If I read DavidFor's post properly, the factory reset does not touch the partition size for the KOBOeReader partition so if the factory copy that creates the uSD card has a 2GB partition 3, it will not be resized on a factory reset. OTOH, if you manually resize it, that size will survive a factory reset.
