The image file is too large for selected usb device

Post by Josef » Fri Aug 11, 2017 7:24 pm

Hello!

I have a big problem. I have created an image using Usb Image Tool from a 16gb stick. Now I wanted to restore the image to a new stick, also 16gb, and get the following error message: The image file is too large for selected usb device

Why? What can I do? I need to restore the image, VERY WELL, I do not have the original stick anymore. I've trusted the tool. :(

You can delete the unused partition. As long as your used partition is completely within the size and sector area of the new device, it will get copied completely with all data.

You can reformat but still get an error message on Restore or in general when accessing the device?
