Sorry, that's rep factor and not blocksize. I think you need to copy the files.

 I understand that when files are created, blocksizes can be modified from default.  What
happens if you modify the blocksize of an existing HDFS site?  Do newly created files get
the default blocksize and old files remain the same?  Is there a way to change the blocksize
of existing files; I'm assuming you could write MapReduce job to do it, but any build in facilities?
