cloning from larger drive to smaller drive

view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – I finally made the switch and I bought the Seagate 600. It has the Seagate software, but I'm running into an issue... My current configuration is a 1TB drive with a 120gig boot partition... when I run the clone drive, I can only clone the entire 1TB drive, it will not allow me to just clone the 120gig partition on the drive. Right now I made a backup and I'm restoring that backup to the new seagate.... will this work? Does anyone have a better idea or am I missing something completely... Thanks (Hardware)
