Carbon Copy Cloner
Just had a question that hopefully someone could answer for me about CCC.
I was wondering, once you copy your drive can you pull individual files over from the back up disk to another iMac? I'm wanting to back up my old iMac and move the individual files over to the new one.(So I can get the new one organized at my own pace).
Thanks for any help/suggestions.

A CCC "clone" is like any other volume. The files are in POFF (plain old finder format) -- nothing "extra" is needed to view or copy them.
You can also boot from a CCC backup of your internal drive...

CCC is great because it is a bootable clone of your drive. I feel it falls short because it is much weaker in storing older versions of files. In my priority order... I want the following:
1) Offsite cloud backup - safe,secure, automatic and offsite
2) Time Machine - local, fast backup... great versioning control
3) CCC - bootable backup.
In that priority order.
