I have replaced my 250GB with a new 1TB harddisk.

I installed Windows 7, then asked to restore my PC to its former state.

I now have all my old files etc, but the HDD capacity is still showing 250GB like the previous harddisk?

How can I make the harddisk to use the whole space of 1TB, with my data still intact?

It looks like you have restored a partition. Use Windows 7 Computer namagement tool to expand the partition to 1tb.

This would work only if your partition is not the "primary" one. – ruffp Nov 26 '15 at 0:08
