  10. Select sdb1 as image repository, then choose "restoredisk" option
  11. Select image name and destination disk
Now we have to mount the image repository.
Choose "local_dev" option to assign sdb1 as the image home


There are other options, e.g. sshfs, samba, nfs or webdav, AWS S3 or Openstack Swift , you can use when network is available. This is very useful when 2nd local disk is not available.
Since we choose "local_dev" option, we can use 2nd disk or USB flash drive to save 1st disk's image. If using USB flash drive as repository, inster USB flash drive and wait a few secs.


Clonezilla will scan the disks on the machine in every few secs, and show you the results:


Once you see the device you have inserted shown on the status, you have to press Ctrl-C to quit the scanning report.
