    I just completed restoring an image of my primary boot 60Gb HD to a new 80Gb HD. The process worked great and my system booted right up using the new drive. However, when I check the properties of the new drive it shows only 60Gb. Any ideas on how to recover the other 20Gb? Thanks...

    Use the manage the secure zone wizard,first to create a secure zone in the unallocated space, then to remove the zone. In the removal process you will be able to assign the freed space to your partition/s.
    Ther whole operation will only take a few minutes.

    Right-click My Computer. Then choose Manage\Storage\Disk Management.

    You should see your missing 20GB as Unallocated Space.

    To recover this space do the following:

    Open ATI and create a secure zone of mininmal size in the unallocated space.
    Move the slider to the left as shown in this screenshot:

    Then click on manage secure zone and delete the zone. You will now be given the option to add the freed up space to your original partition.
