Hope to sort this out soon...,

thanks for the help, looking forward to your reply.


That is the same with most (at least free) imaging programs. But it should be simple to shrink your 500GB partition to less than 250GB since you have only 160GB of data (unless that is the compressed number).

For that job you need the bootable CD of Partition Wizard (see on the left side of the webpage) because Disk Management won't do it.

And here is a tutorial in case you decide to use free Macrium - it is the best. Imaging with free Macrium
