Having problems with your Dell XPS M1210 Notebook ?

WD 500 GB resized by Norton Ghost Restore to 120 GB and can not get it to original size.

\015 I recently purchased a WD 500 GB eSATA HD to replace my Samsung 120 GB HD on my Dell XPS M1210. I used Norton Ghost to image my original disk and restore to the new 500 GB disk. After the restore, the new 500 GB disk only shows 120 GB available and will not resize to its original size. Tried reformatting, repartitioning etc. I appreciate any and all help/support in this regards. Thanks, \015\012Fadeaway\015

Answers :

What you are backing up with Ghost is a mirror image of your original hard drive. You may have repartitioned the new drive for 500 gig but you’re restoring your original partition size of 120 with Ghost. That’s why they call it call it “Ghost”, it’s a ghost image of your drive. If you want to use the full capacity of the 500 gig drive you have 2 options:
\015\0121) Re-install you operating system software from scratch and install docs, pics, etc..
\015\0122) Create a second partition (500 gig minus 120 gig) and assign it a logical drive letter.

You should partition your new drive first to say 160Gb (you lose a bit after formatting) for 1st partition and the remaining capacity for the 2nd partition. Because your Ghost image is 120Gb it can only restore to a partition of 120Gb, that is why it shows 120Gb on a 500Gb on a single partition.
\015\012You may be able to fix this problem without starting again by using Disk Manager (from Control Panel - Admoinistrative Tools) to create a 2nd partition on the hard drive and format this partition.
