Specs: Windows XP
I was using an old hard drive with 30g. I just upgraded a little to 40g. I installed and copied new one, but has the old hard drive space(30g). How can I get the extra space it's supposed to have? Thx.

I think you may have missed an option when you copied the old drive to the new one. Something like expand to fit new drive size or use all the new drive. I can't remember the exact terms.

Hope this helps

You're sure the 30 gig figure you're seeing is the total space on the drive and not the free space?

What software did you use to copy the drive?
