Windows 7: Swapping HDD for SSD using System Image Creator

Swapping HDD for SSD using System Image Creator

Two weeks ago my laptop harddrive (Toshiba - 500GB) started to fail, so I created a system image and tried replacing the HDD with a SSD (OWC - 240GB) after getting an error I figured out I needed to use a HDD that was 500GB+ even though my system image was only a 115 GB file. So I got a Seagate 500GB drive and restored it with no problems. However, I'd still like to use the SSD so I partitioned the new C: drive down to 150GB and tried to create an system image of just the C: & System. But I'm still getting this error when I try to recover the system image to the SSD. Any thoughts? I'm following the exact steps that I used when I restored it to the Seagate HDD.


Thanks in advance!
