Aha, I think I have it. The phrase "Do not use Smart Update to selectively copy files to or from a clone" hinges on the word 'selective'. My initial reaction was "Hmmm, that's strange; the very nature of a Smart Update is that only SOME files are copied. Since Smart Update only copies some files, the key point here must be not to use Smart Update with a clone, which is weird." In other words, I didn't understand.

How about: "When the target is a cloned disk, only use Smart Update if the source is an entire volume. You’ll end up with the same result as if you had selected Erase, then copy, which probably isn’t what you want, because you'll get a copy only of the files specified in the source, which will effectively result in the destruction of your clone".

Thanks for helping me understand all this.
