    Enlarging disk size in VMware Fusion.....
    I started getting warning messages when working in Windows (XP Pro) that I was running out of disk space. I increased the disk size from 20-40gb and wrongly assumed that the C: drive in Windows would follow suit.
    I seem to remember from my old Windows days there was a program called Partition Magic which did this. Is it the same procedure on Windows within a Mac, or is there a different way?

    For future reference: When needing to increase the size of the Windows VM in Fusion, you use the VM tools provided. No need for Partition Magic or whatever it was that you used.
