Expanding local storage size after VM migration to a new host

Hi All,

I recently migrated our Virtual Machines to a new host using Veeam, however whenever I attempt. However one issue I do have is that the migrated VM's sitting on the new host have still retained their existing local stroage capacity even after expanding the HDD size from with the VMSphere resource allocation. (See attached).

Any ideas on how I expand the local storage size?

Thanks for the response Hanccocka,

Ti clarify I will need to use GParted in order to carry out this exercise as right clicking on c:Partition - extend volume is greyed out.
what does your disk manager look like?

is there any unallocated space after the c: drive

GParted is one of many tools that can be used. I give it as an example.

Hi Hanccoka,

Your last response alerted me to an error I made, It was in fact the incorrect sever's computer management I was actually looking at and posted earlier.

I have now attached the relevant one.

Is it now just a matter of selecting 'Extend Volume' is this safe to do?

Yes it is safe and almost instantaneous
That screenshot is much better. Completely safe to do in real time. Extend away.

make sure you have a backup, before any partition modification.
