I see that some people in the community have had problems cloning to a smaller ssd drive.
I wanted input on the best practices.
Source Drive: 1TB drive with currently 5 partitions:
- OS partition with 700GB free out of 916.78GB
- 500 MB EFT partition
- 595 MB recovery partition
- 12.46 GB recovery partition
- 1.08 GB recovery partition
Destination drive I have ordered BLUE 3D NAND 500GB
Is the Acronis software smart enough to handle cloning to a smaller drive?
If not, is there something else recommended?
Should I split the OS partition to make the OS smaller than 500GB and is there someway to pick which partitions get cloned?
Should I return the 500gb drive and buy the 1TB drive to save myself pain?
Thanks in advance
