Clonezilla is still broke from my point of view, I mean by that that it doesn't run from my desktop.
Never used it before so I could be wrong but none of the above worked.
I just used clonezilla last week to image a small xfs flash drive.
Restored the image to a different flash drive and it worked fine.
Used the beginner's settings which defaulted to a partimage
type backup, but, it worked without problem.
It is hard to configure sometimes, when selecting a dd backup/restore
from the expert settings and switch on something that doesn't work.
One reason for a failure. Is there a terminal message you could post ?
