If you ghost the hdd it defrags it while cloning. I didnt know this happened until I had the same issue as the OP and cloned to a bigger drive , went to defrag and it was already done. I assume if you did a sector by sector clone it would not be the case though

Well, Being a sunday and day off I thought I would do a clone to a 160 gig drive. Nothing better to do. Im using clonezilla bootable disk and doing it now. Shouldnt take too long. But Then I have to expand the partitions.

I guess after a disk to disk clone I will get rid of the restore partition and grow the O/S partition and then add the restore partition back in.

I would love it if I didnt have to defrag it but I think its gonna need it. Also run a chkdisk before defragging.

Thanks for the comments!
