I am upgrading the hard drive in my 13" mid 2009 Macbook Pro. I need to make a bootable clone on an external drive that will not be installed/removed from the machine, which I have done,  the external drive now contains additional data that my current internal drive does not have (which I believe are the  "archived" files if I'm not mistaken?).



Before installing the new internal HD I have put it in an enclosure I have attempted to clone from the old external drive to my new internal drive (within the enclosure). I presumed cloning the external drive would make for a more complete backup of my data and when using CCC in future with my new internal drive I would not destroy any old files? I used the following setting when cloning…



Handling of data already on the destination: Temporarily archive modified and deleted items



Despite the destination being easily big enough, The problem with the clone is its only 232 GB and the source is 248 GB, why is this? I am open to suggestion for above issue(s).


Many thanks, all help appreciated.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
