I have a Windows XP VMWare session with a 10GB virtual drive. I need to change that to 15GB or 20GB. Its not teh partition I need to change but the actual disk drive, like upgrading your physical disk drive on a computer.

I don't want to have to reinstall the Windows OS and all the applications if I can avoid it...

Thanks...

If you're using a virtual HDD, it should expand dynamically. No need for intervention on your part.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

this tutorial is fantastic! i had the same issue as you, and if you're not set to dynamic then this is a great step-by-step guide to resizing the virtual disk, pretty painless as well.

there should be a downloadable pdf file titled "resizing a virtual disk for windows guests" thats the one!
