I want to clone the smaller drive to the larger drive so I can
replace the smaller drive with the larger drive, so I need to
preserve the dual boot capability. I have tried the latest
testing-amd64 Clonezilla, but it fails. I tried the proportional
setting and it still failed.

How can I clone the smaller drive to the larger drive?

Thanks,

Mark
