View Full Version : Acronis - Can cloned drive fill all space

Maybe one of the Acronis pros can tell me what I'm missing.

e.g. When I clone a 100 gig HD to a 250 gig HD it creates a 100 gig partition on the new drive. Obviously, it's not brain surgery to us a PM and increase the size, but it's an extra step I would prefer to avoid. Maybe, I'm remembering Ghost, but I don't see the option to use all available space. Is there one (Oh, I use the WS Echo version).

Thanks for any help.

I don't use the echo version but in mine there are different options as to "Manual" or "Automatic" settings and there you can set the partition size. Failing that, try using Easeus Partition Manager to resize it. It's cake!
