I have a system running Clonezilla SE which I use to restore images to machines. I cannot, however, save a disk to an image. I boot the system that I want to image into Clonezilla (via pxe) and choose to save disk as an image. It starts to calculate the bimap and with seconds it dies with the error:

"Failed to use partclone program to save or restore an image!"

I've read here (and a few other places) to select the option

"-fsck-src-part-y"

in the menu but this has no effect. I still get the same error. Switching the mode to dd is not a valid option either as we image a lot of large drives very often and dd handles this very slowly.

Any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

    "Failed to use partclone program to save or restore an image!" -> Could you please take an photo about the error messages on the screen then post it?
