[CentOS] Acronis True Image or Clonezilla

I want to clone a small (80GB) disk on my CentOS server
to a large (1.5TB) disk,
as smart has been giving me warnings of unreadable sectors.

Both disks are Western Digital,
and WD has a WD version of Acronis True Image.
I'm not sure whether to use this or Clonezilla.

My worry with Acronis is that I want to keep
the original disk, and I'm not sure
from the documentation if True Image allows this.

Any opinions on the better of the two?
