    Hi all,

    New to using clonezilla so sorry if daft question.
    Should I be using partition backup instead of full disk image to prevent future potential problems as ssd ages and in effect becomes smaller as it reports smaller size?

    Was just doing image backups but then read this thread https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/discussion/Clonezilla_live/thread/0e9ffb51

    cheers

    A full disk image will include all the partitions. With that, you can restore only part of it, i.e. one of partitions.
    The key is, the destination partition size must be equal or larger than the source one.

    Steven.
