    bizzare hard drive upgrade issues (macbook)
    im posting here as a desperate man trying to find some answers to resolve this issue i am having. i recently upgraded the factory 80 gb hard drive to a western digital 250gb scorpio sata drive. i cloned the factory drive over to my new drive using a logicube hard drive cloner.

    everything booted up fine and all seemed well except for the fact that when viewing total/available space for the new hard drive, it still thinks there is an 80 gig drive installed. when i check the hard drive system properties however, it does indeed show a 250gb drive. i called applecare and they seem stumped as well.

    any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Is it possible that the cloner created an 80GB partition? If you go into disk utility can you create a second partition or see the remaining space?
