Carbon Copy Cloner

in macOS edited January 2014
Some of you may have seen my earlier post regarding wanting to move Mac OS X to my bigger partition because I am running out of room on the current partition that Mac OS X is on. Will Carbon Copy Cloner do fine to copy Mac OS X or would I be better off doing a complete re-install? I think that I know what reply I am going to get, however, I just want to be sure before I drag out those installer CDs. Plus I hate the idea of having to install drivers for keyboard, and re-installing system preferences panes like Default Folder, Key Xing, Labels X, APE Manager.

    Carbon Copy Cloner should do an excellent job - if not, you can always wipe your new drive and try again!

    I have had some issues with CCC, but overall it works very well...

    I've been able to use the program once and it worked perfectly. I've never used it for anything complicated like synchronization or anything. Give it a try. It's shareware that's fully functional even if you don't pay. (But you should because it's a kick ass program.)

    I use CCC to back-up a fully functional system on a monthly basis. Quite a piece of software, esp. for free.

    Syncing works very well too, in my experience.

    Definitely worth using and worth a donation. It's almost too good for freeware. ; )
