I need a little guidance. Here is my situation. I have a failing hard drive so I need to restore an image to a new drive. System has one drive with a single partition Old drive: one partition 80 gigs New drive: 120 gigs I have an image on a usb Maxtor external drive, so here is where I am. I removed the failing drive and installed the new unpartitioned drive. I booted to an Acronis 8.0 emergency CD and navigated to my image on the external hard drive. I selected the image to restore from then selected the new 120 gig drive. It is currently restoring to the new drive. Here is my concern: 1. It never ask me if I wanted this drive to be active. For some reason I was expecting to be prompted for that. 2. I was not given an option to use all the drive or just restore to the original disk size and leave unallocated space since the drive sizes differ. Will this disk automatically be active since the original drive was? Can I expect it to partition and format to 120 gigs?
