USB 3.0 data transfer speed is fast

So I just got done installing a bunch of steinberg software I had purchased over the last 4 to 5 months. Everything seems to be working ok (registration, activation, elicense, etc.) and UR22MKII audio interface as well.

Thinking I might want to clone the OS drive before going any further and upon researching it, cloning seems to be different process than imaging?
