  1. Will I lose the full capacity of the larger HD if I ghost from a smaller drive? I currntly have a 40GB and want to swap it with a 60GB after imaging it to the 60.

    don't ghost dwnlod the seagate disc wizard software
    and follow directions for full copy of c drive to d or whatever drive
    answer the questions as to removing the c drive and using the new as boot and so on and so on
    I have done this about 20 times and has not failed once
    there is some history about copying from ide to sata and or scsi
    but I have done this to and it worked
    PS this always works best from a boot cd,but I have done it while OS was up and running

    If by "ghosting" you really mean the Norton Ghost software then it's no problem. Ghost will resize partitions proportionally.
