    Wrong disc size?

    I have just installed a rsync backup server with ubuntu server 12.04.

    I had to wait for the 2TB hdd to arrive, so i used a 80gb disc to set the system up.

    when the disc arrived, i used clonezilla with samba to clone the image over to the 2TB disc.

    Still, after changing image my disk shows the size of 72gb.

    What to do ? My guess is after i used clonezilla, the computer doesnt know it has a bigger disc.

    Forgot to tell wich computer i use.

    Its an old Lenovo/ibm pentium 4 thinkcentre.

    The disc is conneted with sata, but in bios it still tells me its a IDE.

    Bios update maybe?

    I think there is an option in Clonezilla "Expert" mode that allows you to clone from a smaller disk to a larger disk which will use all the space on the destination drive.

    If it were a desktop I'd use gparted to resize the cloned partition to fill the disk.
