I need to expand the virtual disk on a  VMware Guest OS to over 1TB. I am using VM converter 4.0 to expand the virtual hard disk inside the volume. The maximum size that I am allowed in the VM converter is 1000GB. I need it to be 1300GB. I am able to have a volume that is over 1TB if the sum of all the volume are over. IE. I can have a volume with three virtual disk 800GB, 400GB, and 400GB with a  total  volume of 1.6 TB.

I need a virtual disk that is 1200TB in side. Is this a VM limitation on Virutal disk? How can I do this is it is not a limitiion?
