I did a complete backup w/Acronis 9.0 of my 80 GB Hitachi HD. I backed it up to a 250 GB slave drive. I then swapped out the 80 GB drive and replaced it with a 120 GB jumpered as a master. Using the bootable CD, I then restored the backup on drive D: to the new drive C:. Everything worked perfectly, although the process took over 6 hours. The backup file was 31 GB. All is well and I am not complaining BUT when I look at my System Properties, Device Manager, Disk Drives, it shows the correct drive sizes - but when I do a My Computer and right click on properties, it shows the drive size as only 80 GB. Knowing it is a 120 gig drive, what do I need to do to regain the other 40 gig? Do I have to get something like Partition It!? It seems the restore function of Acronis did the partition and left the full size of the new HD alone. I may have answered my own question but would appreciate some expertise to either confirm my conclusion or set me strait. Thanks.
