Yes we have been discussing that - unfortunately, PW is an app that reads the same as windows.

Gparted gets it's info in a different way - that's why it was suggested.

If he had used Acronis to clone a 500 to a terabyte Acronis would have extended the partition to fit the new drive.

Automatically ?

Or do you have to tell Acronis to resize proportionately ?

If Acronis resizes - does it also expand the 100mb partition - or does it have the capability to leave that as it is during proportionate resize ?

I will admit that I'm not very familiar with Partition Wizard, yet it seems to me that the screenshot taken of it indicates that the lost space is unallocated. It would seem that the solution is to resize C: so that it includes that unallocated space.

I have used Acronis to clone a larger drive to a smaller one. It will do that if the used portion of the larger drive is the same or smaller than the new drive. It has never changed the partition size on me. It is the same program Intel offers to clone a HD to SSD.

I like Parted Magic. It is a good tool to have. It is about 15 programs in one. The partition manager is gparted. I have used it several times and it will manipulate partitions very well. It's just extremely slow.

Yes, parted magic can be useful - I have an older - smaller, and terrific gparted.

Seekermeister- Partition Wizard is not showing any unallocated space.

It agrees with Disk Management List View. List view is the top bit in his screenie - where the partitions are listed.

It does not agree with Disk Management Disk View. That is the bottom bit in his screenie - the Disk Map , if you like.

That is exactly what I read. Somehow Disk Management is showing 2 different things in the seperate views. What is needed is a program such as gparted to see what it reads. Somehow, there is an error in disk management. Try running diskpart and see what it reads. Also, what does explorer say is the size of C ?
