True Image V9

  Pine Man 14:22 23 Feb 2006

I recently ditched Ghost for TI9 and thought I ought to test it out.

My OS (XP SP2) is on an 80GB drive, which I saved to a different drive as an image file and then attempted to restore it to a 120GB drive. I didn't trust it enough to restore it to the original drive!

It worked well and everything appeared to work perfectly apart from NIS 2006 which needed re-activating. XP transferred across seamlessly and DIDN,T need activating even though it was on a different drive.

The reason for this thread is that even though I had restored the contents of an 80GB drive to a 120GB drive the 120GB drive showed up afterwards as an 80GB drive!

Has anybody else restored an image file to a larger, or smaller drive than it originated from and does anybody know how to get back my missing 40GB?
