restore image to smaller drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to figure out how I can restore a 500GB drive image to a 250GB drive where I'm not even using 25% of the 500GB.  

    Is there a way to restore to a smaller hdd instead of having to restore to an equal or bigger?

  • No. Because of the way backups are stored in the home computer backup database, you can only restore a drive image to a partition that is at least as large as the one that was originally backed up.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
