Hello guys, 

 

I am trying to clone my OS drive using Clonezilla. I have a freshly installed Win 7 which is using about 14GB of space on a 160GB HDD. I don't want to clone the extra partition space. I just want to clone that 14GB OS space and apply to other laptop. How do I go about doing this using Clonezilla and in its options?

 

Please help.

Personally, I would recommend you do the clone with either Macrium Free or Aomei Backupper, also free. Both will let you do a System Clone. Aomei though requires you to enable System Clone via Facebook or you can download the unlocker direct

For clonezilla you would select local Partition to local partition clone, not local disk to local disk

No problem. I think you will find Aomei does the job very well.
