No it wont, you will need to use the rest of the drive as a seperate partition.

Yes, no problem. Do a defragment of the larger drive after the cloning.

It's the other way around (larger to smaller drive) that will not work, if the files copied exceed the space on the smaller drive (obviously!). G

You need to tell it to use the full Partition, Me I would leave it and create a new partition with unused space
