Increase OS partition size in Windows 2008 VM in VMWare
Posted on 2015-02-11
I have VMWare V5.1 with several VMs. One of them is Windows 2008 Server and it is running out of space and I need to increase the size.
When I check the storage section in VShpere Client program, it shows that is about 67GB available. In Windows 2008 Virtual Machine, I have about 16GB left. I ran DiskMgmt and right clicked on the drive C, but I don't see "Extend" option.
With that I have two questions.
(1) Why Extend option is recessed?
(2) If I extend, knowing that there is 67GB total available, how much space in GB would be safe number? Is there a danger of assigning all 67GB to this W2008 VM?
