I just recently changed the hard drive out on my MacBook Pro. Before doing so, I backed up my existing Vista/Boot Camp partition with WinClone. I restored the Mac OS partition onto the new drive, then used Boot Camp to allocate 80GB to Windows. I restored my WinClone backup to the newly created Boot Camp partition. The trouble is, I created an 80GB partition using Boot Camp, but after restoring with WinClone, that partition appears to be 60GB (the original size of the backed up Vista partition).

I have tried using CampTune to resize the partition, but CampTune thinks that it's already 80GB. But when I boot up in Vista, Vista sees it as 60GB. Additionally, when I look at the partitions in Disk Utility, Disk Utility sees it as 80GB.

So, the question is, how do I convince Vista that this is truly an 80GB partition? I'm tempted to use Partition Magic, but I'm afraid that I might damage the partition map and/or the OS X partition.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

My understanding is that the Disk Management utility in Vista can re-size partitions on the fly without any loss of data. Perhaps you can try that to get back the 20 Gb that Vista doesn't see.

Take a look here.

Regards.

Weird stuff. It must have something to do with the way WinClone creates the image. Disk Management sees the partition as 80GB, although Windows itself only sees it as 60GB. I ran a CHKDSK, hoping it would realize the discrepancy and repair, but no dice. I'm thinking it might be time to remove the partition, allow BCA to create a new 60GB partition, restore the image and then use CampTune to reallocate the the partitions at 80GB for the Windows partition.

That just seems too strange.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
