    Hi all,

    I wanted to clone my old drive onto a larger drive. I used dd to copy the
    entire disk to the new drive, then I used qtparted to resize the partition.
    However, when I boot into vista, the size of the drive reported is different
    than the size of the partition. The drive space shows only the capacity of
    the old disk while the partition size shows the size of the new larger drive.

    Here's a screenshot:

    Anyone know whats going on and how to fix it?
