[PLUG] change inode info?

I should remember this from the "what is a file?" December meeting.  I've run 
into a problem backing up a precarious HD to another.  The target drive is 
500 GB, but I am running into "no space left on drive" after 182 GB.  

IIRC, the original filesystem may have been created by dd_rescue in the course 
of backing up a 200 GB drive with ~100 GB of data from a 111 GB partition.  I 
am trying to add another 101 GB from another drive and it is failing for lack 
of space.  cfdsk reports that the partition is ~500 GB, so I assume this is 
an inode problem.

Short of starting over with some other strategy is there anything I can do?

Rsync output below:
