Note you get the extra space by deleting an existing partition or using "unpartitioned" space. You can do this in the Acronis program without needing another product. (Ensure if you delete another partition to create more space you've backed up any data in it first).

I've used Seagates DiscWizard (Acronis) and it works very well. I cloned a new hard drive and there was no issues. It's pretty fast also.
It will clone and backup to different sized partitions, easy, no need to re-size, change or do it later.
Definitely recommended.

Have used it for backups, tested it several times and never had a failure. Reports from other Acronis users are all good. It is highly recommended.
