When I boot from my backup, Little Snitch reports that its rules have been replaced by a different version. Why, and how can I avoid this?

Product:

According to ObDev developers, it is crucial for Little Snitch to avoid unnoticed ruleset changes. Little Snitch therefore has numerous mechanisms to detect whether it is using the exact same ruleset file, as in, on the same volume and at the same physical address on that disk. This sort of mechanism makes it impossible for Little Snitch to use the ruleset on the booted backup volume without physical intervention from a user at the system (thus the dialog asking if it's OK to use the current version of rules or to use a default ruleset).

Startvoorwaarden voor een geplande taak configureren

Product:

Soms is het plannen van taken op basis van een tijdschema niet voldoende om exact te beschrijven hoe u wilt dat uw taken worden uitgevoerd. CCC biedt startvoorwaarden, waarmee u het starten van uw taken kunt beperken onder bepaalde omstandigheden wanneer de taak normaal gesproken gestart zou worden.

Outgoing network connections made by CCC

Product:

If you're using an application firewall such as Little Snitch, you will see several outgoing network connections coming from CCC. We explain below what connections you should expect to see, and also explain why some connections that look unexpected are simply misreported by Little Snitch.

Ordinary activity

CCC will make external network connections for the following activity:

Creating a separate task to prevent VM container versions from bloating the SafetyNet

Product: 
ccc4

If you frequently use virtual machine container files (e.g. with Parallels, VMWare, VirtualBox, etc.), you may find that CCC's SafetyNet folder tends to get very large, very quickly. Every time you open your virtual machine, the monolithic virtual machine container file is modified, and CCC will require that it gets backed up during the next backup task. If the SafetyNet is on, CCC will move the older version of the VM container file into the SafetyNet folder.

Modifying CCC's Security Configuration

Product: 
ccc4

Rather than requiring you to enter admin credentials every time you want to run a task or make changes to a task, CCC 4 now only requires you to authenticate once when CCC is initially installed. While this new configuration is easier to use and has been requested by countless users, there are situations where this configuration is not appropriate. If you leave your system unattended with an admin user logged in, someone with physical access to your system can modify or run your CCC backup tasks.

Bestanden en mappen uitsluiten van een reservekopietaak

Product:

Standaard kopieert CCC alles van het volume of de map die u als de bron opgeeft. Als u niet elk onderdeel van de bron wilt kopiëren, selecteert u “Geselecteerde bestanden” in het venstermenu Kloon onder de Bronkiezer. Geef dan de onderdelen op die moeten worden uitgesloten van de reservekopietaak.

 

Geavanceerde instellingen

Product:

De geavanceerde instellingen van CCC zijn handig in bepaalde situaties maar zijn doorgaans niet vereist voor normaal gebruik. Sommige van deze instellingen zijn risicovoller. Wees daarom voorzichtig wanneer u ze gebruikt en stel gerust vragen via de menuoptie Stel een vraag over CCC... in het menu Help als de onderstaande uitleg niet volstaat voor uw specifieke scenario.

"My disk is already formatted HFS+, why am I getting this warning?"

Product:

If your disk is not partitioned using the scheme recommended and supported by Apple, CCC will indicate a warning when you start the backup task such as:

You may have difficulty booting from this destination volume, the underlying disk is not partitioned with a partitioning scheme that Apple recommends for Intel Macs.
