    Ok, so if we are creating a clone of existing 256GB ssd onto a 350GB hard drive, we can just do that without any size changes and leave 94GB of unallocated space? Then when we want to recover, the clone on the hard drive can be cloned back to the SSD? Just want to be sure there are no tricks in getting sizes correct.
    I just now saw this. Almost all cloning programs can deal with differing sizes amongst sources and targets -- some programs will make the adjustments easier to do, some other programs will not make the adjustments easier to do. I'm still learning how to navigate MR7 when such differences have to be resolved.

    Sorry for delay. Didn't see your follow-up question until now, @agent99. Yes, you could do that, no problem.
