Introduction

Using Acronis True Image 2019 you can duplicate all your data and make macOS bootable on your new hard drive via Disk Cloning. You can use this to migrate to a new Mac computer or to clone the system to an external HDD and have a bootable copy of the system.

Keep in mind the following limitations:

  • Only an entire disk can be cloned, not selected partitions.
  • Fusion Drives are supported as a cloning source and/or destination starting from Update 2 (Build 14610)

For more information about Disk Cloning Utility see product documentation.

Solution

To clone your Mac disk follow the steps below:

  1. If you have Parallels Desktop virtual machines running on your Mac, make sure that they are turned off.
  2. Make sure that the source and destination drives are connected to your Mac. If you need to connect another Mac, make sure that it is connected in target disk mode. Refer to product documentation for details.
  3. Open Acronis True Image 2019. On the sidebar, click Disk Cloning

  4. By default, your internal system drive is pre-selected as a cloning source. If you want to change it, click the cloning source icon, and then select the drive that you want to clone.

    When you start the cloning operation, the destination drive will be formatted, and all of the data stored on it will be irreversibly erased. Make sure that the disk is empty or does not contain valuable data.
  5. Click Clone to start the cloning operation.

  6. If the destination disk contains data, Acronis True Image will ask for user confirmation to format the target disk. Click Format to proceed
