Carbon Copy Cloner 4.1.16 Update (release notes):
Available as an in-app update for current 4.x users. Full D/L at bombich.com.
(Info from June 27th, 2017 CCC v4.1.16 release notes follows:)
  • Addressed a wake event scheduling issue that was introduced in the 10.12.5 update (yes, we're finding more goodies in that update every week!). CCC normally associates a unique identifier with each wake event that it schedules. That identifier shows that the event was created by CCC and for a specific task. Should CCC need to cancel the wake event (e.g. because you delete the task), CCC looks up the wake event by that unique identifier and deletes it. Starting in 10.12.5, macOS ignores that unique identifier, so now all of the CCC wake events are identical. This led to orphaned wake events getting created. Normally these are harmless and a reboot always removes these, but this update clears them all and uses a new algorithm to identify and remove wake events.

  • Adds preliminary support for cloning from an APFS startup volume to an HFS+ backup volume (applicable only to macOS High Sierra).

  • Fixed an issue in which CCC's scheduled tasks were improperly scheduled when the system clock was set to January 1, 2001 on startup (e.g. in cases where the Mac's motherboard battery is dead).
