    Hey guys ... I am attempting to replace my HDD in my MBP with a new M500 from Crucial. I have partitioned the SSD so that I have "Macintosh SSD". Anyway, I get to this point and receive the following message:

    When I am Restoring and select Restore > Erase, I get a message saying:

    "Restore Failure
    Not enough space on /dev/disk13s2 to restore"

    What does this mean?? Is there something I'm not doing right? Your help is greatly appreciated!!

    Make sure your new partition is at least as large as the old one.

    Just a thought.

    If you're still having problems, use CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper and try to "clone" the old drive to the new partition...
