Depending on how the disk is structured, there are several options. Tools like gparted allow you to create new partitions or extend existing partitions. You probably need to know, however, how the disk is partitioned, whether it contains a volume manager and what filesystem types are used.

I would start by attaching the disk to a running Linux system that has gparted, and use that tool to analyze the disk structure. Since you still have the source disk, you can even take risks and explore the tool's features and capabilities.
Yes, the source disk half size of destination disk; disk filesystem is ext4; 1 partition; primary partition; the destination drive was originally luks formatted, but after cloning to that drive, luks encryption was lost and now it mounts as '/dev/media' .

Been trying to use parted to resize disk, but won't allow me too.

format:
Code:

"MSDOS MAX SIZE EXCEEDED" Tried smaller amounts, but unless I go to around 1TB, doesn't work.
**UPDATE**: after repartitioning it at a slightly larger size than it was, I can no longer mount it.
