Hi Friends.

I use Debian GNU/Hurd under Qemu, with a disk image that originally had 1,5
Gb. of size. Now, after more than a year of use it, the space on it is very

$ df -Th /
df: Warning: cannot read table of mounted file systems
Filesystem    Type    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
-                -    1.5G  1.1G  375M  75% /

My idea is create a clean Qemu disk image with, for example, 4 or 6 Gb. and
"clone" the disk image i'm using now. I tried first with 'dd' command, but
once the clonation is done, the new system only "see" the 1,5 Gb. that have
the original image. Isn't able to recognices the extra space that have the
new .img file where i duplicate it.

Searching for another solution i found a special live CD named CloneZilla.
looks like a good software for do Hard Disks clonations and copies, but all
the attemps i made with the two Qemu images ended with errors. I think that
CloneZilla "see" the disks like sda and sdb units, i don't know if this can
be the cause of the errors. My question is: Do you know if CloneZilla can be
used with a GNU/Hurd system?. And taking this opportunity: Do you know
another way for do what i pretend?.

As always, thanks you very much for your big kindness.
