Existing XP VM needs more space
Posted on 2014-04-16
I created a XP Virtual Machine with 10GB of space on VMware ESXi V4.
I have backed up a standalone PC with XP using Windows Backup and the size is 12GB and I need to restore the 12GB of backup file into this XP VM. I wanted to increase the hard disk size in vShpere client, but it is recessed and I can't change it.
Beside erasing this VM and recreate a new one from the scratch with enough disk space (which will take less than a hour), what other options do I have?
