Has anyone used CloneZilla to make images of encrypted drives? Even if going from a 120GB or 250GB encrypted drive to a 500GB or 1TB drive (SSD, NVMe, SATA III), does not matter. I have cloned over 5000 drives in my life and this is a first when it comes to encyrption.
 
Wow - that is a process. I have found CloneZilla (linux based) is slow and bulky, and Home Partition Wizard (HPW) (commercial edition and free edition) is fast and easy, yet there is a problem.
 
CloneZilla seems to know how to fix the Linux partition GRUB (grub2) corrections needed after cloning where HPW does not. the HPW works fast and it looks perfect too, but it fails to fix the partition issues, and why, don't know yet.
 
Just seems to be the partition resizing should not matter, but it does.
