Because it is NOT the right tool for the job; you asked, and were answered. Don't use 'dd' to make a bare metal recovery image, since it's not the right tool for the job. Others were mentioned.

Can you restore from dd, well, maybe. It is always best to test your backup.

No, they don't. If you don't want to take the advice you're being given, there isn't much point in asking a question. You have had numerous answers to this question...it's up to you whether you listen to folks or not.

But saying things like "CloneZilla and other tools use dd too!!!" is either misleading or wrong, depending on which tool you're talking about. Again, making a bare-metal restore image is **NOT THE SAME THING** as making a partition image.

To see how clonezilla copies a full disk: https://clonezilla.org/fine-print-li...ng-cloning.doc

Note that it uses sfdisk to create the partitioning on the destination disk.
