    can you just drag all the folders in macintosh HD and drop them to the
    connected hard drive instead of cloning the macintosh hd into the hard
    drive?

    This is obviously a very easy way. But to be practical not everyone has
    another Mac laying around.

    Let’s assume I have an iMac running Windows 7 only and six exactly the same
    Macs with empty HDDs. Would this method work with the Windows 7
    installation as well?

    Is it possible to install a SSD in yo Mac mini then connect to a macbook
    via thunderbolt and then clone the drive?

    My question — when you clone the drive, does the invisible recovery drive
    ALSO get copied?

    What USB port is that? I want one of those.

    Hi, if you had installed the SSD directly to your Mac Mini via USB 2.0,
    could you not just have made the cloning from Disk Utility with the Restore
    feature?

    Wow, I took out my hard drive, replaced it with my Kingston solid state
    drive and have put my hard drive into an enclosure…now I need to put my
    hard drive back and put the solid state drive into the enclosure and copy
    my hard drive data into the solid state drive… Enfuriating running around
    circles
