Virtual Disk Drives/Partition Issues

Last Modified: 2016-01-29
I inherited a VMWare server environment where the old admin setup 1 hard disk and split that hard disk into two partitions for the OS Partition and the Data partition. It wouldn't be that bad, however the person only made the OS partition 40 GB and I'm constantly running into disk space issues. Windows will not allow me to extend the partition because it is at the beginning of the virtual disk and when I add more space through vSphere, it only allows to extend the Data partition. Does anyone have any suggestions on either how to actually get the OS partition extended or move it to a new virtual disk that I could add through VMWare? Thanks
