Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Firstly my apologies, that you had to wait, too long for a reply. This does occasionally occur and it is due to the vast number of posts on the site, asking for help.
Cloned my old Seagate 40GB to a new WD 160GB (both IDE) with two different tools (HDClone4 and Acronis Easy Migrate 7).
I am sure you realise that a Cloneof a HDD will only of course produce the same results, in way of performance etc, as was the original system.
Any faults on the original file system will be on the new system.
Before we proceed would you please confirm that ALL was well with the old HDD. Was it returning chkdsk errors, particularly bad sectors. In otherwords was the reason ONLY to increase the capacity of the HDD.
When you reply please include any details of the computer if branded make and model.

You will now on the new drive have apporx 120Gb of unpartitioned space, unless of course you have already dealt with that.
Do you still have the data on the original Seagate drive and how does that run in the machine.
If you do AND it was running OK without any errors on a full chkdsk and on a System file checker, and with all other checks OK. ie Driver errors in device manager etc, I would be inclined to format the new drive and start again.
However I would use either Seagate Disc Wizard or Western Digital`s version of Acronuis, both if which are free to use as you only need for either, one of those manufacturers drives.http://support.wdc.c...119&wdc_lang=enhttp://www.seagate.c...oads/discwizard
