Clonezilla clone to smaller drive

by Peter Quiring   Last Updated November 14, 2017 18:01 PM

I've got a 285GB drive that I want to clone to a 256GB SSD drive. The larger source has 2 partitions which I've shrunk the 1st main partition down so the total size of both partition will fit. But the 2nd partition if restored in the same location would extend beyond the 256GB size. There is a large gap between part 1 and 2. The 2nd part is the boot part. Will Clonzilla remove the gap or will it mess up if I use the -icds option? What about the -k1 option (create the partition table proportionally) but that seems only for going to larger disks.

I guess I could use gparted to "move" the part but in my experience gparted corrupts NTFS drives 50% of the time.
