Clonezilla no option to restore from image


I've stored 3 images to home partition on Debian machine, now I'm trying to restore image from Debian machine to usb hdd, and there is no option to restore from image.
The version of clonezilla that I'm using is clonezillla-live-maverick.

Update I didn't let Clonezilla run far enough thinking that it was going to over-write my home partition.
Anyway there is a restore option but when run it can't find saved home/partimage. Well when it saved my images no partimage directory was created it only created the 3 images each in own folder with date.
The 1 I'm trying to restore is labeled as 2010-12-11-06-img-acer-backup.
Location: /home/username

Since it's looking for images in directory is there a way to create directory and copy or move folders to it?

Generally it gets you to map where ever the image currently is to /home/partimage. So just mount it that way and you should be good to go.

Well image was found by selecting directory with username, but when I went to restore it said it found no unmounted drives.So I assume that I'll have to learn commands since after image is found the drives aren't being automatically unmounted.

The image is for a filesystem, not for a directory. Restoring it will replace the filesystem on the partition.

If it is a binary bit-for-bit image, and not compressed you can mount it using the loop device and access or copy files from it.

sudo mount -t <fstype> <imagefile> -o loop

This part is not issue anymore.

The image is of original 40 gig hdd for my acer laptop.
I used clonezilla to store on Debian machine.
I was tying to restore the image of acer laptop from Debian machine to new 160Gig hdd using clonezilla-live-cd but it said drives were still mounted and stopped.

This thread marked as solved, due to operator error.
1. Restoring clonezilla image had nothing to do with file permissions
2. Wasn't getting all the information, necessary had to google for a more thorough tutorial, with the big pictureshttp://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/f..._software.html
There was another that gave more detail, but, this 1 was sufficient.
3. Fear of continuing on and overwriting wrong partition.
