Cloning via Carbon Copy Cloner may disable journaling
Authored by: BeezelNut RaRa on Sep 22, '06 02:20:31AM

I've used CCC to clone hundreds of Macs without incident. Every single Mac in the office is cloned from a master. Every disk always has journalling turned on and CCC doesn't affect this.

I've even used CCC to restore my Panther xServe on a couple occasions where there was disk damage. What I don't get: an xServe disk is badly damaged; I clone it to a Firewire drive; I reformat the damaged disk; I clone back from the FW drive; everything is splendid. You'd think CCC would clone the damage wouldn't you?

(Why did I do this? I trust CCC more than Retrospect. I figured Retrospect would take 12 hours to recover the disk, where I knew CCC would do it in under an hour, and a lot of people were standing around waiting to work again.)
