Before I carry out an XP re-install, I want to clone my C:\ (160 GB) partition to a smaller partition (~80 GB) so should the worst happen I can revert back to the current install.
There's only ~50 GB of data on the C:\ partition, so there's plenty of space within the 'backup partition'.
I've cloned HDDs several times in the past to go from the 60 GB HDD my PC came with several times until the current setup, but they've always been getting larger.
When I try to clone to a smaller partition I get error messages from Ghost 9. Is it possible to do this? I've defraged the source partition as best as I can using Defraggler.
Any ideas anyone? I don't want to spend the cash for another backup HDD of min 160 GB... I just want a quick solution so I can get a clean install of XP going and hopefully get a useable PC again!
Cheers for any help received,
