Bare metal means restoring an image to a system other than the one it came from, more specifically, it means restoring with a different motherboard as the destination; the image has drivers for the motherboard it came from, not the one it's going to in a bare metal restore, so it's a more advanced procedure.
All imaging/restore software should have the generic USB 2.0 USB drivers required to access; not all or few will have USB 3.0 drivers so perhaps that is what was meant (restoring over USB 3 would be much faster and therefore desirable).
Only the basic clone or disk image/restore (depending on if you can hook up the destination drive at the same time or not) is needed to go from a smaller to larger drive. The new drive needs to be initilized so it is recognized but that's all.Sent from Windows ME thru Opera 10.63...just before they crashe
