I have a smaller 120GB drive which has run out of space, which I have imaged to a larger 500GB drive using:
dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=/dev/sda4 bs=32M
After mounting to /R500 df shows me 100% in use which I expected
/dev/sda4 117214656 117214656 0 100% /R500
I then ran parted /dev/sda4 and it shows me:
Disk /dev/sda4: 460GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: loop Number Start End Size File system Flags 1 0.00B 460GB 460GB reiserfs
I am a bit lost as to why the partition is showing the full drive size. I thought at this point I would have to resize the partition to fill the entire disk.
Can anybody shed some light?
