I ran into that when my 120GB SSD died, used a fresh install on a hard drive for a month and wanted to drop the 90GB system image onto my 240GB SSD. Still haven't found a workaround for that.
I believe you can do that with Acronis True Image. I used the free version from Western Digital to clone a laptop drive over to a larger laptop drive.
