I am trying to expand a disk on a virtual machine which is hosted in VMware. The option to expand is greyed out. Upon examination the disk name is appended with .00001.vmdk. As I researched it appears that this is caused by having a snapshot. I was getting a message that consolidation was required. I did this and it completed successfully, however did nit resolve the problem. I also created a snapshot and then “deleted all” - with the same result. I have found a couple of posting which talk about lost or corrupt snapshots, but I don’t seem to find a clear way to resolve this issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
