    Cloned drive with clonezilla, size not updated

    I just cloned my ssd onto another ssd twice its size however windows reports the size as the same, and in partition manager from windows it wont allow me to expand only shrink the size

    The disk size in part manager is also the same size as the original drive

    That's exactly what "cloning" does -- creates an exact copy -- same format, same contents, same size.

    What program are you using? Duh....nevermind. Just saw it in the title!

    I would install Mini Tool Partition Wizard free and see what it says about the new disk. Sure sounds like the new disk is the same size as the original disk, though.

    What is the model number of the new drive?

    Clonezilla - Advanced Mode

    If the target disk size is larger than the source disk, you can try to use option "-k1" which will create the partition table proportionally in the target disk and turn on option "-r" to resize the file file system in the partition automatically. This is useful to make use all of the target disk size.
