    Boot HDD to SSD, Clone or Restore? (High Sierra)

    I've been putting this off for ages, but yesterday a windfall rekindled my interest. I received a refund from Amazon in the form of a gift card. I'm tempted to spend it on a 1TB SSD (2.5" form factor) and use it to speed up my old reliable 10.13.6 hack that also boots Win10 from another HDD...
