CopyCatX 3.0 released
SubRosaSoft.com today began shipping , updating its backup software for Mac OS X that boasts fast performance, optimized backup storage space, and drive recovery. CopyCatX 3.0 incorporates a backup feature and recovery function designed to work around media faults in order to create disk images from damaged media. The software's "resume" function allows the recovery process to continue after the damaged drive has cooled down, or after it has been restarted. The application also features automatic block matching for damaged media, such as scratched data CDs or physically damaged hard drives. CopyCatX uses sector copy, and skips blank space during the duplication process to increase speed. Additionally, the software offers a backup function that doesn't require a destination drive as large as the original. CopyCatX 3.0 is available for $80 via download, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
CopyCatX 3.0 offers cross-platform device copying, enabling a Mac to clone Microsoft Windows, TiVo, and Linux drives. The application can perform perfect cloning to preserve every detail of the original drive or volume, and includes proprietary resizing technology to regain lost space after a volume copy.
