Deja Dup running out of space


I'm trying to restore my computer using a Ubuntu cd with a backup I made with Deja Dup to an external HDD.

At first I tried using the default settings of restoring the files to their original location and DD told me the drive was out of space immediately. After a bit I realized this was probably because I had formatted and renamed the internal HDD

So then I told DD to restore the files to the newly named drive and everything went fine until it hit about 70% and it told me it ran out of space again. The external drive only has about 70 gbs worth of data on it and the internal HDD I'm trying to restore it to is 750 so there's no way it's actually running out of space.

What am I doing wrong?

Did you checked the space on internal HDD with command ? e.g
Code:
df -hT

I'm not sure what you mean. The HDD has plenty of space, it's 750 gbs. The size of the backup is only 60ish.

I know internal HDD capacity is 750GB. But, You formatted it. So it is good to make sure that after formatting, whether it is showing correct amount of space or not.I am trying to say check the disk capacity with disk utility or GNU/Linux command
Code:
df -hT
The command should shows the total disk space and available space.
