Increase Partition Sizes when Restoring From True Image Backup
About four years ago I bought a Western Digital 4 TB My Book external drive to backup my computer. It came with Acronis True Image WD edition software. I believe it is the 2016 version as the chm files display ATI OEM 2016 in the title when opened.
The drive in my computer is a San Disk SSD 128 GB (SDSSDP-128G-G25). I am getting low on space so I want to replace the drive with a new drive that is a larger SSD, the HP SSD S750 512GB.
Attached is a screen capture of my partitions. All I want to do is restore from an Acronis True Image backup to my new drive and make the two middle partitions larger. (C: 77.97 GB NTFS and the 35.38 GB partition which runs Linux as this is a dual boot system.) This seems pretty simple and straight forward but I can't seem to do it.
My understanding is that with True Image software I should be able to recover to a new drive and it will automatically resize the partitions to the larger drive or give me the choice of specifying the size of each partition. Is that correct? But it looks like I can't seem to do that with the software I have.
The Recovery Wizard allows me to specify a partition size in Specify Recovery Settings but it does not allow a size larger than the existing size the backup has.
Can you tell what I need to do to enlarge the two middle partitions? Thank you.
