I am using VM Workstation on Windows 8. I have windows 2012 VM that is running low in space.
My windows 8 has C: partition that runs on SSD, I have E: partition that runs on separate regular drive.
WIndows 2012 VM disk files are on SSD drive, but I want to add hard disk  with size of 40 GB to windows 2012 but point it to use the E: drive. I mean the 40 GB will be taken from E: Drive, since it will be used just to hold non dynamic data.

How can I do that in VMware Workstation ?

Thanks

Just follow this how-to from VMware

You just follow the Add Device > New Hard Disk - wizard and choose the location to store the disk during the creation of it... Step 8
