The original partition was 16gb and the current partition holding the
image file is 26gb. Now, I'm not trying to restore the image, but I'm
trying to mount the image as a loopback device so I can just grab a
few files I need from the backup. Not sure I really understand the
limit here. The backup with Clonezilla is just a block-by-block image
of the partition using partclone. Is the limit something imposed by
the loopback device?
Mounting may not be possible then. I may try just throwing another
external drive with a blank partition and restoring to that partition.

Yes, went over this faq extensively, but since this is not an NTFS
drive I used the partclone.restore command.
