CopyCatX 4.0 ships
SubRosaSoft.com today shipped CopyCatX 4.0, its software-based drive duplication and recovery system for Mac OS X. It features a completely Universal Binary application for native Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs, a new and streamlined user interface, multiple-targets duplication support, and a dual-bootable CD to support a wide range of Macs. CopyCatX utilizes sector copying instead of the "file-by-file" copy employed by most backup software. "Sector copy is extremely fast and enables a user to retain every detail of the original drive -- from bootablity to the icon locations," the company said. "CopyCatX is neither file nor OS dependent; it can quickly and easily make an identical copy of Linux, Windows, Macintosh, or TiVo based drives."
CopyCatX is now available on a dual-boot CD, allowing users to boot both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs quickly and easily; it supports most Macs ranging from G4s to the latest Mac Pro. For administrators who need to deploy multiple drives or machines with identical content, it offers a multiple targets copying function that enables users to duplicate multiple drives simultaneously. SubRosaSoft CopyCatX requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later and is available for $50 ($10 more for CD). Upgrades are $20 ($30 on CD).
