Clonezilla: saving image fails

Hi Everyone,

I'm currently trying to implement an imaging system running off ubuntu 7.04 using DRBL and Clonezilla. I've successfully got the machine I want to clone to boot and backup to the server... the only problem is, when it finally finishes backing up, this is the error message I receive:

100.00 percent completed
cat: write error: Permission denied
/opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-functions: line 249: date: command not found
Checking the disk space...
/opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-functions: line 119: /dev/null: Permission denied
/home/partimag is full! No space left on device!
The saved image file /home/partimag/22007-08-21-08-img/sda1.ntfs-img is incomplete! You have to increase the disk space, then start clonezilla save mode again.
Program terminated!!
Press Enter to exit...

The strange thing is... there's plenty of disk space remaining. Also, I changed the permissions on everything within that folder (and the folder itself) to 777. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have a deadline to meet in two weeks (and cloning one computer at a time just isn't cutting it).

Is it possible you may be trying to write to a file as you read it? Or maybe it is a permission of privileges. Would you be willing to post the script (I assume you are using a script)?
