Hyper-V Increasing hard drive size
Posted on 2011-04-20
I am running windows server 2003 as a virtual machine (Hyper-V). I have reached capacity (30gb) on my allocated disk space (on the virtual machine)
I have stopped the virtual server in Hyper-V, right clicked and used the expand option to double the drive capacity (now shows as 60gb). After restarting the server and going into disk management, I now have my c drive and 30gb of unallocated space.
I have tried using the DISKPART command to extend the partition (extend size=2000) but I keep getting the message "The volume you have selected may not be extended. Please select another volume and try again"
Is there any way to get round this, any tool i can use (preferably free) which will simply merge to the two partitions and not affect anything in the process?
Thank You, looking forward to finding a solution!
