Im having troubles with SBS 2008's backup utility. I have found out that the Windows imaging backup will not work if the hard drive is smaller then the partition you are trying to backup.

For example, if there is a partition size that is 1.9tb you would need a backup drive greater then 1.9tb to back up this partition, no matter how much data is on the partition.

The only way you can get this backup to work is to resize the partition to something that your backup drive can handle.

Does anyone know any other way or a workaround for this problem?
