Can you clone source to smaller destination, provided the data on source does not exceed the capacity of the destination?

i.e source 500GB (100GB Used)

Destination 160GB


thanks

Andy

That would depend on how the data is distributed on the drive, as I presume the Bandura will clone sector-by-sector. If the data is not fragmented then I would imagine it would work.

I don't have a Bandura but have an insight, and tat is how it works on that :-)

Andy,

Bandura can copy only occupied sectors from source to target, however, it will not re-size partitions on the fly.

In your example it will copy only data (100 GB), however, you would need to use a target drive which is at least as big as the partition on the source drive.
