Some Kobos come from the factory with a 4GB card, but they only use the same size partition as the ones with 2GB cards, so it can't be right that the partition is resized to fit the card automatically by a factory reset. Also it would be a bad idea to do that, since the reason for using a smaller partition might be to avoid media faults located beyond the partition.
