Using the station to clone a 500gb drive to a 1tb SSD but the resulting ssd drive only shows 500gb and no option to free up the remaining space using mac os disk utility.

i have tried formatting the target disk so the partition is 1tb but to no avail.

what am i doing wrong?

Hi Dino,

Thanks for your question.

The station will clone the smaller driver exactly onto the larger one, any remaining space on the larger drive may then become unallocated. It could be that the Mac utility is too limited and cannot change the space, do you have a Windows or Linux PC you could try the drive in?
