Introduzione

You will be using Carbon Copy Cloner for this guide. Cloning a Hard Drive or a Solid State Drive is about as easy as it gets with CCC. Sadly, CCC is only available to macOS users and is not compatible with Linux or Windows. Sometime soon I will create a guide for Windows and Linux users.

  1. Download Carbon Copy Cloner from the Bombich Software Website.
    • Download Carbon Copy Cloner from the Bombich Software Website.

    • Install it onto your macOS based computer. You will need administrator privileges later, as well as to move CCC into the Applications folder on your computer.

    • You can download it here.

    • I used CCC 5 for this process and if the user interface changes in the future I will promptly update the guide.

  2. Once you are at the main screen of Carbon Copy Cloner, insert your SATA based SSD/SSHD/HDD into your enclosure and plug it into your Mac.
    • Once you are at the main screen of Carbon Copy Cloner, insert your SATA based SSD/SSHD/HDD into your enclosure and plug it into your Mac.

    • Under Source Disk, click your current HD/SSD. For example, my current drive is named "Macintosh SSD".

  4. Next, select your Target Disk. My target disk is named "Ubuntu". Your disk can have any type of name ex. "Pie".
    • Next, select your Target Disk. My target disk is named "Ubuntu". Your disk can have any type of name ex. "Pie".

  5. Lastly, click Clone.
    • Lastly, click Clone.

    • Enter your administrator Username

    • Enter your administrator Password

    • Then finally, click OK

    • This process can take up to 4+ hours depending on your disk size, so have some patience!

Conclusione

After you finish, install your new Hard Drive/Solid State Drive and test if it works. If it does not, try cloning again. If it still does not work after that, leave a comment and I will try my best to support you.

I have used CCC for years and years. It is an excellent program!

When upgrading MAC OS to a new version, I always clone a drive before starting the upgrade.

What if you have several volumes on each disk ? Does it scan the entire structure and boot options ?

CCC clones per volume, not per disk. So you have to clone each volume on their own, how many are bootable?
