Cloning or Imaging Hard Drive, which approach should I choose?
Cloning and Imaging files are almost identical in the sense that they provide the assurance that your data will be safe for future use. For Imaging, it has more versatility as it provides compression of your data so you could do several images on a single high capacity external drive. While for cloning, once your existing hard drive crashes, you just simply swap the hard drive where your clone data were stored.
