    I am using TI WS 9.1 latest build and was wondering if there was a way to increase the partition size during the recovery if the new disk is larger than the old one. It seems that if I take a 40GB image and apply it to an 80GB hard drive, I only have a 40GB partition on the new drive after the restore. I would like to see a feature to allow this to be adjusted.

    Thanks

    There's an option to restore the partition, and not the drive.
    If you choose that, there should be an option to choose the size of the restore partition.

    Hello dcol,

    When restoring to a new drive by partition restore, as MerlinAZ advised, you should also select MBR and Track 0. But within a partition restore, necessary for resizing, you can't select the partition and the MBR on the same pass (a safety precaution). Therefore, after selecting C: and setting it's new size and other parameters, reply, when asked by the Wizard, that you want to restore another partition. You will be carried back to the previous selection screen where you will now be able to tick the MBR too.
