So the SSD isn't important, I don't think. I'm transferring files from one SSD to another. The original SSD was HFS+. I want to put these files on my newer APFS SSD in the Sonnet J3i. But several of the files are encryted or I assume might use some kind of protection. I'm trying to make this as painless as possible. It's not a boot drive. No OS on it. Music sounds from virtual instruments. Large iTunes library too.Is there a problem if I just copy or do I need to use Carbon Copy Cloner? I have and use Super Duper but I think CCC copies deeper?

I think CCC is the best option and will do a perfect job.
I've never used Super Duper , but I guess it will work too..
Because of protection etc. I assume it's saver to clone than to copy.
