Logical disk partition size less than volume size

  FreeCell 21:23 29 Jul 2009

Just copied my hard disk onto a larger one and having trouble getting the new disk to show the correct partition sizes.

Using XP.

Copied old disk using Paragon Disk Manger 8.5 to a new hard disk. Original was a 40 GB disk in two equal size partitions. Copied to a larger "120GB" disk and resized partitions proportionally to original.

Disk Management (in Computer Management utility)now shows the System Drive (C:) as being of the correct new size 55.90GB, i.e partition and volume are the same, but the Logical Drive (D:) is still showing in the top display as partition size 18.63 GB though in the lower section of Disk Management the volume size is shown as 55.89 GB.

How do I get the logical D: drive to be the increased size I desired in copying it to the new disk?

Fixed it I think. Used Diskpart Extend Filesystem command.
