Crush size of windows image!

So far these tutorials have not worked.
It may be that the Windows backup image may be too big for the SSD.
Now I am having to Re-image an old image back to my HDD. Then I will Crush that down to an 80Gb image. Then it might fit!

It seems I was correct In my assumption. The Backup Image had to be smaller than the one it was being applied to!
Thanks everyone.

Turns out you can use Macrium Reflect to apply the image created by MR without having to optimize the SSD.
