Can I restore an IMG to a smaller USB flash drive?

Post by pstein »

Assume I backup a bootable USB flash drive with a size of 32GB and used by 10% in "Volume Mode" into an *.img file.

Later I got another, smaller USB flash drive with a capacity of only 8 GB.

Can I restore the previously created *.img to this smaller USB flash drive (including the boot sectors)?
Actually the necessary used space of (only) ~ 3GB should fit on the new USB flash drive as well.

Is this working?
