Disk utility has RESTORE which will also clone your system but not the Lion Recovery partition. Oddly  Apple did not 'endorse' making bootable clone of the system which works too but most choose Carbon Copy Cloner - it works more consistently; it allows for smart update of the backup volume. Both can backup to a sparse disk image if desired.

all the items will be erase?

Nothing will be erased.

Only Apple-installed software will be replaced with working versions, provided it all works the way it is intended.


If you need to erase, several extra steps are needed.
