How to clone Mac Lion?

Post by stevenros » 11 Sep 2011, 21:03

I am currently on Mac Lion. There are some issues in Lion which needs to be fixed as soon as possible. The only possible way to fix the issue is to reinstall the Mac 10.7. But before re installing the OS , I want to have a backup of my Mac disk.
I think Mac cloning is the best way to create a reliable backup of all the volumes on Mac. I want to have a Mac cloning software name and their performance ratings as wel.

Thanks

Hi Steven,
there are many solutions to clone hardrives, the one I use is Carbon Copy Cloner. It is Shareware (Donationware).

Thanks Mr. Matthias
The CCC seems a nice solution to my problem. My roommate suggested me to go for Stellar Mac drive Clone. Now, I have two options but none of the products have mentioned their compatibility with Mac Lion.
Please let me know if you have tried CCC at Mac Lion.

Hi Steven,
if you look at the help forums for CCC, you can see that it is supported under Lion. It might be best to ask there: http://help.bombich.com/

Let me try both of them and see the end result. Will be back with my experience with CCC and Stellar Drive Clone.


Thanks
