Restoring a Norton Ghost image to a differently sized harddrive
Posted on 2009-02-23
I am using Norton Ghost 14.0 by Symantec.
I have performed a complete image backup of a 120GB hard drive (SATA 1.5 Gbps, 5400 rpm, 8 MB buffer). The used spaced on the hard drive is currently 59GB. The image file created, from the used space, is 43GB (with compression).
Question. Do I have to restore the "ghosted" image to an identically sized hard drive (120GB) or can can I restore it to a hard drive of a different size (160GB, 80GB, etc.)? Would like to know both cases of a larger hard drive (160GB) and a smaller hard drive (80GB)?
