The hard drive on my laptop is making noises so I purchased a slightly smaller hard drive (existing HD 120 GB, new HD is 100 GB) and I am trying to use Vista's back up and restore feature.
The active partition is 60GB and I backed it up to my external USB drive and that went well, but when I try to restore the image (which says is only 44 GB large) to my 100 GB drive I get an error message saying that the drive is too small.
Is there anything I can do to copy image from a larger drive to a smaller drive, even though the data on the smaller drive is less than the data on the new drive?
Thanks in advance!
