Imaging a smaller drive
Posted on 2014-04-26
Is it possible to apply a larger drive image to a smaller drive? The larger drive is one partition 300 gigabytes, of which only 40 gigabytes have been used. I only need the image of the 40 used gigabytes. The smaller drive is 200 gigabytes. I tried using Ghost version 11.5 but I get the following error, ""Bad NTFS Clustersize Detected (413)". I ran "Chkdsk", and still get this error. Symantec's support has not figured this out either. They have had me try adding different switches to the ghost32.exe but it has not worked. The only software that allowed me to image the drive was "Drive Snapshot". I tried applying the image to the smaller drive but got error because of the drive size. Thanks for your help.
