    Errors when booting from a backup. Any thoughts?

    Hi everyone, I had a failed upgrade attempt and am trying to utilize my backup HDD. My original was a 1TB SSD and I have a 1TB HDD backup which I cloned using "dd" in terminal and Carbon Copy Cloner, before upgrading. My EFI partition was copied successfully along with a functional Mac OS...

    I have cloned my EFI partition and HDD with CCC and "dd" in termainl. However, when I boot into a backup I created, none of my little snitch settings are there, I have no internet, and I had to set the system onto the nvidia driver again. I have access to the original system, how can I have...

    I'm setting my first build and I was wondering if I can make a bootable backup from a High Sierra APFS SSD to an HFS HDD? Or will that mess up my backup?

How can I do this with High Sierra and its apfs file system? I tried to do so by checking the list view option at the top left corner of Disk...

    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...

    Compatible with High Sierra

    Hey all, it's been forever since I tinkered with this stuff (more or less running smoothly since install) and I was wondering if my system is compatible with High Sierra. I know what a hassle it can be to update but I really want a new update on some software that needs a more current OSX. I am...

    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.

    Backup System Configuration

    Ok, so this is a very noob question so bear with me. I've High Sierra 10.13.3 installed, and I didn't manually configure the System ID, Serial Number, Hardware UUID, MLB, ROM, etc values. I just did a clean install and everything worked (which btw is cool! Thanks to you guys!). But now how can...

    General build tip: building for backup

    Just sharing: my build uses a "cage" - an access for removable drive(s) that means I can insert or remove a drive without opening the case. Here's an example of one. There are many: Why, besides convenience? Because I keep the boot...

    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...

    Best way of backup

    Good morning, A few days ago, after trying to get HDMI audio to work on my HD530, my build broke so I had to freshly install it. The same happened after I installed other kexts as well. Fortunately it is a brand new build so I didn't lose any important data. I hate to format my hard drive every...

    Backing up questions ("dd" command, SuperDuper, Time Machine). Preparing to upgrade OS.

    I am getting ready to upgrade my OS from Mountain Lion 10.8.2 to either El Capitan or Sierra. I unplugged my 128GB SSD boot drive and plugged it into my dad's CentOS 6 machine (which BTW couldn't read or mount the hfs+ Mac OS Extended(Journaled) file-system). On that we used the dd command "dd...
