    I Copied My 20 Gb Drive To My New 8ogb Hard Drive With A Program

    That Copies The Drive Exactly. Is There A Way To Fix The Copy So It Can Have More Than 20gb. If I Need To Start From The Beg. What Do I Do?

    Keep In Mind - I'm Making The 80gb My New Master Drive And 20gb Will Be The Slave Drive

    ..thanks

    Are you sure there wasn't an option early in the copy that allowed you to change the size of the destination partition?

    I Don't Remember The Name, But The Program Took Over 6 Hours To Do The Copying. It Did A Simple Sector By Sector Copy.

    I'd suggest you visit the hard drive manufacturer's website and download the free image utility, no way it takes anything close to that! If you don't remember the name, why don't you look on the computer? You obviously have the program, right?

    It sounds like it copied the hard drive exactly, so the size is the same.

    A few options are to use a program that will now let you resize the current partition or a different imaging program that will let you copy from one drive to another and resize in the process.
