I have a VM hosted on a Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V server. The VM is running out of space on the C: drive. Is this easy to resize or do I need some special tools to do it?

Thanks!

To expand c drive is not a difficult task however you might need to use dell xpart command line utility to expand the c drive further. You need to add storage in the same lun you have given to thw VM for system drive (c:\ drive)

Would it work for the x64 version? Sorry, I forgot to mention this.
