Backup Options Galore

Choose exactly what you want to back up. Create a backup on your external drive or back up your files to another Macintosh. Back up only an individual folder, or an entire external hard drive. CCC is flexible.

Improved, with new options

Scheduled Backups

CCC can back up your data hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, whenever you connect to your backup drive, or whenever you make changes. You can tell CCC to back up only on weekdays, weekends, or only during certain times of day. You can also craft a more sophisticated backup strategy with task chaining and scheduled task groups.

Scheduled Backups

Snapshots

Bring back files that you thought you'd lost forever! CCC can capture all your files exactly as they are at a moment in time. Restore files you accidentally deleted — or that were corrupted by malware.

Snapshots

Smart Updates

CCC is smart enough to know that you only want to copy files that have been added or modified — no matter what backup option you choose, it never copies files unnecessarily.

Quick Updates

Interested in lightning quick backups with no exhaustive scanning for changes required? How about those NAS backups that took hours — would you believe us if we said they could now take as little as a few minutes? It's true: CCC has a whole new approach to figuring out what needs to be copied that you will love!

Backup Notifications

In addition to keeping you posted with the macOS Notification Center, CCC can email you the results of your backup tasks. It couldn't be easier: configure your email account settings once and use them across multiple tasks!

Backup Notifications

Task Grouping and Sorting

Collect your tasks into groups to visually organize them. Run a group of tasks with a single click, or schedule a group all at once. Tasks can also be sorted by name, exit status, last run date, next run date, or manually.

Task Grouping and Sorting

Dashboard

CCC's menu bar app is better than ever. Dashboard now tracks the space consumed by snapshots on your disks. Of course, it still offers one-click access to starting, stopping and monitoring your CCC tasks alongside details about recent task activity.

Compare: Source & Destination

You've finished your backup but the source and the destination aren't exactly the same size; did your task miss something? CCC's Compare feature offers a visual comparison to quickly determine if something is missing from the backup, or if size differences are simply the result of files sitting in the Trash.

Post-Backup Verification

Double-check that everything was copied by a task and written perfectly to the destination, every time it runs, right after it runs.

On-Demand Integrity Check

When CCC runs, it maintains a record of the "last known state" of each file. On demand, CCC can check if anything has changed — on the source or destination — since the files were copied.

Advanced File Filtering

Excluding a folder or two from a backup task has always been trivial with CCC, and now it's even easier to precisely define what should and should not be backed up. You can also now visualize the effects of custom filter rules, and CCC will report how much data is going to be backed up. A QuickLook panel shows you a preview of your files, and you can sort your file list based on name, size, or modification date.

Task History Trends

Our new trend chart shows how your tasks are performing over time, and how many files/how much data gets copied each time your task runs.

Other Goodies

CCC 6 offers per-task control over the file copier’s CPU usage. There is also more information about your source and destination right at your fingertips – click on the source or destination selector to see extensive information about the selected volume. Also new, those pesky items that cause task errors can be excluded directly from the Task History Errors table. Last, CCC’s Task Filter now offers support for respecting macOS “backupd” exclusions (i.e. exclusions defined for Time Machine).
