Cloning bigger SSD onto smaller SSD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know how to clone/completely copy the contents of a bigger SSD (70gigs used out of 160gigs) onto a smaller SSD(110gigs free out of 120 gigs)?

I'm using DriveXML but it requires the clone target to be equal or bigger to the source in size.

In Windows Disk Management, try shrinking the volume of your 160 GB SSD to a number less than 110 GB. Then your cloning software should work.

If this doesn't work, I've used gparted to non-destructively resize partitions in the past.
