Simple Mode significantly reduces the number of user interface elements — the sidebar, toolbar, scheduling selector, and advanced settings are all suppressed, leaving the user with only three primary controls: Source, Destination, Start button. For users that desire a basic ad hoc copy from one volume to another and do not want to maintain scheduled tasks, this simplified interface is the perfect solution. To use Simple Mode, choose Simple Mode from the Carbon Copy Cloner menu.
Configuring a backup task in Simple Mode

Can I choose a network volume? How do I schedule this backup? Can I exclude items from the backup task?
Simple mode aims to simplify basic backup tasks. For additional options, choose Standard Mode from the Carbon Copy Cloner menu to switch back to standard mode.
Additionally, CCC must remain open while a task is running — if you quit CCC, a running task will be stopped (after a confirmation prompt).
