Extending primary drive of 2003 VM

Hi all,

I have a 2003 server that is running out of space on boot disk which incidentally is M: rather than C:

 I have tried using GParted but it fails.

As its a VM is there any other ways of achieving this?

Use Dell Extpart which would be the easiest option, Check out my blog post on this

You just need to replace C: with M: Drive.

Hope this helps.
