|Why Clonezilla can _NOT_ image from a large drive to a smaller drive? Any workaround?|
|It's not easy to implement such a feature, since Clonezilla now is a partition "imaging" tool, by "imaging", it means clonezilla actually does not know the files themself, clonezilla just knows where the used blocks are. Because of this reason, the target partiton size must be equal or larger than the original one so that clonezilla can restore the used blocks on that partition. If the target partitioin size is smaller, then it will go wrong.|
Unless Clonezilla has file-based function in the future. Maybe...
If you really still want to make this, check this FAQ, the doc here, this forum or the program fsarchiver.
