Increase virtual disk size by accident with vm active.

Hi ,

A new client has accidentally increased the disk space on his Parallels VM whilst it was in active in Windows. Of course its frozen and not sure what to do next. If i recall historically does it not corrupt the vm, rendering it unbootable? I dont think he took any backups so i wondered if there were any steps to recovering the virtual machine. It's running Windows 10 on a Mac book Pro.

Did you already try to simply have him reset the virtual machine?
