Default Clone 320gb HD to 128gb SSD drive?

I have a Crucial 128GB SSD on the way that I'd like to make my C drive on my Sager NP8760. I been reading a lot on the interwebz and finding some conflicting info. What has been coming up is that the free software like clonezilla cannot clone the data from a larger drive to a smaller drive. Other forums had info on using Windows Disk Manager and Windows imager to backup and restore a disk image.

So, for all you tech mavens out there, If you had a NP8760 with 2 x 320GB hardrives, (non RAID and both with less than 80 gig used) a 128GB SSD, a powered USB to SATA adapter cable, and a external 2.5" HD enclosure, how would you go about cloning the current C drive to the SSD?
