are you certain the VM is not running on a snapshot.

please see my EE Article

HOW TO: VMware Snapshots :- Be Patient

another method would be to use VMware Converter, and create a V2V, at the same time you can specify the new disk size, and the OS partition will be increased as part of the conversion, and also clear up any snapshot file issues.

How do you increase the size of the virtual disk?
