File system size after copying partition with etch beta 3 installer


i am not sure if this this the right place to ask. If there is a better
place, let me know.

i bought a new hard disk, and copied the partition from the old hard
disk to the new hard disk with the etch beta 3 installer copy partition
function.. The new hd is 160 GB, the old one 60 GB. Booting and
fsck.ext3 is fine.

Both hds have the same partitioning, except that the first primary
partition differs in size. This is the partition i copied. Now see
below: df reports the "1K-Blöcke" (1K-blocks) on the NEW hd which
corresponds to the old drive. fdisk shows the right number of blocks,
which is much bigger.

So probably etch installer uses dd to copy the data? The whole
filesystem is copied? How can i repair that, so that the filesystem is
extended to the size of the partition without re-defining and
re-installing the data? Is it possible?
