" Your C: drive probably didn't need to be shrunk because most Clone programs can copy a larger drive to a smaller one as long as the larger drive doesn't exceed the smaller one."
What does this mean?

Right? If "larger" "exceeds" "smaller" then how can it be called "larger"?

exceed: to be greater than

large: exceeding most other things of like kind especially in quantity or size

small: comparatively little size​

Okay, now my brain hurts. Need more coffee.

;)

it should have read that As Long as the Used Space on the Larger drive doesn't exceed the Free Space of the smaller drive. it should clone, but not all Free Clone programs do this (ie) if the Used Space on the large 1TB HDD is 300 GB you can clone it to a 500 GB SSD.
