Smile clonezilla clone disk to image, when restore from image to destination hdd problem.

Hi, i am using clonezilla to clone my winxp pc(only have one hdd in this pc, than total size of this hdd is 40GB, only have 1 partition c:\, total use only 5GB. than i clone a disk to image, after that i using 10GB HDD to Restore this image, but fail, errors messages like not enought space, is it the source hdd cloned is 40GB than i using 10GB HDD to restore not enought space, but i am only used 5GB on that 40GB HDD, i am using 10GB to restore that image still enought space, but why got error???

is it clonezilla when i am clone disk to image, if i am using 40GB HDD, used only 5GB, than i restore from this image, using 10GB HDD got error because the original image is using 40GB HDD so i need to use back 40GB HDD or more than 40GB HDD?? but symantec ghost dont have this problem as long as the size of HDD enought to image size.

clonezilla is a cousin of partimage.

the data size is somewhat relevant...but the issue that is affecting you is...the restored image must install onto a partition size (equal or greater) than the old partition

so data size worries
old partition size 40G
new part size 10G

forgive me if I am reading your post incorrectly

if wrong post like my 3 lines please

Partimage problem: recognition of the new size of a bigger new partition

I used partimage to backup an logical partition (hda6) with Debian Hetch, with 6 Gb, to an other logical partition (hdb8) with 15 GB, in other hard disk, in the same computer (CP with 2 HDs IDE: 120 Gb and 320 Gb). The restore of the Debian Hetch to the new partitions occurred without problem and it is functioning perfectly (I think that there was no problem because the new partition is bigger than the old). But now, taping "fdisk -l" in a terminal of the Debian Hetch, it only shows the old size !! I changed the old to an new partition because there were no sufficient space to "apt-get dist-upgrade" (with "apt-get clean" first, sure!). And now, despite a partition size with 15Gb, as only 6 Gb is recognized, persist the problem when upgrading: there was a communication that "there are no sufficient space..." How can I correct this problem? There was some command to do to Debian Hecth correctly recognize the size of her new partition? Thanks very much for yours attention

do you have a live cd?

you should only copy and restore non-active partitions.

if you are restoring to a larger one....pls use the zero free blocks option
