Copied image.

We have copied a system image on to a new larger hard drive, is it possible to get the new drive size to be recognized rather than the old smaller size.
Or is it best to leave well alone please.
Windows 7 64bit

Right click Computer (My Computer) and select Manage/Disc Management.


or Try 'Partition Wizard'


EASAUS Partition Manager

or Seagate DiscWizard (if any one of your HDDs is a Seagate)

or a Western Digital utility (if any of your HDDs is WD)

or Acronis True Image (trial then pay)

Going to leave things as they are as it is working ok at the moment. We have the Windows 7 disc if needed but putting the image on to the new disc saved installing printers etc. Thank you anyway.
