    What's a good and reliable program for Mac OS that automatically schedules clone for a specific targeted drive? I have two hard drive and I want to clone one of my hard drive that I mainly use regularly (weekly).

    Thanks!

    Time Machine cannot make a bootable clone of your drive.
    SuperDuper! can make a bootable clone of the drive, but not the recovery partition.
    Carbon Copy Cloner can make a bootable clone, including the recovery partition.
    CCC is free for all versions except 3.5, which is $40. You only need version 3.5 if you're running Mountain Lion.
