Windows 7: What is CanonicalData in HKLM registry hive and where did it come from

What is CanonicalData in HKLM registry hive and where did it come from

The HDD in my laptop started having sector errors. I was able to "repair" them enough to get a full backup and clone the drive to a new drive. When I boot up the new drive, I have some hiccups (Aero not working for example). When I export the hives out the registry for each drive, the new one has an HKLM hive that is almost twice the size of the original drive. It contains many sub-hives with "CanonicalData" in the name. These do not exist on the original drive. Where did all these entries come from? And, is this somehow related to my performance issues and errors?

I used Acronis True Image 2013 "Disk Clone" operation to create the disk copy. Is there something happening there that caused this?
