Upgrading my Hard Drive by Cloning - but a problem

I successfully upgraded from a 60GB to a 320GB hard drive using the Cloning program Clonzilla. Or at least I thought I did.
I now find that the capacity of the 320GB drive actually reads as 60GB.  Where are the remaining 260GB gone? How do I access them? Must have done something wrong.

Thats right, totally safe to format it (drive E) your original C drive will be untouched.

Your clone has done exactly that and created the 60gb disk on your larder device. you will now need to create or extend the partition to make the extra space useable.
Try:

Have you checked in disk management (right click ion My Computer > manage > Disk management)? It may be that the rest of the 260GB is unpartitioned space, if you are using windows 7 it should be a simple case of expanding the main volume, if your are using Windows XP or earlier you may need to use a 3rd party application like Parition magic to expand the volume.

Have checked disk management. I chose option to extend partition and clicked on it. Not sure what I was doing, but I am sending you a screenshot of the result. At the same time when I look at the properties of the C drive they remain 60GB, not 320GB

if you right click on that free space you will have the opportunity to make it active and format it for use.

When I right click I get two options: 1. New Logical Drive. 2. Delete Partition.
I dont see an option to mark the partition as active

sorry, i didn't word it right, you want to create the new logical drive. you will end up with the extra space looking like another drive (i.e E:)

Done that. It is  now drive E.
 When I try to access it I am told that disk E is not formatted.
Should I format it?
 I assume that if I do all the material on Drive C: will not be affected?
