We are running windows 2008 std in a VMWare environment.  Aftre building we determined that the C:\ needed to be increased from 20gb to 24gb.  We used the diskprt utility and in disk management program it is showing 24gb.  When you look at the properties of the disk it shows that the disk is still 20gb.  We have rebooted the server and this does not work.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is how we resolved the issue.  We added an additional GB so we had 5gb unallocated space.  We expanded it by 4gb (to keep it uniform with other server) leaving 1gb unallocated.  Now we see the additional 4gb of space that was not showing up before.
