If you attempt to clone a drive with bad sectors WITH resizing* of partitions (because you're cloning from a larger drive to a SMALLER drive), cloning will fail.
However, if you image the drive first and then restore it to the smaller drive with resizing of partitions, the restoration is successful.
This may be a bug or design limitation.
Version: 7.2.5107
Both of the above were performed using Macrium bootable rescue media.

*Resizing was accomplished per Macrium:

Interesting find, although you may want to include your full Reflect version, as there have been lots of Reflect 7.2 builds over the last 2 years.
