If you wish to migrate your tasks from CCC on one system to CCC on another system, follow these steps:

  1. Quit CCC if it is running.
  2. Choose Computer from the Finder's Go menu.
  3. Click on your startup disk (often named Macintosh HD) – this is the destination for the migration
  4. Navigate to /Library/Application Support/
  5. Move the com.bombich.ccc item to the Trash (note: doing so will remove any saved tasks on that volume).
  6. Open a new Finder window (e.g. File > New Finder Window).
  7. Choose Computer from the Finder's Go menu.
  8. Click on the backup disk (or your old Mac's startup volume) – this is the source for the migration
  9. Navigate to /Library/Application Support/.
  10. Copy the  com.bombich.ccc folder from the source to /Library/Application Support/ on the destination.
  11. Restart your computer.
  12. Open CCC — your tasks should now be restored.

Note that you may have to activate suspended tasks, and/or reselect the source or destination volumes in your tasks.

Also, please note that you must move the com.bombich.ccc application support folder that is located in the root-level Library folder (e.g. Macintosh HD > Library, NOT Macintosh HD > Users > USER_NAME > Library). If you're looking in your home folder, you're in the wrong place.
