Feed Sponsor: Carbon Copy Cloner 5

This week, Six Colors is sponsored by Bombich Software and the new Carbon Copy Cloner 5.

Carbon Copy Cloner 5 is an upgrade to the bootable backup software for macOS. With CCC, you can create a bootable duplicate of your Mac’s hard drive on an external drive with ease—meaning that if your drive dies, you’re up and running in moments with an identical replacement. It’s also great for migration between systems, testing out beta software, and all sorts of other uses.

This particular upgrade features scheduled task grouping and sorting, guided setup and restore, task history trend charts, a health check for backups, advanced file filtering, and includes hundreds of improvements and fixes.
