When I first installed parallels and XP, the default size for the virtual hdd was 8000mb (8gb). Well, I wanted to make that bigger but from within parallels if you edit the hdd it says you will lose all data. I assme that means the windows install is lost and will have to redo it again. It also said you can edit the size in the image tool app. So I opened that and put in I wanted the virtual drive to be 25000mb (25gb). I browsed to the virtual drive and let it do its thing. Later, I started up parallels and looked at the hdd size in windows and it still said 7.some gb, not 25. Any ideas what I might have done when I ran image tools the first time, and why didnt the size change from within windows? I opened image tools again and it shows the size in there at 25000mb still.
