Are backups made with Carbon Copy Cloner bootable?

I didn’t find the answer to my question here:

When I backup all files to an external disk using CCC, is that copy actually bootable?

Up to (not including) Big Sur, yes. At the moment CCC is having some issues with Big Sur, but I expect that will be resolved.


Ok, good to know. I"m stll running Sierra, so I should be safe.
I’ll try booting once the current backup is finished.


Reportedly Apple fixed the bug in the Release Candidate for Big Sur, but I haven’t seen an updated CCC to test it out yet. I presume it will be available soon if Apple has truly fixed it.
