When you did the restore what did you use? What kind of partitions did you set? When you go into Disk managment is there any drives there that are not enabled? These are just some things off the top of my head.

Go to Administrative Tools/ Computer Management/Disk Management and your disk should be shown with the rest shown as free space.
You can resize your disk to fill the free space.
