Identificazione e risoluzione di problemi legati all'hardware

Product:

A volte i componenti hardware muoiono di una morte lenta e fastidiosamente imprevedibile. In un momento sembra che sia possibile copiare i dati su disco e utilizzarlo normalmente. Il momento successivo si verificano errori apparentemente casuali, interruzioni, blocchi, il volume di destinazione "scompare" nel mezzo di un'operazione di backup, blocchi del Finder e altri comportamenti strani.

macOS Big Sur Known Issues

Some Big Sur startup volumes don't appear in the Startup Disk Preference Pane

In the past, the Startup Disk Preference Pane would list all available startup volumes, including CCC backup volumes. When Apple's APFS replication utility is used to copy a Big Sur System volume (something that is now required on macOS Big Sur), however, the cloned volume will not appear in the Startup Disk Preference Pane, despite being perfectly bootable.

Coping with errors caused by APFS filesystem corruption

Product: 
ccc6

We regularly see cases of APFS filesystem corruption that lead to errors during a backup task. This corruption is typically presented in an error like one of these:

readlink_stat("/Photos/Foo/2020_Dumpster_fire.jpg") failed: Illegal byte sequence (92)
rename("/Photos/Foo/.2020_Dumpster_fire_out_of_control.jpg.asdfgh" -> "/Photos/Foo/2020_Dumpster_fire_out_of_control.jpg") failed: No such file or directory (2)

When CCC encounters these errors, the affected items are listed in CCC's Task History window, often with this advice:

Some third-party storage drivers may cause hardware misbehavior

Product:

We occasionally receive reports of strange behavior from USB devices, e.g. slow performance, disks dropping offline in the middle of the backup task. In some of those cases we've discovered that third-party storage drivers are causing the problem. In particular, the SAT-SMART drivers and some ancient BlackBerry USB drivers can lead to problems. If you're troubleshooting a USB device behavior or performance problem, we recommend that you consider uninstalling these drivers.

macOS Catalina Known Issues

Some SMB volumes can't support macOS sparse disk images

We have received several reports that macOS is unable to create disk images on SMB volumes hosted by various NAS devices. If you attempt to create the disk image in Disk Utility (for example), Disk Utility reports an "RPC Error". After months of investigation, we have concluded that macOS Catalina has more stringent requirements for sparse disk images than previous OSes.

Why does Finder prevent me from viewing the home folder on my backup when it's attached to another Mac?

Why can't I eject the destination volume after the backup task has completed?

Product: 
ccc6

The disk Backup wasn't ejected because one or more programs may be using it.

Occasionally this annoying message comes up when you're trying to eject your destination volume. If CCC is currently using that volume as a source or destination to a running backup task, then CCC will effectively prevent the volume from being unmounted. If your backup task is not running, though, CCC isn't preventing the volume from being unmounted. But what application is?

Where can I find CCC's log file?

It is our aim to have the Task History window provide the user with enough information to find and troubleshoot any problems they're having with their backup tasks. For debugging and support purposes, however, CCC logs its activity in the following files:

Troubleshooting slow performance when copying files to or from a network volume

Product: 
ccc6

Network performance is usually the bottleneck of a backup task that copies files to or from a network volume, but there are several other factors that can affect performance as well. Here are some suggestions for improving the performance of your NAS-based backups.

"The task was aborted because a subtask did not complete in a reasonable amount of time"

Product: 
ccc6

Occasionally a backup task can stall if the source or destination stops responding. To avoid waiting indefinitely for a filesystem to start responding again, CCC has a "watchdog" mechanism that it uses to determine if its file copying utility has encountered such a stall. By default, CCC imposes a ten minute timeout on this utility. If ten minutes pass without hearing from the file copying utility, CCC will collect some diagnostics information, then stop the backup task. Our support team can analyze this diagnostic information to determine what led to the stall.
