Alright, which is better? I am thinking of trying out CCC cause I've had enough of random Time Machine Snafus (or rather sick of everytime I re-install the OS, and not a clean install, it suddenly decides it is either a different computer, or stops remembering how to erase old backups to make more room on my backup drive. I've had to erase my backups once because it refused to acknowledge the previous backup as the same as mine after installing the OS, and now it claims there is no room though I'm pretty sure it's using the same backup, but I think it's not erasing old ones). Plus, I get the impression that CCC creates a bootable external disk too from my backup hard drive? Do I have that straight? Since I'm thinking of going to Lion that would be really nice (otherwise I'll have to buy a USB too to create an install disk as well as a new backup hard drive cause this time I'm not willing to lose my backups I already have).
