  • Bare metal restore to a smaller partition

    We have Windows 2003 SP2 server running Exchange.
    We backup the server including MIS everyday ( Full + incremental) using Backup Exec.
    If we resize the partition (c partition) to be smaller than before on the same server and then do a bare metal restore to now the smaller partition (c partition)using the backup, will it work?

    THANKS.

    Yes. As long as your new partition is big enough to accomodate the data.

    The backup does not check partition sizes.

      Thanks. That's what I was hoping to hear.
