Restore to different drive size?

Just had a secondary hard drive die in a system. If I replace the drive with a larger size, can VEB restore the volume to the larger drive? Will it allocate all the new space as free?

Hi BCT-Tech,

Yes it possible. You can either expand the existing volume or create a new partition via windows disk manager after recovery.
