Although there are many tools available for cloning a hard drive but after using most of the tools for back up HD, I prefer Stellar Drive Clone. This tool has successfully cloned my SSD drive to Mac drive.

CCC is one of my favorite tool to clone Mac. Cloning is very important for keeping your precious data safe from losing.

Please help. I followed the instructions for my external HD, and now everything that was on it is gone. Can you please help me?
Thanks

The CCC is excellent tool to take care of incremental backup. For creating a clone os my Mac OS X, I used it but it was too slow. So, I tried the Stellar Drive Clone to copy my running Mac OS X.

Well, I created a second partition on the USB drive and cloned my hard drive with Carbon Copy Cloner on this second partition. And yes, it is bootable. Just an FYI... :)

Does the USB drive need to be empty to clone an internal hard drive, or does it just need to contain enough space?

Also, could you partition the USB drive and use one partition for the clone while the other retains other data?

Thanks! :)
