I have a Thinkpad T420 that is four years old with a 500GB HDD and a dual-boot Windows/Linux Mint on it. I want to replace the HDD with a 250GB SSD, cloning only the Linux part (100Gb), totally ignoring the Windows one.
I am trying to use Clonezilla for this task but I am running into a space issue. Here are the guidelines I am trying to follow:
I got Live Clonezilla on a USB flash drive, inserted that and my SSD (via USB, too) in my laptop, finally I booted Clonezilla. The problem is:
- Clonezilla doesn't give me the option to choose only PART of the HDD. It only shows the entire 500GB HDD as source. Obviously, I can't "clone" the entire disk due to the lower size of the SSD. So, when I make these selections, as expected, I get the message that, in short, says "destination space is not enough!".
So what is the option, other than buying a brand new 500GB SSD?
