As the only tool on Mac OS X to actually backup ACLs and EAs, this tool is an absolute for any Mac user, especially laptop users and people on the go! My clients can't thank me enough for suggesting this and at $39, it's worth every penny.

SuperDuper! saves/restores ACLs and EAs, and I probably at least Carbon Copy Cloner also does.

SuperDuper! has not been "stuck in development hell since Leopard." Whatever gave you this idea?

This is one worthless app.

Continually stops working.
NO support after 30 days w/o paying.

Poor help before 30 days.

Avoid at all costs.

With SuperDuper stuck in development hell since the release of Leopard I'm giving this tool serious consideration. Sick of waiting for vaporware and queasy about not having a decent bootable backup the old-fashioned way.

Do try Carbon Copy Cloner. I would be surprised if it disappoints you.

I can already do this for free with CarbonCopyCloner and for a lot less than $70 with SuperDuper. Does bruClone do something that these other tools do not?

Because it doesn't use the OS Unix tools (which failed for me quietly), the clone completes and is as expected. I previously used CCC and it left me with useless clones on more than one occasion. So far, bruCLONE has cloned my DAW exactly every time.

Also, I can actually work on my G5 1.8GHz Dual while a clone is running. CCC made me get off the system while it was running.

But, if CCC works for you, then you probably don't need to change - don't fix that which isn't broken :-).

Because bruCLONE uses our BRU technology for the clone operation, each file that is cloned is fully verified when written onto the target disk, rather that simply copied with the hope that it made it onto the target volume successfully. Additionally, bruCLONE is designed to cloone a live system, so it to allows you to actually work productively on your system while a clone is occurring rather than taking over the entire system or making you reboot to a separate volume to clone your system disk.

MultiTrackOps, CarbonCopyCloner doesn't make me get off my G5 1.8 (single processor). It often starts its schedule back-up while I am still working and I've noticed no problems.

SuperDuper! costs $27.95, not $70.00.

Hmm, I recall paying around $40 for my copy. Where did $70 come from?

bruCLONE is TOLIS Group's disk cloning tool for Mac OS X desktop systems. It delivers OS X ease of use with 22 years of Unix reliability to create bootable exact copies of OS X hard disks. Following the repair of a damaged system, recovery is as simple as performing a reverse clone of the volume after booting the system from the target disk.

Features:
  • Live System Cloning - based upon TOLIS' proven BRU™ technology, bruCLONE is an exceptionally fast, yet lightweight process that is designed to allow a system to remain online and in productive use while the clone operation occurs. bruCLONE uses Unix API's that provide file copy operations of in-use files.
  • Bootable Clones - bruCLONE will make the target destination volume bootable if the source volume was bootable. All bootable disk types are supported.
  • Comprehensive Coverage - All aspects of the source volume are duplicated onto the target destination volume; permissions, resource forks, and Finder info are all protected.
  • CLONE Watch - the CLONE Watch icon resides in the system menu bar's status area and uses user-definable values for providing Green, Amber, and Red clone indicators. When a system reaches the Red warning level, a reminder dialog will also remind the user to update their target destination disk.
  • Disaster Recovery - a bruCLONE target destination volume is a full duplicate of the source volume. bruCLONE provides instant bootable recovery for a crashed system whether that requires running the system temporarily from the clone disk or rebuilding the original system from the clone volume after the system has been repaired. You do not need to reinstall the base OS X operating system. When used in conjunction with a backup tool such as BRU LE, BRU PE, or BRU Server, clone recovery can simplify the process of restoring your system so that anyone can return their OS X desktop system to fully operational status.
  • Incremental Updating - bruCLONE knows which files are changed or added to your primary disk and can be used to update the target destination volume without requiring a new full clone operation.
  • Source Volume Permission Repair - bruCLONE allows you to check and fix the permissions on a source volume before performing the clone operation to ensure the target destination volume is created properly.
  • Adjustable Priority Levels - the user can set the priority level of the clone operation to allow the system to remain useful or to increase the speed of the clone operation when the system will not be in use.
  • Perfect Support Staff Tool - bruCLONE provides Mac desktop support teams with an easy to use tool that can provide both emergency recovery and the ability to "roll-back" system updates. By performing a clone operation of a system when it is installed and before any major changes (OS Upgrade, new application install), you have an easy mechanism for "undoing" any changes made to the system. We offer special volume discounts on bruCLONE. Ask your sales rep for more information.
Special Pricing for BRU LE, BRU PE and BRU Server users - Let our sales team know that you already own another BRU product (active serial number required) and you'll save $20 when purchasing bruCLONE.

Note about PPC vs. Intel Cloning: Because the boot environment for PPC and Intel Mac systems are different, it is not possible to boot one type of system from a clone made from the other type of system. While the data can be copied from one to the other, Intel systems can't boot from a PPC clone, and vice versa.
