Cloning XP to a smaller Hard Drive

  gartoy 10:27 06 Feb 2011

Does anyone know of some freeware that will allow me do this?

Its a 250GB SATA Western Digital which is only using 16GB total space including XP, I want to clone the OS onto a formatted 80GB SATA Western Digital.

If the data is larger than the drive it is not possible. However did you do a search for what you want? click here

Thanks for your response johndrew. Yes it appears that the destination must be lager, thats why I posted, however to get round this I'm going to resize the partition containing the OS to about 30GB, thus making the destination drive bigger. Can't think of any other way of doing it.
