A tip first and then a question:
Actually, there is a work-around to get CCC to function in Tiger: open CCC by using
sudo open in Terminal.
My question is about the "clone" capability of Disk Utility. Does using the "Restore" command of Disk Utility to "clone" your boot drive work as well as CCC does to create an identical bootable clone? Are there any drawbacks to using Disk Utility for this purpose?
