Moving from 2TB drive to 1TB SSD - how do I clone or do system image?

2TB existing drive and I want to use a new 1TB SSD.  So far all attempts fail because I can't clone or do a system image from a source disk bigger than the new one.  Is there a work around?

 

I have tried to "Shrink" the volume but Windows tells me it is not shrinkable.  Are there third party products that can do it?

 

Thanks,

 

Bob

http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html is good for partitions (shrinking)

 

http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx is often recommended for cloning.
