exchange 2013 under esxi 6

I have a VM Exchange server 2013(windows 2012) under ESXI server. Unfortunally not to much space .

Exchange DATABASEs (.edb) under E:\ .  C:\ drive divided 2 diffrent partition . E:\ is for .edb databases  and exchange Logs. Please look at the Picture.

I plan to extend only E:\ drive to 150 gb under esxi(vsphere) .
my first question is : can i extend E:\ drive where all our .edb databases?

First of all your HDD sizing seems wrong.  please move your database to C drive and shrink the C drive so you will get some free space then delete the database from E drive and create new drive using the free space which will be bigger than before as u r usng the shrinked space.
Then move it back to E drive.
Please check my article how to move database to other drive.

I'm afraid this has been implemented poorly!

You should really be using DISKS and not OS Partitions.

OS Partitions are legacy....

You should have

C: System OS ---> First VMDK (disk)
D: Exchange DB --> Second VMDK (disk)
E: Logs ---> Third VMDK (disk)

The above helps with performance, and also disk expansion.

The build of your Exchange Server is based on OLD LEGACY Physical Server design!
