Drive format question

I purchased the 500GB drive to replace a 320GB failed drive which I submitted the RMA for. My problem is I used a complete set of backup discs to restore(WIN XP) the complete HD and the HD only shows about 300GB vs the full amount of around 500GB. I would like to regain the full 500GB of the drive with preference making the reclaimed 200GB as drive D:\ How can I do this?

You can use this tool to restore the capacity

Thanks for the reply. Will I retain all my working windows restore or will I need to reinstall everything?

AFAIK it will not keep the data so it’s recommended to backup before running the tool
