    I've got a mid-2012 MBP with a 750GB HD. I used CCC to clone the original 750GB to a larger, 1.5TB HD. I swapped the drive and it went smoothly (after I renamed the new drive to have the same name as the og drive so the Home directory could be found). I just checked the used space, and the original drive uses 12GB more space than the new drive. Any reason why this could be?

    I'm pretty sure that CCC and SuperDuper don't copy the system cache files.
