Use of cloning software

Two questions. (1) How is it that cloning will copy the operating system (amongst other things) and allow it to be installed onto another computer, possibly infringing the licence, and (2) if you want to access just one file from a cloned copy is that easy? I currently use Second Copy as a back up and the files it stores are accessible as easily as any other file.

I tried Easeus Todo Backup and it seemed to do the trick, and very easily. I was, however, alarmed to find at least one file empty when I came to look inside. This could have been a nasty moment if I'd actually wanted to restore that file.
