    Bootable backup boots but passwords don't work

    I've created a bootable backup using Chronosync (I have paid for the software anyway, and it has this function so use it instead of SuperDuper and CCC). However, Chronosync has created a bootable backup - but one where the passwords for both my main and test account are not recognised. I've...

    EFIClone - automatic backup of the EFI partition

    I'm glad to present the first version of EFIClone - a shell script that, when combined with either Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper!, will allow fully automatic, one-step backups of bootable Hackintosh hard drives.

    Disk Cloning Backup Scheme Recommendation

    I'm curious what the best backup scheme is for a Hackintosh. On my regular workstation, I run Carbon Copy Cloner so that I have a bootable backup. If a Hackintosh fails, it is sufficient to do the same thing? Do people also clone the EFI partition, or do they just rely on having a properly...
