Windows 7: cloned hdd with easus back up, lost all drive space

23 Mar 2012   #1

windows 7 ultimate x64
cloned hdd with easus back up, lost all drive space

I had my system setup as dual boot (with separate drives) while making a change over from win7 home premium to widows 7 ultimate. After i got everything set up the way i wanted it, in win 7 ultimate, I figured I would delete the home premium and clone the drive with easus utility. this way i could have just one drive and one OS.
When I cloned the drive with my new OS on it, to my 600 GB hdd that I had just formatted but not partitioned. I lost all the space on the 600GB empty drive. the drive property says that it is a 700 MB drive now and that it's 3/4 full but when i click on that drive it says this folder is empty. also the OS is running on a 160GB drive and will not start windows unless the 600 GB drive is present. with the 600GB drive by it self will not boot either.
What Did I do wrong? How can i get the OS ultimate to run on its own drive again?
How do i get back the space on my 600GB drive. And how can i move my New OS to the Main C: drive?

any input would help shed some light, I can usually figure these types of things out but there seems to be something i am not grasping here. thanks for listening.
