Hi all, Seems like a few other people have had the same sort of issue that I have had but I still cant seem to fix the problem. I used Acronis TI 11 to clone my old 40GB notebook drive that had 3 factory partitions (one for media direct, one being a restore partition, and lastly the main partition with windows on it). I got a new 320GB notebook HDD and it was hooked up via USB and windows XP rebooted and proceeded to clone the disk using the auto feature, it showed all three partitions being equally expanded which was not ideal but made sense. The clonedisk finished, I rebooted, then turned it off and proceeded to swap drives ONLY running the new 320GB drive. It reboot and then I got a windows bluescreen of death and that was that. I took the drive to another computer and all that was there was a ~40GB partition. There is no "unallocated" space or anything -- just says that the 320GB drive is 40GB. Me being an idiot, I tried another 160GB drive and the exact same thing happened. I am now stuck with two dead drives -- how do I bring them back to life? My bigger thought is, what is the point of putting in a clone feature that kills hard drives?
