Hi. Starting to make sense. Thanks Patrick.

I've used CCC (yes update to 5 a while back) for many years.
And I'm happy with it. I back up my IMac
as well as all my external FCP and photography drives
I have never used Time Machine.
I think I will in the future once this is set up.
I've heard that Time Machine does full backups in case of a dead internal drive
and you never know when Apple will not let a third party work with the latest update.
But so far I have no problems with CCC.

"Migration Assistant to copy user data files and settings from the internal drive to the external drive..."

This is where I have questions.

Does using Migration Assistant still keep the update clean?

There was a time that was not considered clean by video editors.

Will all my Mail and Messages be put where I had them (folders and so forth) with Migration Assistant update?

Will Aperture still work? Even though its not updated, I still have old photos that were
edited with it. And sometimes I use another app to process RAW and then use Aperture sent by Tiff for certain edits. Less and less but sometimes Aperture brushes or color correction get the job done. Do not want to use a monthly amount for a photo app. And do not want to pay full amount for an update.

Still haven't found a home since Aperture was EOL. I'm going to try On 1.
