Mavericks: Known problems
Before you upgrade to Mavericks:
CNET has reported a Mavericks-specific problem with some external hard drive enclosures configured with third-party disk utilities. These problems are unrelated to CCC, but due to the nature of these reports, we are recommending extreme caution when upgrading your system to Mavericks if you have a third-party disk configuration utility installed on your Mac. Please see this Apple discussion for additional details.
Errors writing to a Windows SMB sharepoint
Similar to reports that we've seen elsewhere on the Internet, we have received reports of problems writing to some Windows SMB sharepoints on Mavericks (directly and to disk images hosted on the sharepoint).
Workaround: Mount the sharepoint with a "cifs" URL via the Finder's "Connect to server" option in the Go menu. See this article for a longer explanation of the problem and the workaround.
