Hello,

I did the recovery test in two ways.
And I was curious.

Let me explain with an example.

first,
When recovering from physical machine A to physical machine B.
A device's usage capacity is 30GB, and the actual maximum disk capacity is 100GB.
And the actual maximum disk capacity of device B is 80GB.
In this case, because the maximum capacity of device B is smaller than that of device A, recovery using the recovery image was not possible.

second,
When recovering from physical machine A to virtual machine C.
As expected, the usage capacity of device A is 30GB, and the actual maximum disk capacity is 100GB.
And the maximum disk capacity of the C virtual machine is set to 80GB.
After that, the recovery was performed and the recovery was successful.

The only difference between B and C equipment is that of real physical equipment and virtual equipment.
However, C succeeded in recovery even though the maximum capacity was less than A, and B failed.

Are there any recovery conditions I don't know?
What difference is causing this effect?

Thank you.

Hello Lemoning!

1) When you restore with Bootable media select volumes instead of disks, then you can resize the volumes of the 100Gb backed up disk so it fits on the 80Gb one. I recently done this exact scenario (even with similar sizes).

2) My guess is if the virtual disk is dynamically growing, a 80Gb virtual disk doesn't take 80Gb "real" disk space, so it can accept data from a bigger disk because only the actual data will increase its size.

Hello Lemoning,

thank you for posting on Acronis forums!

Please clarify whether the restoration from the first situation is described in the neighbor thread?

Hello Peter,

Thanks for answering my question.

Your answers have been helpful to some extent.
Have you ever seen a case in which the property button is not activated in item 1?
I know there is a property button in general.
However, when I try to recover from the device, the properties button is not visible.

Thank you.

Hello Maria.

Thanks for your interest in my question.
It's a different piece of equipment than its question.

As in the reply to Peter, the peculiarity of this is that the properties button is not visible.

Thank you.

Hello Lemoning!

I may have, but I never recorded the exact circumstances when it happened. As I rarelly need to use Bootable media most of the issues I face with it are actually my own user errors.
Can you post pictures of the case where the button isn't activated/visible?
