Possible to Restore a Server backup to a Smaller Drive?

Does anyone know of a way to restore a server backup to a smaller drive than it was originally created on?

.

I had a 1.5TB drive in my server and just tried to replace it with a 1Tb drive and run server restore. The restore fails saying that the new drive is less than the old drive. I'm assuming that's because it's an image of the original drive. I only have 100GB in the whole system though and wonder if anyone knows a way to bypass this error.

 

Thanks,

If you are able to get a server restore to work, period, I'd be interested in hearing about it. I've tried a couple of times with no success. Client restores have been a breeze, however.

I actually ran into this when I tried virtualizing WHS in 2008R2. I used the trial version of easeus todo server. Worked for me.
