    What's the best way to do this?

    CCC the 2 machines to External HDD then boot from USB drive - Anything else I'm missing?

    I'm upgrading a 2010 Mac Mini and a 2012 Mac Pro both from 10.10.5. Have always upgraded these machines since their stock OS version and have never done a clean install so I think it's a good time to do it.

    Thanks!

    Can you do a time machine backup for all of those machines once and clean install, then manually import needed data by exploring inside backup?

    TBH I'd just stick with what works for you. I've never decided to do a clean install either, each upgrade has just worked.
