    Hey!

    Just installed Windows on bootcamp, used the method with winclone to migrate it to an external drive.
    Now I have this weird situation where in disk management it shows my external drive with its full size (256GB) but the system shows only around 50GB.

    Any idea how to fix this ?

    That's really weird because it shows as 44GB at the top too.

    What I'd suggest is try extending that C: partition to the 128MB unallocated and hopefully it'll kick it into working? Keep me updated if possible, I'll run this by a few colleagues at work too and see if they have any ideas.

    Best wishes.

    Also in Finder on OS X, when you do Get Info on the Bootcamp volume, what does the total/spare size show as?

    Think my colleague found the solution online, matey. Let me know if it works. Open an administrator command prompt and try the below:

    C:\ > DISKPART
    DISKPART> List Volume
    DISKPART> select volume # (this is the number of the volume listed by the above ‘List Volume’ command)
    DISKPART> extend filesystem
    DISKPART> exit
