Deploying and image that is slightly larger than partition.

    I have two images that represent partition 1 and 2(C:\ and D:\) for my OS.
    They were captured from a Seagate 18 GB drive.

    I cannot deploy the second partition because many of the targets have
    sliiiightly smaller Seagate drives. The difference of a few sectors means
    that I get no image at all, even though the D:\ partition is mainly unused.

    Ghost has no problem dynamically sizing the second volume to consume the
    free space.

    Questions:
    Is there any way to mount and modify the image on the ADS machine to account
    for this slight change?
    Why does ADS not dynamically allocate the remaining space on a partition?
    I tried modifying the numberclusters and partition length in the
    imagevariables table, but that didn't help.
    Do I need to rebuild the drives on the Gold image to use dynamic volumes?

    What is the best solution from your exprience?

    Thanks.
