Cloned 40 gb hard drive to a 160 gb for toshiba A15-S157 model

\015 When I put the drive in the laptop now is says disk read error. is there something that I need to do to get it to read from the new hard drive. I just did a ghost program disk to disk. my old hard drive is still working. I did not want to recover and reload data because there is a lot of software that was a one time install for photography and Itunes is on it and did not want to go throught the hassel of resetting 4 ipods back up. if there is any info that you can give please let me know. Thanks for your assistance\015

Answers :

I'm guessing that your question is why does my new 160G hard drive only show up as a 40G. When you use Norton Ghost to make an image of your hard drive, there were several questions it asked. One was whether you wanted to make an image of the whole partition. When this is selected Ghost acts like a camera and takes a picture of your old drive, partitions and all. When you put this image on a new drive it puts on exactly that a picture of your old (40G) drive. I have never been successful a trying to expand an image. As long as the old drive is still good you could start the process over and make an image of just your data, then format the 160G drive, reinstall Windows and place the data image on the new drive. You will have to reinstall the applications.
