With Carbon Copy Cloner, your data and the operating system’s data are all preserved on a bootable volume, ready for production at a moment’s notice. When disaster strikes, simply boot from your backup and get back to using your Mac.
Carbon Copy Cloner uses a different approach for backups; it literally clones the contents of your internal disk onto an external hard drive. (Or you may split your external disk into multiple partitions, and clone to one of those, so you can use the other partition for general purpose file storage). I’d like to take this opportunity to say I’ve been extremely happy with Carbon Copy Cloner and Bombich Software over the four years I’ve been a customer. CCC is a truly outstanding piece of crafted software with top-notch support (I love the integrated help and support features) offered by a reliable and professionally-run company.Big Sur Infomation

Carbon Copy Cloner Bootable Backup Tool
However, a workaround is now available: see the Shirt Pocket blog for information.
Have no fear. SuperDuper v3.3.1 is here, and it includes full Catalina support!
SuperDuper is the wildly acclaimed program that makes recovery painless, because it makes creating a fully bootable backup painless. Its incredibly clear, friendly interface is understandable, easy to use, and SuperDuper's built-in scheduler makes it trivial to back up automatically. It's the perfect complement to Time Machine, allowing you to store a bootable backup alongside your Time Machine volume—and it runs beautifully on your Mac!
Version 3.3.1 lets you ignore 'missing drive' errors during scheduled copies, and also improves Smart Wake, which ensures your backups happen whether your Mac is awake or asleep..and won't turn on your screen if your Mac is already awake.
This new version also improves Smart Delete, an awesome new capability that minimizes the possibility of disk full errors while maintaining safety with no speed penalty, native Notification Center support, a Finder extension to quickly run copies, and other improvements. SuperDuper can even create and copy from snapshots, which means with an APFS backup drive, you can restore today's Smart Update, yesterday's, etc! It's super cool.
SuperDuper's interface confirms all your actions in simple, clear language to ensure that the end result is exactly what you intended. Take a look, and click for additional screen shots!

The SuperDuper! Main Window
We all know that using the Macintosh is usually a trouble-free experience.
Except when it's not. Like when:
- Your hard drive starts making that horrible clicking noise that signals an imminent meltdown
- A momentary lapse of coordination causes your MacBook Pro to take a dirt nap
- The system suddenly fails to boot
- Your most important day-to-day application isn't working with the system update you just applied
- The new driver you just updated is causing your Macintosh to crash
- That lousy software you just tried didn't come with an uninstaller, and scattered files all over your drive
- You need to restore a stable copy of your system, but don't want to lose what you've been working on
- You need to test new versions of the operating system with production data you can't afford to lose
It happens to all of us, eventually. And recovering can be a painful, error-prone, time-wasting experience, if it's even possible at all. Until now.
Carbon copies. And a whole lot more.
SuperDuper is the most advanced, yet easy to use disk copying program available for macOS. It can, of course, make a full backup, or 'clone' — in moments, you can completely duplicate your boot drive to another drive, partition, or image file. In even less time, you can update an existing clone with the latest data: use Smart Update and, minutes later, your backup is completely up to date!
Faster than a speeding bullet – and more accurate!
SuperDuper isn't just the most powerful cloner available: it's incredibly fast, too. Its Smart Update feature evaluates hundreds of thousands of files and directories in just minutes, automatically updating your clone to reflect any changes you've made on the original drive – including custom icons, HFS+ attributes, ownership changes.. the works! It can even copy (and Smart Update) Time Machine backup volumes!
Expertise not required.
SuperDuper comes preconfigured, ready to perform all the most common copying and cloning tasks. We've pored over the Apple documentation so you don't have to. Every step of the process carefully follows all Apple recommended policies and procedures.
Whether you're making a full backup to a disk image, using Smart Update to update an existing backup, or making a complex clone to test a software update, the process couldn't be simpler: select the source drive, the destination and the appropriate script. Click Copy Now, and SuperDuper does the rest.

Carbon Copy Cloner Bootable Backup Drive
Most companies would cherry-pick their feedback, and include selected quotes from happy customers. Sure, we could point you to our
4.55 star review from Macworld, ormanyotherraves. We could even point you to our back-to-back 2005 and 2006 Eddy Awards!
But we're not going to do that. Instead, we encourage you to ask some friends, and look for yourself! Here's a simple Google query for 'superduper macintosh review' to get you started.

Clones for experts.
Regular backups aren't always the best way to recover for the risk takers out there who jump on every software update. Unless you take specific steps, fully restoring a backup restores everything on the drive, overwriting both the system and user files. If that's what you want to do, great. But it usually isn't, because everything you've done since the backup would be lost!
With SuperDuper, though, you can easily 'checkpoint' your system with a Sandbox, preserving your computer's critical applications and files while you run on a working, bootable copy. If anything goes wrong, just reboot to the original. When you do, your current Documents, Music, Pictures — even iSync data — are available! You can get back to work immediately!
Clones for industry!
SuperDuper has enough features to satisfy the advanced user, too. Its simple-but-powerful Copy Script feature allows complete control of exactly which files get copied, ignored, even aliased ('soft linked' for the Unix inclined) from one drive to another!
SuperDuper is perfect for software developers, software 'seed' sites, QA testers, even system administrators: Microsoft remote desktop chrome os.
