Winclone file size

newbie question, tried to look for info but still confused: my boot camp partition is 128gb with 47gb used, my winclone image file shows as 1.39gb in finder, is that ok?
Also tried to run a test restoring the image, the process is still less than halfway through after about 2 hrs, that also normal?

If it is a spinning platter drive, it can take a while especially with file-based images. As for the size, the Finder can obscure that. Try control clicking on the image, select “Show Package Contents” and look at the size of the WIndows.wim or boot.img.gz file.


thanks, I am traveling for work and don’t have my external drive for a few days; will try your suggestion and revert as soon as I am back

could you point me to an article where I can see the procedure to test functionality of the newly created image?
