Windows 7: Help with a restore

Help with a restore


I'm win 7 64bit. My 120gb SSD drive died a couple weeks ago and I replaced it with a bigger 180gb SSD drive.

I do a system image backup to a secondary drive. When I put my new SSD drive in and booted from my win 7 media I was able to restore the image it found on my D drive from 12/26, so only 2 weeks of data loss. I checked format in the restore and off it went formatting my new drive and restoring the image to it.

The restore completed and all seemed well with the world again ... Then i realized that it sees my new 180gb SSD (C drive), as a 120gb SSD (like my old one was)...ugg, can anyone help me fix this so it sees my new drive as full capacity?
