Image from small drive to large drive

  1. Hi all.

    I have an image of my parents computer's old 15GB IDE drive that I used Acronis to create. I've come across an 80GB drive and want to install it. If I use that image, is it going to utilize the extra space or is it only going to create the 15GB parition and another one with the extra space?

    I don't have much experiance with Acronis but is there a way to tell it to use all free space?

    Acronis will normally not create new partitions unless commanded to do so. The default is to use the free space it finds.

    Thanks for the quick reply raybay. I'll give it a go and see how everything works out.
