VMWARE 5.1 extending the volume in Windows after allocating more space to the VM

Last Modified: 2015-03-13

We have a vmware environment and we have a server that is in the red space wise.
We have allocated more space in the VMware portal and when we go into windows to extend the volume we are not getting the option to extend.
We have disabled shadow copies on the server drive and still no option to extend.

New to this so any help would be grateful
