    Image restoration question using Reflect

    A couple of questions about restoring images with Macrium Reflect.

    I decided to reconfigure my system. This is what my system looked like: C: drive = 250gb SSD, D: drive 250gb spinner, G70gb) & S200gb) drives on a 270gb spinner.
    This is what I wanted it to look like: c: drive 250gb SSD, D333gb) G10gb) S100gb) drives on a 500gb SSD.

    What I did:

    Created image backups of D:, G:, and S:

    R&R the drives

    Restored D:, Then resized the D: partition to 333gb with Aomei Partition wizard and created the 2 remaining partitions.

    When I went to restore G:, it would only allow me to overwrite the entire 500gb SSD. I said no, maybe I shouldn't create the empty partitions, so I removed them and tried it again. It again only wanted to overwrite the entire disk.

    My question is What should of I done to restore the images to the sizes that I wanted them to be ?

    All suggestions will be appreciated.

    There should be a sub-menu that allows you to specify the target partition and the size of said target partition. I'll listen in and learn alongside you, I need to relearn where that sub-menu is. I'm using MR7, however. I think MR6 & MR7 have that same sub-menu.
