It's always best to post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image so we can check it over and give you any pointers.

I may use Partition Wizard in the future, but given that the work has now already been done I'd still like to know if there's a way to check the integrity of outcome. I'm not worried so much about surface scan issues - I can see the status of that kind of thing using SMART data. I'm more interested in knowing if there's a way to validate the integrity of the files after the transfer to a new partition arrangement. I did a test by starting up applications that are "complex" - Photoshop, Sony Vegas, music server software - all of that stuff started up and ran as usual. There were no oddities when Win7 initialized. Is that enough to give me confidence that everything got remapped without issue?

Can't post any screen shots right now as I am not at the computer where the work was done.

There is no easy way to check the integrity of the system after a restore from an image. From what you have done it looks like things are OK.

And Greg is right. You went through an awful lot of trouble for a very simple operation.

Maybe, but seeing as how I had to clone the disk anyway as a safety backup before doing the work, it seemed easier to use a tool I already had on hand.

I also recommend Partition Wizard`s boot cd, it has always worked flawlessly for me, and it`s so easy to use
