  9. Select sdb1 as image repository, then choose "restoredisk" option
  10. Select image name and destination disk

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.
