Recently, my SSD started failing. That's a usual fact with SSD and I was prepared for it, or I thought I was. I got a replacement Intel SSD from amazon which was advertised as 240GB rather than 256GB. I originally thought that this was due to formatting (GiB vs GB) but it turns out it is actually smaller.
I put in the Macbook Pro, launched Internet Recovery (boot with cmd-R) and selected "restore from time machine". Unfortunately, the system complained that my destination drive didn't have enough space.
