OK, I am starting the following before going to bed:

Put the old HFS+ drive in a USB enclosure.

Boot off the old drive.

Use SuperDuper! to restore the the old drive to the APFS-formatted new drive.

Two questions:

Will this create the recovery partition like magic, and if not, how would I be sure to have the recovery partition?

Should I have specified APFS-encrypted instead of APFS when I formatted the new drive? I'm guessing that I can turn filevault on after copying, or failing that, re-restore everything.

Once again, thanks for any tips.
