After recently receiving a Dell 660, I cloned the drive to an SSD drive via EaseUS Partition Manager. Before the EFI partition was 500 MB, now it's 24.96 GB. I've also forgotten if the WINRETOOLS partition is suppose to be 27 GB.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I know that it's GPT now, but I've forgotten if it was GPT before.

Maybe it cloned the drive and not the partition only

Either it doesn't understand GPT or it's done a data clone (used space) would be my guess.

The problem was also that Windows was reporting 100% usage.... when in fact with gparted it was reporting far less usage and I was able to correct it.

How did you correct it?

I used a live cd of gparted and reduced the partition sizes, moving the excess from one partition to another to finally the desired main partition. I had to copy one of the partitions since gparted didn't recognize it in order to move the excess all the way.
