I accidentally increased the allocation for hard disk 1 by an additional 100gb that I had intended to use for hard disk 2.  How to decrease the allocation for HD1 so that I can use that space for HD2.  The space on hard drive 1 (c: drive/server o.s.) is still unallocated within the Windows server OS storage management.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

There really is no utility to accomplish this, there is only converting the entire virtual machine.  Shame on VMWare.
