Having regular Macrium back-ups made of my current H/drive 500g to a 500g extn drive.

The H/drive is in need of up-grading to a larger capacity drive.

To transfer an image of my drive with Windows and all my files, should I clone or use the back-up I have to the new larger drive.

I think it would be faster to make the move with MR. Cloning you'll have to create the clone and then restore the clone. I think restoring the back up you create right before switching drives or just updating the current MR File and Folder back up will be much more accurate and faster than using windows Drag and drop or using the windows Move command. Another option would be to Create an Image and restoring that Image after you switch out Hard Drives Which might be your fastest way since MR creating an image will also compress that image. So it will restore faster and accurately than any file transfer method.
