Cloned disk thinks it's smaller than it is?
I just clonezilla'd my fog servers system over on to a larger HD.
Linux still sees it as a smaller drive.
When I type I get this output...
This is showing 226G as the HD size when in fact it is now 500G.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 226G 143G 72G 67% /
varrun 474M 216K 474M 1% /var/run
varlock 474M 0 474M 0% /var/lock
udev 474M 40K 474M 1% /dev
devshm 474M 0 474M 0% /dev/shm
I have gParted the drive so that the main partition is about 490G?
Can anyone suggest what I have missed.

If you've extended the partition you'll need to extend the filesystem to match, maybe : resize2fs /dev/sda1

I moved the swap file to the end with gparted and expanded my /dev/sda1 to fill the gap.

Funnily enough I have just run that after a google search.

Just finished and that has now worked.

No worries, you're welcome.

might be worth checking if there is an option in clonezilla to make full use of avaliable space (norton ghost for example allows this) so you wont need to manually resize partitions after imaging
