can't restore to small disk



  • I have two sizes of disks (250gb ssd and 500gb) on my clients.

    Time ago when I prepared the image on the 500gb drives and restored on the 250gb disks I was not able to receive the clone image created on big drives to the small drives…

    I use “1 drive resize” option . I am not sure, but I remember that the problem was not happening since a revision that solved this.

    But now the problem has returned!. I have tried partclone +gzip later partclone+ zstd and the problem remains.
    When I clone the client I receive from partclone the message :0_1528980911598_problem.png

    If I prepare the image on a 250 disk, the problem (off course)dissapears. the empty sizes of the drives are enough to work (the image size is 150 gb uncompressed and 79gb compressed on the server)

    Maybe the -c option was out and has returned?

    @salginer The partition layout looks pretty straight forward. Is your Windows partition bitlocker encrypted? Run manage-bde -status C: in a admin command shell.



  • d1.partitions
    label: dos
    label-id: 0x86308630
    device: /dev/sda
    unit: sectors

    /dev/sda1 : start= 2048, size= 280064, type=7, bootable
    /dev/sda2 : start= 282112, size= 976491008, type=7

    d1.minimun.partitions
    label: dos
    label-id: 0x86308630
    device: /dev/sda
    unit: sectors

    /dev/sda1 : start= 2048, size= 58102, type=7, bootable
    /dev/sda2 : start= 282112, size= 976491008, type=7

    d1.fixed_size_partitions
    :2

    @salginer Can you provide the contents of d1.partitions, d1.minimum.partitions and d1.fixed_size_partitions from this image you are trying to restore to the smaller disk. It’s most probably some kind of special partition layout issue causing the error.
