Cloning disk using Apple’s Disk Utility

I want to clone the disk of my MacBook Pro in case the original disk fail, I can replace it with the one I cloned and have the system up and running again quickly.

Here are the steps:

  1. Start/restart your Mac and hold down the Command and R keys at startup.
  2. Start the “Disk Utility” and click on the “Restore” tab.
  3. Drag your old volume (indented) to the Source field.
  4. Drag your new hard drive to the Destination field.
  5. Click “restore” and it then will start copying over to your new disk.

That’s it!
