I installed a new harddrive the other day because my old one bit it. Everything went fine and I plugged in the back up I used to restore, which was a longer process (8+ hours). I left the computer while it did that but windows apparently shut off and restarted for an update around 75% through. Now a large amount of the back up doesn't appear to of been transferred on, and on top of that space appears to just be missing. My old drive was 400 GB and this one is 500 GB. If I now went to restore, I wouldn't have any space left on the drive which obviously makes no sense since if I had enough space on a 400 gb drive I would have even more on a 500 GB one. But it says I only have 112 GB left. Despite this, I have searched through folders etc looking for where this mysterious amount of data went and I cannot find it anywhere. I checked to see if it was paritioned and it's not. Is there anyway to figure out what happened or can anyone tell me what the heck went on?
