Recently I did a System Image Recovery from an image created from a 320 GB HD. This old hard drive has problems. Buy a 1 TB new drive and did an Image Recovery on to the new drive. When I check directory of the new drive, W 7 only shows there is only 320 GB . How can I get the remaining capacity recognized?

This is normal. You need to extend the partition to the right using Disk Management. Right click the partition in Disk Management and select Extend.

 

Edit: Fixed link.

Extended is grey out when C drive is click, but manage to name new volume of unallocated partition. Thanks

If you want to extend C: to full capacity you can delete the partition you created in unallocated space then use Partition Wizard to extend the partition. You can also use the resize option.

 

All steps are virtual and will not start until the Apply button is clicked.
