I have an external hard drive for backups and a Macbook Pro. If I make a bootable drive using super duper, can I install that hard drive in another macbook I have just bought and use it as its resident drive?
I plan to back up this mac, convert the second drive to bootable, then put in Macbook 2. Hi, thank you for this detailed topic, very helpful. It made my mind more clear. I can expose what I would like to get: I have in hand a Gb for current running time machine but now running out of space and about to buy a 1Tb drive.
My thoughts are to get the 1Tb turned into a bootable clone, that I will renew monthly.
So far it is seems OK. But since in the clone n2 and following, the old folders will have been removed, I need to backup the Gb HD. I guess the easies way to think this through is the order of access. Just like how you put your sox on before you put your shoes on the encryption of the drive needs to be after the drive is accessible.

So here you would need to have first installed a full and proper OS on the drive then sure around and use the drive as your TimeMachine backup as the OS is not encrypted here the drive would boot and then when you got to the TimeMachine backup using a third party app you would have access to it. The other way which is convoluted would to have two partitions on this drive the first one not encrypted with your OS installed and then the second larger one for your encrypted partition with the TimMachine backup.
