Is there a cloning software that clones an OS onto a partition?

I mean, I've tried a lot of software but the best they can do is to clone an OS onto an entire disk instead of a single partition.

I'm trying specifically to clone a Windows 10 OS from my 2TB HDD onto a 70GB partition from a 240GB SSD but as I said no software I have tried so far seems to do it.

Do you know of one that'll do it?

PS: The ones I've tried: Acronis, Easeus, Paragon, Aomei.

Is used space in Windows 10 OS partition smaller than 70GB?
If it is not, then you can't clone.
Reduce used space first by deleting user files and uninstalling software.
After that you can use Minitool partition wizard free to copy partition from one drive to another.

Just use any of those apps to clone it to the whole drive, and then use Windows Disk Maintenance to reduce the partition size to 70 gigs. Create a new partition to fill the remainder.
