There are many posts here with questions and issues around cloning, and also people who clone when what they really should be doing is imaging. I have not cloned at all, only created disk images and done restores, so I'd like to ask: What is benefit of cloning? What does cloning offer that a backup image does not? If moving to a larger drive, one can still use a backup image as an image can be restored to a larger drive and, IIRC, you can choose to use the larger space available on the new drive. So, when would you want to clone rather than image/restore?
