USB Back Up Drive

By VitaSigns_CSI ·
I have a USB 1T Back-Up Drive.

My questions are:

Can a USB Back-Up Drive be cloned?

Does the Destination drive have to be the same size as source drive, if the files to be cloned are smaller than destination drive?

Which is really important....
When cloned, will it change any information such as Date Created, Date Modified, and really important, Date Accessed.

Any reply will be appreciated!

Yes it can

No it doesn't but this depends more on the Cloning Software used as different programs tend to work in different ways.

When cloned, will it change any information such as Date Created, Date Modified, and really important, Date Accessed.

Normally no it doesn't change anything but again this depends on the software that you use. Any Bit by Bit Copy will be a perfect Copy of the Original but I'm sure that it's possible to find some cloning software somewhere that will make modifications, it's just not the norm though.
