Cloning or back up from Time Machine?

MacBook 2008 13" Black

Hello everyone

I'm in the process of getting everything together for my replacement of my internal hard drive with a big shiny new one.

My question here is now- do I clone the applications/programs and content or will I be fine with the back up from my Time Machine?

Many thanks

There isn't really a good answer to this, because it really comes down to personal preference.

Time Machine is a great program IMO, but it's not prefect. It does get everything backed up, but you have to use the program to restore as well, and I've had issues with this. Especially when the backup drive has issues. And it can be more difficult to go in and retrieve files manually as well. You're locked into the Time Machine system. However, it is extremely easy to set up and maintains itself for the most part.

Clones are less simple to setup and maintain, but you can retrieve files easily with Finder, not having to use some program. And if something goes wrong, recovering the backup is usually a simpler process.

You're probably fine with Time Machine by itself. For me, having an extra backup is always nice just in case, but that's me. Like I said, it's all about personal preference.

My preference for this is to use an external enclosure or Universal Adapter. Hook up the new drive and use Disk Utilities to format it GUID, Mac Extended. Then download "SuperDuper and clone the drive. Make sure the new hard drive is backward comparable to 1.5 Gb/s. I have been using the Seagate SSHD drives for upgrades and have only had one that failed to format out of the last 15.
