Restore to a smaller disk


#1

So I have a 500gb disk backup img that has only 64gb used. I would like to restore it on a 115gb SSD. Thoughts?

sorry for necroing this 2 month old post

The answer, at least for me, is no.
I have urbackup server 2.2.11 and the recovery disk 2.1.1 (x64).
Under the recovery disk i did the usual, put username, password, select computer, select backup and select he drive to restore to. After a few seccond it shows that the target drive is smaller than the image.
In my case the computer have a seagate 2tb i dont know the model. I tried to recover it to a toshiba 2tb and it shows that is smaller (like for 0.06gb)…
I hope the devs add the feature to recover to smaller drives from bigger VHD if possible
