We have recently upgraded a system HDD – it was 160GB, now 2TB. We upgraded as we were running low on space, mainly on /usr, and also on /home.
I prepared the new drive with a Live CD and GParted (and made some partitions larger). Then I cloned /, /usr, and /boot to the new drive using dd. The partition size of /usr on the old drive was 23GB, but I made it ~50GB on the new larger drive. However it seems there is now an inconsistency between what parted sees, and what fdisk etc see. All of the partition sizes are inconsistent, but /usr is way off, and /boot is as well. Is /? I can't quite tell. sda7 is 14G to df, but 15.2GB to parted.
Here's df -h:
harb@joan:~$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda7 14G 2.0G 12G 16% / none 12G 308K 12G 1% /dev none 12G 400K 12G 1% /dev/shm none 12G 456K 12G 1% /var/run none 12G 0 12G 0% /var/lock none 12G 0 12G 0% /lib/init/rw /dev/sda6 5.8G 140M 5.4G 3% /tmp /dev/sda1 230M 55M 164M 25% /boot /dev/sda9 37G 176M 35G 1% /scratch /dev/sda10 1.7T 185G 1.4T 12% /home /dev/sda5 23G 21G 992M 96% /usr
Here's a snapshot of the partitions from parted:

If you dd'd the whole thing with the partition table:
