i was unable to restore a partition holding only 3Gb to
a 20Gb partition, only because the original partition
was 30Gb. it would be nice if you could implement a
feature to make this possible.

    I have exactly the same problem to methisto1982, while I
    like using partimage. Thanks

    Partimage has this option. Select either gzip or bzip2 in
    the compression options instead of none. I've used this
    with a huge > 100GiB partition containing 4GiB of data to a
    very tiny partition already and it worked for me without a
    hitch.
