i have a virtual machine in virtuabox and when i created it was only 10G, now i find myself needed more disk space.
i looked up online and this is what i found
if you have version 4 or higer, you can do it from the command line, these command i sent in the DOS terminal:
cd C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox
next i need to get the id for the hard drive i need to expand
VBoxManage list hdds
it will show you something like this:
Parent UUID: base
State: locked write
Usage: CentOS_ISPConfig3 (UUID: c01248b6-f893-4e82-99a0-182c0a2182b7)
so now you do this
VBoxManage modifyhd 508cd25e-c666-4e54-9639-3f2d32eff210 --resize 20080
and thats when i go this errorVBoxManage.exe: error: Resize hard disk operation for this format is not impleme nted yet!
anyone know how to increase the size on a vmdk?
but if you have a .vdi disk, you will get a success message like this:
