I have been trying to clone a 80 Gb disk to a 160Gb disk (IDE) for my laptop via USB. It seemed to go OK but it would not boot. With the new disk in the laptop I have used Paragon and Acronis recovery disks and they both report the disk as 16.384TB! I have tried formatting using the XP setup disk which reports the correct size but there is an error message at the end of the format. Is this disk faulty or can it be rescued? Paragon HDM 11 shows 2 partitions on the disk 2TB and 14.384TB.
