I do face the following error message:
Did you unmount the OS partition when you first did that (quote) and I told you to exit and re-run Clonezilla? That's may be because you mounted the OS disk at first and you went back and it's still mounted because I don't see any sda (usually the OS drive) in the disk list.
Many thanks that worked fine so far, but what do I choice in Clonezilla?
How do I set that one? I would move it to the RAID or is that a bad idea?

I have never had any problem using clonezilla and I'm a n00b in Linux and all that stuff with SSH and I don't find it that complicated! Maybe I'm not explaining myself very good but after all, the program itself explains what every parameter does...
You explained very well I have to restart and hope I can get it done.
Thanks. If I miss and select a device as /home/partimag that I don't want to use, it's as simple as going back to command line and
where X is the device you want to unmount and then you're ready to go and run clonezilla again to select a new /home/partimag location wothout needing to reboot to Clonezilla.
Hope it helps other people in trouble
gsola is correct. It is best to create your backup folder in the root of one of your data drives before you even boot up to Clonezilla. I had old Tutorial on this as well. I call mine backup though. I have other subfolders for backups in that folder but Clonezilla images are placed in that folder not in a subfolder.
Nice job Gsola.
