    Have a question hope is not too silly, what is the difference between Imaging and Cloning from a practical point of view, or when to use each.
    I do my Imaging, keep it updated via regular appended updates etc, in case of disaster I can then recover via a restore of my Image.
    Now when,why and how will I have to use the clone module?
    thank you
    David

    Clone would be normally when you are installing a new primary or slave drive because your main dive or slave is failing or you just want a larger or faster drive. When you clone the drive image is exact and not compressed.

    A new primary drive would be set as slave then you would clone your OS to that drive it would be bootable just like your original drive, after cloning remove old drive insert new primary drive with jumper to master.

    hope this help you....
