The latest Beta 3.3 of Super Duper! will clone the EFI partition also - just cloned my Catalina boot drive over to a USB 3.0 drive. No need to copy over the EFI folder.

No joy here. The last 2 Beta's (B4, B5) of Super Duper 3.3 did not backup my EFI partition.

@trs96 I realize ATI is a great bit by bit clone tool. I own ATI 2019 and use the bootable version to perform drive cloning on my other systems that have the same size storage devices or a larger backup drive. My current situation is I'm trying to clone a NVME Samsung 970 500 GB to a Samsung 860 500 GB SSD without success. The NVME 970 500 GB is actually 128 mega larger than the 860 500 GB SSD so the clone utility fails. I realize there are several work arounds that require further action. Both super duper and CCC will perform the clone operation however, the EFI partition is not cloned. Again I realize there is also a work around for this. My response was to vlad1966 post about super duper beta being able to clone the EFI thus resulting in a bootable backup without any further action.

Any further enlightenment is welcomed.

In your situation I would use CCC and manually copy over the EFI folder to the EFI partition of the cloned drive.

This is probably the best price you'll ever see for legit licenses (3).

12/11/19 Current best deal: 3 Acronis licenses for $10.55 each -- Use the Promo code for $20 off. EMCUVUT27


Once you get your licenses you've got three options. 1) Install it on a PC running Windows. 2) Install it on your Mac/Hack running El Capitan or newer. 3) Create the Windows PE rescue USB with Acronis and boot from that to make clones/backups of either your Windows PC or your Mac/Hack. The most complete backup and cloning software you can buy. Perfect for a hackintosh dual boot system. If it's easier to make clones of your system drive you'll be more likely to do that instead of putting it off.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All of the ATI 2020 licenses being sold on Ebay and elsewhere for 8 USD or less are being pirated and delivered to you via email with a "download" link. As you already know, it's a very bad idea to feed the pirates by giving them your money. Even if it's only $3.39. Go through Newegg or Amazon instead.

Here's one example:

It's impossible to sell a genuine license for $3.39 ! (Unless the seller is losing money on the sale)
