Fellas, I have a running server 2003 on the C: drive. The disk space on this is 70GB. I bought a nice 300GB hot swap disk and used Clonezilla to clone the C: drive onto it, so that in the end I could get rid of the original C: drive and use the larger disk as the primary master. However, once I did that and booted into Windows, I noticed that it has cloned it but also the 300GB space has been 'reduced' to 70GB also!! How can I change this so that it shows the normal space it has available on it?

You need to use a program to resize the partition.  once you resize the partition to the physical size of the disk you should be good.  I don't have a recommendation off the bat, but a quick search should reveal a few to try.

Can I do the resizing of the partition after I've done the clone?

yes, because once the clone is finished, it treats it like it's always been there.  There shouldn't be anything special about a cloned partition over one that was created on the drive before.

You might also keep in mind that Clonezilla can handle this if you switch into expert mode and flip the -K1 toggle (I believe). Will re-size the HD up to max if you want. I did this just a couple of days ago.
