    My harddrive crashed on my Toshiba laptop. I have restored my image to the new drive that said it was 80gig when I started and now it says it is only 40 again. (my old one was 40gig)
    Also won't let me sign into my XP account.

    Any ideas?

    Who is this "it"? If you can not login to XP, where did you see the 40 GB?
