What’s New in Carbon Copy Cloner 5.1.8 (5702)
- When creating a new disk image on a Mojave system, CCC will now create APFSformatted disk images if the source volume is APFSformatted. All snapshot functionality afforded to APFSformatted volumes will apply to APFSformatted disk images as well.
- Hard drives from a popular vendor ship with a rogue “is a bundle” flag set on the root folder. When cloning this volume to a folder, the rogue flag is preserved on the destination folder, which causes the Finder to treat it like a file, making it awkward to see the items that were copied. CCC now strips this rogue flag from the root folder of the selected destination to avoid the annoying result.
- Adjusted the handling of 0byte “placeholder” files (e.g. Dropbox, GoogleDrive, OneDrive “online only” files) to avoid lengthy delays. These delays were particularly notable when working through Dropbox folders.
- Total snapshot disk usage is presented more prominently in the Disk Center.
- When cloning to an ExFAT or FAT32 volume, custom volume icons are now preserved at the destination.
- Resolved an error that can occur when creating readonly disk images on SMB network volumes. Due to a bug in macOS Mojave, sparseimage disk images cannot be created on SMB NAS volumes. Rather than creating a sparseimage intermediate disk image, CCC will now create aa sparsebundle intermediate disk image.
- CCC’s “trust but verify” casesensitivity check is now applied to “ufsd_ExtFS” volumes as well, after getting confirmation from a user that these volumes incorrectly report themselves as caseinsensitive, when in fact they are casesensitive.
- To protect against unauthorized modifications, CCC now requires that pre and postflight scripts are owned and writable only by the system administrator, and that all parent folders of the scripts are owned and writable only by the system administrator. A new “Secure CCC’s Scripts folder” option is available in the Utilities menu to help meet these new requirements.
- Fixed some UI issues around the visibility of the pre/postflight script interface elements.
- Fixed an issue in which other tasks within a group would start to run after the following events: a) start task group, b) stop task group before all tasks complete, c) manually run one of the tasks within the group.
- Fixed an issue in which CCC would errantly report that a destination lacked support for files larger than 4GB.
- Hourly run time limits that have a start or end time at midnight will be applied a little more gracefully, e.g. a task that starts a few seconds prior to midnight will be allowed to run with a midnight start time limit.
- Fixed a password decoding issue that could cause problems while configuring a task with the Remote Macintosh option if the administrator’s password on the remote Mac contained 3byte characters (e.g. €).
- Tasks that failed due to the source or destination being missing will no longer get a “failed” badge in the Tasks table if the task is also configured to not send error notifications when the source or destination is missing. Likewise, the Task Plan will now indicate this condition specifically, rather than offering a generic “Errors occurred during the last run” message.
