I was wondering if there is a recommended or required 'extra' free space on a drive before an image can be deployed? i.e. say the image is 49gigs and HDD is 50gig (after formatting), would that work?

Why I ask is that I was tried to deploy a 120gig image to a 240gig (after formatting) and it failed saying that there wasn't enough space on HDD.
