Thanks for the answer. My version is 1.10.

I'll try with informations from another server with same hardware.

If you're using Rear 1.11, try setting USE_LAYOUT=y in local.conf. It
activates the newer, more flexible disk layout handling code.

Some documentation can be found at:
Restoring to a smaller disk is one of the use cases described in that
guide. It is based on the current snapshot builds, soon to be 1.12.

Note that snapshot releases have seen quite a few improvements in this area.

With older Rear versions, you need to hand-edit the various files in
the /var/lib/rear/recovery directory.
