I have taken a full backup of my old HD which was 160GB using norton Ghost v12. I have replaced this HD and installed a brand new 1tb hard drive into the system and did a system restore from my old C: which was 160GB. It fully restored all my programs and files, but the 1tb hard drive is reading as 160gb when I go into My computer then right click and view properties. I went to the BIOS and its reading as 1tb.
Any ideas as to how I can have the computer read this to be 1tb? I looked for drivers but researched and found that windows should have automatically detected system drives... wierd huh?? Hope someone out there has got an answer cus its bugging me. I surely dont want to start loading all my programs and files separately into this new 1tb HD.
Is there anything that I can do now that I have restored my 160GB to my 1tb HD, so that My computer detects a 1tb HD when I go into my computer and properties? I tried many things and spent hours and hours but cant get a solution to this.
Many thanks everyone for helping me with a step by step solution.
