Had to Clone my storage drive 2 weeks ago with the latest version on clonezilla. I ran it from the CD drive and both HDDs were connected to SATA ports. Almost 1.5 TB worth of data. All of my Photoshop .psd files are corrupt and I have a lot since I am a Photographer. All the other files types are fine. Its only the .psd files that Photoshop cannot read. Hope this gets fixed soon.
Thanks.

    This is weird... Clonezilla actually saves and restores the blocks on the partition, not the files. So no idea why .psd files are corrupt but other files are fine.
    Does anyone have same issue?

    Thanks for the reply.
    I have just recently discovered other files now being corrupted. Mostly .exe files and still lots of PSD's. So I think I have to restate my question now. Its not just PSD's. I have to go back to the original drive and pull those files off to replace the bad ones.

    I don't understand what happened though, why so many files are corrupt.

    I suggest you do a memtest before taking an image. Most of these issues are about hardware. Otherwise in so many downloads and use cases, you won't be the only one reporting this issue.
    BTW, please remember to use the latest stable release.

    Ok thanks for that. I guess I should have mentioned the whole procedure I took.
    I had done the cloning with a new build, not the original computer the old backup data drive was installed on.
    Yes, the new build had been tested with the latest version of Memtest prior to using it. I did that when I built the system to make sure I would not have to RMA the ram. I have not had any problems with the new build. It had 16 GB of ram. I used new sata cables on both drives and did have the latest version of Clonezilla.

    Perhaps if the old drive is going bad, it would have caused this? I am still able to use the old drive though.

    "Perhaps if the old drive is going bad, it would have caused this?" -> It's possible.
    Anyway, backup all the data using different methods to make sure they won't vanish.
