If a Clone is an "Exact Duplicate" of the Drive being backed up, please explain the following terminology when using Backup - all files:

"All files on Macintosh HD will be copied to Backup, except the temporary and system-specificfiles that Apple recommends excluding"

Exactly what files are not copied? How is this then an "Exact" Duplicate?

Thanks,
Jerry:confused:

We leave off temporary files, VM Swap Files, and some caches. These are files that generally shouldn't be copied, or have no meaning across a restart.

Thanks for clarifying that! The confusion is now erased!
