If you come to think of it (40)

The fact, that cloning a (let’s say) 40 GB partition onto a 750 GB partition, CAN leave you with an utterly broken MFT (insufficient disk space to repair master file table mirrors; CHKDSK aborted), doesn’t necessarily strengthen the trust in NTFS. I’m purely guessing, but apparently it’s not designed to adapt to such a change (rumors say Acronis can be the cause of it, seems plausible enough, since cloning like this usually doesn’t work without third party software anyway).
The only safe solution seems to be to remove the partition and create a new one and then format it. Which really wouldn’t be hard, if there wasn’t the “small feat” of copying everything somewhere else and returning it after.
