Easy Backup Option (Mac OSX)


I am pretty fastidious about making backups of my memory cards before continue to ingest my footage into FCP. I'm a fan of Carbon Copy Cloner for hard drive backups, especially with incremental backups, but have never been able to use it for backing up non-HFS+ volumes.


Carbon Copy Cloner has just released an update with a wealth of features, inclusive of support for network drives and FAT32 and NTFS volumes. If you're familiar with CCC, you can now simply select your "CANON" volume, and backup its contents to a folder that you specify. CCC is fantastic for creating scripts for repetitive backups also, like processing the backup of multiple volumes as soon as they are mounted.

I'm particularly thankful that I can now backup my CANON volumes incrementally - meaning that I can backup, shoot more, and backup again to the same specified folder and only update changes. Final Cut Pro recognises these changes when opening the backup folder once again in Log & Capture.

Have a play with CCC if you're new - otherwise launch CCC for an update prompt.

That's really great about the incremental backups of the "CANON" volume. Thanks for posting!
