Hi Mac Experts -
Tough cloning problem, “Carbon Copy Cloner” versus “DropDMG” - - - which is “better” for cloning a boot SSD for backup purposes.
Both of those two utilities are seldom used by “ordinary” Mac users, so I am having a terrible time trying to unearth their pros and cons.
Both utilities can handle hidden files, hidden EFI partitions, “hard links”, and other hidden pseudocode that Apple throws up as part of their file systems - - - such that a “Restored” internal boot SSD is a more-or-less dead ringer for the original internal boot SSD. ( 1-TB )
…bootable and all.
Perhaps I better describe what I am trying to do?
I suffer bursts of creative activity, usually when I forget to take my medications. ;-)
I _try_ to create backups often, but like many other Mac users I am remiss.
And any recent backup is _still_ missing the most recent activity, which often takes me hours to re-construct assuming I can even remember what I did.
I thought of desperate means of reconstructing recent activity, such as buying a “White Hat” key-logger to recreate my recent keyboard activity.
Is that even feasible? Are any good key-logger app’s for sale commercially?
Will the “En Ess Say” list me as a cyber-terrorist because I bought a key-logger?
Will I have to live in Peru along with Edward Snowden?
ANYHOW back to my simple question.
Does “DropDMG” do roughly the same thing as CCC ? (Carbon Copy Cloner)
Usually Mac geeks buy everything in sight, just to check out weird utilities.
Any Mac geeks in EE ?
