Expansion of Thick Provision Eager Zeroed Drive

I have a VM that will be cloned shortly.  However, the drive needs to be expanded from 125GB to 300 GB.  Is it possible to expand a Thick Provision Eager Zeroed Drive?  Right now the option to do so is greyed out.

Yes, it's always possible.

Do you have snapshots?  If so, delete the snapshots and try again.

Once you add the space, don't forget to expand it at the OS level as well.
