I've jut got a new laptop with a 500GB SSD. The first thing that I've wanted to do is cloning the hard drive because I want to have an original copy of the entire system as is.
In order to do that I've flashed a USB pendrive with Clonezilla and tried to make an image using
device-image option and
I was expecting to have an image (something like an .img.zp file) with the same size of the source SSD, however I ended up with a folder with several files inside that takes only 14GB of space and it only took 10 min. the whole process.
Is this normal or have I messed up something along the way?
