Clone X is specially designed to create a copy of your system, to duplicate it on other disks or computers, and to repair and reinstall the system in case of problems (damaged system, errors during installation, etc.)

With OS X, the system is now a very complex construction. It is no longer confined within the System 9 System folder, but is distributed all around multiple folders, most of them being inaccessible (invisible, protected or permission denied). Moreover, any copy or installation must preserve permissions and ownership of each file.

Clone your System: Clone X provides powerful more...

What's New

Version 4.2.8:
  • New button to add filters to exclude iLife and iWork applications in minimal System (results in a smaller disk).
  • Correction of errors that could be reported when copying iCloud temporary items.
  • Minor changes and improvements.

Requirements

OS X 10.6 or later

SuperDuper worksgreat with all versions of Mac OS including Mountain Lion 10.8.2. It has never failed me. I ama registered user but the last I looked at it, It is free if you don't need the extra stuff.

Works perfect. But if you want the same for free, take a look at Carbon Copy Cloner.

There is no need to refer those looking for the final donationware version (3.4.7) to a third party site. See: http://www.bombich.com/download.html

Does this do anything CarbonCopyCloner doesn't?

No, it does not. Worse, the FREE (if you can’t afford to donate) and constantly updated CarbonCopyCloner has many advanced capabilities (not least among them is scheduled backups) that this does not have, and yet Tri-Edre charges $29 for it!

I've been using CCC for so long! Can't even remember. It never failed. Yes CCC really deserve a donation.

like the way the developer took the time to add a "BOOTCAMP NOT SUPPORTED MESSAGE" instead of implementing a way to actually backup or clone a bootcamp partition!!! hahaha thank GOD i still have my winclone working. winclone is still the ONLY backup utility that actually clones and restores any bootcamp partition. if the developer invested time into making a cloning utility that just clones and restores bootcamp partitions like winlclone,he would make a lot of money since winclone is discontinued and am not sure how much longer we can patch it to keep it working with mac system updates.

Well.... their version of "minimal" system and my version are significantly different. The process begins by copying the -entire- /Library folder ( and not just the "minimal" or Apple-only files.) My own /Library folder is 128 GB... which is hardly "minimal" in my book.

Not a single thing about this massively overpriced junk that cannot be done better with FREE or donateware apps. Stay away.

$49 seems a bit pricey compared to Carbon Copy Cloner which is DonateWare. Maybe Clone X 3.1.1. has some extra special features which CCC does not have... but $49? Yikes :)

BootCD says it does not work with 10.4. This is a better option.

It's not a better option, heck, it's not even an option at $49, especially while the developer of Carbon Copy Cloner 3.2.1 allows us to use it full-featured FOR FREE (just by clicking Help > Donate to Bombich Software > I paid), though if you have any principles, you'll donate at least the recommended $10.

First of all, I am in no way associated with Bombich Software, I just really appreciate that they make an irreplaceable, constantly updated, full-featured backup/cloning app available for free if you really can't afford it. CCC has been one of the most lauded apps available since at least January of 2002 (check the reviews on VersionTracker.com to see them all since the beginning, or to read all the professional reviews just do a Google search on Carbon Copy Cloner). It's not the very BEST backup app available (like most, I prefer SuperDuper! or Synk, but you MUST pay for those), but CCC is by far the very best donationware backup app available, hands down, and it's the ONLY FREE ONE THAT MAKES FULL, BOOTABLE CLONES. And after you've made your fully bootable clone, later you can make quick, incremental backups to it that maintain its bootability and cloniness (to coin a lame term). Oh, did I mention that it is UNHOBBLED DONATIONWARE?

$49 for this? Sorry, I haven't tried it yet. But it would be hard pressed to be superior to applications such as CCC.

You've really got to be kidding.
