VM Extended volume not reflecting change

Dear Experts,

I've extended the volume on one of our VMs from 500GB to 600GB (see screenshot) but it's not reflecting the change so it still thinks it only has 500GB capacity. I've tried refreshing and rescanning the disk.

VM is Win Server 2008 64-bit

diskmgmt of VM
Any ideas?

You need to extend the NTFS filesystem.

Follow below steps:

- Go to Command prompt
- Run "diskpart"
- Run "list volume"
- Run "select volume 2"   (volume might be different, enter correct one)
- Run "extend filesystem"


For more information on Diskpart and extend filesystem, read below article

1. Try RE-scanning the disks.

2. Restart the VM.

let me know....it could be a corrupt partition info, which does occur.
