After a hard drive failure on a 500 GB hard drive, I restored the image onto a new 1TB hard drive.

Windows is showing the C: drive with 224 GB and partition D: with 225 GB.

I'm guessing that Windows doesn't know that it's on a 1TB drive now, so how do I get access to the missing 500GB?

Can you see unallocated space in Disk Management? (Start, type 'disk' choose 'Create and Format disk partitons' from Control Panel). If so extend 'D' to take up space...

Great thanks! Extended the volume, windows saw the spare space and allocated it.
