Image much larger than source partition

Hi forum,

I'm trying to backup a data partition with 406GB of data on it to an external HDD with 500GB.

However, the process stops at about 80% with an "not enough space on target" error (or similar wording).

I have compression set to high and use the smart sector mode.

So how can that image be larger than the source data?
