How many times you can expand HDD size on a VM?

Hi,

Is there any limitation of how many times you can expand a HDD on a vm or windows 2008 R2?

We have a vm server and one of the hard drive is out of space again. I had expanded this HDD several times before (10-15times may be). Now I need to put another 100-200GB

Thanks.

Kind of confused on this question..  Provided you have the space / data on the drive - you should be able to expand the drive as needed as many times as necessary.  I do recall that W2008, you can re-size on the fly where older require the system to restart.

HTH,

Kent

no there is no limitation on the number of times you increase the disk space.
the limitation only on the total size of the vmdk file, which is 2 TB for vsphere 5.
