    I have a 2010 Mac pro and i simply want to clone a 1tb internal drive (Does not contain OSX) to a new 2tb drive, can Disk Utility do this?

    Carbon Copy Cloner version 3.4.7 which is still free will do the job. It is available here. You have to pay for the latest version but this version runs fine on Yosemite. It will probably tell you it is not qualified but it works.

    Yes, you can: select the drive you want to clone in the list on the left, go to the "Restore" tab and drag the drive you want to clone it to into the "Destination" field. Click "Restore" and wait.

    There is no CCC 3.4.7 version in that link IMO, and I will never download anything from Softonic : they include malwares/adwares within the downloads.

    Disk Utility works fine. For the record, Super Duper will also do this for free.

    [[ There is no CCC 3.4.7 version in that link IMO ]]

    CCC 3.5.7 is available here, works all the way back to 10.6:
