    Yeah its great tool i had used a file recovery tool for mac when my files got corrupted and i was not able to access my data then i used Stellar Phoenix Mac File Recovery software which helps me and recovers my all data and files….

  • K3V1N

    Okay, it seems that it should work using that way, but im thinking, wouldn’t it be easier if okay, i have a new blank hard drive (no USB can connect here – for macbooks), and i have another harddrive with USB, so I’m thinking I can back up my data from Time machine (everything) then when i replace my new hard drive (the macbook one) i can restore it from there and it would be a perfect copy, do u think it works? Please help me….

    Thanks

    I believe using Time machine backup your data to external hard disk is more safer.

  • ranvir

    I support cloning Mac disk with some third party tool. The reasons are
    1. You can create clone on external drive / network drive
    2. You can restore your Mac drive even after a hard drive crash.
    3. More reliable than Time machine

    There are some free and paid tools as well to create clone of your Mac. CCC and stellar drive clone are popular ones.

    Does it copy recovery HD. I am asking this because its not mentioned at site’s page like that of Stellar Drive clone.

    • Rose winslet

      Yes, After reserch I found that CCC can also backup Recovery HD. When you do a block level backup of startup drive, CCC will automatically clone the Recovery HD means you don’t have to go into Disk Center and click on the “Recovery HD” tab. But if you do a file-level backup, then CCC will not clone the Recovery HD onto backup volume. It will just place a disk image of it (Recovery HD) within Library/Application Support/com.bombich.ccc/ on backup volume.
      But despite above features of CCC I found this a bit complicated that’s why I have switch over to Stellar Clone drive because of its easy and automatic way of cloning Recovery HD when you perform Block level cloning type.
      So, I prefer to use this software for backup and Restore your Mac.
