cloning old hdd in a new bigger hdd with dd

Post by jaimealm » Fri Oct 17, 2014 2:37 pm

Hi,

My hdd(2Tb) looks like it starts failing so i bought a new hdd(3Tb), and to minimize the change of drives, i use a live cd (ubuntu) to make a dd copy, and everything went ok, the nas boot and works ok.

The problem i face now, is that i'm not able to increase the partition to take the 3Tb.

Can anyone tell me how to increase the size of that partion?. I've just install mdadm in ubuntu so i can work work with the raid but i don't know how to continue.

Thank you.
