/extra is 40GB. I need /extra to be /700GB

This is on a server running as a virtual.

I'm going to umount /extra
remove the entry in fstab

/dev/extra/extra                    /extra                    ext4    defaults        0 0

Then I'm going to shutdown the VM. Delete the 40GB drive. Recreate the drive with the new size 700GB

Then I'll turn back on the VM, and recreate /extra

The question is, are there other caveats to look out for, before I recreate /extra. Is there other things I need to remove in other locations on the redhat OS, before recreating /extra again?
