I'm new to Virtualbox but not the IT world so I'm a little confused about why the dynamic disk settings isn't growing.  I see that the actual size is 6GB but the virtual size shows 40GB however when I boot the operating system it says I'm running low on hard drive space.  The hard drive space in the guest operating system is only showing 7GB when I would assume it would show 40GB the virtual dynamic size settings.  Is this a known issue or am I not doing something right?  Guest OS is 2003 Windows server.
