I have a 10 GB partition that is nowhere near full, less than 5 GB of data

an image of just the files from one drive to another?  For example, an
intelligent DD that won't copy unused sectors, or will create an archive of
just the files?

dd won't do that but partimage is probably the "intelligent dd" you are looking for.

But partimage will no restore to a smaller artition
