Clone VS Copy & Paste

When referring to PC cloning, many of you probably choose to copy and paste. As a matter of fact, copying & pasting is not cloning. Do you know what is the difference between them?

What's more, cloning not only ensures files are all the same but also guarantees the physical locations of files are the same as the source disk.
Copy & Paste: As the mentioned content above, simple copying can help to transfer a file from a location to another place, but some additional data including master boot record and the file allocation table can't be copied.
