    So I've been using CCC preferentially over time machine in 10.5 to do my backups, and I just ordered my 10.6 disc. Problem is, I don't know if CCC works on Snow Leopard. Has anybody tried it on any of the developer releases/etc?

    CCC Backups on Snow Leopard

    SAme question & more! O just bght a new Mac and am setting it up. I would prefer to have a bootable backup external drive, so I want to use CCC.For that & otehr reasons I want to:
    1. Disable Time Macine
    2. Use CCC.
    Have you tried it yet?

    Another related q: Will CCC back up a virtual Windows type application & content? Will it do some of them but not all of them?

    Making a bootable backup, backs up everything. It doesn't care what the files are. I use to use CCC on 10.6, but just use rsync now.

    CCC is working fine for me on 10.6.4 (and 10.5.8, and 10.4.11), making bootable clones of the startup disk and incremental backups of other volumes.

    Why not use both. I have two external drives, one for TM and one for CCC. I use TM for those situations where I deleted a file or modified a file I shouldn't have and CCC when I totally mess up the system.
