Destination disk too small?

Post by jreality » Thu Oct 15, 2009 6:06 pm

I'm trying to back up a drive that is 596 gigs in size to a 465 gig hard drive. The 596 gig hard drive has 280 gigs free, therefore it is holding a LOT less data than 465 gigs. There is NO WAY the destination disk is too small. The data on the source drive will certainly fit on the destination drive just fine.

Again, I am not understanding why the destination disk is considered "too small" by the program. In fact, I am able to do a clone using Acronis just fine, but I don't really like having to use Acronis. Why can't I do this backup with R-Drive?


EDIT: I tried again, after exiting the dialog that appears when selecting "disk to disk copy" and it appears not to be giving me the error message and allowing the copy to take place. Any ideas why the error happened previously?

Maybe, you didn't select Backup useful information only ?
