Carbon Copy Cloner 4.1.13 Update (release notes):
Available as an in-app update for current 4.x users. Full D/L at http://bombich.com.
(Info from Jan 12th, 2017 CCC v4.1.13 release notes follows:)
  • Addressed an issue in which CCC was unable to save passwords to its keychain after migrating the CCC configuration from another Mac.

  • Fixed an issue in which CCC would periodically report that a task could not complete due to minor filesystem inconsistencies.

  • Addressed a Sierra-specific issue in which CCC would not recognize a freshly-created recovery volume due to it being named incorrectly by Disk Utility.

  • Implemented a workaround for cases where CCC's privileged helper tool is installed but disabled by the system.

  • We've received a couple reports of Sierra systems errantly setting the date forward to 2040, then immediately back to a sane value just a couple seconds later. Previously CCC would reschedule its tasks forward to 2040 in response to the clock change, but then not backwards to a sane time (because time isn't supposed to go backwards, right?). This version of CCC now implements a sanity check to avoid rescheduling tasks that far into the future.

  • Fixed an issue in which a scheduled task could resurrect itself if the user deleted it while it was running.

  • Packet corruption that causes the connection to a remote Mac to be terminated is now handled more gracefully. CCC will now automatically restart the backup task.
