Default Additional Information

So I promised additional information. Here is the contents of my Clonezilla backup directory:

[----@----------- 2009-02-22-21-img]$ ls
disk                 sda-mbr        sdc-pt.sf
Info-dmi.txt         sda-pt.parted  sdd1.dd-img
Info-lshw.txt        sda-pt.sf      sdd1-size
Info-packages.txt    sdb-chs.sf     sdd-chs.sf
lvm_logv.list        sdb-mbr        sdd-mbr
lvm_vg_dev.list      sdb-pt.parted  sdd-pt.parted
lvm_VolGroup00.conf  sdb-pt.sf      sdd-pt.sf
parts                sdc-chs.sf
sda1                 sdc-mbr        VolGroup00-LogVol00
sda-chs.sf           sdc-pt.parted
I believe the backup file is 'VolGroup00-LogVol00' but it is confusing because it does not end with 'img' -- but maybe that means nothing.

If I type 'file VolGroup*', here is what I get:

VolGroup00-LogVol00: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Sun Feb 22 14:58:30 2009, max speed
So then, per the Clonezilla FAQ (referenced at the Ubuntu forum I linked to in my OP), I enter 'cat VolGroup* | gzip -d -c | ntfsclone --restore-image -o /home/partimag/sde2/test.img -', I get:

ntfsclone v2.0.0 (libntfs 10:0:0)
ERROR: Input file is not an image! (invalid magic)
But it has to be the image because that is the largest file in the directory. Anyone have any ideas?
