Recovery from smaller hard drive to bigger hard drive
I have a backup of a 125gb windows installation.
I want to recover that backup to a 256gb empty hard drive, but the recovred system fills only 125gb of space.
If i look at the partitions i see that the windows recovery parition is aligned after the windows parition, maybe thats the problem?
To fix this i need to boot into ubuntu and move the recovery partition and resize the windows partition.
Is there a different solution?
Stefan, welcome to these User Forums.
You can obviously use a Linux program such as Gparted to make the changed needed, or alternatively I would use the free MiniTool Partition Wizard to move the Recovery partition to the end of the free space then expand the other partitions as needed.
I have use MiniTool Partition Wizard on several occasions when recovering to a larger disk. It is very easy to do.
I tested my scenario with Acronis 2014 and it with that it fills the full disk space (256gb), so unallocated disk space.
Was this feature removed in Acronis 2017?
Stefan, I am not aware of this being removed in ATI 2017 or other versions? I would suggest submitting Feedback to Acronis using the tool provided for this in the GUI so that they can also investigate. Provide them with a link to this forum topic.
