Thanks. I have current backups and use Carbon Copy Cloner (but still on CCC5). That said (and I mention/ask this in case you have an answer or comment about it)....

I'll have to double-check to see if it is bootable, as I read that starting in Big Sur (which obviously I'm still not to yet), CCC has no guarantee of an external bootable device (https://bombich.com/kb/ccc6/cloning-...ftware-restore) In any event, I definitely have a current clone of the entire drive and system folders/hierarchy.....I suppose I'll have to find out if it's bootable and/or contains the OS.

Is a Disk Image the same thing as a bootable backup???
