I have a 1TB hard drive that is the system drive on an old machine. I want to free up that drive.

I have a 80Gb hard drive that is not being used.

I want to clone the 1TB to 80GB.  Using clonezilla, it says the 80 is too small (there's only 30GB on the 1TB drive, but it's a 1TB partition.

Is the process to use gparted to resize the partition to under 80GB then clonezilla to clone the drive (it's a bootable win xp system disk).

is there a 1 step (free?) app that will do both parts?
