    I want to:

    * Clone my internal hard drive to my external one. (I believe this is possible with the 'disk clone' feature)

    * [Test a few things out]

    * Copy the external hard drive contents back to the internal hard drive.

    Is it possible to do this with your product? Or can I only create disk images to do this? (I didn't really understand whether or not this is possible by reading information about the product on the website)

    Assuming that you're going to use ATIH 10.0

    a. Yep, you will be able to clone disks. Check the corresponding chapter in user guide.
    b. in fact, you can do it, but the clone tool option is for another purpose, i.e. transfer data from old drive to a new one.

    In your case, I wouda recommend jus create full backup image onto ext drive, test wat ya need on the internal and then using restore option restore the image as it was.
