Resize bare metal backup image upon restore?

Veeam Logoby Justin » Wed Apr 22, 2015 7:33 pm

I took this tool's release as an opportunity to upgrade one of my computers from a spinning disk to an SSD. The spinning disk is 500GB, where the SSD is 256GB. When I attempted to restore the backup I created to the SSD, I was unable to. There is only about 80GB of data on my spinning disk, a very basic OS. Is there a way to shrink the image down and allow me to force a restore to the SSD or is this just an impossible task?

In the mean time I have booted back to my spinning disk and am attempting to shrink the partition enough to get it on the SSD.

Currently it is not possible, but we are looking into addressing this in one of the next updates. Thanks for your feedback!
