I have cloned the drive and restored back after cancellation but it seems to me that nothing has changed in terms of speed. Is Superduper actually using the same cylinders / areas when restoring or on an empty drive behavior should be different?

Best Regards

No, we don't use the same cylinders. The files area is roughly defragmented because -- when you erase -- when we copy the files back, they're all defragmented (although not necessarily "optimized").

But, defragmenting doesn't necessarily mean "speed increase"... the OS is pretty good about keeping files pretty defragmented, and the hot files cache does a good job too...

Thanks. Then, it's simply three years old of combo updates...
