On VMware vShere Client I can see this errormessage:

"There is no more space for virtual disk My.vmdk
might be able to continue this session by freeing
disk space on the relevant volume, and clicking
Retry. Click Cancel to terminate this session"

A Esxi 41. host. I believe that that need to add space to VM.
I have a second datasore there is space for this VM. I'll allredy rezized the memory from 16GB to 8GB. I'd tried to add more space to VM disk but off course the Windows can't see it. At Snapshot manager I can't see any snapshots.

I believe that at this point I need to copy the virtual machine to the second datastore and  have bigger disks there (so that windows will see more diskpace).

How to perform this?
