Image Size: Partimage and Clonezilla


I cloned / copied the same partition: once using partimage and once using clonezilla.

The partimage file was about 3.5 GB while the clonezilla file was about 1.5 GB.

Has anyone experienced something similar?

Clonezilla uses a couple of tools (including partimage) in the background. Maybe they are not using the same compression level?

Maybe partimage is a sector based image while clonezilla is file based.
