resize2fs new size too large to be expressed in 32 bits

After virtualizing a real computer with an old Linux I wanted to increase the partition size of the data drive. But I got this warning: resize2fs new size too large to be expressed in 32 bits

How to solve this? I started the VM with gparted-live.iso

# check file system
e2fsck -f /dev/sdb1
# auf 64 bit ändern
resize2fs -b /dev/sdb1
# increase partition .... wait :D / optional coffee
resize2fs -p /dev/sdb1
# check file system
e2fsck -f /dev/sdb1

Done :)
