Don't use Partition Magic to resize partitions.
Use Windows Disk Management or Partition Wizard.
Windows Disk Management works well within its capabilities, but may not let you shrink as much as you would like---in which case use Partition Wizard.
I'm not sure Macrium will let you restore a 600 GB partition to a 500 GB drive. You may have to shrink regardless of the app you intend to use.
