Clonning smaller to bigger NTFS partition

Post by betenoire » Fri Jan 29, 2010 12:26 pm

Hi
How can I succesfully clone NTFS/Windows XP partition from 4 GB to 5 GB? Will the spare place be lost/recoverable??

Check the Partimage manual pages. You can make an image of a 4 GB partition and restore it to a larger one like 5 GB. The extra 1 GB will not be "lost" but available to WinXP. However, that does seem like a small partition for a WinXP install.
