I am upgrading the HDDs in all our computers. I had no problem cloning (Acronis True Image) the PC, installing HDD and copying everything, including OS to new drive......Now on the MacBookPro I seem to not have the same options on the Acronis True Image software (same software, bought 3 computer "PC & Mac"). There is a backup option but no cloning option. I am afraid if I only do backup it will not do the iOS. Any help will be appreciated.

Update - I did the backup and the computer will not recognize the external drive it's on.

Guess it doesn't clone then.

Good job there is Carbon Copy Cloner which you can use on a free trial for this, it WILL clone the entire drive and the recovery partition too. Highly recommended.
