VENTOY USB DISK TO DISK CLONE NOT WORKING - lotusheart - 11-27-2020

I made some changes as per needs in grub.cfg and ventoy.json for better use specially in graphic theme.

thats why i made disk image to acronics and r-image 
nothing worked after successfully restored 
Hang on GR, in Legacy mode and uefi getting warning msg 
what use of customisation and ventoy keeping as open source ? easy2boot aio creator and other few are really looking forward without restriction

Ventoy can't work as an image file.
You must follow the official instruction to use Ventoy. That's how Ventoy designed from beginning.

you didnt understood what i am said i am telling ventoy usb disk which made using ventoy2disk utility. that usb disk cloned into image file to restore another usb is not working 
usb 1 disk made using ventoy
now usb 1 to image file using acronics trueimage to clone
on usb 2 disk not working 
disk to disk clone existing ventoy setup disk not working 
because restrictions of 6055 sector which you entitled in your ventoy code.

how can it be open source if end user unable to make changes in existing system

I don't known how acronics trueimage works.
If you have 2 same USB drive(same size).
And you clone sector to sector from USB1 to USB2, then it will work.
Is the image file has the same size with the USB?
For example your USB drive 1 is 16GB, and the image file is 16GB?

If it is not 16GB, it is not a sector to sector clone.

Ventoy write data not only to the partition as normal files but also to MBR/partition table/GAP area...

Ventoy is 100% open source under GPL license.
You can modify the source code as you want if it doesn't meet your requirements.
If you think it's because of some check in the code, you can delete it and recompile it.
Or you can use other tools if Ventoy doesn't match your requirements.
