This week Six Colors has been brought to you by Bombich Software and their app, Carbon Copy Cloner.

I started using Carbon Copy Cloner more than a decade ago, when it was donationware. Now it’s commercial software funding a seven-employee company. (Look how it’s grown!) CCC lets you create bootable backups of your mac, and includes smart updates, schedule backups, support for local or network volumes, and much more.

Version 4 improvements included a beautiful, redesigned interface, and version 4.1 just added a Simple mode, to make things even easier.

For $39.99 you can get a household licence for Carbon Copy Cloner which lets you use CCC on all the computers in your house for one price.

If you remember CCC from the early 2000s, you aren’t remembering what CCC has evolved into today. It’s still powerful, but it’s also intuitive and efficient.
