Update..I have picked the wrong drive for this task, as the wd 1tb is not sata with a usb adapter on it, rather, usb adapter soldered onto the drive..owell..concept is the same, and I can use a 1tb usb drive for backups... (still only paid $55 for it)
Process is as follows:
Boot from Ubuntu (Debian) live CD disk
Add root sudo passwd root
apt-get install gddrescue
locate existing source drive ls /dev/sd* (note value probably sda)
plug in 1tb passport usb drive
locate passport usb drive ls /dev/sd* (note new value sdb)
issue ddrescue command ddrescue /dev/sda /dev/sdb
When finished (2 to 3 hours), use gparted to expand the passport to 1tb partition.
Open passport drive, remove from case, swap into EEE
Hopefully bootup as normal but with 1tb now instead of 160gb.
