If there's not enough room, you will receive a warning that the disk is too small.

As an alternative you could use Acronis True Image.

The trial version will give you time enough to create a 'set' of discs that can be used to restore a system from.. If 700MB Cd's are used it will ask for multiple discs if required so make sure you have several available before you start.

The size of the recovery disc will depend on the size of the original hard drive and the amount of data on that drive,,
