My new Dell Optiplex 960 desktop's hardware setup -
1. Single disk, 300GB SATA, two partition C & D, both partition size ~149GB, 2. C partition has used up 11GB, still have 138GB free space
3. D partition is empty, which mean 149GB free space
4. A SATA DVD-RW
What I have done -
1. After I have all the necessary XP OS software and Acronis True Image 10 installed in C, I have make an image file of the disk and keep the image file into another external USB drive,
My question here:
1. Is it possible that the image file can be restore into another new harddisk with smaller memory size, say 160GB? I try to test the image file by restore it into another new fresh 160GB harddisk, I got an error that the partition size is too small! But the image file size that I had build is just 11GB.
