If I make a Ghost image of my current drive on a larger hard drive
will it still work and provide the additional recording time?
Thanks

Use the Replay patch instead, and yes, you will increase storage space.

Good Luck!

No.

Use RTVPatch to do the ghosting, then it has an additional step to patch
the new disk so it knows about the extra space.

It won't work. The disk capacity is written as part of the image.
RTVPatch will correct this.
