LR Backup Question

When LR imports I've had a duplicate go to a second hard drive, where files show as "Imported April 2, 2021" etc.  I've also been cloning my hard drive to the second hard drive, but I now realize I'm duplicating files on that drive taking extra space.

My question is will LR find the "imported on...." files if I lose my first hard drive, or would the cloned drive be a better option as I don't want duplicate backups on the drive.

Having LR back up the files happens each time I import so it's always up to date, but if it won't find the files later without extra work I'll just have to clone more frequently.

Thanks for your help.
