Good to get confirmation, it's been my usual approach since I became a Mac user. Thanks for the replies.

Agreed.  I complete trust the Mac OS cloning/recovery interface, Windows not so much.

Ken,

Why clone?  Is there software that you want to transfer but don't have install files for or something?  Otherwise, I think it's always best to start with a fresh install of the OS.

All the instructions I found specified cloning, so I didn't think of a fresh install.  I see the advantage of a fresh install.  The advantage of cloning is that it's simpler than a fresh install, just 1 step instead of 3 or more (back up user files, do install, restore user files) for a fresh install.

Since I have no experience at either of these, I'll explore the fresh install route.  So far I have the SSD initialized and formatted.  Now I can worry about putting the files on it.

Macrium Reflect has worked well for me in the work situations where cloning was needed.

 

I prefer to do a clean/fresh install as well, but dread the time and work needed to get everything reinstalled and configured. I've been putting off upgrading my primary 120GB SSD to a 500GB I've already purchased for months now. -_-
