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. Should I clone the macOS HDD to the SSD using Carbon Copy Cloner, or use my Time Machine backup drive and do a run of the mill restore operation on the new drive?
