Go to start......control panel......administrative tools......Click on computer management
Go to storage on left side and click on disk management. What for it to populate.
You should see the drive and see an unallocated space. At this point you should be able to right click and choose what you want to do (format and assign drive letter).

If your cloning software does not expand partition to full size then you will need a 3rd party software like partition magic to stretch the partition completely out

The valid question I should have also asked is if the poster wants the entire drive as 1 partition or 2 or more on the same physical drive.
We will have to wait on his response.
His response will determine the course of action.

"But even though I replace a 40Gb drive with a 160Gb drive it still shows only 34.2Gb total space. Where is the rest of my new hard drive"
it looks like they want the whole drive as one. Cloning software is notorious for doing as I stated and in a XP enviroment there is no way possible to resize a partition without using Partition Magic * or later or another 3 rd party Patition software.
It is always great to work with you 123Runner as always.
