Resizing A Virtual Disk
June 5, 2010 Leave a comment
I do use Virtual PC 2007 for hosting database and Continuous Integration servers. The last one was running out space.
Chose fixed size for a Continuous Integration server was really a mistake. I had to increase the size of the virtual disk. It wasn’t so easy!
I had to use VHD Resizer and also do some work to extend HD partition. This tool actually creates new blank partition so you have to use DISKPARTION tool to extend the main drive using the new partition volume. Follow this link, very helpful.
Note one thing, to work with DISKPARTION you need a stable virtual machine, with memory and space! My virtual machine was running out of space and I could extend partition using DISKPARTION tool. It only worked when I tried at the stable one!
