Using Clonezilla Live to run image backup of server.  External backup drive is 3TB drive (2.72TB, Used space (the completed Clonezilla) is 1.28TB, Free is 1.43).  However, Clonezilla seems to only recognize 2.0 TB capacity and stops backup at 96.91%. Prior to the backup the drive is basically empty.

Clonezilla does not work with 2TB+ drives (GPT drives) according to your report.
Did you check the surface of your backup source drive?

Never mind.  Deleted some files and ran backup again.

Please close this question.

No one had definitive answer, so I was able to delete files and reduce size of backup.
