Cloned factory drive with Acronis True Image and have partition questions before I replace

Hi all-I like my Lenovo G555, but wanted a bigger drive. Got a Seagate Momentus XT 500Gb and put it in an external enclosure.  I ran the Seagate discWizaard (rebranded Acronis) and left it set to auto create the drive structure during the clone.  My original factory drive had a C partition set to 105 Gb and a D partition set to 29 Gb plus a hidden partition and some stray unused space (?).  Now after the clone I see a 328 Gb partition and a 91 Gb partition on the new drive.  I am wondering if I should re-run the clone and set the Acronis software to custom so that it doesn't upsize the hidden partition.

As it is it looks like I am losing a fair amount of storage space to the hidden partition.  I did see that when left to auto it would add generous amounts of space to each partition based on the total drive capacity.

hi lenutto

can you check if you have any unallocated space? also, try one key recover button, if it works, i believe you won't need to re-clone.
