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".

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

    • 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.
