installs things there and if you have copyed that Im 100% it would have worked.
