Re: Copy vs. Clone -- what's the difference?

Copying is done to files, and it alters the datestamp and permissions on the resulting file. Cloning is done to parts of harddrives, and it makes a 1 on 1 copy of that part of the drive. Both have their advantages, depending on what you want to do with the result.
