If my internal drive completely fails (head crash)...

and I have made a clone of my drive with SuperDuper and have that clone saved on an external drive that is formatted GUID (and nothing else is saved onto the external drive), can I then just physically take out the internal drive and replace it with the external clone? Or is there a way to do this kind of physical swap operation?

many thanks,
Phillip

As I said in my reply to your emailed question, yes, you can. Or you can put in a new drive and restore. Or you can start up from the external drive.
