I'm running Lion and trying to restore a Snow Leopard system archived in a DMG file.
The restore destination is an external Firewire disk (160GB) and the original system was installed in a 250GB disk. The compressed DMG has 90GB, and uncompressed it takes 120GB.
Disk utility tells me that there's not enough space to restore. But I'm quite positive I did this about 4 years ago...
In this question Copying Time Machine backup... answers, folks mention Carbon Copy Cloner and rsync command. Would any of these help me? Or is there some DiskUtility option I'm missing?
Although I posted a solution, I'm still interested in how to achieve this using DiskUtility.
