you may use Edit Disk feature, it allows you to compact, convert or expand an existing VHD file.

oh... sorry, it seems to be a new option for Hyper-V on 64-bit W2K8.

i can use this feature in HV, but i didn't think it is not available in Virtual Server 2005 R2.

if possible, you may try Hyper-V.

hope it helps,
bbao

This is not possible in your version. As a work around to this, you can create a new vhd with the size and type that you want and then use a disk imaging program such as ghost to copy to the new disk.
