    Chris, during the restore process (1st window, I believe), there's an option at the bottom of the screen called "Restored partition properties." In this option you can set the size of the restored partition to the minimum required (original size) or up to the available size of the TARGET disk (which is what I think you want).

    If you have already restored the image to a newer larger drive, you can go into Disk Management and right click on the volume you restored and click Extend Volume. Then you can resize it up to the available free space and create a new image from there that is the full HDD size. Unless I misunderstood what was asked, then disregard.
