I guess it's me, but this makes no sense at all.

The object of having "a backup" is to protect you against drive failure.
Thus, the backup should be an entirely different DRIVE than the source data.

As I posted above regarding time machine... the same "rule" applies to your CCC backups.
Each should reside "on its own drive", with nothing else on it.
At least one CCC backup should be stored "off-site" (out of the house).
